Transcript of "Pulse Energy Measurement And Verification Webinar Slides"

  1. 1. Does your building have a pulse?<br />Measurement & Verification Webinar<br />March 3rd, 2010<br />
  2. 2. Agenda<br />Graham Henderson <br />BC Hydro’s Continuous Optimization Program<br />David Helliwell<br />Lessons Learned, M&V Challenges<br />Q&A<br />M&V with Pulse energy management software<br />
  3. 3. Continuous Optimization Program Overview<br />Graham Henderson<br />Program Manager<br />Continuous Optimization Program<br />BC Hydro<br />
  4. 4. Description<br />The Continuous Optimization program targets operational savings in the commercial sector<br />The program consists of two primary components<br />Retro-commissioning<br />Energy Management Information System<br />
  5. 5. Description (Continued)<br />Positioned as a commercial sector “Monitoring Targeting & Reporting” program.<br />Program offer:<br />Fully funded retro-commissioning study<br />Fully funded EMIS<br />Customer implements bundle of measures up to 2 year simple payback<br />
  6. 6. Energy Management Information System<br />Most important aspects of an EMIS:<br />Measurement & verification<br />Exception reporting<br />Customer response to date to program offer<br />
  7. 7. Pulse Energy’s Role<br />David Helliwell<br />Co-Founder & CEO<br />Pulse Energy<br />
  8. 8. Lessons Learned from BC Hydro Continuous Optimization Program<br /><ul><li>Most buildings are in need of commissioning
  9. 9. Energy consulting and retrofits are important, but usually slow and expensive
  10. 10. Focus on energy information & analysis enables quick action with measurable results</li></li></ul><li>Lessons Learned from BC Hydro Continuous Optimization Program (Cont’d)<br /><ul><li>Energy managers are key program leaders – often facilities managers are focused on other priorities
  11. 11. Customers appreciate a turnkey solution that provides advanced energy use information
  12. 12. Utility programs must have resources in place to walk customers through the initial gap analysis and program implementation
  13. 13. Starting quickly with small simple steps is important</li></li></ul><li>Challenges and Opportunities in M&V Today<br /><ul><li>General lack of sufficient measurements of green retrofits
  14. 14. Building owners who don’t have systems in place to effectively measure performance will lag the market and incur additional costs
  15. 15. Lack of trained energy efficiency engineers is a constraint to the pace of commissioning programs
  16. 16. http://articles.sfgate.com/2009-09-06/news/17205850_1_buildings-efficiency-new-jobs</li></ul>Sources: Green Building Retrofit & Renovation, McGraw Hill Construction; Pulse Energy research<br />
  17. 17. Challenges and Opportunities in M&V Today<br /><ul><li>Manual calculations make it difficult to do an “apples to apples” comparison of baseline and performance periods
  18. 18. Off-the-shelf software technologies offer big improvements in operational efficiency for a minimal investment</li></ul>Sources: Green Building Retrofit & Renovation, McGraw Hill Construction; Pulse Energy research<br />
  19. 19. Identifying a 15kW Reduction<br />May 14 – Measure implemented<br />Baseline baseload<br />Performance baseload<br />
  20. 20. Pulse Energy EMS Enables Continuous M&V<br /><ul><li>Pulse Energy enables BC Hydro and other customers to conduct continuous M&V:
  21. 21. Intelligent M&V driven by a normalized baseline
  22. 22. Exception reporting ensures optimal operations
  23. 23. Ensure persistence of savings</li></li></ul><li>Pulse Energy EMS Enables Continuous M&V<br /><ul><li>Ability to use historical data to build a baseline</li></li></ul><li>Q&A<br />
