The Operations Analyser enables energy analysts to understand usage and wastage of resources (energy, water, gas, etc). There, it is possible to simulate turning off devices for a period of time in the day or replacing machines, lights or appliances for more efficient ones in a quick way.
Where to find it in the dashboard?
Once you have logged into your dashboard you can click on the dotted icon.
This will open the page which will allow you to select data points and apply schedules.
How to use it?
Once the operations analyser page has opened, you will be able to select the data points associated with his account, create a schedule and navigate through the different periods of time.
Then it is possible to select a data point or a site (level 2) for which a schedule and can be created. If a data point is selected, the Operations Analyser will show the possible savings for the specific point. If a site (level 2) is selected, the schedule will be applied to all the data points under that site and a ranking of them will be presented. This is to allow the analyst to focus its efforts where the possible saving could be best.
An example of a schedule for the meter is below:
In this schedule, we have simulated a turn off of the meter completely between 18:00pm and 8:00am. This will then show the savings opportunities if this was in place. It is also possible to reduce the consumption/usage by a percentage, which could mean a replacement of the appliance or its usage optimization.
The same concept applies for the schedule for the site (level 2), but the final result will be the ranking for the meters directly below it. Here is an example:
Finally, it is possible to apply schedules for meters at level 3 and instead of clicking “Save schedule”, you should instead “Save schedule for meters under this site” or “Save schedule for meters under this meter”.
What are the main benefits?
The operations analyser main benefit is that it allows quick feedback based on real consumption data and obtained from the schedule change. Once it is saved, it is possible to understand how much could have been saved in terms of resources and costs. This feedback can then be used to discuss savings possibilities and investments for the future.
