What do you want to accomplish with Submetering?

The Submetering Wizard provides information about the comprehensive uses and benefits of submetering systems. Use the wizard to learn about submetering features and benefits by submeter type. You can also mark which benefits you’ve already attained in an already installed system and print or export a customized list of benefits.

Electrical Circuit

Electrical circuit submeters measure resource use of a single panel, or submeters can be placed at multiple points within a panel system, or at branches of a circuit to measure resource use of multiple circuits. Circuit submeters enable occupant energy-use behavioral awareness, improved tenant billing, enhanced space resource use, and optimized operations and maintenance programs.

Electrical System

System-level electric submeters enable management to easily control systems such as lighting, heating and cooling, and control start and stop times from one central platform. System-level submetering enhances the O&M Staff's ability to analyze specific energy load performance at the system-level, benchmark and optimize building performance, and enables more refined project measurement and verification.

Electrical - End Use Device

End-use submetering provides the finest data resolution for energy and resource use of a particular system or equipment type for more detailed analysis. An objective of end-use submetering is to monitor equipment performance of high energy users in order to identify technology inefficiencies and validate savings estimates. Chillers, boilers, cooling towers, pumps, and motors are examples of equipment that are submetered to capture more granular performance metrics. End-use submeters can provide informative feedback mechanisms and data that can influence occupant behavior and tenant practices, such as turning off computers and other ancillary devices.

Gas

Natural gas submeters measure the flow rate of natural gas and usage for billing. Monitoring natural gas flow rates and consumption at individual zones helps in assessing process efficiencies, identifying unusual consumption points, promoting conservation, and providing a means for cost allocation to various operating areas. Typically, the largest consumption of natural gas is used for heating.

Water

Water submeters are used to measure the quantity of water used by a facility, building, building area, device for indoor or outdoor water use, and potable or non-potable water users. Water submeters help to detect water losses, identify water conservation and efficiency measures, and provides helpful information for the rate of water usage and conservation incentives.
