RiTA Utilities & Energy Monitoring Systems for NHS Facilities

RiTA Utilities & Energy Monitoring Systems for NHS Facilities

With the mandatory energy targets set by the Minister of State and Health, energy efficiency is high on the agenda for NHS healthcare facilities. The overall aim is to reduce carbon emissions by 80% by 2050.

To reduce utilities and energy consumption, all NHS facilities require reliable and timely data to:

  • gain an accurate understanding of usage 
  • target areas to achieve maximum benefit
  • monitor the effectiveness of energy reduction initiatives 
  • prove that Government targets are being achieved

ITS' RiTA Utilities and Energy Monitoring System is a reliable solution that accurately monitors, records and reports utilities and energy usage. The system is flexible and can be installed in a wide range of NHS environments including small, medium and large offices, surgeries, care homes, health facilities and hospitals.

The RiTA Utilities and Energy Monitoring System is designed to automatically measure and record utilities and energy usage. The system is simple to use, and provides access to a range of real-time and historical data. With this information NHS personnel can gain an accurate understanding of their usage patterns.

RiTA produces daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly and yearly graphical trend reports. Any irregularities in usage patterns are highlighted in the graphs and the user can examine the data to pinpoint the exact date and time, for further investigation.

Temperature data can be automatically acquired by the system and regression analyses can be performed to demonstrate the correlation between variables and usage e.g. temperature and electricity usage. This data can be displayed in tables and regression charts.

The electricity monitoring system module meets Government-set energy efficiency criteria. As a result, customers may be eligible to claim an Enhanced Capital Allowance on their energy saving technology investment. The ECA scheme was introduced to encourage companies to invest in energy improvement technologies. The ECA explains: “If your business pays corporation tax at 30%, every £1,000 spent on qualifying equipment would reduce its tax bill in the year of purchase by £300. In contrast, for every £1,000 spent, the generally available capital allowance for spending on plant and machinery would reduce your business’s tax bill in the year of purchase by £75. In other words, an ECA can provide a cash flow boost of £225 for every £1,000 it spends in the year of purchase”.
  
With reliable statistics at your fingertips, the data can be used to challenge suppliers’ billing figures, gain an accurate understanding of energy usage, and target the areas that will deliver the greatest reductions in usage.
