About

Energy Management System (EMS)

Visibility is the key to implementing sustainability initiatives in the built environment. What is not measured cannot be managed. Optergy provides the ability to visualize and report utility and meter data in real time. Displays can be created that provide an overview of utility performance with the ability to drill deeper for investigation purposes. This allows for fast fault diagnosis.

User specific reports for major buildings or individual meters can be automatically generated and emailed via CSV or PDF. Out of normal condition alarming provides instant notification when problems arise.

The mobile app for Android and IOS allows users to view reports, alarms and energy data from a single tenant, building or a portfolio of buildings in real time.

Features

Smart Metering

Metering can be used to provide energy costs, carbon usage information or general excess usage costs that can be used to manage operations.

Use the system to monitor building or tenant utility consumption or generation such as solar.

The Optergy metering system allows all utilities to be reported in a common format which can further be automated to provide regular reports for individual meters (tenant) or groups of meters (building).

The automatic meter reporting can be output in CSV, PDF or emailed.

Meter readings can be further utilized in the tenant billing system.

Meter Hierarchy Management

The meter hierarchy page loads a graphical tree list. It displays the parent/child relationships of all the meters currently in Optergy software. This will help the facility manager to easily understand and manage dedicated energy meters from anywhere in the building.

When the end user clicks on a meter, a drop down link menu will link the user to further information. It includes: meter breakdown report (only available for parent meters), meter configuration, and meter commissioning history.

Meter Alert

Optergy software allows users to configure alarms for meters alerts.

Users can be notified of new metering alarms in three ways:

  • Appear and be displayed in the Optergy software banner
  • Received as alarm emails with URL link to the meter in alarm
  • Notification via Email or SMS

Alarm conditions include:

Adjustable alarming conditions allows users to create context around the alarms being generated. For example; if a cooling tower top meter is installed, the user can define alarms that identify unusual water consumption outside of normal operating hours. This can identify if the typical ball valve and float water top up has failed open or closed.

Meter Display

Once a meter is set up in the Optergy software, a meter display page is automatically created based on the data available as defined by the meter type template. All data points on the meter display page are automatically logged so that engineering time is kept to a minimum during project delivery. Users can toggle the prebuilt report from day, week, month, year, consumption, demand or carbon emissions.

 

Example of Meter Display

Custom Displays

Single Line Diagram

Using Optergy’s built-in display tool, users can create custom display pages to represent the flow of utilities throughout a building. This could be in the form of a single line diagram or by load group. For example; electricity can be grouped into loads like – lighting, general power, lifts/elevators, HVAC, general fans. Water loads can be grouped into loads like – cooling towers, toilets potable or domestic hot water.

Example of potable water

End User Dashboard

Optergy has a built-in dashboard tool that users can create custom content for the purpose of viewing energy, operations, HTML content and weather data. Dashboards are created using widgets placed on to a display.

Dashboard page URL can be shared with other users of the system who have the appropriate privilege and are helpful for collaboration purposes.
