At the end of last year Rohan Rawte, our Head of Asia, took part in a roundtable discussion at the Singapore International Energy Week (SIEW) 2016 to discuss the prospect of smart multi energy systems. The discussion centred around the potential of these systems to transform big data generated through renewable energy, hybrid AC/DC microgrids, building energy systems, energy storage, sensors and communications, as well as data analytics, into smart data.
Rohan brought to the table his expert knowledge on the technology that can help building owners measure and verify energy consumption in real time. He explained how this technology can enable building owners to act accordingly, and the great thing is it is already here and available from IES. By integrating operational building data (e.g. door entry systems, lightning management, environment sensors, smart meters, etc.) with a 3D performance model, an integrated building performance analysis can be conducted to inform the reduction of energy consumption.
Rohan talked about REEMAIN (resource and energy efficient manufacturing), an ongoing European funded IES R&D project, as an example of how technologies are accelerating progress towards zero-carbon production. The REEMAIN project will reduce the energy consumption of factory buildings through the integration of renewable energy technologies and resource saving strategies.
