19 Oct Case Study: Critical Infrastructure Monitoring and Control (Call Center)Reading Time: 2 minutes
Why do we need Critical infrastructure monitoring and control?
WHY Is there a need to protect the HVAC and lighting systems?
These equipments that run throughout the day to help us need some extra care too to not only ensure longevity but also other factors like:
· Health and comfort of the occupants
· Save energy and operational costs
· Reduce carbon footprint
Transforming static assets like HVAC RTU’s, main lighting areas, and critical infrastructure with Smart Monitoring and Control offers numerous financial benefits to a customer from an Operational Expense (OPEX) and Capital Expense (CAPEX) perspective.
You can read our success stories with Financial Institutions, Hotels and Data Centers here.
Below is a snippet of our success story with a leading Call-center:
Customer’s Call Center located in Indianapolis consumed approximately $145,000 of energy annually, equal to 5.4 million kBtu’s, resulting in a relatively high Energy Usage Intensity (EUI) of 65 kBtu/Sq. Ft, significantly higher than well performing buildings of similar construction in this climate zone.
Consideration of usage patterns, occupancy and our previous experience in similar facilities suggested estimated
· OPEX (Energy & M&R) Savings of $29,000 per annum
· Simple Payback in Years (with cost of SAAS) – 2.34 Years
Note: The actual savings came out much higher than the original estimates.
By implementing installation, programming and on-boarding of IoT devices including many of their critical assets into EM.Core, we were able to achieve great results.
The savings came from three key areas:
· Energy Savings
· Operational Savings
· Reduction in FM staff shifts
The Actual Payback in Years (with cost of SaaS). – 1.74 Years
