Setting up your occupancy times

Occupancy is a key factor that drives energy consumption.

Energy savings can often be easily made by targeting when your site is unoccupied, reducing your baseload and maintaining this good practice level of consumption. Equally, highlighting your core consumption period can help you determine when in the day and what equipment or practices cause your peak consumption.

 

Core, shoulder and unoccupied

Occupancy is separated into 3 or 4 defined period types.

Core
This period represents when your building is expected to have highest consumption or when it is fully occupied.
Shoulder
When your building is partially occupied and consumption is higher than your baseload
Unoccupied
When your building is fully unoccupied and consumption should be minimal.
Pre-heat
For gas only, your pre-heat period represents the time before your building is occupied when gas consumption is required.
