Building management systems can help schools drive down energy use

Building management systems capable of collecting and interpreting big data, and then leveraging the results by adapting the heating systems’ functionality for optimum performance are some of the most important measures that could help schools drive down their energy bills, experts believe.

The operation of educational facilities can be very complex. Additional energy consumption can even increase outside of the main school hours, for example during additional functions, weekends and evenings.

For this reason, behaviour of the occupants in relation to the energy use can be part of the big data picture, when the occupancy levels, the usage of areas and the management of doors, windows and lights are considered.

Vital to the management of energy in schools is the integration of engineering and controls expertise into energy and building management system (BMS) monitoring/management activities.

A remote monitoring and management capability that operates on a number of facilities is by far the best way to improve energy and operational performance, where hands on expertise can be incorporated.
