Because energy is among the largest operating costs in a manufacturing plant, improving energy efficiency can also improve profitability significantly. Monitoring energy consumption and transforming energy data into relevant context is the foundation of effectively optimized energy consumption.
Energy Performance is a complete solution that converts data from disparate sources into actionable information, empowering manufacturers to reduce energy costs, monitor power quality, and improve equipment performance. Its modular design allows companies to get started quickly to meet immediate needs, and the scalable solution can be expanded easily to meet evolving energy management needs.
Energy Performance enables data aggregation through integrating production and energy data with a full range of smart meters, optimizing energy consumption and reducing unplanned downtime through asset reliability. Energy Performance provides a comprehensive view of energy cost allocation, demand and power factor management, capacity management, power quality awareness, and electrical and mitigation equipment status.
Energy Performance comes equipped with a pre-defined intelligence model that fits the batch manufacturing environment. This reduces engineering time in developing the model, enabling fast and easy deployment. It also enables backfilling of data.
Energy Performance enables monitoring of power network quality in real time. When it finds an abnormal power operation, it generates notifications and alerts. This supports the facility or maintenance team in identifying root causes — from the electrical source to production equipment — and in rectifying problems before any sensitive electrical equipment is damaged.
Standard reports provide insights into process energy consumption:
Proven solution, proven results
Pre-defined reports and configurable dashboards provide the energy information visibility in context with plant operations, delivering actionable insights to all stakeholders. By correlating energy data to production operations, users are empowered to allocate energy consumption across manufactured goods, production lines, operation shifts, operation crew, production activities, departments and processes more accurately, enabling identification of critical energy efficiency gaps for optimization. This information can also be used to document and baseline projects for energy use reduction, operational efficiency improvements, becoming an essential part of the enterprise’s continuous improvement programs.
Energy Performance combines powerful data acquisition and analysis technology with easy-to-use software interfaces, simplifying energy management.
