Monitoring & Targeting Programme Delivers Energy Savings of 30% for JLL

Case Study information
110 Queen Street is one of the most prestigious new build office developments in Glasgow in recent years. The asset is rated BREEAM Excellent, features on-site renewable technology, a Delmatic intelligent lighting management system and has the highest ‘A’ rating Energy Performance Certificate. However, too often the operational performance of these well-furnished buildings fails to match their high-quality sustainability design specifications.
To ensure 110 Queen Street maximised its energy saving potential, a detailed Monitoring & Targeting (M&T) programme was deployed. M&T programmes enable Property Managers to track energy usage at 15 and/or 30 minute intervals to analyse energy profiles for operational improvement and anomaly detection. Since January 2017, EVORA has provided a managed solution using their SIERA M&T software platform, providing monthly operational efficiency improvements.
This includes month-on-month comparison and analysis at a meter-by-meter level, and, crucially, drawing from extensive sustainability experience, EVORA Consultants are able to extract quick win opportunities and deliver these recommendations directly to the building management team.
The graph below displays an energy meter profile at 110 Queen Street before and after interventions were brought about by the M&T programme. The post intervention line (dark blue) displays a significantly improved energy profile that has delivered savings of 30% without any capital expenditure. This has been achieved despite increased occupancy at the property throughout the year.
• savings of 30% without any capital expenditure
• actual saving of £30,000
• annual CO2 reduction of 63 tonnes
• return on investment in under 3 months
