Pilot Group’s EnergyMgr 2.0, launched in October, is expected to save more than one million tonnes of CO2 being produced in 2020.

 

Intelligent Reporting Tool

 

With a new intelligent reporting tool, the EnergyMgr 2.0 will automatically convert kWh burned to CO2 tonnes, which allows customers to keep on top of CO2 used month on month, year on year.

 

By measuring how much energy is used, businesses can begin to see how changing some processes and ways of working can significantly reduce the overall carbon footprint. The Pilot Group hopes to revolutionise the monitoring, control and management of heating, air conditioning systems and compressors through this Energy Management System

 

“At Pilot Group we believe in using technology to make the places we live and work smart, safe and sustainable.

 

– Chris Pearson,

Managing Director, Pilot Group

 

In addition to improved control and management of heating, the upgraded EnergyMgr 2.0 system can now control an existing lighting system, or new system which can be supplied by Hilclare, resulting in an all in one, cost effective management system.

 

Central Control Unit

 

The EMS integrates a central control unit with an intelligent software and highly accurate digital sensors to optimise the performance of industrial heating systems.

 

Chris Pearson, Managing Director at Pilot Group commented: “Since 1991 we have saved more than 9 million tonnes of CO2 entering the earth’s atmosphere, something we are extremely proud of, and, following two months of strong sales and by utilizing the visualisation feature, we expect the Energy Management System to save more than one million tonnes of CO2 being produced in 2020.

 

“Not only this but the EnergyMgr 2.0 utilises the latest technology to provide customers with average savings of 40% on their heating bills and coupled with our LED lighting solutions this can rise to 60%.”
