Install wireless smart-meters for electricity, water, gas, oil, etc. and monitor quantities, cost and CO2 footprint, and have perfect energy management system. Program some assets to go off during non-working hours or weekends. E.g. by time programming one coffee machine with one smart-switch, you can save 190€ per year. Knowing that smart-switch costs 95€, your ROI is only 6 months, plus you have done something for the environment. If you monitor your machines, GreenTwin will calculate the energy consumption per product. If you connect GreenTwin with your ERP, you will know what is the cost of energy per product and what should happen to the product price or profit if energy costs go up.
MONITOR AND OPTIMISE ALL ENERGY CONSUMERS
SEE AND CONTROL YOUR CO₂ – FOOTPRINT
IMPROVE POWER FACTOR EFFICIENCY
USE GreenTwin TO GAIN ISO 50001
See real-time power consumption of electricity, gas, oil, water, etc. Program creates alarms about anomalies, bad quality of electricity and prevents failures of machinery. It can safely use free cool air at night to cool down the building or pre-cools the building when the price of electricity is lower. Enables the user to see all relations and graphs in Business Intelligence (BI) module, compare data by time filters or seek for relevant relations such as “power consumption and number of employees” or “monthly revenue in relation to power consumption” to find the best price/performance ratios.
Smart building automatizes shades or dims lighting by tracking the natural light with LUX meters or presence of people in rooms. Switches on/off scenarios to save energy or to improve micro-climate conditions based on the air quality and the number of people (conference room, production site, offices, etc). Pre-cool or pre-heat a building or rooms when electricity is cheaper and exclude nonworking days. Algorithms are including your temperature desires and settings, outside temperature and the weather prediction, working days, working hours. It reduces electricity peaks by automated staggered start of the machinery/devices. Automatizes irrigation systems, inside and outside lighting, it even allows to power on/off all the computers at any given time
You will also know how much energy is wasted if machines or computers are on standby. Since GreenTwin is monitoring outside and inside temperature and windows actuators can be applied, in summer time, when building is cooking in the afternoon, Greentwin will open windows when outside temperature drops below inside temperature.
That will cool you facilities for free. If natural cooling is insufficient, Greentwin can startup AC at 4AM and run it until 6AM when electricity is cheaper. Same rules can be applied for winter time with heat-pump system. Once there is a sufficient data about energy habits, combining that data with weather predictions, maximum optimisation of energy consumption can be made and savings will be big. Same pattern can also be used for planed purchase of electricity, gas and oil which can lower your purchase prices. When connecting water meters to GreenTwin, you wil not only monitor and control consumption, you will also be notified about leaking. Leaking toilet tank can silently waste up to 15 cubic meters of water every month and that can easily cost more than a toilet tank itself.
Creates a cleaning plan by hour and by room so that the cleaning staff have direct and accurate plan of cleaning. It is also very useful for checking the quality of cleaning via tablet or PC. Increases production as it reduces staff handover time, all task completed are written and accessible, only the name of worker is changed. By installing some IoT’s, application will automatically create and send work orders in case of faulty light bulbs, water/tap leakage, anomalies in power circuits, bad batteries of fork-lifters and UPS, tyre wear-out or periodic service of vehicles, low ink of copy machine and printers, etc. Automatic creation of work orders for gardening, (with our algorithms and some IoT’s we can calculate when the grass is ready to be cut and will order a mowing on non-rainy day).
