Singapore commits to achieving net zero emissions by 2050 as part of the nation’s Long-Term Low-Emissions Development Strategy. This target is dependent on many factors including industry’s ability to collect energy consumption data effectively on activities that generate greenhouse gas emissions.
Developed by a local research team, this solution provides a cost-effective way to collect consumption data on two key contributors to carbon footprint, electricity and water. Long-range (500m) plug-and-play wireless sensors integrated with a customized dashboard provide users with an intelligent and accurate overview of their utility consumption in their facility. Coupled with an analytics engine running in the background, usage patterns can be established, optimized and contingency alerts provided where required.
The solution caters well to facilities with legacy systems by allowing consumption data to be collected without the need for extensive system changes. The system is fully customizable and configurable based on user requirements. The technology owner is looking for partners and collaborators to further co-develop and trial this technology.
Compared to existing systems in the market which typically cater to either power or energy monitoring, this solution offers the additional integration of water monitoring as well as additional control features to trigger intervention steps should there be anomalies such as piping leaks.
The system allows direct insight to the correlation between what is used to carbon footprint. Data is collected to help users understand the greatest generators of carbon footprint, so that users are more aware, and can consider ways to reduce their carbon equivalent emissions.
