In-house FM departments and FM service providers are coming under increasing pressure to deliver ongoing energy savings for their organisation or clients. But once you’ve done the obvious things, what comes next?

One obvious area is to take another look at the boiler room. Even if you already have a building management system (BMS), weather compensation, boiler sequencing, demand control and modulating burners there are still further savings that can be achieved through load optimisation for individual boilers. So what are the benefits of this retrofit technology?

Financial benefits

  • Instant energy savings, typically between 10% and 25%.

  • Savings verified in accordance with the International Performance Measurement and Verification Protocol (IPMVP).

  • Low capital investment.

  • Quick payback (typically 18 months to 2 years).

  • Detailed business case provided for gaining board approval.

  • Cost-negative on energy-saving MACC (Margin Abatement Cost Curve).

  • Track record within Energy Performance Contracts.

Operational benefits

  • Easy deployment.

  • Fully project-managed with minimum pressure on your own resources.

  • One solution fits all boilers – regardless of the size and age of the boiler.

  • Installation in less than 2 hours with no downtime to the buildings operation.

  • No seasonal calibration, maintenance or continuous commissioning.

  • Integrates and complements all types and age of BMS.

  • Self-learning technology – no programming required.

  • Automatically adapts using real time measurement and analysis.

  • 5-year warranty.

Boiler load optimisation is a proven and obvious solution that adds to the energy-efficiency measures you have already implemented, and captures savings you or your client need to deliver. A recent project for the MoD is forecasted to save over £120,000 per annum following M2G being installed across their estate. These levels of cost saving enable further investment in other energy efficiency projects or to improve the bottom line.
