Monitoring, a legal constraint

As a retirement home, Chantevent has refrigerators and freezers to store food but also medication. they have a legal obligation to monitor and report temperature daily and therefore asked us to install a similar solution as (see business case: XAMAX FCS: Cinq Sens’). They wanted us to install something similar. Satisfied with this first installation, we decided to go one step further.

We can’t manage what we can’t monitor

What if instead of just monitoring a few units we could monitor the entire building? With a team of engineers, we analyzed the building and where savings could be made. We then designed a solution and the sensors that would monitor them. The first goal was to monitor the energy consumption and production and track the influence of various changes that were made. Secondly, by having an overview of various units, we could monitor the “hardware” and anticipate failure. For example, instead of complaining at 11 am that it is cold, you get an alarm at 6 am that the heater is down, and you should send a technician.

Anticipation and prediction

While those two first steps have had direct consequences, we now plan on using weather forecasting to anticipate the energy needed (and the location in case of wind) and start heating (or cooling) sooner to keep a constant temperature and therefore save energy.

It is a “Place of life”, a retirement home. Its vocation is to welcome people who are forced to leave their homes, temporarily or permanently, whatever their age, their life history, their difficulties, and their pathology.

The global building automation system market grew 7% in 2018 to total ~ US$ 35 Bn, registering an upward spiral from ~ US$ 33 Bn in
2017, according to the new research study from Future Market Insights.

The report says that Schneider Electric SE, ABB, Siemens AG, Johnson Controls Inc., and Honeywell International Inc. remain the top 5 players in the building automation market, commanding nearly 40% of the global market share.

The analyst is of the opinion that growing investments in smart buildings is one of the key shapers estimate to mould the growth of building automation system market in 2019 and beyond. Despite of having a robust sphere of influence, leading players in the building automation system market will continue to face competition threats from new vendors entering the scenario with newer promises.

The term ‘digital transformation’ has attracted a lot of attention across the manufacturing industry and throughout the media recently. Defined by The Enterprisers Project, digital transformation is “the integration of digital technology into all areas of a business, resulting in fundamental changes to how businesses operate and how they deliver value to customers.”

With digitalisation comes the rise of trends such as Industry 4.0, smart manufacturing and smart factories.

Industry 4.0, also known as the fourth industrial revolution, is all about focusing on connectivity and communication. It presents us with a future where devices are connected so that they can communicate and make smart decisions.

Technology has been increasingly adopted by all major industry sectors over the last several years—and the energy industry is no exception. Tech innovation is no longer associated only with replacement of paperwork with automated electronic systems. The next step is reinvention of the ways that energy and utilities companies do business, engage their customers and interact with them. And let us not forget about Energy 4.0, a buzzword used to denote the digital revolution in this industry.
