Helping reduce boiler CO2 for a sustainable future


Dec 15, 2022

The demand for energy efficiency is accelerating. Commercial property owners are coming under increasing pressure to ensure that their buildings are smart with government directives driving facility management towards the healthy building agenda, setting out various energy reduction targets.

Transforming the traditional to smart and connected for sustainability

Sabien Technology, one of our customers, is on a mission to help commercial facility management understand their current boiler energy waste, with their M2G Boiler Load Optimisation Control.

Most boilers in standby mode naturally cool due to heat loss to the surrounding environment, this is called dry-cycling. This is bad news for the environment as its using energy to simply return the boiler to its set point.

Preventing unnecessary waste of scarce resources

The Sabien technology prevents this and can be retro-fitted to commercial boilers to monitor and analyse the boiler temperature every second. By offering their customers an insight into waste, steps can be taken to build a better future through CO2 reduction technologies.

Working with the project engineering team within Sabien we understood the need for their product to harness the power of IoT (internet of things) to connect to the cloud. This signposted us and Sabien direct to our IOT-GATE-iMX8: Industrial IoT Gateway PC product offering to meet their need.

Benefits of being smart:

  • You are working towards a green agenda
  • You are in control to reduce energy waste
  • You can make real-time data driven decisions
  • You can predict problems
  • You can reduce your administration work
  • You can comply with industry standards

To be able to offer these benefits to their customers, we worked with Sabien to explain how smart technology relies on connectivity to become the ‘brain’ of their innovation.

The M2G cloud solution is an advanced intelligent boiler load optimisation controller that optimises and visualises the efficiency of each boiler, plant room and estate locally or globally. The system allows the user real time visibility of their plant consumption and savings. It further and uniquely facilitates us the option to holistically and forensically, analyse the efficiency and performance of their plant. Allowing the client to reach a new level of energy efficiency and performance.
