Case study
Optimizing energy efficiency in Angola:

Reducing diesel dependency via strategic battery replacement

Ice Cream On Countertop

Background

 

A Luanda-based ice cream facility faced rising operational costs due to inefficient energy usage, largely attributed to underperforming batteries and increased diesel generator reliance.

 

 

Objective

 

enee.io aimed to enhance energy efficiency by installing its battery monitoring system, targeting battery performance improvement and reducing diesel dependency.

 

Methodology

 

Easy-to-install battery monitors were installed to track individual voltages and temperatures over 48 hours, while also monitoring diesel generator usage.

 

 

Findings

 

Analysis through enee.io’s automated algorithms revealed an average battery voltage of 1.92vpc, with some batteries dropping to 1.66vpc, 14% below average. Two monitors quickly identified these underperforming batteries on the enee.io reporting software, prompting immediate action. An automated alert was sent to the facility manager with details of the findings. 

 

 

Action Taken

 

A technician was dispatched and utilized the eApp to pinpoint and replace the 2 faulty batteries promptly.

 

Results

Within a week post-intervention, diesel generator usage decreased by 10%, showcasing improved battery performance and reduced energy consumption.

 

Conclusion

enee.io's intervention averted escalating energy costs, optimizing battery efficiency, and minimizing diesel reliance, underscoring the effectiveness of our monitoring solutions.
