Hosted Energy Profiling Services
iHEPS uses the unique iSCADA technology platform developed by Devices World to deliver real-time energy consumption information. iHEPS aims to help large electrical energy consumers understand their energy usage patterns, achieve energy efficiency and reduce energy costs.
How iHEPS Can Help You
The iHEPS Architecture
This captures energy consumption data from electrical energy metering devices, located at strategic points in the distribution system. The iSCADA gateway will collect data on energy flows (kWh & kW) from meters.
Processing, Evaluation & Recommendation
The next step is to process the data. Evaluation of the data will be conducted to provide a detailed and accurate picture of how electrical energy is being consumed. A recommendation will be prepared after analysis and consultation with the technical department of the facility.
MonitoringThe monitoring system will enable the facility’s technical management to effect additional changes (Intervention) to their usage pattern and evaluate the usefulness of these changes in their energy efficiency efforts with the objective of lowering their electricity bills.
An iHEPS Case Study
Demand response optimisation – Maximum Demand (MD) mitigation. The prudent use of iHEPS derived information allowed for the reduction in Max. Demand (MD) by as much as 3% for a 10 MW consumer.
This resulted in a RM9,000 monthly reduction in the MD portion of the monthly electrical utility bill. Another source of savings (again using iHEPS) came from a shift from peak to off-peak consumption. Overall KWh consumption savings through this peak to off-peak shift additionally reduced RM1,500 from the same monthly electrical utility bill.
The overall savings by implementing these energy efficiency measures (facilitated by iHEPS) resulted in a total monthly saving of approximately RM10,500.
The Return on Investments for this company’s iHEPS investment was thus less than five months and the company continues to enjoy additional savings through longer term energy efficiency measures.
Devices World has provided services to many other clients throughout Malaysia in all sorts of industries, ranging from public works, universities, Information Technology complexes, top shopping malls and even in labs for life sciences.
