Abstract or Summary*for basic monitoring

It is a statutory requirement that all Irish public bodies report annually to Sustainable Energy Ireland (SEAI) on energy performance. To facilitate this, an on-line monitoring and reporting (M&R) system was established enabling SEAI to track progress towards the 2020 energy efficiency target of 33%. Energy usage data is supplied directly to the R&M system by the energy provider and additional information is input by selected users in each public-sector organisation.

Long description A yearly report of energy usage is compiled for each public body and a score card is automatically produced by the system which provides graphs and data suitable for publishing on websites or in Annual Reports. The public body’s progress on its target glidepath is mapped, as well as the performance being benchmarked against other public bodies. The report includes information about the baseline (2009), energy saving projects, energy types and a suitable activity metric is chosen by each organisation. An activity metric is a measure of the activity that the organisation undertakes. Common activity metric used include full time equivalent(FTE)staff or floor area. The energy usage data is then adjusted for factors such as weather, uses of energy eg heating etc.

The validity of submitted data is checked once the reports are selected for Data Verification Assessment (DVA). The level of checks can range from a public body providing substantiation for a specific piece of data submitted to more comprehensive assessments including on-site visits by qualified assessors. Annual results are published widely by SEAI. SEAI run annual training for users of the R&M system and have also established a user’s group to provide feedback on the system. Other complementary supports are provided by SEAI such as energy audits, grants, energy efficiency work groups (allowing exchange of best practice between and “Energy link” (an online community) to help users share information in relation to reducing fulfil their obligations.

Field:
Energy monitoringX Financial monitoring
Location counties in Ireland (Waterford, Wexford, Dublin, Kilkenny, Tipperary, & Carlow) and Wales (Anglesey, Gwynedd, Denbighshire, Flintshire, Conwy, Wrexham, Swansea, Carmarthenshire, & Powys)

Abstract or Summary The WIN-IPT was a 3-year project funded under the Ireland Wales Programme (2012 – 2014). It was an industry-informed initiative, designed to promote the development of innovation and enhance business opportunities for SMEs working in Photovoltaic (PV) technologies. The project provided direct R&D support to develop Self-powered wireless sensors for building management and control functions. The project was successful in developing a range of integrated sensor technologies that can be self-powered, communicate wirelessly and operate indefinitely without human intervention. The integrated systems can be built at an economical cost and provide a platform for the future Internet of Things revolution. Demonstration trials of new technologies at Local Authority sites were carried out to contribute to national goals of reducing CO2 emissions from buildings. Some of these devices are currently operating at a number of sites in Ireland Wales region monitoring air quality in public buildings. The possibility of the using the technology already developed by the WIN-IPT project (self-powered wireless sensors) has potential to be used (and modified if required?) for the purposes of energy monitoring in the EMPOWER Project.

Abstract or Summary Optimising Power @ Work is the OPW’s staff energy awareness campaign, which runs in all large Civil Service buildings and some Government agencies throughout Ireland. The initiative aims to change staff behaviour towards energy use and eliminating energy wastage within these buildings.

Long description One of the main factors for the success of Optimising Power @ Work is that every building has been fitted with equipment that automatically logs energy usage. The data is used to set targets and prepare energy reports on individual buildings. To date, average energy savings of over 18% have been achieved in the participating buildings.

Optimising Power @ Work provides a range of tools, activities and support structures, designed to bring together the very best in technology, innovation and creativity.

Optimising Power @ Work uses three key elements to support buildings and energy teams in reaching their energy reduction targets:
1.Technology
2.Specialist Expertise
3. Staff Engagement

Monitoring & Targeting
In order for a behavioural change campaign to be successful, it is necessary to provide the participants with reliable and up-to-date feedback on the results of their efforts. The use of dedicated Energy Monitoring Systems (EMS) has been central to delivering this feedback

Energy data loggers are installed, which collect data on electricity, gas, oil or LPGuse every 15 minutes. The data is stored in the OPW’s central energy data repository before specialist software is used to prepare customised energy reports for each building.
The building’s Energy Advisor analyses the data for energy saving opportunities and discusses the report and findings with the Energy Team at their regular meetings. The Energy Team can then use the information to target their actions and provide feedback on progress to management and the wider staff.

Specialist Expertise
An OP@W Energy Advisor is appointed to each building. The Energy Advisor assesses the historic energy performance of the facility and sets energy saving targets for the building. The performance of the building is measured against these targets, via the online EMS, and monthly progress reports. The Energy Advisor offers an insight into where energy savings may be achieved, through no or low-cost measures.

Staff Engagement
An active energy team is established in each building comprising key stakeholders from different business functions within the organisation. The OP@W Energy Advisor intensively engages with the energy team and staff in the building on a continuous basis to identify energy saving opportunities.

Other Supports - Energy Web Portal
A range of flexible resources and tools that can be tailored to assist with each building's progress towards energy reduction.
