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.
The Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority (EECA) has recently installed a Quasar energy management system in their Wellington offices, to demonstrate the value of monitoring energy use. The system features an energy monitoring display using PowerLogic ION Enterprise software, which gathers, analyses, stores and displays all energy data in a user-friendly format.
The display provides an easy, cost-effective way of tracking energy use in the offices and saves on administrative costs as no manual meter reading is involved. It has also been tailored to allow EECA to compare energy use between its two different office floors.
Mike Underhill, Chief Executive, says the system allows EECA to identify opportunities to refine existing energy saving measures and demonstrate the potential for improving energy use in an office environment.
“The energy monitoring display has enabled EECA to identify a series of small improvements that combined add-up to a noticeable saving year on year.
The project also provides a valuable demonstration model that can be viewed by commercial building owners or tenants.”
Anyone interested in viewing the system should contact Senior Relationship Manager Mike Bourke at EECA, email email@example.com or phone (04) 470 2227.

Realtime Load Monitoring
Realtime monitoring of Peak Load by Northpower’s ION7700 and ION7650 meters became hot news in the Northern Advocate newspaper following a recent cold snap. Mike Hayes, Commercial Manager - Network of Northpower reports that the cold weather event imposed a peak load on Northpower’s network, and that the data from their ION meters enabled them to control peak demand and keep a close watch on events as they progressed during the day.
Quasar’s Unique Solution
Quasar supplied ION meters and an ION Enterprise Energy Monitoring system in 2008 which it supports remotely. This ensures that Northpower always has reliable, real-time and historical network information readily at hand.
