“We want to improve the energy efficiency of our entire property portfolio. We are introducing a new energy-efficient technology, and we are constantly looking for new solutions alongside traditional forms.
The objective is to start on the right path right away, as a lot of renovation and new construction projects are on the way for the coming years,” says CEO of JYY Marko Huttunen.
“We are currently looking for a strategic target space for the entire entity. The first measure, according to the strategy, is the life cycle of planning of the renovation phase performed in Kortepohja Student Village in Jyväskylä.
The purpose of which is to improve energy efficiency and reduce the environmental impact from the perspective of both the life-cycle costs and of the users,” explains Jukka Akselin, Head of Energy Efficiency Services.
YH Kodit – We wanted a partner that is absolutely impartial
“We want to use our properties in a smarter way, however, without compromising on living comfort. The aim is to reduce our carbon footprint by way of optimized use of energy. We see a substantial savings potential,” says the Account Director of YH Kodit Stefan Stortz.
YH Kodit also has an alarm service at their disposal, which enables a quick response by EnerKey in case of consumption changes taking place in the measurement and in case of disruptions observed in the building technology.
“The EnerKey reporting service allows us to collect consumption data in an automated manner into one place. With the help of remote management and EnerKey services, we can monitor, control and maintain the energy consumption and the operation of the building technology of YH Kodit around the clock. The end result are euro-denominated savings,” says Roope Varkka from EnerKey.
Information from EnerKey is key to monitoring Keva’s energy efficiency
The long-term use of EnerKey SaaS enables the comprehensive utilization of the energy consumption data of Keva’s properties. In EnerKey’s consumption reporting, the energy consumption of properties is monitored regularly. The consumption is simultaneously always compared with the previous level of energy consumption.
When consumption anomalies are detected, their origin is immediately clarified. Therefore, possible inefficiencies can be addressed without delay. Without a reliable reporting system, it would not be possible to address anomalies, compare and analyze energy consumption in buildings and take the necessary corrective action in a timely manner.
The information obtained from EnerKey plays a key role in monitoring Keva’s energy efficiency. The achievement of targets is monitored through EnerKey consumption reporting and key indicators. EnerKey brings transparency through the information it produces, and enabling learning by comparing the fulfilments of different investments.
In this way, best practices can be properly utilized in all real estate properties. This further improves energy efficiency.
Fennia Properties Ltd on the path to sustainable energy management
“Energy efficiency is an essential part of sustainable real estate investment and ownership. For energy data to support decision-making at all levels of the organization, up-to-date and reliable information on the energy consumption of properties must be available.
We have created a model of continuous improvement where, after mapping the current state, we actively follow the achievement of future goals. EnerKey’s SEMS platform enables continuous improvement in energy efficiency and sustainability by clearly highlighting energy consumption data, energy costs and CO2 emissions side by side.
The new tools will also streamline energy invoice management and tenant billing processes”, states Aki Paavola, Technical Manager at Fennia Properties Ltd.
Technopolis: The ability to monitor energy consumption closely is important
“Our experience with EnerKey is long lasting. We have appreciated that EnerKey’s development has never stopped.
In the real estate sector, energy costs are remarkable, about a third of all maintenance costs. It is therefore important to be able to monitor energy consumption closely.
EnerKey is works great when you want to quickly map the total consumption. For example, to find out what are the biggest deviations. The results of the monitoring support our entire reporting process and some information is being utilized corporation wide.
Monitoring energy consumption does not only lead to economic results. With EnerKey, the organization can identify other opportunities for energy management and monitor the impact of energy efficiency measures.
Lower energy consumption results in less unwanted environmental impacts. Sustainability is important to us”, says Johanna Kivelä, Sustainability Manager, Technopolis.
Student Housing Foundation KOAS in Central Finland during the last year achieved EUR 500 000 in deferred savings in its energy consumption
Student Housing Foundation KOAS in Central Finland during the last year achieved EUR 500 000 in deferred savings in its energy consumption. In the background is the long-term work on energy management.
“Energy savings is an entity in respect of which we strive to make improvements all the time. It can be about the smallest of things, but it is continuous. The overall background is the measurement. It is difficult to save if you do not know what’s going on. Monitoring is key to saving energy. When we know what happens in the targets, energy saving is possible.
“We see the effects of the measurements in real time, and we recognize any high energy consumption due to rise in energy consumption in one place causes an alarm. We have obtained good results in the long term. Cooperation with EnerKey has gone well. Help has been available whenever it is needed”, tells the building engineer of KOAS, Satu Varstala.
Vuo-Kiinteistöpalvelut wants to help its customer properties improve energy efficiency
For this problem EnerKey reporting service was selected to offer the solution.
Vuo-Kiinteistöpalvelut Ltd offers versatile property management services. They manage approximately 150 housing companies in the eastern districts and downtown of Helsinki. They have a total of 8,000 apartments.
Kari Hiltunen, CEO of Vuo-Kiinteistöpalvelut, said that EnerKey was selected as a solution not only because of their suitable characteristics but it was also recommended to him. Jarmo Mäkinen, the deputy landlord service manager working for the company, had a positive experience of the system from his previous job.
Hiltunen is expecting the cloud based EnerKey service to facilitate the collection and reporting of measurement data and speed up the response to potential problems.
“We need the service to be flawless and efficient as well as remove all the issues related to our current system. We haven’t had previously any cohesive system in place for data measurement collection. All the data was collected manually, leaving room for all kinds of possible human errors and unreliability’s. EnerKey is also compatible with EcoStart program, which we have had going on for few years now.”
Buugi: Investment in energy efficiency generates over 30,000 euros in annual cost savings
Buugi is a sports and wellness center in Central Finland, Jyväskylä.
EnerKey has now been in active use in Buugi for over a year now. Thanks to the consumption data EnerKey SaaS generates including the comprehensive planning as well as energy efficiency measures, Buugi has been able to achieve large savings in the energy consumption of its property.
The EnerKey sustainability and energy management system has all the information you need about energy consumption and energy management easily in one place.
“Utilizing the condensing heat of the refrigeration plant and investing in energy efficiency will save us more than 30,000 euros annually in district heating costs. Hourly data from EnerKey is used to detect unnecessary consumption, among other things.
For example, we are currently investigating why the night consumption of one electrical metering point sometimes becomes very high. For example, we recently raised the ice temperature in the ice rink a bit. Finding the most optimal and energy-efficient solution sometimes requires such testing”, says Mikko Ahonen, partner and board member at Buugi.
