2 Advanced Meter Requirement Advanced metering mandated by Energy Policy Act of 2005 (EPAct 2005), the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 (EISA 2007), policies, and directives.Deadlines to install advanced metersElectric by 30 Sep 2012 (EPAct 2005)Gas and Steam by 30 Sep 2016 (EISA 2007)Meter buildings with est. $35K/yr utility cost and/or 29,000 sq ft, and reimbursable tenant facilities.
3 End StateEstablish the energy information infrastructure (installation energy footprint) that will enable/provide:Management of smart buildingsEnergy Managers who are energy smart and more effective to meet energy reduction goals.Building occupants are energy aware and actively participate in energy reduction actions.Reduce energy wasteContinuous improvements in energy efficienciesMeet the requirements of NetZero by 2030.
4 Define the scope of the action What data do we need to collect and analyze?What is the data flow architecture?What hardware and software is needed to collect and transfer data?What hardware and software is currently installed and needs to be integrated into the system?How will the system security (Information Assurance) be tested, implemented, and maintained?Who will sustain/maintain the systems?
5 Meter Data Flow Enterprise Installation Meter Data Management 3) Transmitraw meter dataMeter Data Management1) Gas pulse counts1) Water pulse countsElectric meterInstallationMeter data collectionWater MeterGas Meter4) Analyze meter data2) Collectraw meter dataGateway serverFront End Server5) Report GenerationEnergy manager views data via a web portalThe gas and water meter data flows through the electric meter to the front end server of the EEDRS.The meter data is transferred every 15 minutes to the MDMS gateway and forwarded to the MDMS enterprise servers.The data is analyzed is veiwed in graphs and charts.The data can be exported to excel or pdf.The energy manager can view the 15 min meter data on MDMS. (Look at the individual meter readings.)AccreditationBoundarySecurity
