Optimised energy management in public buildings requires acquisition of information about the consumption of water, electricity and heat resources at the shortest possible intervals through energy monitoring. With this in mind, the Aachen urban region in Germany (StädteRegion Aachen) has followed an example set by the city of Aachen. With the city of Apache’s owner-operated municipal enterprise for building management and the IT service provider, regio iT GmbH monitoring system has been implemented to establish enhanced energy monitoring. This technology is based on an integrated data logger solution.

 

Take note

  • Energy management in buildings requires information about the consumption of water, electricity and heat at very short intervals.
  • Short measuring intervals can be achieved through automated data transmission and data preparation.
  • Energy data stored in the Cloud can be analysed conveniently with the energy monitoring system described in the article.
