New real-time energy optimisation technology delivers savings beyond controllable load

A Sheffield-based energy solutions company has launched its real-time energy optimisation technology today.

VISTA offers ‘new ways of seeing’ for energy professionals. In fact, it takes energy savings and carbon reduction to a new level by adding an additional layer of intelligence to a building management system (BMS).  The result is a step-change improvement in energy visibility, optimised building control – and guaranteed energy savings, whilst improving comfort levels in the building.

World-leading expertise

Developed by BG Energy Solutions’ (BGES) carbon reduction specialists, VISTA is much more than a ‘box within a BMS’ or a data analytics tool.

Available in two versions - VISTA Pro and VISTA Lite - it integrates seamlessly into an existing BMS, HVAC plant, lighting control and other smart interfaces, in order to save energy by operating both intelligently and efficiently. This is achieved by taking on-board live weather forecasts, energy tariff data and building operation trends.

Building and energy management professionals can take advantage of its user-friendly front end and real-time information – thereby saving building operators time and helping to identify issues quickly.

Powered by EcoPilot®

VISTA Pro uses the power of world-renowned EcoPilot® technology to deliver a complete picture of energy use.

Using the thermal mass signature of a building, EcoPilot® improves a building’s comfort conditions, while automatically optimising energy usage from HVAC systems. What’s more, it achieves maximum estate-wide efficiency and balance by enabling various systems to work in harmony - rather than against - each other.

Because VISTA goes beyond controllable load, the result is significantly reduced energy bills. Alongside this, carbon reduction targets can be more easily achieved.

Impressive ROI & energy savings

Commenting on the launch, BGES Managing Director Gareth Barber said:

“This is a very exciting and significant launch for us. VISTA is the formal productisation of our already-successful and multi-award-winning energy optimisation solution. We have refined our offering even further and have placed end users firmly in mind during this process.

“The result is a powerful energy management tool. Energy savings are typically 20% and ROI is expected in under 2 years. We cannot wait to take VISTA to an even wider audience.”


 

ABM UK strengthens its museum portfolio with Museum of London contract win

ABM UK, a leading provider of facilities solutions, has been awarded a four-year contract with the Museum of London at its London Wall, Docklands and Hackney-based sites.    

The total contract value is £2.4m over the four-year term, with the option for both parties to extend the contract for a further two years.  

ABM UK will supply the Museum of London's three locations with seven staff members, who will provide planned preventative maintenance and reactive works, with a specific focus on mechanical, technical, plumbing and building fabric maintenance.  

Andy Donnell, group managing director of ABM UK, commented: “ABM UK is exceptionally proud to be working with the Museum of London, which is one of the capital's major tourist attractions. It's imperative that the Museum of London is continually in optimum operating condition – ABM UK has the necessary technical, mechanical and energy efficiency expertise to ensure that visitors enjoy the museums in comfortable and well-lit surroundings.  

"ABM UK's parent company, ABM was founded in 1902, and we believe that our understanding and appreciation of just how important history is to an organisation will stand us in good stead in supplying the Museum of London with an outstanding service."  

ABM UK will also provide the Museum of London with an energy manager, who will be based on-site at the three locations for two days per week, and a part-time apprentice. The energy manager’s role will be to ensure that the three properties' energy usage remains as efficient as possible to maximise operating cost savings. ABM UK will support the Museum of London’s education of young talent through apprenticeship placements throughout the contract term.  

The Museum of London – an amalgamation of the Guildhall Museum and the London Museum – was established after the Second World War, and was officially opened by HM Queen Elizabeth II at its current London Wall location in 1976. The museum unveiled a second site – the Museum of London Docklands – in 2003. The two museums tell the story of the world's greatest city and its people, from prehistoric times to the present day, and has plans to move to a new location in West Smithfield by 2022.  

Fiona Wilson, project director at the Museum of London, commented: “From the outset, ABM UK demonstrated total understanding and empathy of what it takes for a museum of our heritage to function properly, and a requirement that our high standards should never slip. We were particularly impressed by ABM UK’s focus on its people, investment in technology and commitment to supporting the museum’s strategic objectives.  

"We are committed to ensuring our properties remain as energy-efficient as possible. We are confident that ABM UK's team will employ the company's advanced know-how to ensure our three buildings are as green as they can be."   

ABM UK has extensive experience working with heritage sites, and counts the London Transport Museum in Covent Garden, the River & Rowing Museum in Henley-on-Thames, and the Honourable Society of Middle Temple, as existing clients, and at which it delivers cleaning and mechanical & electrical services.
