Energy Savings from Intelligent Metering and Behavioural Change (INTELLIGENT METERING)
The European Commission Intelligent Energy Europe funded project 'Intelligent Metering' (EIE-04-107) looked at energy and water savings which could be obtained in local and regional public sector buildings with the help of intelligent metering and behavioural change.
Intelligent metering can be used to analyse half hourly monitored data to help to identify activities to change the behaviour of building owners and tenants resulting in energy and water savings. In the project, intelligent metering has been used to obtain half hourly energy and water consumption data for selected local public buildings in 4 countries (Austria, Denmark, Germany and the United Kingdom).
The project has aimed to demonstrate and promote the savings available from the use of intelligent metering and training occupants in public buildings and to show that these savings can be achieved at little, or no, additional cost.
Results of the project have included:
- Intelligent metering of about 70 public buildings
- Energy and water savings from the use of intelligent metering and behavioural change in public buildings
- Building occupants in monitored buildings trained in energy efficiency
- Development of a best practice methodology for intelligent metering
- Wider understanding and knowledge of the intelligent metering approach
- Development of a framework for ongoing training.
A range of information on the project is available on the project website including the final report for the project, a roadmap for intelligent metering, train the trainer work modules, case studies, and various training resources.
