Act

It’s rare to find buildings, in particular, that do not have immediate opportunities for reductions in utility waste and thus emissions.

Controls are often problematic. They may not have been commissioned correctly or they may have been adjusted incorrectly by someone unaware of the intended operation of the building’s services.

So, process changes are the first thing to address in a decarbonisation roadmap. Tune the building or plant to operate at its sweet spot, minimising utility consumption and thus emissions. A measurement system is key, without one it’s difficult (even impossible) to determine whether changes made have had the desired impact.

It is naïve to assume that once fixed, issues will not reoccur. Waste will creep back in so a systematic efficiency programme is required to keep the lid on emissions.

ecoDriver

The granular energy data (and other utility data) captured by ecoDriver provides a forensic trail that clearly illustrates what energy consuming equipment has been operated and when.

Quite often building occupiers are surprised to find that their assumption, that the building automation system has been operating the building’s services, in an energy efficient manner, is wrong. But this can usually be rectified quite easily.

The next challenge, which many ignore, is to ensure that energy waste does not creep back in. To do this requires a systematic process, week-in, week-out and this is handled via the ecoDriver audit module, with minimum effort for maximum benefit.

Trusted By

Software to enable you to
understand your energy performance

ecoDriverLite

ecoDriver Lite provides a simple entry level option for organisations who would like to take their first small step into understanding their buildings energy performance.

Your Page

Select from a number of chart options and create your own homepage displaying the information important to you and how you manage your buildings energy.

Charts

Simple and easy to understand charts to give you an ‘at a glance’ view of performance. Including daily, weekly, monthly and yearly energy profiles with targets normalised by occupants or GIA.

Reports

A suite of reports that can be manually run or exported. These reports can also be scheduled within ecoDriver Standard to generate automatically e.g. every Monday at 8am for the previous week.

Trend

Forensically analyse energy profile data e.g. kWh, Power, Current, Voltage. ecoDriver Standard can also support IoT data e.g. temperature, humidity, occupancy and air quality.

Notes

Record issues, anomalies and their causes, to supplement a buildings operational log book.

ecoDriverStandard

In addition to the features in the ecoDriver Lite version, the standard version includes the following features.

Dashboard

Utilise the ecoDriver widget in a digital signage system to communicate with a wider audience. The ecoDriver RISE Vision plugin can be incorporated with a number of other widgets. A separate RISE vision account is required.

Audit

Build your ‘energy champions’ team and work collaboratively to identify and resolve inefficient operation using the ecoDriver audit module. The audit module becomes your building operations logbook and tracks who has done what and when.

Comfort

It is not just about energy, what about comfort? Get feedback from occupants directly from their mobile phones to understand how building control settings are being received and whether adjustments cause discomfort e.g. lowering heating set points.

Manual Meter Readings

Where automated meter reading is not possible, organisations can manually record meter readings across estates to aid tenant billing. Automated error checking and authorised sign off flows minimise the potential for mistakes.

Data

Integrate with other business systems (e.g. ERP, reporting systems etc.) using the ecoDriver API or by exporting the data in CSV format.

Powerful Alone, Better Together

Understand

On the road to decarbonisation, information, the combination of data and context, is your best friend.

The more we know about your organisation, its uses of energy and it’s consumption, the more significant opportunities we have to understand performance and facilitate change.

Transform

With your decarbonisation programme in full swing, we can now begin to identify technology to transform CO2e performance, from better to best in class.
