Energy monitoring of a property can be a powerful tool for both building managers and tenants. Collecting data on energy consumption within a property can assist in both accurate billing of tenants as well as identifying areas to implement better energy efficiencies.
By deploying multi-circuit metering solutions facility owners and managers can keep close tabs on HVAC systems, large manufacturing equipment and other devices, circuit by circuit. This allows for a very granular view of energy consumption within a facility.
Accuenergy offers a variety of power and energy metering tools including multi-circuit solutions. These meters feature a variety of communication protocols, offering ease-of-access to metering data.

Energy Service Companies
ESCO's will often be called on to implement power and energy metering solutions for large buildings/facilities. ESCO's are able to provide property owners/managers with a diverse metering solution that offers visibility to the energy needs of a property. These solutions can include tenant sub metering, power quality metering, energy efficiency audits, and the ability to communicate a wealth of readings remotely.
Commercial applications have very diverse energy needs, from understanding the energy consumption of entire properties, to identifying potential issues in power quality. Comprehensive sub metering of commercial properties can provide detailed visibility of the energy needs of entire properties, common loads, HVAC systems and more.
Public spaces like community centers and schools are able to take advantage of government-sponsored energy efficiency programs. These programs set out certain energy efficiency guidelines that the facility must adhere to. In order to do so, proper power and energy metering of a property is necessary to not only understand current energy demand, but also confirm the effectiveness of efficiency efforts.
Healthcare facilities, specifically hospitals, can benefit greatly from effective power and energy metering practices. These practices provide visibility to the energy needs of a facility, but additionally can provide valuable power quality information. Power quality is essential to hospital emergency and operating rooms, and is important to be closely monitored to help ensure quality care is offered to all patients.
Application: Branch Circuit Monitoring
Branch circuit metering or dense circuit metering is a form of monitoring multiple circuits together in close proximity. This allows for the segregation of multiple users, tenants, or devices with the convenience of using a single device while maintaining the integrity of each individuals measurement.
Application: Metering HVAC Systems
HVAC systems typically account for the largest energy cost in non industrial buildings, metering this consumption can illuminate valuable data as a component of larger building studies or in an attempt to reduce energy costs.
Application: Remote Metering
Remote metering is possible through a variety of communications options typically found in most power and energy meter options, but is typically achieved through ethernet connection. This remote monitoring offers flexibility in project location, ease-of-access, and improved ability to integrate with other devices and more importantly energy management software.
Application: Tenant Submetering
Tenant submetering implements an accountability for energy consumption and provides a fair and equitable solution for utility billing with multiple tenants. Sub metering is a relatively simple application that allows property owners to take control of their energy bills and gather a clearer picture of each individual tenant consumption.
