OTTAWA, Feb. 17, 2015 /CNW/ - Businesses and landlords can quickly identify inefficiencies and energy waste with a new web-based solution offered by Hydro Ottawa's subsidiary Energy Ottawa Inc. The EnergyFlow™ Monitor tracks a building's energy and water use in real-time, providing valuable data to identify inefficiencies or adjust settings based on occupancy patterns. Electricity generation, such as solar PV, can also be monitored and graphically presented.
Energy Ottawa will be marketing the EnergyFlow™ Monitor solution, as the exclusive Canadian distributor for the suite of products.
The product has proven its effectiveness locally, in a project with the RA Centre, the largest private not-for-profit recreation and leisure facility in Ottawa. Since EnergyFlow™ Monitor and suite of tools was first introduced in early 2014, the RA Centre has been able to better understand how and where they are using their energy. As a large multi-function complex, they can now measure, manage and allocate costs for areas such as outdoor sports fields, arenas, restaurant and parking lots.
