Installing energy metering as part of the building management facilities allows for maximum demand controls, energy cost auditing for departments or building zones, and the implementation of energy usage targets. Through the connection of data loggers to the buildings electrical systems, Lawler Consulting can measure the current which runs through the equipment.
When the data loggers are collected, we can then review the data and see all peaks and troughs in the building’s load. Many businesses use this as a stepping stone to carrying out a complete Energy Audit because once they see where their energy bills come from and the possible savings opportunities, they are eager to do something about it.
We help clients set realistic energy usage targets and recommend ways to improve energy performance. Energy targets are identified by compiling data drawn from analytical tools, building computer models and Energy Audits. Throughout our years of building analysis and energy audits, we have established benchmarks in all areas and building types.
When we initially meet our client, we talk through these benchmarks with the client to compare an energy-efficient building and one that is not so. It is through these meetings with clients that we explain the small differences in the buildings and the opportunities that we see in their building! We pride ourselves in setting realist annual targets – not pulling extravagant numbers from thin air. We will always show you our figures and methodology too, and even give you a full report on the topic.
Lawler Consulting understands that energy and target road mapping is a clear and concise way of detailing year on year targets and as a result, we provide this service to some of the biggest retail and leisure names.
