New Energy Saving Solution
- Energy Saver is designed to assist organisations with reducing their energy costs through effective energy management -
• Organisations that installed Automatic Monitoring & Targeting (AMT) services identified, on average, carbon savings of 12% and cost savings of up to 10%*
• Over 40% of the UK adult population regularly use a PC at work**
o 18% of these PCs are not switched off at night or weekends**
o 13% are not switched off on some days each week**
o Approximately 1.5 billion kWh is wasted annually, costing around £115 million**
• Government estimates show that replacing current electrical equipment with more energy efficient products could save 40,000 tonnes of carbon per year**
o Lighting costs can be cut by as much as 15 per cent by simply turning off lights in rooms and corridors that aren't being used**
This week (19th March) sees the launch of 'Energy Saver', the new energy management solution from Landmark Information Group. Energy Saver has been specially designed to help organisations reduce their energy costs through more effective management of existing energy supplies.
The simple, full-service solution can, on average, help companies reduce expenditure on energy by 20%. Energy Saver provides a breakdown of where and when organisations are using energy enabling areas for streamlining or cost cutting to easily be identified.
David Mole, Director of Landmark Environmental Due Diligence, said: "The launch of Energy Saver is very positive news for organisations looking to make cost savings on their energy bills and for those wanting to be more socially responsible by minimising their carbon output. Companies have the potential to make tremendous reductions in their energy consumption which will potentially save tens, if not hundreds, of thousands of pounds.
"As Lord Kelvin, the celebrated physicist and engineer, famously said, 'To measure is to know; if you cannot measure it, you cannot improve it'. This quote sums up what Energy Saver offers our clients - the ability to easily identify areas where energy output can be reduced and cost savings and energy efficiencies can therefore be made. Government estimates put potential energy savings at 40,000 tonnes of carbon per year, simply by replacing equipment with more energy efficient products. With energy worth £1.6bn wasted each year, there are not only considerable energy savings to be made, but significant financial savings too. Energy Saver can enable organisations to do just that."
Energy Saver works through the installation of a range of smart meters which capture information about an organisation's energy consumption and generation, looking at eight different modules, such as incoming feed, renewable generation, air conditioning, lighting, desktop IT, central IT systems, office peripherals, gas and water. Detailed reports, including analysis, are provided, enabling users to control and automate the management of specified metered appliances.
The software gives an up-to-the-minute overview of the organisation's performance with a comprehensive breakdown of energy usage in real time. Users can therefore easily pin-point how much energy is being used by heating, lighting and IT equipment at any given time and easily map their progress against specified targets.
Energy Saver forms part of Landmark's 'Carbon Counter' software solution products. Launched at the beginning of 2010, over 300 organisations across both public and private sectors have incorporated Carbon Counter - CRC Compliance to help ensure that they are fully compliant with Carbon Reduction Commitment requirements.
