Published on

In case of a new logistics center it is necessary to plan the energy management system carefully at the design stage of the building and select the suitable electrical equipments to be applied (e.g.: energy efficient illuminators). In addition, the possibility of using renewable energy sources is also should be examined (e.g.: solar energy etc.) Comparing these practices to the traditional ones expenses can be reduced by 60-80%.

Application of energy management solutions in logistics centers

  1. 1. Energy Management Solutions Version v1.0Application of Energy Efficient and Energy Saving Solutionsin Logistics CentersNowadays, it is getting more and moreessential to apply energy managementsystems and energy efficient solutions inlogistics centers which may well lead to asignificant, 40-50% energy use reduction.In such buildings electricity makes up 60-80% of all energy consumption, themajority of which is used for lighting. Theremaining per cent goes for heating andair-conditioning.In case of a new logistics center it isnecessary to plan the energymanagement system carefully at thedesign stage of the building and select thesuitable electrical equipments to beapplied (e.g.: energy efficient illuminators). In addition, the possibility of using renewable energysources is also should be examined (e.g.: solar energy etc.) Comparing these practices to thetraditional ones expenses can be reduced by 60-80%.In the case of already existing logistics buildings, depending on investment budget, it isreasonable to modernize lighting equipment and build the connecting automation system. It is alsonecessary to install the energy management system with which energy consumption can be kepttrack of and parameterization of controlling functions can be made.www.konsys-international.com 1
  2. 2. Energy Management Solutions Version v1.0If these investments are done in more stages, the first step should be the installation of the energymanagement system that leads to 10% energy save on the average (the system detectsinefficiently operating fields and optimizes operation).The second step should be the implementation of lighting control with which an additional 20%energy saving can be realized (motion sensor control, light sensor control, work schedule basedcontrol etc.) together with the optimization of used energy for heating and air-conditioning(maintain optimal temperature in the building). The usual payback period of such investments isbetween 0,5 and 3 years. Nevertheless, changing the lighting equipments in already existingbuildings is very expensive and in many cases cannot be executed without modifying the powersupply (changing electrical distribution). It would significantly increase the payback period of theinvestment, so it is advised to examine the possibilities at the very beginning of a new investment.Due to continuous monitoring the energy management software not only ensures increase inefficient energy usage but guarantees secure power supply and cost-effective buildingmaintenance.Overview of applicable energy management solutions in logistics buildings: - Avoid subscribed power- overruns by automatic load-shedding (in case of electricity and gas) - Implementation of lighting control - Consumption monitoring and subscribed power optimization - Cost-allocation and sub-billing - Change-over automatic - Heating control - Solutions for energy efficiency improvements (renewable energy sources, application of variable frequency drivers etc.)www.konsys-international.com 2
