Measure and report on site CO2 and fuel savings using Firefly’s Glow RFM™
Is site energy efficiency top of your agenda?
From November Firefly is launching GLOW RFM™ for its Hybrid Power systems: a simple and easy to use cloud platform that provides reporting and management functionality to achieve energy and fuel savings.
Reduction of CO2 and NOx emissions have become a key consideration for main contractors, with around half of all the UK’s carbon emissions accounted for by the construction and related industries. Temporary power is an important contribution to the overall emissions footprint of a construction project, particularly where there is a requirement for 24hr power.
To achieve site energy efficiency, the combination of hybrid power systems alongside diesel generators provides the smart power solution. Providing significant CO2, NOx and fuel savings, hybrid power solutions offer silent overnight power to help meet the requirements under the Considerate Constructor Scheme along with helping to fulfil the UK’s emissions 2020 target.
Easy to use dashboard reports from GLOW RFM™ can demonstrate the savings from using a hybrid power system to Site Teams and the Head Office of either a Plant Hirer or Contractor. GLOW RFM™ makes managing assets simple by providing performance data via a PC, Mac, smartphone or tablet. It also allows remote field service teams to setup or configure a machine’s parameters, or fine tune and optimise efficiency as required. All Firefly power systems are backed up by a nationwide field service team.
Commenting on Firefly’s latest release, Andy Mead, Managing Director for Firefly said, “It is clear that sustainability has been and will continue to be a key agenda for the construction sector. Power is an important consideration because of the significant CO2 and fuel savings that can be achieved. However, working with the right power solution is just one element; the monitoring of this solution is also paramount. Software, such as GLOW RFM™, which is a hybrid first, provides users with the data to integrate with their own Environmental Management Systems and inform key CSR business performance indicators; while providing a complete overview of their Hybrid Fleet – anytime, anywhere.”
Firefly offers free trials of their Hybrid power systems via their Partner Network and are currently offering a free demonstration of GLOW RFM™ for anyone interested in seeing it in action, for further information visit www.fireflycleanenergy.co.uk/glowrfm/
