Energy Conservation

The costs of Energy are rising at a rapid rate; in the future, the very availability of reliable electric power may be called into question. The need of the hour is to conserve more energy.

Whether you already have an Energy Conservation Program in place, or actively considering starting it, CompuSharp has specialized services to offer.

CompuSharp's approach to Energy Conservation breaks down as follows:

Analysis of Energy Bills. Bills are analyzed on an on-going basis and recommendations are offered to take maximum advantage of the rate structures, discount programs, consolidation, etc., offered by Utilities. A data warehouse is created and patterns of unusual consumption are detected.
Energy Conservation Plan. Based on an in-depth review of business processes, loads are classified into Vital, Essential and Desirable categories. A comprehensive methodology is recommended for Energy Conservation.
Alternative Energy Source Implementation. This includes Passive heating and Solar Photovoltaic cells for Power generation. Based on a feasibility study, the siting and sizing is performed. Sources for rebates are identified and a cost-benefit and payback analysis is performed. The implementation is managed from procurement specification to installation.
Real-time monitoring and Control. Using Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) technology, the consumption is monitored in real-time by our centralized servers. This information is made available over secure Internet to the users. At any point, it is possible to determine the interruptible load, and the impact of rolling shutdowns. Controls can be effected to meet the load shedding requests from Utilities, resulting in further discounts on rates. Most importantly, cycling of air-conditioning systems is performed by remotely configured programs, which can result in tremendous savings in Energy Bills.

This process is managed with minimal investments by the users and has benefits on a continuing basis. Information is “key” to monitoring, and real-time monitoring results in real-time optimization and control.
