Data collection as a driver of the energy transition
Collecting energy data has become a major challenge in the race to save the planet.
As a driver of the ecological transition, data is an environmental and financial windfall for all sectors of activity: energy suppliers, property managers, social landlords, local authorities, operators, retailers, manufacturers, etc.
Insofar as energy data is crucial in monitoring the energy performance of organizations as well as in reducing greenhouse gas emissions, the N'Gage energy management solution provides an adapted response
What is energy data?
Energy data concerns the consumption of gas, electricity, petroleum products, as well as heating and cooling networks in a territory.
The collection of energy data facilitates a complete audit to measure the energy performance of an organization. Better knowledge of a company’s energy management allows for better control of its consumption.
In order to meet these challenges, Energisme ensures the collection and automatic analysis of multi-fluid data from all sources through the N’Gage solution.
Good to know:
At the building level, consumption and environmental data will play a major role in the energy management of buildings. The use of a building management system (BMS) and energy management systems helps optimize energy expenditures, improve the energy efficiency of a building stock and ensure the safety of occupants.
The LTECV and the ELAN
In fact, the LTECV and the ELAN law have developed a certain number of obligations that must be respected by local authorities and companies under the risk of penalties (Tertiary Decree, BACS Decree).
In addition, there are numerous standards (ISO 50001) and environmental labels (GRESB, GRI, EPRA).
In fact, organizations must complete several reports to justify their energy performance, based on a considerable amount of data.
Thus, energy data is essential for managing the energy consumption of organizations, not only to accelerate the energy transition, but also to consolidate it. By collecting and analyzing data in depth, companies and local authorities are able to control their energy consumption and manage their energy performance.
How does N'Gage collect your energy data?
The decisive step in data collection
N’Gage is a SaaS solution that connects to all your data sources to collect multi-fluid data (water, gas, electricity, hot fluid, cold fluid). The process is done automatically, representing a considerable time saving.
Thus, the recovery of energy data occurs at several levels:
Access to the databases of the network operators (Enedis, GRDF) to collect data on the energy consumption of the sites. Consumption history, power reached, power overruns, meter readings, contracts (options, subscribed powers), are all information that can be collected automatically.
Use of connected technologies such as smart meters and IoT (Internet of Things) sensors that allow you to import additional data to your existing flows.
Use of API’s (Application Programming Interface) that automatically link to many solutions to collect multi-source data. An intelligent energy management system is the best way to cross massive and heterogeneous data from several sources (connected meters, invoices, IoT sensors, remote management automata, CRM, ERP, etc.).
Modular communication automata for BMS thanks to the use of connectors compatible with all existing protocols (HTTPS, SFTP server, Backnet, MQTT, etc.).
Open Data to take into account influencing factors (weather data, building occupancy rate, etc.), but also for benchmarking work in order to compare your data with those of the market.
Outlier detection and replacement
The reliability of the data also requires cleaning. The detection and replacement of outliers, which can be caused by a measurement error or the occurrence of a specific event (breakdown, fire, etc.), are managed by the N’Gage platform.
The same applies to duplicate or missing data. The cross-referencing of data from multiple data sources :to fill in some missing information.
Analysis and management of the energy performance of buildings
After the collection of multi-site energy data, the platform provides the data in the form of interactive dashboards essential to energy performance. Supervision of energy and fluid consumption in buildings, detection of anomalies and consumption drifts, planning of maintenance actions, sharing of reliable data with design offices.
N’Gage is positioned as a real partner in the energy transition of companies, all sectors included.
