Energy Monitoring and Management Methodology for the Banking Sector - Portuguese Case Study

A. M. Carreiro, J. Estima, A. Bernardes

Abstract

This paper addresses the problem of the worldwide electricity consumption increase, namely in the building sector, with the focus on the office (banking) market segment. Buildings are dynamic entities, with constantly changing needs and occupancy. An energy audit shows only a snapshot of the building profile because it is driven at a specific time, and utility bills can be viewed as “rear-view mirror” since they only show past consumptions and not real-time consumptions. In this way, this paper presents an energy monitoring and remote management methodology for the banking sector and the case study accomplished in one of the most well established Portuguese banks. The presented methodology reached measured annual savings of 18,5% of the total consumption of the 19 central buildings and the 358 branches involved in the project.
