ENER-G building controls innovation shortlisted for energy industry award
ENER-G Controls' E-MAGINE Building Energy Management System has been shortlisted for a Building Controls Industry Association Award.
E-MAGINE is a finalist in the Technical Innovation of the Year (product) category. The award winner will be announced on Thursday 9 May 2013 following assessment by an independent judging panel comprising experts from BCIA, The Building and Engineering Services Association, Chartered Institute of Building Services Engineers, built environment experts BSRIA, Reading University and independent engineering experts.
E-MAGINE is a cloud-based energy control system that provides a scalable, integrated control system to reduce energy consumption in buildings by up to 30%. Through open protocols it can integrate with existing back-office systems and third-party building control systems and equipment.
A key component of E-MAGINE is an integrated front-end energy management tool called E-VISION. This is aimed at designers, installers and end-users to help them design, commission, control, analyse and manage energy use remotely. It can be used for a broad range of applications from boilers and chillers to fan coils, domestic hot water and air filtration.
Typical return on investment ranges from 12 to 60 months, but ENER-G can finance the E-MAGINE technology under a guaranteed savings agreement to provide organisations with immediate cost and carbon saving benefits on a pay-as-you-save basis.
ENER-G Controls specialises in the energy management of buildings and offers an end-to-end energy management service - from initial feasibility assessments, to full design, installation, commissioning and after-sales support.
