Senior managers appreciate SiteWatch’s ability to present complex data as easy-to-understand, actionable reports.
The example below, called a Flow Diagram, deconstructs a hospital’s total energy consumption, dis-aggregating it into its component parts. Intuitive drill-down technology reveals successive levels of detail with the click of a mouse.
A second example, called a Heat Map, shows when peak demand occurs – i.e. dark red blocks. This is example is a single-shift operation, the diagram raises a number of questions:
- In a one-shift operation, why is there energy consumption during off-hours and weekends? Is it possible some of this can be eliminated?
- Why is energy consumption so uneven during the day? Would better scheduling and planning reduce the red blocks that indicate peak consumption?
- Similarly, why does energy consumption vary so much from week to week? Is this driven by some uncontrollable demand factors, or would better scheduling and planning reduce the red blocks that indicate peak consumption?
