K2n's energy monitoring and optimisation software chosen as the automatic monitoring and feedback system for the prestigious iSERVcmb EU project.
K2n Energy Reporting & Optimisation System (EROS)

K2n Ltd. have produced a powerful cloud based Energy Reporting & Optimisation System that uses a radically different approach to existing meter-based energy monitoring systems.

We are able to provide bespoke profiles for your Building and Systems (HVAC, Lighting & Small Power). This is made possible by our 7,000+ benchmarks which are produced at the component, space and activity level. This level of analysis allows K2n to: provde reports down to the level of a space and component on a sub-hourly basis as well as the ability to optimise Buildings and Systems by automatically highlighting Energy Conservative Opportunities.

Since using the principles underpinning the iSERVcmb process, McKenzie House has reduced its total annual electricity use by 43%!

Home of iSERVcmb database: Inspection of HVAC Systems through continuous monitoring and benchmarking

The iSERVcmb project showed the practical operation and benefits of an automatic monitoring and feedback system (as now allowed for in the recast EPBD) applied to Heating, Ventilation and Air-Conditioning (HVAC) systems in EU Member States (MS).

It is an important project as previous work had indicated real savings of up to 60% were achievable in individual HVAC systems through the iSERVcmb project approach. From applying the approach to 330 buildings across 20 EU MS, average total building electrical annual energy savings of ~9% were achieved.

The project Partners and Steering Group were the two main professional bodies for HVAC systems in Europe (CIBSE and REHVA), eight universities across Europe, HVAC component and filter manufacturers, Maintenance and Inspection Engineers, and property developers.

The project used K2n's Energy Reporting & Optimisation System for the configuration and had over 2800 live HVAC systems from around Europe running on the system.

The project is now complete and the full findings can be downloaded from the link alongside or 

K2n continue to refine and offer the asset description spreadsheet initially developed for iSERVcmb and the latest version of this can be downloaded here.  If you wish to obtain a benchmark for a building or system entered into this spreadsheet please contact K2n at . If you wish to utilise the whole data collection and reporting structure developed to support and report on the iSERVcmb buildings and their operational data, then again please contact
