New Energy Efficiency Offer From Chauvin Arnoux

New Energy Efficiency Offer From Chauvin Arnoux

Chauvin Arnoux have announced the launch of their EEBS Energy Efficiency Business Solution - containing everything you need in one box to make your facility more energy efficient or expand your business to offer the service to others.

The EEBS list price is £2,429 ex-VAT - a massive 23% discount on the price of the products if bought individually. The kit includes the Chauvin PEL103 (£1,469) power and energy logger, Power Adaptor (£131), Diacam2 CA1950 (£1,100) thermal imager, and DataView Software (£450).

With small businesses using 46% of total electricity between 6pm and 8am, the EEBS contains a portable power and energy logger that will show exactly how much power is being used, where, by what, and at what times.

Additionally, 20% of a business' annual energy costs are wasted through the use of energy inefficient equipment, which the logger also easily identifies both in terms of the amount of power being used, and any power factor issues that would cause unnecessary high billing.

The included Thermal Imaging Camera will show heat energy losses within the fabric of the buildings, as well as enabling flue temperature measurements, and the scanning of pipe lagging, etc. Heat loss due to poor or missing pipe insulation may reduce the overall efficiency from source to end by up to 50%, with an additional 10 to 20% in flue losses.

Apart from reducing energy consumption, the EEBS enables the monitoring of equipment for both power consumption and temperature to give early failure indication, potentially saving significant costs in downtime and maintenance.

BACKGROUND

According to the Carbon Trust up to 20% of a business’s energy costs are due to wasted energy. For businesses, this represents a significant etl logoamount of money that can be saved by identifying the issues and resolving them.

They should want to do it to make the savings and at the same time “improve their green credentials” which is great for publicity. They stand to save a lot more than the price of the EEBS.

Large businesses need to comply with the statutory regulation “The Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS)” View Scheme document here. A business must take part in the Scheme if they qualified as a “large undertaking” on the qualification date, which was 31 December 2014.

A large undertaking is any UK undertaking that meets either one or both of the conditions below:

  1. It employs 250 or more people.
  2. It has an annual turnover in excess of £39m and an annual balance sheet total in excess of £33.5m.
  3. If your undertaking is part of a corporate group which includes another UK undertaking that meets either of these conditions.

Compliance was required by 5 December 2015. This was then extended to 30 June 2016. According to the Carbon Trust there are a few thousand companies that haven’t complied and the potentially face “being slapped with tens of thousands of pounds of potential fines, alongside reputational risks in situations where they are obliged to disclose environmental enforcement notices.”

What do I get with the Chauvin Energy Efficiency Business Solution?

“The Chauvin Arnoux Energy Efficiency Business Solution contains everything you need in one box to make your facility more energy efficient or expand your contracting business to offer the service to others”.

Most losses occur because of:

- inefficient electrical equipment.
- unscheduled / out of hours' energy use.
- thermal (heat) leakage.

It has a power and energy logger to monitor electrical usage over time anywhere in the facility, enabling the customer to see how much power is being used, where, by what, and at what times. Often, facilities or offices can have all sorts of equipment powered up out of hours and costing them money (computers, water heaters, space heaters, etc).

The logger also identifies inefficient equipment both in terms of the amount power it is using, and also any power factor issues that would cause unnecessary high billing on large inductive loads (motors, etc).

Additionally, it identifies harmonics that could cause operational issues in a facility, and result in power loss and heating in power supply equipment, such as supply transformers.

The kit also contains a thermal imaging camera to identify thermal (heat) losses within the installation buildings and associated HVAC systems. The thermal camera will also show overheating equipment, which apart from risk of failure or maybe even fire, must be consuming excessive energy by virtue of the fact that it is generating excess heat.
