Sensors and Controls

Companies are recognizing that in recent years a variety of energy metering and control technologies have enabled users to collect and analyze consumption on a real time basis and, in some cases, to control building operations from a central management location. Good Energy believes there are significant cost savings and benefits by applying these systems which include:

  • Early identification of energy waste and cost reduction 
  • Direct control and oversight of installed equipment 
  • Data supporting economic benefits of energy-related capital improvements
  • Collection of data to support longer-term planning of energy-related projects
  • Facilitating participation in demand response and energy efficiency programs

Good Energy Monitoring Services:

  • Develop a web-based, user-friendly, searchable energy information reporting systems to increase the availability of energy use and cost information with the aim of reducing energy expenditures at each facility  
  • Identification of trends over time, cataloging decreased carbon emissions, and demonstrating a comparison of energy usage among locations covering all types of opportunities and operations for all school facilities 
  • Monitor and benchmark energy/utility consumption and demand performance of all current and future facilities through intelligent metering  
  • Assess and evaluate the performance of all existing and future energy optimization or curtailment initiatives, building control system, and generating asset for each building and/or facility section  
  • Evaluate all current renewable energy resource utilization systems and/or gather actual energy use data necessary to target the best application of renewable energy technology upgrades and/or new systems and applications  
  • Provide a technical energy audit and development of a project plan, and the design for the minimization of the schools energy-related duties, such as systems maintenance, planning, and cost budgeting and allocation  
  • Obtain interval meter data, through real-time monitoring systems, that will enable local facility personnel to fully understand and evaluate how efficient or inefficient their systems are operating  
  • Collect facility information needed to conduct building performance analysis and related electricity, natural gas, and water consumption information, heating oil and other heating fuels from end users or vendors of such fuel, and any other building related energy consumption  
  • Provide a web-based means of reporting and illustrating utility and other energy information from multiple sources and formats to a wide audience in order to consistently measure results of conservation programs, track system efficiency and emissions, prioritize energy reduction strategies, and troubleshoot problems  
  • Provide information in a structure and form suitable for reporting and distributing information in the form of reports on a regular basis into standard forms and customized spreadsheet tools  
  • Provide graphic and technical information designed to compare energy consumption building by building, facility by facility or account by account, as well as vehicle fleet fuel consumption where possible
