Building energy management systems: save money and carbon
Designed to reduce energy consumption, our building energy management systems (BeMS) are intelligent. All of the BeMS we design and install are entirely open source, enabling you to monitor and control virtually single devise in your building. This level of integration and control enables facility managers to create an environment where energy consumption and comfort are responsive to occupancy and movement.
Our intelligent building management systems have a fully verified energy performance guarantee. Unlike BMS installers, we deliver solutions with your energy ROI in mind.
The benefits of BeMS integration
- Intelligent building control – optimise performance of existing building systems. Link access, movement and occupancy with HVAC and lighting systems. Make your building responsive to actual use not set timers and assumed occupancy. With intelligent control you let systems interact and generate exception alarms to optimise comfort and energy reduction.
- Guaranteed savings – unlike BMS suppliers, our intelligent building solutions are designed to optimise energy use. Fully IPMVP verified, all energy and cost savings are fully verified. If you don’t achieve agreed target reductions, we’ll reimburse you.
- Better management – manage your entire building from a workstation, iPad or smart phone. Spend less time switching from system to system, making you more efficient.
- Enterprise wide control – centralise estate monitoring and control of multiple sites and automate alarm response to effectively manage estate-wide energy and building services.
- Flexible expansion – with wireless connectivity expanding building control is both low-cost and flexible. Control can be reconfigured or expanded to reflect changes quickly and without CAPEX of BMS expansion.
- Cost-effective control – installation of wireless systems provides cost-effective retrofit and expansion; no pay “per point” costs associated with BMS; and because all systems are integrated training and engineer call outs are significantly reduced.
- Interoperable System Integration – communicate across the largest range of manufacturer devices such as Denco, Daikin, Mitsubishi and Sanyo. Our systems have a driver library of >280 proprietary protocols. All manufacturer authorised benefit from optimum system integration.

You will have to make no upfront investments because projects are financed through guaranteed annual energy savings. So, if you lack the capital to finance the necessary improvements across your facility, Energy Performance Contracting (EPC) could be the ideal solution.
Projects may include:
- Updating lighting systems
- Replacing outdated HVAC equipment
- Improving performance of current energy-using equipment
- Installation of voltage optimisation, power factor correction, metering and boiler optimisation technology
- Installation of new chiller, boiler and compressor plants
- If savings don’t materialise, we pay the difference, not you.
Envido will guarantee that savings meet or exceed annual payments to cover all project costs. If the new energy systems fail to reduce costs as required, we make up the difference. Any savings above the guarantee are yours to keep.
Envido will carry out a thorough assessment of your utility operations and help you identify ways to increase your facility’s energy efficiency.
We will then work with you to implement those projects. Because projects are financed through the energy savings guaranteed by us, your risk is limited. No upfront capital cost is required, Find out about our specialist energy efficiency finance options.

We can install technology that simply clips onto the side of your boiler, eradicating dry cycling – cutting your gas bill and your carbon footprint significantly.
Advantages of boiler optimisation
- 12-20% energy and CO2 saving
- Payback – 6 months – <2 years
- Low investment threshold
- Works alongside BMS
- Simple, non-intrusive retrofit
- No annual maintenance costs or seasonal calibration
- Suitable for low-cost, quick win project in most carbon reduction plans
Boiler optimisation improves the efficiency of commercial and industrial gas, oil or LPG fired boilers, regardless of age and size. Boiler optimisation units can be transferred to replacement boilers as part of lifecycle management, meaning the benefits can continue to be realised.
What is dry cycling and boiler optimiation
All boilers no matter how modern waste heat as a consequence of standing losses or poor temperature controls. Boilers often fire unnecessarily to recover these standing losses wasting energy, this is known as boiler dry cycling. Organisations using boiler optimisation include the Wellcome Trust, Northumbria Police and Hounslow Council, the results are proven.
