Virtual Energy Manager


Strata Assist is your Virtual Energy Manager

Background


An important cost base of many businesses and products, especially industrial facilities is their energy costs. With COVID-19 changing our work patterns and how assets are managed, there is no gainsaying that if your site’s energy costs are not properly managed, your business will not only be loosing more money, but be losing its ability to meet its annual sustainability targets

Remote working implies that the use of digital strategies to capture energy use and management across an asset becomes imperative

Metering, Monitoring and Targeting (MM&T)


Control Energy Consumption & Cost

Background


MM&T is a management system for controlling energy consumption and cost.

By effectively metering and sub metering utility intensive processes, facilities and buildings, we can identify an increase (or decrease) in energy use, specifically locating how, when and where energy waste occurs.

Our application of MM&T allows you to carry out existing business and process function with improved control while improving awareness of energy consumption and cost.

How we can help


  • Helping to identify and control energy usage
  • Energy consumption reduction strategies & Projects
  • Performance and diagnostic tools for process optimisation
  • Planning future changes
  • Recording and reporting how energy changes have occurred in the past and plans to target specific areas of wasted energy

Benefits


  • Opportunity for significant savings
  • Real time reporting via Strata - a continuous monitoring environment providing live system updates
  • Reports to consolidate group utility costs, carbon emissions and benchmark performance toward best practice
  • Improved forecasting using multiple linear regression in Strata

Deep Dives


Utility Reduction Deep Dive Assessment

Background


Our deep dive sessions have proved to be hugely successful events, identifying large scale savings while utilising stakeholder's knowledge and experience on site

Each deep dive session identifies an extensive cost reduction road map with clear implementation plans to create a step change in eco-efficiency through integrated opportunities analysis with focus on processes, people and the site

Typically lasting around a week, each session is the initial step in a continuous improvement process focused on utility and waste reduction

How we can help


  • Data analysis and site base line setting with identification of maximum utility saving in terms of costs (£), energy (kWh) and carbon footprint (ton.CO2)
  • Production of site process map
  • Identification of pinch points and integration opportunities for all key utility flows
  • Current metering, telemetry and front-end software review with gap analysis
  • Savings opportunities review to prioritise low cost / no cost which are considered low risk in terms of implementation

Benefits


  • Significant reduction of total current consumption / costs in Boiler fuel, electric power, water, waste water and process effluent
  • Continuous improvement process focussed on utility and waste reduction
  • Documentation of extensive cost reduction road map with clear support / resources across site
  • Key Stakeholder engagement and utilisation
