  • Sub-metering and Sharing

    Sub-meter readings and Sharing Solution Architecture

    One of the main sources of problems for managers of commercial, logistics and industrial condos is the sharing of power bills. This usually relies on a variety of criteria, from floor area, through headcounts, to installed load. Whatever the criteria management may choose, some condo members will inevitably be dissatisfied.



    To overcome issues of this type, ENGIE has developed and implemented individual metering systems with automated power bill sharing across several customers. ENGIE’s sub-metering and Sharing solution takes actual electrical metrics directly from the power intake cabinets of each condo unit, fully automating the process of individualized power billing. In addition, it enables managers and maintenance teams to focus on more relevant tasks.



    Some of the many benefits that a power sharing system provides to managers and condos include:

    Individual condo member metering;

    Automatic power billing directly to each condo member;

    Automatic consolidated bill for the condo manager;

    Individual access to meter data;

    Provides all consumption-related power metrics – demand, consumption and power factor;

    Enables setting up automated adjustments and controls for every area in the condo;

    Fully transparent metering;

    Easy Web-based access to the information using individual passwords;

    Automatic warning messages sent in connection with any deviation from schedule;

    Awareness of the price of the power bill before it is delivered by the concessionaire;

    Prevents maintenance problems.

    The adoption of automated solutions increasingly provides benefits to managers. In addition to the advantages mentioned above, condo managers may pursue cost-cutting alternatives by controlling load hours, adjusting power factors, and controlling demand, thereby enabling the applicable operational or administrative changes.

See who is benefiting from our solutions

“Now we’re able to effectively use all the data which the system provides for mapping alerts on unusual consumption patterns. This also offers real time management of points with potentially irregular consumption”.

Henrique Bissochi

Engineering manager of Banco Santander

“We have gained a lot in agility with such tools as remote programming via web/cell phone, consolidated reports and personalized dashboards. These are all very useful in the daily routine of the engineering and maintenance team. Another important tool is the personalized alarm system for monitoring units with above-normal energy consumption, allowing us to take immediate and decisive corrective action”.

Alexandre Medeiros

Engineering manager of C&A in Brazil

"The choice of this system was exactly because of the diversification and variety of possible reports, graphics, controls and analyzes for each and every one of the restaurants. We have also been able to separate into groups by consumption type/model, alowing the comparison, administration and precise management of electricity, water and gas consumption at our units".

Edinaldo Martins de Castro

Utilities Manager for Bloomin Brands International

“Oi sees the active management of consumption at the units as allowing the efficient use of energy and generating opportunities for reducing costs. In addition, such management allows us to evaluate the effectiveness of initiatives that are implemented for reducing consumption, accelerating the rollout of projects for other company units. The system indicated the best cost-benefit, providing modern and structured management tools for ensuring easy and agile monitoring of the data”.

Marco Antonio Vilela de Oliveira

Energy and Property Director at Oi

“We opted for Follow Energy as being a system which is already well-accepted in the market and given the recognized quality of its results. Its use allows us to get a better idea of our electric energy profile, identifying energy peaks and possible excess demands as well as serving as an indication for adjusting the capacity factor”.

Alessandro Matos

Engineering Manager of the NotreDame Intermédica Group

“We saw the need for precise measurement of electricity consumption and for making the information clear and visible to all users without the need for onsite monthly measurement inspections for verifying expenses”.

Pedro Luiz de Freitas

Infrastructure Manager at Rede Record

“We installed the energy management system at Rede Supermarket for controlling consumption, demand, capacity factor and account accuracy. After all, you can only manage what is measured and when we have all the data in real time, management becomes a lot better, avoiding unnecessary expenditures. Follow Energy is intuitive and greatly helps us calculate waste and helps individual managers to take the best decision. The idea is always to install the system with each new store opening”.

Henrique Dames

Electrical engineer responsible for electrical maintenance and energy management at Rede Supermarket

“With Follow Energy, we monitor all the electrical data, principally that which might potentially incur fines from the power distribution concessionaire. We also monitor the CICE - Internal Commission for Energy Consumption – energy consumption targets for each unit allowing us to act with immediate effect where the case arises. In effect, I can say that the system is a complete tool - after all, electricity and other utilities are costs that should be controlled”.

Renata Silva Sigg

Property Analyst for D’avó Group.

“The purpose of implementing the energy monitoring tool was to gain speed and precision in measuring data for electric energy consumption. It was well worthwhile. The monthly fee is low and compensates what we would expend in energy. In addition, prorating among tenants is now much quicker and more precise”.

José Ayres Fortes Bustamante Filho

Premises Maintenance Manager for the Centro Empresarial Castello Branco, Rio de Janeiro, RJ

“The sustainable and smart management of the condominium would not have been possible without this system. It is just not viable to control expenses, prorate and introduce a plan for reducing consumption of water and energy without it. Really we have to agree with the following statement: ‘what cannot be measured cannot be controlled”.

Emerson Melo

Property Management at Cushman & Wakefield, responsible for the management of Edifício Birmann 21 in the city of São Paulo
