Cork Institute of Technology

EnergyCAP SmartAnalytics™ (formerly Wattics) enabled CIT Cork to measure and verify the impact of changes in energy usage patterns, helping the institute to minimize electrical wastage and improve its teaching of green practices to future chefs.

The Background

Cork Institute of Technology (CIT) is an institute of technology with 17,000 students located in Cork, Ireland. The institute of technology wanted to teach future chefs green practices in the kitchen; however, this proved very difficult without visibility on kitchen energy use.

The Answer

EnergyCAP SmartAnalytics installed an energy management solution to two separate electrical distribution boards, which was used to monitor five handling air units and 15 major kitchen appliances in real-time.

EnergyCAP SmartAnalytics was used to monitor all air handling units minimizing the requirement for costly submetering.

EnergyCAP SmartAnalytics enabled CIT Cork to measure and verify the impact of changes in energy usage patterns, helping the institute to minimize electrical wastage and improve its teaching of green practices to future chefs.

The Results

  1. Air handling units correctly switched off at night. The customer had built-in push button controls.
  2. Energy breakdown and load contribution of kitchen appliances was determined. EnergyCAP SmartAnalytics provided time of use and individualized power consumption reports for use in lectures.
  3. Costly resistive appliances identified. EnergyCAP SmartAnalytics identified coffee machine, cup washer, and hot water boiler as major offenders, with significant savings achieved.
  4. Equipment failure and consumption anomalies were undetected. EnergyCAP SmartAnalytics provided a tool to get daily notifications and real-time alerts.

Other Benefits

  • Energy consumption comparison of multiple appliances or multiple building sites.
  • Identification of wastage and energy-saving opportunities through tailored reports, including the EnergyCAP SmartAnalytics WISE Report or “Wastage Identification Saving Energy” Report.
"The system has proven to be of great interest to all the students within the department. The data available allows the students to analyze energy costs and gives the student excellent application on how systems can be utilized for cost saving, energy measures, and sustainability. We highly recommend Wattics one-meter management solution as a teaching tool for any organization who wishes to increase and develop energy awareness and cost benefit analysis to students or to the wider industry."
