Parasense introduces entry-level energy monitoring
By monitoring utility consumption remotely and providing information through a web browser, Parasense brings energy monitoring to smaller users.
Headline News is a service developed by Parasense to enable smaller sites to implement utility analysis and reporting cost effectively. The main benefit of this service is that it does not require the installation of hardware on site, significantly reducing set-up costs. Half-hourly meter readings are diverted to Parasense, where the core data is analysed and presented via a web-based network in formats that are easy to read. Information is segmented so that different parties can drill down into the details and timescales that are pertinent to them and take action if required. An initial benchmarking audit is carried out so that the system can accurately flag three different levels of warning in line with targets for energy reduction. Problems areas can then be precisely located so that tasks can be assigned to a relevant individual or contractor to address the problem. Headline News can monitor electricity, gas and water. Reduction targets are set, with seasonal variations such as outside temperature and business fluctuations taken into account. Headline News can also track and record refrigerant usage and system maintenance to provide an auditable trail for F Gas legislation.
