Transcript

  • 1. Does your building have a pulse?
    Measurement & Verification Webinar
    March 3rd, 2010
  • 2. Agenda
    Graham Henderson
    BC Hydro’s Continuous Optimization Program
    David Helliwell
    Lessons Learned, M&V Challenges
    Q&A
    M&V with Pulse energy management software
  • 3. Continuous Optimization Program Overview
    Graham Henderson
    Program Manager
    Continuous Optimization Program
    BC Hydro
  • 4. Description
    The Continuous Optimization program targets operational savings in the commercial sector
    The program consists of two primary components
    Retro-commissioning
    Energy Management Information System
  • 5. Description (Continued)
    Positioned as a commercial sector “Monitoring Targeting & Reporting” program.
    Program offer:
    Fully funded retro-commissioning study
    Fully funded EMIS
    Customer implements bundle of measures up to 2 year simple payback
  • 6. Energy Management Information System
    Most important aspects of an EMIS:
    Measurement & verification
    Exception reporting
    Customer response to date to program offer
  • 7. Pulse Energy’s Role
    David Helliwell
    Co-Founder & CEO
    Pulse Energy
  • 8. Lessons Learned from BC Hydro Continuous Optimization Program
    • Most buildings are in need of commissioning
    • 9. Energy consulting and retrofits are important, but usually slow and expensive
    • 10. Focus on energy information & analysis enables quick action with measurable results
  • Lessons Learned from BC Hydro Continuous Optimization Program (Cont’d)
    • Energy managers are key program leaders – often facilities managers are focused on other priorities
    • 11. Customers appreciate a turnkey solution that provides advanced energy use information
    • 12. Utility programs must have resources in place to walk customers through the initial gap analysis and program implementation
    • 13. Starting quickly with small simple steps is important
  • Challenges and Opportunities in M&V Today
    • General lack of sufficient measurements of green retrofits
    • 14. Building owners who don’t have systems in place to effectively measure performance will lag the market and incur additional costs
    • 15. Lack of trained energy efficiency engineers is a constraint to the pace of commissioning programs

  • 17. Challenges and Opportunities in M&V Today
    • Manual calculations make it difficult to do an “apples to apples” comparison of baseline and performance periods
    • 18. Off-the-shelf software technologies offer big improvements in operational efficiency for a minimal investment

  • 19. Identifying a 15kW Reduction
    May 14 – Measure implemented
    Baseline baseload
    Performance baseload
  • 20. Pulse Energy EMS Enables Continuous M&V
    • Pulse Energy enables BC Hydro and other customers to conduct continuous M&V:
    • 21. Intelligent M&V driven by a normalized baseline
    • 22. Exception reporting ensures optimal operations
    • 23. Ensure persistence of savings
  • Pulse Energy EMS Enables Continuous M&V
    • Ability to use historical data to build a baseline
  • Q&A
