At the Schneider Electric 2021 Digital Power Leadership Summit, we presented a case study on how we had helped Argosy implement an energy management system to support their sustainability goals. The summit was attended by Schneider Electric EcoXpert Critical Power and Substation Automation Masters from across the globe, a number of which also presented case studies.
We’re delighted to announce that we won the Partner of Distinction Award for this work with Argosy. It’s always lovely to receive recognition for our work so a big congratulations to our team for this and in particular Richard, Arneil and Olivier who have been responsible for this project and presenting the case study.
If you'd like to read more about Argosy’s energy management system and how it provides them with energy consumption and efficiency data, you can read our blog post.
You can also find more information about the software we use for energy management systems here and power metering hardware here.
Produce the data you need for regulatory reporting after an event with Rapid Capture & Control, now available in two versions and with new features.

A huge congrats to Peter, Saatyesh, Nathan and the team at Argosy, whose property at 82 Wyndham Street has become the first building in New Zealand to receive carbonzero certification (awarded by Toitū Envirocare and NZGBC). This is a fantastic achievement and adds to the great results they have already achieved at 82 Wyndham Street which also has a 5.5 NABERSNZ rating and a 5 Green Star rating.
We’re proud to have provided Argosy’s energy management system which they use to monitor and record energy usage, and provides the reporting they need to help them verify their energy savings. Argosy have implemented their energy management system across nine of their properties, including 82 Wyndham Street, with more properties in the process of being added.
“Argosy are committed to reducing our energy and carbon emissions footprint 30% over the next 10 years. Using the Quasar energy management system, we’ve been able to accurately track electricity usage throughout 82 Wyndham Street and use the data for our NABERSNZ and Toitū carbon emissions reporting certifications. The customisable reports feature allows us to capture only the information required for a specific rating or investigation without being bogged down by excessive data which saves us and our sustainability partners a lot of time.”

Congrats again Argosy!
We’re excited to announce the release of the Quasar Portable Meter.
When you need to quickly collect data for decision making or to find power quality issues, a portable meter is a cost-effective solution.
Our portable meters gather power and energy data including high-speed transients that are often hard to capture and provide you with real-time data from your system.
How do I access the data collected?
Your data is sent to Power Monitoring Expert (PME) software that is hosted by us and has a variety of dashboards and reports that allow you to view your data and see trends, issues, or areas to investigate more easily.
We also give you a training session at the start of your hire period, where we teach you how to access and interpret your data in PME.
The portable meter is simple and quick to install, and although this does need to be done by a licenced electrician, as soon as they have connected the meter and contacted us to verify this, data will start to be logged.
Congratulations to Arneil who is our new Senior Application Engineer in the Client Services team.
As Senior Application Engineer, Arneil is now the main point of contact for our support customers with enquiries and will also work as part of Client Services to deliver customer training and other client services offers. Arneil is also our Product Specialist and is the lead connection between Quasar and our suppliers, maintaining relationships, documentation, and news.
Wow what a year... We can't do a write up of 2020 without talking about the impact COVID-19 has had across the world. We appreciate how fortunate we are to live in New Zealand and to be able to continue our lives with minimal disruption. We were also fortunate that during New Zealand’s lockdown, our team was able to continue working, albeit from home, as much of our work is done remotely.
The Quasar team has configured and implemented an energy management system for Argosy, one of New Zealand’s leading listed property companies. The energy management system provides energy consumption and efficiency data across Argosy's commercial property portfolio and is being rolled out across Argosy’s properties in stages with the first stage recently being handed over.
Thank you for your support in 2020.
This year, our office officially closes for the Christmas break at 4pm on Tuesday 22nd December and we reopen at 830am on Monday 11th January.
We’re thrilled to welcome Andrea Baldin to the Quasar team, as our Industrial Programmer. Andrea is responsible for supporting and enhancing our existing range of software solutions including our dedicated load control application, Quasar Control, and our suite of add-on modules for PME. He will also be responsible for continuing to develop new complementary solutions for our customers and market, as well as overseeing the development of our project engineers to expand their database and programming skills.
With the COVID-19 alert levels in New Zealand changing, we wanted to give an update on our operations.
We’re excited to welcome the newest member of the Quasar team, Leanne Chapman, who joins us as our Finance and Operations Manager. Leanne has a wealth of experience in accounting and operations and is responsible for overseeing Quasar’s day-to-day finance and operations activities and performing financial analysis, reporting and management activities. Leanne says, "I am thrilled have joined the Quasar team and to work alongside such committed and collaborative people!"
With the alert level in New Zealand moving to Level 2, we will be returning to our office on Thursday 14th May.
We’ll be back at our desks and available via our usual contact methods - email, mobile and direct dial numbers plus via video calls. We’ll also be available via the main Quasar phone number.
With the alert level in New Zealand moving to Level 3 next week, we wanted to reiterate that our team continue to work as usual and are all available as we work from home.
