Requirements

In order to be able to use this app you will need first:

  1. To send data to the platform.
  2. To accept the devices and datapoints generated when the data gets into the platform.
  3. To assign those devices to their corresponding location.
  4. To configure the reference meters for each location.
  5. To install the app through the EMS platform Apps market.
  6. Configure the postcode on the location settings.

2. Energy source selector: select the energy source from the ones available
3. Device selector: select the "Reference meter" type which you are going to compare among all your locations. You can select Main consumption, HVAC, Machinery, Lighting...
4. Parameter: select the parameter which you want to visualise among the reference meters of your locations.
5. Ratios: you can divide your consumption over the desired ratios and compare in a more realistic way all your locations taking into account external factors. By default, it is selected the "Surface" ratio.
6. Ranking: clicking on "Show ranking", you will be able to visualise a detailed ranking of all the locations, indicating its corresponding energy consumption.

Results 

As can be seen in the previous image, the ranking will differentiate 3 groups of locations:

  • Efficient
  • Normal
  • Inefficient
  • No data

Each of the locations will be listed with the basic information and the consumed energy for the selected period of time. Moreover, a filter can be applied to the ranking to visualise a specific consumption range.

Clicking on "Download", you can download an excel file with the ranking according to the selected ratio or ratios.

Moving the cursor over the map, you will see in detail each of the locations and their rate of consumption. Similarly, you can quickly see if the location is not so efficient according to the colours specified above.
