Energy Analysis and Management Solutions for Government and Municipalities
Government and municipality buildings and organizations face unique energy management challenges, given that they operate to serve the public, rather than to turn a profit. Funded by taxpayer dollars, their operations and strategic decisions require complete transparency as well as the ability to meet sustainability initiatives and regulatory and reporting requirements.
Using our energy analytics platform RTIS®, we help public sector buildings identify and prioritize energy reduction initiatives, improve sustainability performance and reporting, and reduce operating costs without interfering with the public duties of building occupants.
RTIS® Offers Government and Municipality Buildings the Following Benefits:
Unveil Cost Saving Opportunities
RTIS® can identify ways to reduce energy costs in a variety of ways, ranging from identifying wasted usage when government offices are closed on the weekends, to temporarily reducing usage during high-cost periods.
Detect and Prevent Equipment Inefficiencies
By analyzing energy data from specific pieces of equipment, like HVAC systems in government office buildings, RTIS® can detect and prevent equipment malfunctions, so governments can reduce maintenance costs and equipment downtime.
Utility Bill Analysis and Optimization
Utilize the RTIS® rate utility rate engine to identify the most attractive distribution rate classes and supply rates based on the schedule and seasonality of each building’s unique energy usage profile.
Identify Energy Investment Opportunities
By applying RTIS® analytics, government and municipality buildings can determine which equipment and device replacements have the most attractive ROI and energy savings potential.
Benchmark Equipment, Buildings and Government Departments
RTIS® can help benchmark energy performance across equipment, buildings, campuses, or even other similar-sized schools in order to measure and identify under performing assets.
Optimize Building Usage
RTIS® reveals areas of the building that are wasting energy during idle and unoccupied periods, like conference rooms that are being heated during weekends or on public holidays to minimize waste and create more intelligent energy efficient schedules and practices.
As part of serving the public, many government organizations and municipalities are taking steps to improve sustainability. Working with Artis, they can find ways to increase energy efficiency to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, as well as identify opportunities to add alternative energy sources so that they can also provide constituents with more efficient power.
Since governments are accountable to the public, many are looking for ways to enhance transparency, such as by increasing access to reports online. By using RTIS®, they can more easily create digital reports on energy usage and sustainability, so they have a prime opportunity to share this information with the public.
Anticipate Periods of High Energy Costs and Pollution
Utilize weather, grid conditions, and historical facility usage data to predict upcoming periods of high energy usage and cost.
Energy Cost Transparency & Optimization
Utility bills are opaque and difficult to understand. The RTIS® rate engine provides transparency and reduces costs by analyzing your building’s energy usage profile and determining the most attractive rate classes, supply rates, identifying billing errors and applicable tax credits, and tracking utility tariff changes.
Through real-time monitoring and analytics on your critical loads, RTIS® dissects your business processes and building system performance to identify process improvements that reduce costs and improve your company’s sustainability.
RTIS® tracks historical and real-time equipment performance and factors in weather conditions to detect performance anomalies and inefficiencies to identify attractive capital investment opportunities.
