In Latvia and Europe are found a variety of power systems, but the effective functioning of them depends directly on sustainable energy planning and energy management. Power system is a set of systems of source of energy, energy management and energy consumption, that produces, converts, transmists, distributes and consume electricity and/or heat energy as a result of concerted practice.
Sustainable energy management approach requires a huge investment, but if we consider that planning the development of energy system is a long-term planning and the lifetime of majority of investments in the energy sector is decades, then Ekodoma with a help of detailed energyplana is able to demonstrate the economical feasibility of investments.
Energy planning can be viewed as an analysis of opportunity, which includes questions about the most appropriate choice of engineering solutions today, tomorrow, and beyond, not only the questions about the economic feasibility of the chosen technology by looking at possible sources to be financed, but also the analysis of savings and project internal profit. In the case if proposal comes to the realization of the event, the energy plan should also include calculations in support of the minimal environmental impact.
*Energy Monitoring Platform
In order to facilitate energy management in municipalities, we have created an online Energy Monitoring Platform to ensure a systematic recording, processing and analysis of energy consumption data.
Our experience shows that most municipalities do not know how much electricity and heating is consumed in their buildings or fuel in their vehicles. It is also common that this information is available only to employees not directly linked to the energy consumption in the object as accountants. It is often undefined who is responsible for the data recording and energy savings in the municipality. And if there is no data recording, it is impossible to know exactly how much energy and money it is possible to save because only what you measure you can control!
Energy Monitoring Platform is a user-friendly system accessible online which enables municipality energy manager and others responsible to jointly build and maintain municipality’s energy consumption data recording for three main sectors:
- Municipal buildings
- Street lighting
- Municipal fleet/Public transport
To facilitate processing and analysis of energy consumption data, which is an essential step in order to plan energy efficiency measures, entered data is automatically compiled and can be reviewed in easily understandable graphs and reports.
