Health Care Metering

The increasing costs of energy impacts health care facilities whether they are large hospitals or small medical offices. DOE's analysis of energy use in the health care sector, in which $5.3 billion is spent every year is second only to the food service industry in terms of consumption.

Because of their unique energy requirements these types of facilities face a growing challenge in managing and controlling their energy use and demand without negatively impacting the quality and cost of their services.

As a tool for measuring and verifying the facility's energy footprint, submetering hardware and software are an easily installed, readily available Rx for that old energy adage that says, "You can't save what you don't measure."

Following are examples of how submeters are used in the health care environment:
  • Analysis, measurement, verification and benchmarking of peak demand (kW) and consumption (kWh) for compliance with energy initiatives
  • Time-of-use metering of electricity, gas, water, steam BTUs and other energy sources
  • Load comparisons and usage monitoring
  • Cost allocation of actual usage to specific users, tenants and departments.

Entertainment Venues

Sporting events, concerts, festivals, trade shows and seminars all require large amounts of energy.

Facility managers at entertainment venues rely on E-Mon submetering solutions to accurately monitor and report actual usage during these vents. Metering points can include parking lot and stadium lighting, sound systems, vendors, concessionaires among other high-use energy users.

Armed with accurate and reliable data in the form of energy statements and graphical charts the facility managers are now able to account for usage and allocate costs back to the event sponsors.

In addition to the facility recovering all costs related to the events, the sponsors know that they are only paying for the energy actually consumed.

Airport Submetering

Flight 694 arrives at gate 14....

Electricity flows from the terminal to the aircraft...

How can the airline be billed accurately for their electrical usage?

With only one meter for an entire airport there is no way to discern when, where and how energy is used, and who is accountable for it.

E-Mon meters have been monitoring airport energy users for over 25 years including:
  • Airline ticket counters
  • Restaurants
  • Newsstands
  • Kiosks
  • Car Rental Agencies
  • Airline Gates
  • Jetways
  • Security Areas
  • Common areas throughout the airport such as parking lot lighting, run way lights, moving walkways and HVAC.
