WHY CHOOSE EMMA AI® ?

Betfred

Potential savings identified - more than £140,000pa

ROI on pilot sites greater than 300%

EMMA AI was deployed at 48 Betfred locations in a pilot project and identified significant savings from utility costs.
If rolled out across the Betfred estate potentials savings of more than £140,000 per year were predicted, which represent a ROI of greater than 300%
Len Hodges from Betfred said of the project ‘The pilot showed us how EMMA AI can reveal energy waste we could not have identified cost effectively. We are delighted to be working with Optimal Monitoring on a full rollout, to ensure that sustainability is realised to every part of the Betfred estate.’

Healthcare

Comprehensive action plan developed

Optimal Monitoring developed a far-reaching, action plan for a major public health provider to help them reach their net zero goals.
We deployed our award-winning EMMA AI technology to analyse their data, and from that produced a six-point plan to address issues including data provision supply, behavioural change, infrastructure upgrades, modification of outsourced FM contracts and transformation of job roles to ensure success.

EMMA AI® is ideal for..

We specialise in four sectors but can transform any business – get in contact for a no obligation chat.

Retail

Retail estates typically comprise lots of fairly simple sites (from an energy perspective), where the potential savings from any one site do not always warrant the cost of an active Energy management, monitoring and response system. The cost has always been greater than the problem.

EMMA AI was designed to change that. Because we don’t charge per meter there is no incremental cost per site. The combined savings from hundreds of small/medium sites are likely to be in the hundreds of thousands of pounds.

Hospitality and Leisure

Large throughput businesses where it’s people and spaces that drive energy consumption and carbon emissions. Using EMMA’s advanced functions you can tie energy or carbon to people throughput, occupancy, covers, passengers, guests – whatever metric you choose and have data for. As an advanced energy management system, EMMA AI was designed to do this.

Landlord and FM

Commercial space has always been a tricky area for energy management systems.  Landlords and their FM agents haven’t wanted to get involved in tenanted space and tenants pay for common areas in their service charge so who should do what can get lost or ignored.  Smart buildings, smart tenants and the growth of short-term flexible space are changing all this and smart landlords will be thinking about how they add value to their offer. One way is to make the building smarter, especially  for energy conservation and carbon emissions.  EMMA was designed for that.

Public Sector and Healthcare

Unusual spaces, unusual uses, a ‘nothing is normal’ starting point for each site? Everything from the complexity and uniqueness of ambulance & fire stations, to large acute teaching hospitals as well as police stations, libraries, these are all meat and drink to EMMA AI.  EMMA AI was designed on a ‘nothing is normal’ A new kind of energy management system and essential for those looking to hit Net Zero targets.

EMMA AI® works at multiple levels

EMMA AI was built, in conjunction with the University of Reading and under the auspices of Innovate UK, from a number of machine learning, data fusion and pattern recognition technologies. It does the simple things brilliantly with just half-hourly data, but can work at a much more advanced level if provided with more detailed information.

Simple

Using just fiscal (billing) meter data or fiscal plus some sub meters, EMMA AI will point out things like; timers out of sync, overnight switch off not happening consistently, or water leaks. In most cases, this low hanging fruit will provide an immediate and significant saving.

Advanced

Using more sub meters and data from a building management system (BMS) or a combined heat and power (CHP) plant, EMMA AI informs the behavioural change agenda. For instance, what can be done differently to reduce baseload without diminishing levels of comfort, service or operational efficiency.

Very advanced

When it’s time to consider capex projects to further drive energy and carbon efficiency, EMMA AI provides the information to justify the project. It will measure its impact using evidence based, data driven analysis of real time and predicted consumption, so you can be sure of your decision.

EMMA AI® won the Retail Energy Forum Commission Award for outstanding innovation in the energy management space.
