Secondary Breakdown

Sub-loads that are available in businesses and that consume a high level of energy such as fridges, air conditioners, fans, and sockets.

Equipment Installation

Assembly of the equipment required to offer the services that will meet customer needs.


Units that will be installed at the facility for the users.

Power Quality:

A series of electrical parameters and limits which ensure that the end user loads or the equipment connected to the electricity grid can work properly without any significant performance loss or reduction in the service life.

HVAC Üniteleri:

Isıtma, havalandırma ve iklimlendirme, taze hava, soğutma ihtiyacı ve nem kontrolünün hepsini veya birini sağlamak için yapılarda kullanılan ekipmanlar, dağıtım ağları ve terminallerdir.

IPMVP (International Performance Measurement and Vertification Protocol):

Best practices aimed at measuring the results of energy efficiency investments, managing demands and increasing investments in renewable energy projects.

ISO 140001:

Ürünün süreç aşamasında, çevresel faktörlerin belirlenmesi ve bu faktörlerin gerekli önlemler ile kontrol altına alınarak çevreye verilen zararın en aza indirilmesi için kılavuzluk yapan bir standarttır.

ISO 14064

A standard that acts as a guide to calculate and report the corporate carbon footprint, as well as the greenhouse gas emissions caused by this.


A critical piece of equipment that automatically operates and generates electricity in case of a power cut to ensure uninterrupted power supply.

Carbon Footprint:

A measure of the environmental harm of human activities in terms of the greenhouse gas emitted, measured in the unit of carbon dioxide.


A pre-sales step taken by the contractor to identify the customer’s facility and needs on site after the preliminary exploration form to be filled in together with the customer is submitted to the contractor.

Compensation Tracking:

The process of checking reactive power balancing on the compensation panel and preventing reactive power overuse.


The ability to check the loads in a manual, scheduled or programmed manner (switch-on, switch-off, adjust set value, etc.) if there is a suitable infrastructure to do so.

Non-critical Calls:

Customer calls except for the situations in which the system is completely unusable, such as when the customers cannot receive notification services like reports, inquiries, emails and SMS messages or when there are software-related errors on the interface or background with regard to data collection.

Critical(Urgent) Calls:

Customer calls received when the customer cannot connect to the services offered or when part of the services comes to a stop.

Preliminary Exploration Form:

A form that contains information about customer needs, specifications of the facility and details of the customer’s contact person.

Platform Commissioning:

Commissioning the software and interfaces through which the customer can view the services they purchased, on a computer or mobile phone.

Platform/ Application:

Software that ensures transmission of real-time data through the system integrated into computers or mobile devices.

Reactive Power Consumption:

Reactive power is the power drawn together with active energy to ensure the proper operation of the equipment that consumes power affiliated with the system. It is temporarily stored in the back and forth electric or magnetic field form due to the capacitive and inductive components.

Reactive Power Fine:

The fine issued on the electricity bill when the reactive power level exceeds a certain point.

Service Administrator:

Contact person with more authority to whom the customer can reach for services such as user creation and identification processes, as well as for technical support and maintenance procedures.

UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply):

A unit which protects systems that are supplied with electrical energy against voltage fluctuations such as breakdowns, spikes, sudden changes or harmonics on the grid, and which generates energy in case of a power cut to ensure continuity of the system.


A system that controls hardware and provides data such as consumption data via web or mobile applications.

Load Control:

The ability that is provided as part of the control module to check loads such as sockets and air conditioners remotely or from a single point.
