Today’s challenges

Buildings, a major source of global energy savings

Rising use of heating, air conditioning, lighting, and information technologies has made our buildings increasingly energy hungry. These systems far outstrip other applications as the number-one consumer of electricity. In fact, electricity accounts for up to 50% of CO

2

emissions attributable to residential and commercial buildings.

Under the Kyoto Protocol, industrialized countries have agreed to curb their CO

2

emissions by 5.2% by 2012 and by 75% by 2050. Buildings are today a major source of potential energy savings that can help us meet these targets and protect our environment.

Greater energy effi ciency starts today

If we are to meet our Kyoto targets, we must start today. Boosting energy efficiency is the quickest, cheapest, and cleanest way to reduce both consumption and CO

2

emissions.

Making your building more energy efficient does not necessarily involve costly and disruptive changes to your installation. Based on existing building systems, it is possible to reduce energy consumption by an impressive 30% simply by implementing easy-to-use services and technologies already available—but the time to start is now!

This guide is designed to point designers and other professionals to the right solution for each building’s unique needs. Inside, you will find a comprehensive range of solutions to make your energy safer, more reliable, more efficient, and cleaner.

Energy effi ciency: tighter regulations, new incentives

Today’s challenges

New regulations now require energy-effi ciency measures and more energy-effi cient equipment

Energy efficiency is no longer an option. The Kyoto Protocol has spurred governments worldwide to pass legislation to ensure smarter energy use in buildings.

The European Union, for example, made a firm commitment in March 2007 to reduce

CO

2

emissions by 20% by 2020. Part of a package of measures known as “3x20 by 2020”, the reduction will come with a 20% improvement in energy efficiency and a shift in the EU’s energy mix to include 20% renewable energy.

Other countries have adopted a slightly longer timeline and more ambitious targets, aiming for a 50% reduction in CO

2

emissions by 2050.

Reaching these targets will require real change, and governments are stepping up their efforts to legislate, regulate, and set standards to improve energy efficiency.

New legislation, new rules

The new trend toward tighter energy-efficiency legislation started with the Kyoto Protocol.

Laws like the US Energy Policy Act and the

European Union Energy Directive effectively set the rules for our energy future.

Public- and private-sector initiatives

• EU standard EN 15232

This standard is used to estimate the impact of building automation systems on active energy efficiency, stating potential savings on heating and electricity according to the type of building.

• LEED

LEED is a green building rating system developed by the US Green Building Council

(USGBC). It provides a suite of standards for environmentally-sustainable building construction and renovation practices.

Since its inception in 1998, LEED has grown to encompass over 50 US states and

30 countries.

Financial incentives

Many governments are using financial incentives or market mechanisms to encourage energy efficiency. These include tax credits, interest-free government loans, partial sales tax exemptions on energy-efficiency equipment and services, subsidized bank loans, and local grants from government agencies and organizations in the private sector.

• White certificates

White certificates are granted for energyefficiency measures. Some governments require all electrical and gas utilities over a certain size to provide proof that they have helped customers reach a particular level of energy savings. Utilities that meet minimum requirements can then sell their surplus certificates to other utilities.

The new regulations will have an impact on all buildings

All buildings—both existing and new—and all energy systems are concerned:

> Lighting

> Electrical distribution

> Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning

> Cooling systems

A more effi cient, smarter, cleaner energy future

A commitment to energy savings

Energy audit

& measure

Ask any building professional. So-called “passive” energy-efficiency measures like insulation or low-energy-consumption equipment are not enough to meet the challenges our energy future has in store.

Today, it is a building’s net energy consumption that counts: the difference between energy consumed and energy produced.

And, to ensure that the buildings of the future are net energy producers, we must reduce consumption and offset what we do use by producing energy from renewable sources.

We can help you achieve net-producer status, and generate substantial savings by optimizing the

3 pillars of energy-efficiency:

> Reduce consumption by implementing active energy-efficiency solutions

> Produce clean energy from renewable resources

> Optimize consumption by using the latest technologies

We can help you make savings!

Start with measurement

You can’t manage what you can’t measure. Measuring is the first essential step in raising awareness and changing habits and behaviours .

Reduce energy consumption

• Use automation and control systems to ensure that you only use the energy you really need

• Add monitoring and maintenance services to achieve lasting improvements

Reduce energy cost

• Use strategies that optimize or reduce energy acquisition and management costs

• Opt for renewable energy like photovoltaics to generate electricity

10

Achieve measurable savings

We use the International Performance

Measurement and Verification Protocol

(IPMVP) to measure and verify the energy savings we promise for our energyefficiency solutions:

• Pre-installation audit: baseline energy consumption data are measured and calculated

• Post-installation audit: baseline data are compared with post-installation consumption data to determine actual savings

Correct your installation’s power factor and reduce energy costs

I plan to upgrade my electrical installation to meet the new standards. I want to take advantage of the opportunity to reduce my electricity bills and boost the available power without switching to a new utility contract.

Regulate power factor automatically by using a Varset reactive energy compensator

The solution automatically regulates power factor correction according to load fluctuations. The resulting power factor, close to 1, frees up additional available power, allowing you to add on to your installation. The system is built around a Varlogic power factor controller, which is also available in a Modbus-based communicating version.

Example:

With a utility contract for 250 kVA with an average power factor of 0.7, penalties are charged for consumption over 175 kW

(175 ÷ 0.7 = 250 kVA).

The Varset system includes a bank of 200 kvar capacitors, which are automatically switched on or off depending on the power factor detected. A current detector measures consumption.

The system guarantees a power factor greater than 0.92, regardless of load, raising the actual consumption limit to

230 kW (250 x 0.92=230 kW), or 55kW of available energy.

Reduce power loss by fi ltering harmonics

I need to reduce the overall harmonics generated by my factory’s variable speed drives and uninterruptible power supply. My budget is limited, and the solution has to be simple.

Install AccuSine PCS active filtering for your electrical installation

Variable speed drives and uninterruptible power supplies constitute non-linear loads. They use a fundamental sine wave (the same frequency as the network) and generate additional harmonics waves whose frequencies are multiples of the network’s frequency.

The AccuSine PCS active filter constantly generates an equal yet opposite current to the harmonic currents generated by non-linear loads, leaving only the fundamental frequency on the network.

The AccuSine PCS is fed from a specific outgoing feeder. It detects and analyzes the current upline in real time from the non-linear loads and sends out a compensating current via its power line.

The following oscillograms illustrate the total current harmonic distortion (THDI) before and after the installation of the active filter.

For the user

Take advantage of discount

MV utility rates without the risk of counterparty power cuts

To guarantee the lowest possible utility rates,

I have agreed to go off the power grid during peak hours. Therefore, to avoid costly downtime,

I need a back-up power supply that kicks in automatically after just a few seconds.

For the user

Install an Automatic Transfer System

(ATS) to switch the MV connection to a back-up generator

Save energy

Depending on your rate agreement, the utility sends out a signal just before the higher peak rate kicks in or power is cut off.

The ATS receives this signal and:

• Starts the generator

• Turns on the main switch once the generator is ready

• Turns off the generator switch

Power is restored in less than 10 seconds.

Increase power availability

ATS ensures power availability, performing the same functions if voltage loss is detected on the main electrical line, with power generally restored in less than 15 seconds.

• The fault passage indicator (FPI) ensures the ATS is locked if a fault current is detected to avoid cutting off power to a properlyfunctioning line.

> Guarantee lowest possible utility rates

Depending on your business and type of building, HVAC can account for over 40% of energy consumption.

You can reduce

HVAC energy consumption and sustain optimal consumption levels

by improving the control and management of ventilation, temperatures, and system usage.

You can meet today’s demand for energy efficiency, occupant comfort, and compliance with standards by implementing one or more of the following solutions:

> Install variable speed drives on pumps and fans to adjust energy use to actual need.

> Design control architectures that facilitate operation and interaction of heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and window blinds, zone by zone.

> Choose equipment that improves energy quality by eliminating power surges and reducing harmonics.

Depending on whether you choose simple, standalone control devices, a comprehensive building management system, or a solution somewhere in between,

you can reduce the amount of energy your HVAC system uses by up to 30%.

Choose the solution that’s right for you

Regulate kitchen exhaust hood speed according to temperature

My restaurant’s exhaust hood is always running at full speed, even when my cooking equipment isn’t being used. I’d like to fi nd a way to reduce the amount of energy wasted and lower my utility bills.

The solution consists in using variable speed drives (VSD) to adjust exhaust operation to the amount of activity in the kitchen.

Fan speed is controlled according to air temperature.

A sensor inside the exhaust hood detects air temperature, and an Altivar 12 variable speed drive adjusts the exhaust fan motor speed.

The cooler the air, the slower the fan runs, down to a minimum ventilation level. The exhaust hood is automatically turned up or down to meet actual needs, resulting in substantial savings.

An optical smoke sensor can be added to boost the system’s regulation capabilities. This configuration requires an additional control system.

For the user

> Energy savings of

20%

to

50%

, depending on use:

maximum exhaust hood operation is usually limited to just a few hours a day

> Fast ROI,

usually within 18 to

24 months

> Quieter operation

• Lowering fan speed by 20% reduces noise by 20%

• Reducing speed by half virtually eliminates noise

> Lower maintenance costs

Regulate cooling-tower water temperature and save energy

My cooling tower is a constant concern.

Maintenance needs vary widely depending on the season, and the installation uses too much energy.

I want a solution that will improve yield and reduce costs.

Use speed drives to regulate the tower’s fan and pump

The best way to control air-water exchange in a cooling tower is to use variable speed drives to control the tower’s fan and pump, eliminating additional maintenance-hungry mechanical systems while meeting the tower’s needs. A PLC regulates fan airflow and pump volume via the variable speed drives.

This solution uses up to 50% less energy than direct-start fans and pumps and eases maintenance.

Over a given season, the fan and pump motors must operate at full speed just 2% to 5% of the time—the rest of the time this energy is wasted. Direct-start motors require additional mechanical systems to solve problems like fan blade rotation due to wind, or additional resistance due to freezing.

This solution uses 20% less energy than two-speed motors and also improves maintenance.

While two-speed motors offer a partial solution to energy consumption issues, they do nothing to resolve maintenance issues.

Regulate temperature by maintaining air pressure

It is diffi cult to make heating and air conditioning systems more energy effi cient without affecting occupant comfort. The fact that

HVAC systems are often set up by fl oor further complicates the situation. I need a fl exible solution that can adapt to fl uctuating occupancy while using only the amount of energy that is actually needed.

Use variable speed drives to regulate air pressure and temperature

Take a chilled-beam heating system, for example. The most energy-efficient solution for this type of heating system would be to add temperature regulation functions via a thermostat, plus pressure regulation in the beam and the room.

The thermostat (T) (see diagram opposite) controls air flow by adjusting the shutters on the intake vent (1). The pressure in the heated beam (2) and the room (3) are kept at constant levels by varying fan speed. The two ATV21 variable speed drives feature an integrated proportional regulation function that allows them to control the fans directly based on information from the pressure sensors (P).

The solution optimizes regulation regardless of fluctuating occupancy patterns. To fine tune energy consumption even further using presence detectors, automatic blind controllers, and timers, a building management system would be required.

In this type of setup, the variable speed drives and sensors would be connected to the BMS via a communication bus.

Control room lighting automatically according to occupation and natural light

The solution is built around presence detectors linked to switching actuators, and features a push-button control for use in manual mode. The entire system is connected via KNX open bus to facilitate extensions and upgrades.

Thanks to the presence detectors, lights are automatically switched on when a person enters the room if natural light is below a preset level. Lights are automatically switched off when no movement is detected in the room and the preset time delay has passed.

In manual mode, lights can be switched permanently on or off. Switching the system on in manual mode restarts automatic presence and natural light detection mode.

Achieve simple lighting control using natural light and building occupation

I want to reduce the amount of energy used by my building’s lighting by taking advantage of natural light in corridors and areas with large windows. Most importantly, I want to keep lights from being left on all weekend!

A controller is programmed with each area’s occupation patterns. A light sensor allows the lights to be switched on, via the controller, when natural light levels are too low. The system is flexible enough to allow occupants to override the restriction, switching lights on for short periods of time as needed.

Each area is outfitted with the usual light fixtures and push-button on/off switches, and is powered by an electrical circuit controlled by an impulse relay that receives commands from a controller. The controller also includes digital inputs from one or more twilight switches that constantly measure natural light levels.

Depending on the configuration, the controller can either automatically switch lights on in a given area, depending on time of day, or periodically send lights-off commands when natural light is high, or when the programmed occupation time is over. Flexible programming ensures an optimal balance between energy savings and user comfort.

How it works

• Corridor lighting is switched on when employees begin to arrive at 7.30 am.

• There is enough natural light for people to use the area comfortably, so the lights remain switched off until

5.41 pm, when the natural light is no longer suffi cient.

• In the meantime,

Mr Smith switches on the lights in his offi ce when he arrives.

A short time later, at

8.50 am, the lights are switched off automatically due to good natural light.

Mr Smith switches them on again to perform a task at his desk, and the lights remain on for 15 minutes.

• From 4.55 pm on, when natural light is lower, Mr Smith can again leave the lights on as long as he wants.

• At 7 pm, the automatic shut-off kicks in again.

Install digital kilowatt-hour meters on selected loads

The solution is based on simple digital kilowatt-hour meters to track energy consumption. Users simply read consumption information directly from the meters’ displays to identify the leading sources of overconsumption for each area of the building.

These cost-effective pulse meters are designed for sub-metering of active energy consumed by a single phase or three-phase electric circuit with or without distributed neutral.

Direct measurement up to 40/63 A is possible. Above 63A, a current transformer must be used. The meters can be connected to a PC or PLC for analysis and reporting.

I need to be able to identify abnormal or atypical consumption easily and at regular intervals so that I can control the overall fl ow of energy throughout the building.

Gather metering data via an iRio RTU, track consumption and detect problems

The hub of the system is an iRio RTU (Remote Terminal Unit), which picks up metering data from power meters (pulsing contacts or Modbus Serial Line communication) and flow meters

(pulsing contact, Modbus Serial Line communication, or M-Bus open metering communication). The terminal then generates the necessary databases, dashboards, curves, and reports. It also transmits data.

The solution detects problems like flow leakages, overrides, and equipment left on, and then provides preconfigured indicators and curves at set intervals or on demand via a standard web browser as well as a downloadable metering database for indepth analysis.

Additional functions are also available, including an alarm generator for maximum energy consumption overruns, power faults, and abnormal consumption cycles and a load controller for load shedding, automatic shut down, and override limitation.

Energy metering can be provided by a number of meter options depending on budget and performance requirements:

• Compact NSX built-in power meter

Schedule selected loads simply via your BMS*

* Building Management System

My business is fl exible enough to schedule certain energy-consuming activities during less expensive off-peak hours. What’s the best way to take advantage of this opportunity?

Integrate a centrally-managed load-shedding system into your BMS

The solution is built around a PC or PLC that controls load shedding. The controller is used to generate load shedding orders based on the electrical variables of the entire electrical installation, taking into account time bands, operating, or even processrelated information. The system communicates with selected

Compact NSX circuit breakers. Power to outgoing loads is cut for a given amount of time, and selected loads are restarted at more optimal times chosen by the controller.

The system is simple, with an IFM Modbus interface between the

PC or PLC and the circuit breakers. The Compact NSX circuit breakers are equipped with Breaker Status Control Module

(BSCM) input/output modules, which are hooked up to the remote control (MTc) that opens and closes the Compact NSX.

Monitor and control electrical loads in your retail shopfront

I need to be able to check the status of the oven, refrigerator and security cameras quickly and easily when I close up my shop.

I want to make sure everything is secure and avoid wasting energy.

Install KNX current sensing switch actuators connected to a touch panel to monitor loads

The touch panel shows the status of the different loads and indicates potential risks—such as the refrigerator, oven, or security system—during shop opening hours.

The system cuts power to specific loads—like an oven left on at night—thus eliminating waste. It also helps to ensure proper operation of the security system by monitoring devices like security cameras and lighting.

A KNX logic module rotates the lighting sources used at night from one night to the next for more even use of light fixtures.

The touch panel provides information on the operating hours and expected lifetime of each fixture, for more efficient maintenance and replacement.

For the user

Manage hotel energy consumption according to guestroom occupancy

My hotel’s occupancy rates fl uctuate depending on the time of year, something that is not refl ected in my energy costs. I want a system that will help me keep costs in line with occupancy and boost my hotel’s profi tability.

For the user

Integrate guestroom management into your hotel’s reservation system

Your hotel’s Property Management System (PMS) handles reservations, but it can also provide information about the status of each room: rented, rented and unoccupied, or rented and occupied. When the PMS and the guestroom management system interface, this information can be used to optimize room management and even save guest preferences for automatic customization of settings when the guest checks in.

Schneider Electric offers both guestroom management systems and complete building management systems, and delivers the expertise needed to integrate these systems into third-party

Property Management Systems like Micros Fidelio and Opera.

Information concerning functions like temperature, lighting and electricity—managed at room level—can be monitored and controlled in line with information from the Property Management

System, for instance:

• Unrented: Room is in economy mode. Room lights are turned off.

Room heating or air conditioning is automatically lowered. Window blinds and ventilation are set to maintain optimal conditions while the room is unoccupied.

• Rented and unoccupied: Room is in pre-comfort mode.

Temperature and air quality can be automatically set to a position closer to comfort mode.

• Rented and occupied: All room settings can be adjusted by the guest.

> Reduce energy use by more than

20%

> Opt for simple guestroom management (to lower heating or air conditioning while guests are away from their rooms)

for savings of

10%

; add advanced management of unrented rooms for an additional 10% savings

> Guests retain control of their environment while in their rooms for total comfort and ease of use

Reduce hotel electrical consumption and improve comfort with a full KNX system

Energy has become a major expense for my hotel. I would like to reduce costs, but not to the detriment of my guests’ comfort or my own peace of mind—my top priorities.

Install an intelligent guestroom management system to control lighting, HVAC, and blinds

This intelligent system controls lighting, HVAC, and blinds according to guest presence, ensuring maximum comfort via the following functions:

• Advanced control of all room equipment such as lighting, heating, air-conditioning, curtains, and blinds

• Management of hotel functions like do-not-disturb and make-upthe-room orders

• The capacity to communicate with other hotel systems

Energy use is managed automatically according to occupancy, resulting in reduced energy consumption. Of course, HVAC is a top consumer of energy, but so is lighting. Guests are usually only in their hotel rooms for around eight hours per day, therefore, the times when the room is unoccupied represent a major opportunity to save energy without affecting guest comfort.

The solution is based on a KNX/EIB bus system, which connects all the different sensors and actuators inside the room to form an intelligent system.

• Sensors: key card holder, presence detector, thermostat, open/ close windows

• Actuators: lighting control, air conditioning control

• A single, easy-to-use interface, from simple push buttons to user-friendly touch screens

• Automated functions provide additional energy savings and smoother operation, whithout any inconvenience for the guests

We want our new head offi ce to be as energy-effi cient as possible while delivering the level of comfort our employees need. One goal we have is to reduce operating costs and secure green certifi cation for our building.

Install a multi-technique Building

Management System (BMS) to supervise heating, cooling, air conditioning, ventilation, power, elevators, plumbing, access control, lighting, and blinds

The solution is built around a TAC Continuum™ supervision system and subsystems made up of gateways and command-control devices for different applications:

• An SMI system for window blind control

• A DALI system for lighting control

• Xenta controllers for the air conditioning system

• An access control and video surveillance system

Heating is programmed on an hourly basis and setpoints are checked to ensure that building temperature is lowered at night and raised before occupants arrive in the morning. Presence detectors plus automatic lighting shutoff functions with re-start capabilities provide further energy savings even when employees work after normal office hours.

Daylight and presence detectors are used to optimize regulation of lighting and air conditioning in each individual office. Lighting, window blind, and cold beams are managed by system scenarios such as presence, natural light, arrival (first occupant), departure (last occupant), and others.

The solution enables facilities managers to view the status of, monitor, and operate all systems throughout the building, including alarms, temperatures, faults, on/off, and more.

The TAC Continuum system offers a display detailing energy consumption throughout the building, providing the specific information needed to raise occupant awareness of energy consumption and savings.

Use available rooftop space to install and operate solar panels

I want green certifi cation for my farm.

I would like to install rooftop solar panels on one of my outbuildings, but only if it is profi table for the business.

Convert the energy generated by solar panels into alternating current and connect to the three-phase grid

The system consists of photovoltaic panels that produce between 30 kW and 50 kW of electricity by transforming solar energy into direct electric current. This “convert, connect, protect” system is built around prefabricated, interconnected panels:

• Panel strings are interconnected via junction boxes to pool the electricity generated by the photovoltaic installation

• An inverter then converts the direct current produced by the panel strings into alternating current

• Factory-assembled, pre-wired protection units ensure the installation is safe for both people and property.

For the user

> Helps businesses qualify for green certifi cation

> ROI of less than

10 years driven

by selling surplus power back to the grid (in countries where incentives are offered)

> Clear information thanks to SunEzy

inverters, which monitor both the electricity used and sold back to the grid

> Easy to upgrade to a building management system without changing the installation

South of France: farm building gets rooftop solar panels

The southern-facing rooftop of a farm outbuilding measuring just 147 square meters was the perfect location to install 105 175-watt solar panels covering a total area of 139 square meters.

Because total power was just over 18 kW, a three-phase connection to the grid was installed.

The total cost of the equipment, installation, and hook-up to the grid was

€90,000.

The installation is expected to generate 21,000 kWh per year, sold back to the grid at

€0.60 per kWh, for total annual revenue of more than €12,000.

Boost your “green” image and save with photovoltaic energy

Our company is known for environmental awareness and advanced technology. We’d like to build on that image and cut energy costs.

Given our available rooftop space, solar panels seem like a the natural choice.

Generate your own electricity with rooftop photovoltaic modules

This solution is designed for three-phase electricity production.

The photovoltaic modules are connected to the grid so you can sell surplus electricity back to the utility—usually at attractive rates—and all of the necessary devices and protective equipment are housed out of sight in a facilities room.

Schneider Electric provides:

• Pre-wired, referenced junction boxes for connection to the photovoltaic generator’s DC output

• Pre-wired, referenced DC disconnection boxes

• Dedicated DC/AC inverters synchronized with the utility grid

• AC protection for connection to the grid

An iRio remote terminal unit monitors and transmits information and tracks electricity production records. It can also be used for display and customer demonstrations, to show in real time the photovoltaic production.

For the user

> Up to

20%

savings

• With incentives and buy-back schemes, solar energy can offset your electricity bill by up to 20%

• ROI is less than

10 years, and often far less (6 to 8 years)

> A smaller environmental

footprint

• Each kWh produced shaves an average of 0.476 kg off your building’s carbon footprint

(average value in

Europe)

> A greener image

• The system gives you the data you need to demonstrate your commitment to the environment

Madagascar village gets solar energy

In early 2009, solar panels were installed in a mountain village in Madagascar. The village, which counts about 20 houses, was too remote to be connected up to the main grid. The goal was to provide 50 W for each household three hours per day— a total of 1,000 W for the village or 3 kWh per day.

According to a survey conducted after the project was completed, the local population, which helped with the work, was satisfi ed with the results. A team of two local electricians received training from

Schneider Electric

Madagascar. They did the wiring in all of the houses and now handle maintenance and repairs.
