Buildings typically consume 2-5 times more energy than predicted at design stage. Atamate data closes the performance gap by informing design and by providing data that can be used to optimise the energy efficiency of building services.
A basic sensor array for each zone of a building measures temperature, humidity, ambient light and occupancy. While any sensor can be incorporated, the most common additions are for air quality monitoring by measuring carbon dioxide, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and window opening.
Mains electricity and gas usage is monitored so that energy consumption can be itemised. MID metering allows landlords and building managers the information to raise invoices for individual units.
ABI Heartbeat provides reports using either bespoke or pre-formatted charts so an owner can monitor energy use and demonstrate compliance with regulatory guidelines on emissions or on working conditions.
