Monitoring and targeting

“The service has been very good and the outcomes and recommendations concise, accurate and very useful.”

Mark Norman, Former Environmental Manager


The challenge

Anglia Ruskin University has campuses in Chelmsford and Cambridge and over 31,000 students.  It is one of the largest universities in the East of England, and a large provider of part-time education.3450_jt10-aru-pic - - becky

TEAM software was being used to monitor energy use in conjunction with manual meter reading and invoices - a labour intensive process that did not provide reliable data.  Timing, accuracy and accessibility were major obstacles, in particular the lack of metering for electricity on a building level.

The solution

The Green Consultancy was commissioned to advise on the implementation of automatic meter reading (aMR) and monitoring and targeting (aM&T).

We carried out detailed feasibility studies and provided detailed recommendations for both aMR and aM&T as effective ways to automate and improve the management reporting and M&T functions and to achieve annual savings estimated at 891,500 kWh and 320 tonnes of Carbon Dioxide.

The results

The university implemented these recommendations and the systems were commissioned with the intention of linking them to web enabled software. 3450_jt11-aru-vhf - - becky

Manual meter reading was eliminated, freeing up direct labour, providing reliable data and allowing effective energy management and waste detection.

This allowed the University to:

  • improve on savings being achieved through bill validation/checking
  • make new savings through early detection of waste and poor performance
  • target its energy savings effort on a building by building basis
  • quantify the achievements of its energy management programme
  • provide meaningful utility reports to higher management
  • procure its fuels more efficiently
  • institute a system for sub-billing its departments

The reaction

Mark Norman

"We have used The Green Consultancy for two investigative projects focusing on energy management, metering, Building Management Systems and plant issues. The service has been very good and the outcomes and recommendations concise, accurate and very useful.”
