By implementing cost-effective energy-efficiency measures, many colleges and universities have the potential to reduce their energy bills by 30% or more

Efficient facility management while minimizing energy consumption (with BEMS)

Universities present a unique set of challenges to building owners and facility management teams with a diverse range of building types, age of the building, and usage. From lecture theatres, laboratories, IT server rooms, leisure facilities, accommodation, dining facilities, and administration offices each with their own HVAC, lighting, and security requirements with varying maintenance needs. Accommodating the thermal comfort and safety of thousands of students across a diverse multi-site campus, smart energy management can be challenging.

 

Developing and expanding over time, many campuses are a combination of new, aging, and historic buildings added to this is the proliferation of varying HVAC and lighting systems, with a blend of modern, outdated, or non-existent BMS systems. For facility management teams, managing many disparate systems is time-consuming, operationally inefficient, and potentially costly in terms of energy consumption and equipment maintenance.

The Cylon solution provides for ease of upgrades and the extension of BEMS through the gradual replacement of older, outdated, and ineffective BEMS systems delivering a more flexible, energy-efficient, and cost-effective solution. 

 

Occupancy and setpoint values for classrooms, conference rooms, gymnasiums, etc. can be adjusted remotely with everyday software like Microsoft Outlook or with mobile devices in the hands of facility managers.

 

Ensure your building systems are operational only when needed versus expectation with HVAC and lighting scheduling and the application of intelligent sensor feedback.

Improve operations with Central Management

If a lecture is cancelled who turns the lights off and adjusts the HVAC in a room? Are rooms fully occupied to expected schedules? In the first instance, BEMS should be scheduled in line with building occupancy and reviewed on a quarterly or semester basis to capture fluctuations in expected occupancy. The addition of occupancy sensors can ensure lighting is not left on unnecessarily and HVAC is not running needlessly in empty rooms.

Sensors enrich the efficacy of BEMS and improve environmental factors | BEMS connected sensors such as light, temperature, CO2, humidity, occupancy data work together to provide a consistent and comfortable learning environment for students.

By integrating the Cylon web-enabled Building Automation system, HVAC equipment can easily be adjusted according to weather conditions. Occupancy and setpoint values for classrooms, conference rooms, gymnasiums, etc. can be adjusted remotely with everyday software like Microsoft Outlook or with mobile devices in the hands of facility managers.

View and modify information including trends, setpoints, schedules, and more from any web-enabled device. Site dashboards are easily user-customizable, allowing equipment, schedules, trends, and more to be added as favourites for quick access.

Energy Monitoring, Analysis and Optimization | Active Energy Manager

Reducing energy use and making real savings is impossible without good data on which to make management and investment decisions.

Active Energy Manager shows you how, where and when you are consuming energy

Active Energy Manager

 

Cylon Active Energy Manager issues alarms via email and push notification services when it detects anomalies in expected consumption, putting you in control.

 

 

 

Extensible

There are no limits to the number of information points or geographical locations that can be connected to the system which makes it an ideal central energy monitoring and management tool for multisite and multi-building organizations.

Despite energy-saving initiatives, HVAC and lighting still represent 40% and 16% respectively of the total energy consumption in educational buildings.
