Sub-metering is the installation of meters in addition to existing primary billing meters.
This allows you to be able to measure and record the utility usage for individual areas within your building. These meters can then be read either directly or via the internet using the BGES AM&T software package.
If you have a large space that is supplied through one meter it can be difficult to understand which applications/areas are using the most energy.
For example, in a warehouse where heating/cooling and lighting are all major users, it would be difficult to separate how much energy each of these functions consume and when, which can make effective energy management very challenging, especially if you don’t know what is being used and where, as it is difficult to analyse and reduce consumption accurately.
Benefits of implementing the BGES sub-metering solution
Monitoring exactly when and where your energy is consumed can enable you to identify where simple savings can be made on your operating costs.
It can also help to highlight problem areas such as unusual patterns in energy consumption or excessively high consumption plant.
