Realizing the Value of Real-time Energy Monitoring & Capital Planning
Session Room 205 B | 3:00pm-3:50pm
Understanding what drives our energy impacts and costs at the asset level through circuit level real-time monitoring is allowing us to take a more targeted approach to hitting our 2030 carbon reduction targets. When taken a step further we can inform capital planning w data driven decisions. This session will review projects where real-time monitoring was used to identify everything from operational improvements to capital projects. Not only can we combine energy opportunities at the asset level but we can incorporate total cost of ownership including work orders, labour and maintenance. We will review lessons learned and project successes from scoping each site and documenting the monitoring needs to system installation and integration to capital planning and occupant engagement.
