Valuable management information in Planon Sustainability Management solution >

Most data about your energy consumption is available already, however in isolated and fragmented sources like spreadsheets, supplier bills, smart meters or energy management systems. Bringing this data together in a well structured and centralized single database allows you to track and analyze consumption patterns, identify excessive energy use, and compare buildings over time. This solution supports initial and periodical import of existing data-sources and easy integrations with smart meters or energy management systems. This ensures a maximized re-use of existing data and a compliant process of registration and reporting. Key in this solution is the use of standardized classifications like impact areas, energy labels and assessment methods and the use of influencing parameters like emission factors, degree days and cost profiles. This makes the final output reliable, consistent, and truly comparable.

Why Planon software

  • Standard data import templates and web services to connect smart meters, BMS or EMS
  • Standard PDF import function for BREEAM-In-Use assessments
  • Impact areas, assessment methods, cost profiles, and conversion rates van easily be configured within the solution
  • A standard connector to Degreedays.net can automatically import actual heating and cooling day values
  • Both building and asset related sustainability data as well as department related data are supported from within one integrated solution

Your benefits

  • Data in one integrated solution reduces data-maintenance effort significantly
  • Automated consumption validation supports fast detection of excessive usage
  • Automated bill and consumption validation reduces administrative control and effort
  • Import and integration tools guarantee maximized re-use of existing data
  • Catalogues and selection lists drive standardization and increase reporting quality

The Planon Sustainability Management solution collects and registers all relevant consumption data like energy readings, gas consumption, water usage, waste disposals, and commuting impacts in a structured and single integrated database. Data can be entered manually or, like in most cases, be imported from existing data sources, bills, smart meters or specific energy management systems. Next to consumption data, also the carbon emission conversion rates, cost profiles and heating/cooling days are registered to ensure a reliable benchmarking and compliant emission reporting. For building assessments and audits, the solution stores all relevant maintenance documentation, process descriptions, checklists and executed improvement measures.

Basic impact data, such as:

Basic impact data, such as:

  • Structured breakdown of energy sources and impact areas, by default based on Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP)
  • CO2 emission factors per impact area and per period of time
  • Cost profiles per impact area, costs per unit, and applicable time of day, or week, like peak hours and night rates
Meters, gauges and consumption readings, such as:

Meters, gauges and consumption readings, such as:

  • Location, asset, meter type, ID, impact area, cost profiles
  • Consumption readings or registrations, applicable date, time and period
  • Calculated volumes, calculated costs, calculated carbon emission
Sustainable property data, such as:

Sustainable property data, such as:

  • Specific property dimensions, activity, occupancy and workplace data
  • Applicable weather stations, Identification code, cooling days, heating days
  • General reduction targets, applicable impact areas, targeted consumption, emission and cost reduction
Audit data, such as:

Audit data, such as:

  • Assessment structures and questionnaires based on BREEAM-In-Use, LEED existing buildings or other market standards
  • Applicable location, maximum scores, actual assessment scores and populated scores on all levels
  • Workflow status per assessment and per question, assessor, relevant evidence, planned actions
Projects and measures, such as:

Projects and measures, such as:

  • Measure libraries with standard costs, potential cost savings and emission reductions
  • Projects including measures, work breakdown structures, planned start or end date, planned budgets, planned savings, actual budgets, status information
  • Applicable location, asset, meter, supervisor, tradesman or service provider
