Energy Management

Use IoT to understand and minimise your Energy Usage

With energy costs increasing and organisations under pressure to improve efficiency and demonstrate their green credentials, now is a good time to look at the way you manage your energy usage. New technologies under the 'Internet of Things', or IoT umbrella can play a vital role in helping you understand and minimise your energy usage.

First, some jargon busting. 'IoT' is simply a network of Internet-connected objects able to collect and exchange data. The objects include various sensors and controls that can be embedded in other systems and equipment to give you greater visibility and control.

With a string of strategic acquisitions in this area around data analytics and Fog computing, Cisco Systems are positioning themselves to be a leading player in the IoT space. Cisco already has the industry’s most reliable, scalable, high-performance portfolio of IoT networking solutions, including ruggedised routing, switching and wireless products, plus software-only solutions that can be integrated with third-party devices. Options for connecting ‘Things’ now including wired (Ethernet), indoor/outdoor WiFi (802.11, Bluetooth LE), and routed via 3G/4G/LPWAN networks.

As a Cisco Premier Partner we're well placed to help you explore these new technologies, and we've also partnered with other companies who make sensors and controls so that we can offer an end-to-end solution.

So how does that help me reduce my energy costs? Well you're probably investing in Cisco network technologies anyway to solve other business challenges around connectivity and mobile computing, so why not leverage the same infrastructure to tackle energy management? Low-cost battery-powered temperature/humidity sensors can be placed around your site. These sensors use your Cisco wi-fi infrastructure to feed data to a cloud-based 'collector' for analysis. The next stage is to create trigger points when sensor readings exceed pre-defined limits, which can be used to control your HVAC system in real-time. It's basically what you're doing now, but with much greater granularity, the ability to analyse your site's energy usage over time, and to make ongoing micro-adjustments to ensure that your HVAC system is working at maximum efficiency.

In the Warehousing & Logistics sector accurate temperature and humidity control are essential to maximising shelf-life and maintaining supply-chain integrity, and this is an area where Oxspring have a great deal of experience, gained working with some of the UK's leading logistics companies.
