Monitoring Vitality Consumption on the Cisco Retailer

This yr at Cisco Reside EMEA in Amsterdam, the Cisco Retailer started a brand new initiative to proceed selling sustainability in our each day operations. The facility for the know-how deployed at our journey retailer was routed by means of twelve Meraki MT40s (good energy controllers that may monitor and remotely management energy). With our gadgets operating 24/7, we baselined the shop’s energy consumption all through the occasion with the assistance of CAE Labs’ WiserWatts: our whole vitality consumption for the present was 222.01 kWh. WiserWatts displays our Meraki gadgets’ energy consumption and offers power-saving, energy-efficient suggestions. Subsequent yr, we’ll schedule our energy to check vitality and price financial savings to actively cut back our carbon footprint. Comparable baselining and consequent energy scheduling will likely be performed at Cisco Reside International beginning this June.

We equally baselined our energy consumption at our San Jose retailer, with the entire energy consumption for 15 screens operating 24/7 over one week popping out to 429.72 kWh. With the assistance of CAE Labs, we scheduled the shop’s entry factors and switches to activate and off over PoE (Energy over Ethernet), and screens had been routed by means of Meraki MT40s. We started shutting off the facility throughout off-hours in San Jose, solely permitting screens to stay ‘on’ for 12 hours a day, Monday by means of Friday: this resulted in our energy consumption over one week decreasing to 154.87 kWh, a 274.85 kWh distinction!

SJC Energy Consumption Savings (kWh)

In comparison with the baseline week, scheduling energy shut offs throughout off-hours additionally resulted in vitality prices decreasing from $64.46 USD to $23.23, a $41.23 distinction (assuming $0.15/kWh in the USA).

SJC Cost Savings

As one of many Cisco Retailer’s six core pillars is Sustainability, we closely prioritize decreasing our carbon emissions. Our scheduled energy shut offs additionally resulted in a discount of our greenhouse fuel emissions (GHG emissions) from 204.96 kg CO2to 74 kg CO2e, a 130.96 kg CO2e distinction.

SJC GHG Emission Savings

The Cisco Retailer plans to frequently monitor our vitality, value, and GHG financial savings with this new initiative, and month-to-month updates will likely be printed on our Cisco Retailer Tech Lab SharePoint web page (Cisco workers: log in through SSO to view).
