Automated alarms and intelligent algorithms provide Smart Data. The Unibat team immediately sees when the energy consumption of a building deviates from the norm. Thanks to our monitoring solution, the team is now able to consistently identify performance deficits and gradually optimise the building's energy balance. For example, non-system-relevant energy consumers such as ventilation and heating are automatically shut down at weekends and at night to prevent power fluctuations.
• Holistic real-time energy management for the entire campus of about 30 buildings
• Access to energy intensity maps and graphs from any device, anytime, anywhere (Smart Data)
• Combined energy management and maintenance tools
Thanks to this digital energy monitoring, the University of Lausanne has been able to implement initial measures. Heat consumption has fallen by 11% over the last four years.
Based on these positive results, the University of Lausanne has decided to extend our monitoring solutions to all buildings on the campus. Right now, the 16 most important of the total of 40 buildings are digitally monitored and analysed; together they represent around 90% of the total consumption on the campus. Electricity demand, the power supply from its own 5,400 m2 photovoltaic system, gas heating, lake water cooling and water supply are all integrated.
In order to obtain the "2000-watt site" label, the University of Lausanne must show by 2019 how it intends to achieve the objectives of the 2000-watt society over the next 20 years. Digital energy monitoring via cloud platform is an essential step along this demanding path.
