Energy Management Hub

Energy is one of the highest cost for any business – this means that the monitoring of both energy and water is a critical component of your business’s sites. ESB’s Energy Management Hub monitors all energy and water usage in your buildings and enables ESB’s team of experts to come up with solutions to control and reduce it.

This analysis of your energy data can enable large financial and carbon emissions savings. This can be realised through on the spot changes to your energy systems or through the implementation of larger energy savings projects which reap even bigger savings.

We offer

  • Management of the energy systems of a wide range buildings from retail, airports, commercial buildings to manufacturing and hotel and leisure locations.
  • Monitoring of different types of energy systems across lighting, heating, refrigeration and cooling systems and production or manufacturing combined heat and power, solar and geothermal.
  • Monitoring across different energy types such as electricity, gas and renewables such as biomass, combined heat and power, solar and geothermal.

 Our Approach


To gain an understanding of the energy usage we apply measuring and tracking systems in real-time and highlight future energy saving opportunities with some well-placed meters across your building

Monitor and Analyse

These measurements are provided to our team of energy analysts over the cloud with real-time information on how much and how efficiently energy is being used. They can optimise systems in real-time to highlight faults or anomalies to make adjustments on the spot.


We provide energy insights based on our expert analysis and knowledge of similar buildings. We highlight and recommend potential long-term improvements, energy saving projects and efficiency measures to reduce energy.

How we are implementing the Energy Management Hub with Customers

CHQ Building - Shedding light on a Dublin Icon

Home to retail and event spaces, restaurants, a museum and Dogpatch labs, CHQ is one of the Dublin Dockland’s most iconic buildings.

The Results:

Lighting load reduced by 60%
Reduced overall energy costs

Pre Installation:

Smart Energy Services use the ABB/Cylon Active Energy Manager (AEM) cloud software as their preferred energy monitoring system. However, if there is already a different monitoring system or software installed, our team has the capability to perform analytics on different systems with other customers that have different systems installed. We also utilise fast parallel databases and BI tools that are not energy monitoring system specific. Talk to us about your specific needs.

Electricity and gas bills offer a single aggregated view of energy consumption for a business site. In order for an in depth analysis to be conducted, a cost-effective number of submeters are needed on individual large loads to provide energy insights to identify where you are using excessive energy. For example, lighting, mechanical, heating and ventilation, refrigeration are all affected by different external factors. Submetering offers an ability to view data at a 15-minute or faster interval level where ESB can then set daily targets and alarms for when assets are not performing optimally.

This is dependent on the complexity of the meter install project and the number of meters required for each site. Most meter installs are complete in a few days.

Premises need to be audited to establish the large variable and controllable loads that impact energy efficiency, and how cost effective it is to individually meter those loads.

A strong mobile signal is preferable to give consistent data. So long as you can make and receive calls with reliability, it should be suitable. Alternatively, the metering data can go on the customers LAN from which we can work the IT protocols to pick it up.

Yes, ESB can provide this service to anyone regardless of their current energy supplier.

Post Installation:

Yes, ESB can provide this service to anyone regardless of their current energy supplier.

The first step for ESB is to collect baseline data and consumption patterns to understand the sites energy performance. Once a baseline has been produced and there is a clear understanding of the sites operation, we can then start recommending energy saving opportunities. This can take several weeks.
