What are energy management systems and how can they make you more efficient
At Pilot Group we believe in using technology to make the places we live and work SMART, SAFE and SUSTAINABLE. We’ve developed an advanced energy management system, designed to set new industry standards and increase customer savings. Our new energy management system can now control your complete lighting system, AC units, and compressors, with its user-friendly panel and with the added benefit of remote access. The intelligent energy management system responds to these variable factors to ensure that the heating in any zone never goes above the target temperature.
Our intelligent technology
Our energy management system integrates a central control unit, highly accurate digital sensors, and web-enabled access to optimise the performance of your heating system. The built-in algorithms process the internal and external temperatures to calculate how long the heaters should be running. Unlike conventional heating systems, our energy management system has sensors that are responsive to the changes in conditions and will automatically adjust the heaters to achieve pre-set temperatures based on the data it receives.

A complete energy management solution catered to councils with a monitoring system and ongoing maintenance options
How it works
Located within specific zones, they continually monitor air temperature and can detect air quality measurements, power and energy usage metering, occupancy monitoring and equipment monitoring
All temperature information is fed to the central controller via network cables to avoid dips in connectivity. Data is analysed and should temperatures need altering this information is sent back to the outstation to control the heaters
Gathers all the data from the sensors to push to the central control unit. The Central control unit processes the temperature measurements and sends the data to the outstation to directly control the heaters
Energy data is securely backed up to the cloud and the information can be accessed from any device

“While we have consistently worked to reduce our energy usage over the years, the Vickers system has proved to be an effective tool in reducing our carbon output even further. I would recommend that the Vickers system should be considered for installation in all other Smith International sites. ”
Phil Flanagan, Smith International
“I am delighted to note an actual reduction of over 40%.. it has been a painless and profitable process for us and that’s to the credit of the professional attitude of your company and staff.”

We do not have an app as such, we have a log in portal which is available on chrome or internet explorer. We will give you your own username and password and once you log in, you will be able to remotely access into your management system to make any changes or take control. From the online portal, you will also be able to view energy consumption and real time data.
When we put a proposal together, we take the last 12 months bills and we look at the kWh burned in a 12 month period. We guarantee to save 25% of kWh burned and present an estimated cost saving based on current tariff. After 12 months of having the energy management software installed, we take your last 12 months bills again and perform a fuel analysis comparing kWh burned both pre and post install and we also factor in Degree Days. From that fuel analysis, we will be able to determine if we have achieved the 25% energy savings. If not, we will pay the difference of the percentage of kWh that we haven’t managed to save and use the tariff presented in the proposal and calculate the energy cost.
From installation, the management systems take around 3 weeks for the self-learning programme to kick in. After that period, dependent on your bill your set up and seasonal period, you should start to notice in your bills/kwh burned in around 1-6 month period after having the energy systems installed.
Yes it can, we individually zone heaters. We install an outstation which is connected directly to the heater and actually draws it power from the heater. (The outstation monitors and feeds information from the control panel to the heater). We also install an internal sensor near the outstation or in a desired location by the customer to monitor the internal temperature in that specific area where the heater is located. From the panel, each heater will be displayed with its own individual actual and target temperature which you can set accordingly and set time regimes around each heater using the energy management software.
By entering an Annual Service Agreement with us we help our customers maintain their energy management software after it has been installed. Our technical team will get in touch annually to an Engineer to undergo a service of the systems, where they will re-calibrate sensors to make sure they are set to the right centigrade. Also, they will check connection cables and each outstation. They will go through any time or temperature regimes, to ensure it set correctly to how the customer requires.
Our technical team will be in touch to let customers know if there any new energy management software upgrades and will be able to update the system remotely. Any hardware to match the software will be at discounted rate. By having access to the above, the service agreement helps maintain the energy efficiency of the system which ultimately helps keep energy consumption low and maximise on savings.
Free access to our Helpdesk 24/7, 365 days of the year – Where our technical team can help with any issues or queries. Also, they are able to give out daily codes for Heating/Engineering access.
If there is a problem with the system and our technical team have established they need to send an engineer out – You will not be charged for the call out. Our Engineers will provide a status report which will identify issue and how to resolve.
