SmartGreen’s EPADS is a state of the art platform that makes energy management easy through clear, detailed visualization and analysis of the performance of all contributors to the energy bill* of the organization.
EPADS ™ (Energy Performance Analytics and Display System) continuously scans the organization’s systems and alerts in real-time for malfunctions, performance fault and energy waste.
Exposing the major contributors of energy waste enables the organization to significantly reduce avoidable expenses. “What can be measured can be managed & controlled”.
Clear visualization of energy consumption and savings raises the awareness of the entire organization and has a positive marketing and public image impact.
EPADS is the perfect Measurement and Verification (M&V) tool for continuous energy and operational improvements due to its ability to accurately measure, correlate and compare current and historical data.
* Energy consumers such as: industrial and commercial HVAC, refrigeration and freezing systems, compressors, furnaces, incinerators, lighting, computers, motors, etc.
How does it work?
EPADS is a software-based system that is quickly installed and does not interfere with the daily work routine of the organization.
EPADS continuously gathers physical data from various sources, such as energy meters, sensors and controllers and then correlates these with other meaningful parameters such as occupancy, shift schedules, temperature and relative humidity and electricity tariffs, and so forth.
The system analyses the data and performs advanced calculations in order to identify the main sources of energy waste (such as degradation of machine efficiency).
Each energy waste event is labeled with a price-tag impact on the organization’s profit margin, whether directly through energy waste or indirectly through reduced worker productivity (uncomfortable employees are less productive, that’s a fact!).
