Energy Audits

For many owners and operators, previous experiences with energy audits may have been disappointing, and expected subsequent benefits might not have materialized. Neelands offers three different perspectives on energy audits that will result in an appreciable return on investments.

Firstly, Neelands proposes that energy audit be not viewed as a "snapshot" of your facility, but rather as a living document that provides a strategic path towards increased energy efficiencies. Neelands can show how this is accomplished - with or without our team providing regular maintenance service.

Secondly, Neelands ensures that the audit is completed by a team consisting of field technicians, control technicians, engineers and representatives of your company. This collaborative process extracts maximum shared knowledge, unlike many audits completed only by a single consulting engineering firm.

Finally, Neelands applies the precision of its N.O.E.L. Analytics Analytics software and automation to the audit, which collects granular data on system performance. All available incentives are facilitated by Neelands and presented as part of our proposal.

The first rule of any technology used in a business is that automation applied to an efficient operation will magnify the efficiency. The second is that automation applied to an inefficient operation will only magnify the inefficiency. - Bill Gates

Controls

Neelands has placed itself close to the leading edge of control technology trends by its association with Micro Thermo Technologies and Reliable Controls. Neelands is an authorized dealer for Micro Thermo and Reliable Control products in Ontario.

Micro Thermo Leads the industry in R744 (CO2) control technology with the Full Case Controller and the Trans-critical Rack Controller, allowing food retailers to adopt lower GWP (global warming potential) refrigerants and reduce their energy consumption, while ensuring better food quality.

The MT Alliance platform controls a store's refrigeration, HVAC, lighting/energy systems, anti-sweat control and load shedding, keeping it all running efficiently. MT Alliance is a powerful tool for any food retailer.

Products by British Columbia-based Reliable Controls monitor and control the complete spectrum of digital building equipment, specializing in internet-connected green building controls. Utilizing the ASHRAE-standard BACnet protocol (Building Automation Control), the products are simple, flexible and competitively priced.

The Neelands automation team develops innovative and dependable building controls to help you operate your facility in an environmentally responsible way. The team consists of mechanical engineers, programmers, installers and service providers. We take great care in evaluating and implementing new technologies, and have earned a sterling reputation for outstanding customer service. We ensure that all elements of our Performance Lifecycle Maintenance program, Performance Analytics and Controls are integrated to deliver specific measurable key performance objectives to our customers - there is no guess work.

Neelands Operations Energy Logic (N.O.E.L)

Measurable performance; Measurable financial results; Extended lifecycles.

All of these qualities are provided in a simple web-based user dashboard called Neelands Operations Energy Logic (N.O.E.L)

Some current measuring and control systems can deliver a lot of data at a reasonable cost, but the ways that this measured data is transformed into useful information for maintenance providers and plant managers can be substandard, or even non-existent.

With the increasing pressure on the refrigeration industry to take responsibility for the low-energy efficiency of some installed systems, there is growing focus on finding better criteria for design and validation after installation.

Neelands Performance Lifecycle Maintenance provides this validation. Instantaneous measurement and logging give technicians and managers the ability to make adjustments and to determine appropriate maintenance activities. Better yet, the government authorities see the value of these tools, and provide incentives of between 50% and 100% for their implementation.

Performance Lifecycle Maintenance

Performance Lifecycle Maintenance ensures that optimum levels of both system performance and lifecycle terms are achieved for a customer's assets.

The program provides Reliability Centered Maintenance activities and reporting that delivers measureable operational and financial results to our clients. Performance Lifecycle Maintenance provides clarity to them, so they can make informed decisions about investments in their assets.

This is important to clients who are asking if their current schedule of maintenance activities is delivering measurable results. Or if they are making informed decisions about maintenance and repair expenses. Or if their current HVAC suppliers are helping them differentiate their offerings into the market to help increase sales.

These are all valid, viable questions for those with HVAC requirements. But clients can look forward to informed, documented performance information from Neelands.
