Save money on your heating bills with Minibems
A holistic control and monitoring platform, Minibems can deliver significant energy and carbon reductions in a complex heat network environment. Minibems is a building energy management system that monitors and controls your heat network to reduce cost, improve efficiency and increase ease of management – perfect for those responsible for managing buildings and networks with high heat loads.
How do we achieve a 25%* energy saving
Minibems has been shown to achieve a 25%* built in energy-saving across the entire heat network.
Efficiency is achieved through weather compensated variable temperature control of the entire heat network. Minibems dynamically reduces the heat network’s operating flow and return temperatures, working to meet actual demand rather than operating the whole system at constant temperatures all year round.
Minibems sequences heat generating according to the overall requirements of the heat network, as well as each appliance’s ideal operating environment.
* Actual energy savings are site and system specific.
Endorsed by experts
Our award-wining Minibems product provides unrivalled control and monitoring functionality.
Minibems technology has been supported by energy experts from the private and public sectors.
The product of several years of intense research and development, Minibems has received over £600,000 of funding from the Department of Energy & Climate Change, Innovate UK and Shell.
Minibems was also crowned Regional Finalist at the Shell Springboard Awards 2016.
Minibems – the environment
Minibems is a cloud-based platform that allows the configuration of software modules to hardware controllers. The environment comprises manufactured products, hardware controllers, devices, Minibems controllers and user interfaces.
Minibems user interface
Minibems uses state-of-the-art controls which can be managed remotely anywhere there is an internet connection. This enables residents to monitor their own energy usage; helps service engineers to diagnose faults without the need to visit site; monitor heating and hot water usage remotely; and gives portfolio managers a single point of data access for all sites under their supervision.
Hardware controllers are easy-to-configure apps that plug in to key points on the heat network, providing remote access to diagnostics and real-world performance data.
