Abstract [en]

The projections are clear: by 2050, global energy demand expected to double. We know that the energy plants will not be sufficient to meet demand, or to compensate the decrease of fossil energy. Meanwhile, CO2 emissions must be halved to limit global warming. To resolve this dilemma, the only way is to implement energy efficiency solutions that can do it better and with fewer resources. In scientific terms, energy efficiency is the ratio of the energy consumed on the energy produced. Energy efficiency has become one of the first challenges of public policies; it aims to bring all economic sectors, companies and individuals to use less energy while controlling it. It is in this issue that Schneider Electric is trying to develop its services.

The study focused specifically on the development of distance energetic analysis tools. The first part focuses on the development of relevant counting plans. More or less detailed they would study at distance behavior and performance of a building as a whole and across its various facilities. To ensure efficiency, the work has to be done by finding the right balance between investment and relevant measurement points.

In the second part data have been analysed through a different point of view. Why not try to represent the energy behavior of a building in a mathematical way, using simple functions. So once this reference has been built it becomes easy to monitor and control any drifts of the system.

Many tools can still be developed to improve this distant observation. The idea is to bring together all these data into a global energy management tool and make this one as independent as possible in both energy and cost-saving concerns.
