ENER-G celebrates success in prestigious building controls awards
ENER-G Controls is celebrating success in the Building Controls Industry Association (BCIA) Awards.
The company's E-MAGINE Building Energy Management System was a finalist in the Technical Innovation of the Year (product) category, sponsored by Modern Building Services.
Steve Berry, general manager of ENER-G Controls, said: "We are delighted that our E-MAGINE building energy management system has been recognised by the elite industry judges in the BCIA awards, which represent the gold standard in building energy controls. Our cloud-based technology, designed, developed and manufactured in the UK, provides a scalable, integrated control system to reduce energy consumption in buildings by up to 30%."
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.
Through open protocols, E-MAGINE can integrate with existing back-office systems and third-party building control systems and equipment. 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.
The BCI Awards were judged by a highly respected 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.
