LATEST MARKET UPDATE: Gas and Power prices are largely trading at parity with last week’s levels, despite some significant price swings at the front of the pricing curve. The bout of low pressure has seen reduced wind output, increasing demand for gas-fired power generation and stretching a European gas system which is struggling to attract global LNG. Winter prices have also been volatile with concerns over gas storage levels being partially offset by positive supply news surrounding the potential completion of the Nordstream 2 gas pipeline. Prices further out have been softer, as renewed coronavirus fears in the wake of the delta variant have weigh on global oil markets.

Panoramic Power™

Energy management has never been more important, with every business looking to optimise their energy strategy to reduce costs and carbon emissions.

Centrica Business Solutions Panoramic Power™ and PowerRadar™ give businesses greater visibility and intelligence on their energy consumption profile.

Watch this video to find out how implementing Panoramic Power™ and PowerRadar™ across your site can give you real-time, granular energy data on specific equipment. Allowing you to improve business performance through the development of a robust energy strategy that is based upon detailed Energy Insights.

How using Panoramic Power™ can deliver tangible benefits for your business:

  • Understand your energy footprint – Gain a comprehensive understanding of your energy consumption in real-time with device-level monitoring.
  • Lower your electricity costs – Make strategic decisions through the identification of inefficiencies and energy waste.
  • Track performance – Monitor the performance of your on-site assets and view energy generation, consumption, carbon emissions and cost savings in real-time.
  • Integrate 3rd party utility meters – Incorporate gas, heat, water and airflow for a complete view of your energy.
  • Alert system – Reduce the risk of equipment failure and downtime through the proactive management of your energy and assets via the sophisticated alert system.
  • Data-driven decisions - Make decisions on investments and the potential ROI with more certainty by using real energy data.
  • Greater access to your data - View your energy data and on-site performance from anywhere in the world, 24/7.
  • Strict security and privacy standards - Keep your network and critical assets safe.

How does the technology work?

Watch this video to learn how Panoramic PowerTM can help you unlock valuable, real-time energy data at a granular level.

How Energy Insight works: step 1

Data collection

Panoramic Power™ is a self-powered and non-intrusive wireless solution. Through the mapping and implementation of the sensors, you collect real-time energy data and analytics at a granular level from your on-site equipment.

How Energy Insight works: step 2

Data monitoring

The sensors continuously collect data and deliver it in real-time to the energy management platform PowerRadar™, to allow the performance monitoring of on-site assets. The system uses Amazon Web Services  (AWS) and adheres to strict security and privacy standards.

How Energy Insight works: step 3

Analysis and action

PowerRadar™ is an intuitive platform where you can analyse your energy consumption. it is cloud-based, meaning you can view it anywhere in the world. The intelligence gained from using PowerRadar™ helps to develop Energy Insights that can drive your energy strategy.

The Energy Insights solution has provided valuable equipment level information across a broad range of our sites, allowing us to implement energy reduction and process optimisation improvements.

CEMEX - Savings on an industrial scale

The deployment of over 1,600 sensors across 42 sites in the UK allowed CEMEX to develop a deeper understanding of their energy usage profile. It has also provided valuable insights that enabled proactive steps to be taken to stop plant machinery overloading and becoming inefficient. Using Centrica's Panoramic Power™ allowed CEMEX to:

  • Quickly identify faulty equipment through the detailed analysis of energy data, resulting in operational and cost savings.
  • Rapidly install the solution across 42 sites. without any disruption to the plant operations.
  • Extend the life of important assets through the use of predictive maintenance alerts.

Educating Schools on energy management

Schools by nature have a very varied energy usage across a year, this makes it hard to identify how to save energy and cost. Installing Panoramic PowerTM for a two month period enabled the collection of data on specific equipment and the school to detect problems and potential failures before they occurred. With the combination of Panoramic PowerTM and PowerRadarTM the school were able to:

  • Identify over 250,00kWh of energy savings per annum
  • Develop plans to reduce their energy bills by £17,600 per annum

Tailoring energy efficiency for a fashion brand

With over 400 stores across 50 countries, this fashion brand was looking for ways to reduce its carbon footprint and deliver on its sustainability pledge. A trial of Panoramic PowerTM across a series of its stores and warehouses provided valuable insights on energy saving opportunities. Using the data collected via Panoramic PowerTM the fashion brand was about to:

  • Identify a 15% reduction in energy use across the portfolio of sites used in the trial.
  • Act on opportunities spotted through the trial to reduce energy use at one warehouse by 9%.
  • Take the Energy Insights and identify a projected annual saving of £910,000 across just 60 stores.
