As electricity prices continue to rise and pressure mounts for businesses to decarbonise, it is vital for businesses to actively manage and optimise their energy profile to be as efficient as possible. This leads to reductions in CO2, as well as cost reductions which frees up capital to be reinvested into core business activities to improve the business as a whole.
Where to start?
Inefficiencies can be present in the electricity profile without detection, so the first step is to understand your business’ energy consumption and identify where improvements can be made. Initial identification can be easily achieved in a non-invasive manner by analysing a sites consumption and generation data which is easily accessible for sites with half hourly metering.
- Reduced electricity consumption and costs through Powerstar’s patented voltage optimisation technology
- Stabilised voltage profile to protect against voltage spikes and dips that can damage equipment and cause sensitive systems to trip
- Improved HV infrastructure with Powerstar SO-LO to optimise energy at source
- Reduced reliance on the grid for the supply of energy by supporting on-site generation with battery energy storage
Enhanced visibility and analysis through remote monitoring capabilities across multiple technologies enables proactive management of the energy profile and ongoing optimisations. Firstly, a tried and tested technology known for its ability to deliver efficiency savings is voltage optimisation. By optimising the voltage supplied to your business, you can minimise wasted electricity and reduce electricity costs.
The requirement for voltage optimisation technology comes from many buildings being supplied from the National Grid with electricity at a higher voltage level than needed for the electrical equipment on site resulting in wasted energy and leading to increased levels of carbon emissions and unnecessarily high electricity bills. The excessive level of voltage also puts additional strain on that equipment, causing increased wear and tear to on-site electrical equipment, meaning it will burnout and need to be replaced quicker.
Another option, for those that operate and own their onsite high voltage transformers, is the replacement of ageing transformers with modernised amorphous core transformers. Such transformers utilise an amorphous alloy core as opposed to the traditionally used cold rolled grain-oriented silicon steel material. This allows for quicker magnetisation and demagnetisation to take place due to the flexibility of the amorphous core, which leads to higher efficiencies being provided than in traditional transformers.
The benefits of optimising your use of energy
Being more intelligent and informed about your businesses use of energy can result insignificant benefits, including:
