RiTA Utilities Energy Monitoring Systems for Manufacturing & Processing Plants

RiTA Utilities Energy Monitoring Systems for Manufacturing & Processing Plants

With the government's commitment to reduce the UK's carbon emissions by 80% by 2050, energy efficiency is a high on the agenda for manufacturing and processing plants.

Large manufacturing and processing plants will be involved in the Government’s new Carbon Reduction Commitment Scheme which will be launched on 1st April 2010. The scheme has three main aims - to improve energy efficiency, save companies money and reduce carbon emissions.
It will require large energy users to
purchase carbon credits and bonuses or penalties will be given depending on a company’s achievement in reducing emissions.

To reduce utilities and energy consumption, all manufacturing and processing plants 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 environments including small, medium and large offices, manufacturing sites and processing plants.

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 users 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 and production 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 or production 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, identify equipment problems, and target areas that will deliver the greatest reductions in usage.
