‘Green’ university opts for Escot energy sub-metering system
Escot, a clip-on sub-metering system by Marshall-Tufflex Energy Management, is making easy work of monitoring the energy consumption of Manchester Metropolitan University’s (MMU) environmentally-friendly Crewe campus in a drive to better inform the facility and its students about energy usage and enable it to further reduce its carbon footprint.

As part of this initiative the university has installed 40 hi-tech Escot clip-on sub-metering units within three halls of residence at its Crewe campus. Escot provides an in-depth view of overall consumption as well as localised usage and provides an alternative to installing many meters with different circuits for heating, lighting and power. The university hopes to make the energy usage information available to students to engage them in saving energy.
To date MMU has used conventional sub-metering units at its Manchester campus however the need to install sub-meters at Crewe provided the perfect opportunity to use Escot.
As Escot is a cost-effective and efficient multi-channel sub-metering system which measures who is using what and when, it is ideal for a university environment with both individual rooms and communal facilities, which have heavy and variable consumption during term and holiday periods.
The Escot sub-metering system can be also be fitted to a sub-station to determine spare capacity on its mains feed to avoid overloading an electrical distribution system or individual circuit. It is one of a range of non-invasive systems by Marshall-Tufflex Energy Management that are easy to install and can be fixed or portable, depending upon the individual application.
