Clayton Hotel Cardiff Lane had a history of high consumption and unaccounted-for energy spikes, costing the hotel thousands of euros each month. They required a solution that would help them quickly identify and alert them to periods of excessive consumption, unplanned energy spikes, and other areas of operational waste to reduce kWh expenditure and energy costs and improve overall energy efficiency.
The hotel’s maintenance management department also found several energy inefficiencies, e.g., AC was left on in non-critical areas during off-peak times, and multiple fans were manually overridden to “on.”
Sub-metered areas and appliances such as air-conditioning units, fans, pumps, and electricity main (DB) were monitored by smart meters and connected to EnergyCAP SmartAnalytics™. Incoming data from monitored circuits was ready for analysis in minutes. With EnergyCAP SmartAnalytics, Clayton Hotel Cardiff Lane can:
