Energy Monitoring and Insights

Introduction to Energy Monitoring & Insights

At Bord Gáis Energy, we’ve imagined better ways for your business to take control of your energy costs.

Our energy insights solution is a better way to easily control and measure your business’ energy usage from the palm of your hand.

What is Energy Insight?

Energy Insight is an innovative wireless energy monitoring solution that gives your energy-using devices the ability to talk and tell you how much energy they’re using and when, how efficiently they’re operating, and even to alert you when something is about to go wrong.

Energy Insight is a network of self-powered sensors which are attached to energy-using devices in a business. They communicate with a cloud-based analytics platform, PowerRadar, to deliver powerful insights into energy usage allowing customers to manage and reduce where possible energy consumption throughout their business.

From manufacturing and production facilities to a small supermarket or office, every size and shape of business stands to gain from Energy Insight. Your business can benefit from Energy Insight by:

Gain a comprehensive understanding of your business’ energy usage with real-time, device-level monitoring.

Lowering your electricity costs by taking action when inefficiencies and energy waste are identified.

Maximising operational efficiencies and spend by benchmarking and managing energy consumption.

Reducing risk of equipment failure and costly downtime with predictive analytics and sophisticated alerts.

 Customers will typically start to realise energy reduction and cost benefits within one or two billing cycles. However, benefits are often immediate as the system can alert users to energy being used at unusual times such as lights being left on in an empty office building.

What does installation involve?

Installation is very simple. Bord Gáis Energy deliver a tailored Energy Insight solution in four easy steps, with minimal disruption to your business operations.

A member of our Business team will organise a suitable time to conduct a short assessment of your site(s). We will then tailor their Energy Insight solution to your business’ specific needs and energy strategy and help you define the solution that is best for your business.

Once you are happy to go ahead, Bord Gáis Energy will project-manage your entire installation for you. We will install the non-invasive wireless sensors to the power lines going into the devices you want to monitor as quickly and easily with minimal disruption to your operations. Once in place they draw their power from the cable they are clamped to, meaning they are very low maintenance with no batteries to replace, and the sensors connect to a bridge which uploads the data to the PowerRadar platform.

Bord Gáis Energy will activate PowerRadar, which will sit at the heart of your energy strategy. This is a cloud-based, secure software which provides you with the ability to view and manage your energy from anywhere whilst ensuring that your data is secure. We will help you create your account and ensure key performance indicators are in place.

Using PowerRadar, you can visualise all of your energy data in a single view. You can create real-time alerts, view analytics and schedule reports to completely understand your energy consumption. You can use this to manage your energy better and define your savings and efficiency strategies.
