Major London Hospital: data analysis unlocks on-going energy savings
A major London teaching hospital found its vast, complex collection of energy data had become unmanageable.
This was preventing the hospital from spotting anomalies, comparing its buildings’ current performance with previous years, or finding opportunities for energy-saving at its site.
Concept Energy Solutions checked and ‘cleansed’ the data from all of the hospital’s sources (including less common data sources, such as steam, CHP export electricity, oil, etc.).
The process involved:
- Reviewing all the data, dating back to 2007
- Cross-referencing invoice meter data, meter readings and HH/AMR data
- Validating the figures to confirm the accuracy of the data
Concept Energy then put the data into a format that is simple for hospital staff to understand.
The new, workable format of the data was easily uploaded to the hospital’s M&T software. This allows for on-going energy monitoring, opening up huge potential for cutting out energy waste and pinpointing potential problems.
The data is also now fully configurable, so that the energy use in just one part of the hospital can be analysed individually. For example, the self-contained research organisations within the hospital are now able to measure their own energy use separately, which is important for re-charging purposes.
The hospital was thrilled at the quality of the service, with every part of the process carried out promptly.
