The King Edmund School | Hager Energy Monitoring

Hager’s energy monitoring solution panelboard installed in King Edmund School in Essex will provide detailed reporting and increase energy efficiency. 

Phase one of the major refurbishment involved the installation of a Hager 800A rated panelboard with meters fitted to all outgoing circuits at the school.

Leading electrical solutions and services provider, Hager, has worked with Gainsborough Electrical contractors to install an energy monitoring solution at King Edmund School in Essex that will enable detailed reporting and manage energy consumption. 
 
Phase one of the major refurbishment involved the removal of old switchgear and installation of a Hager 800A rated energy monitoring panelboard with meters fitted to all outgoing circuits at the school, which took just two weeks during the holidays to minimise disruption.


"The Hager panelboard and meters proved simple and fast to fit."

Alan Hawes, Managing Director at Gainsborough Electrical 


With the incoming cable entering through the ceiling, phase two of the installation proved even more complex. To avoid bending and stressing the cable and affecting its termination into the Panelboard, Hager supplied an engineered solution with the incomer repositioned at the top of the panelboard. 
 
The detailed metering goes beyond the requirements of Part L and is part of the school’s policy to record and manage its long term energy consumption. Providing protection and monitoring for half of the school, the 800A rated Panelboard allows for possible future expansion of the electrical load. Additionally, plans include a new IT suite and an extension of air conditioning to more rooms. 
 
Alan Hawes, managing director at Gainsborough Electrical comments: “The school has expanded rapidly over the years and outgrew its original mains switchgear. The installation was complex for a number of reasons. 
 
“The Hager panelboard and meters proved simple and fast to fit so that we could meet the school’s specification within a very narrow timeline. Phase two was even more complex and Hager were able to respond with a bespoke engineered solution.”
 
Stephen Dyson, market manager at Hager, added: “We pride ourselves on being able to respond to customer challenges and this solution was recommended and installed promptly and should have a significant impact on energy consumption and cost savings over the coming years.”
