I am sharing a collection of articles on energy management systems, case studies and news, mainly focusing on the industrial solutions (production industry, factories). Serving the interests of smart factory, Industry 4.0 and ISO50001. Selecting leading topics based on my experience as a marketeer for energy management software solutions. We are based in Central Europe, if you have any news related to this topic, please feel free to share and comment.
Our company is committed to delivering turnkey solutions complete with services designed to provide continuous improvement to our customers and integrator partners alike. Our goal with every project is to provide context-friendly, business-specific systems that can easily be integrated into the everyday tasks and operating procedures of any engineer or operator.
Our turnkey project scope ranges from design and installation to commissioning and verification of operation. Specific projects may include,
- metering and monitoring systems
- load management and capacity utilization
- energy efficiency analysis
- utility cost allocation
- utility cost sub-billing and invoicing
- load control and auto-changeover systems
Our commitment to continuous improvement has been characterized by the long term relationships we now enjoy with our growing base of customers. As a result, we have learned to associate continuous improvement with operations documentation, scheduled reviews, scalability in design, user training, and quality assurance, all with the intent to meet each user's specific requirements.
Complete Implementation of Energy and Building Supervision Systems: Data logging, improvement of energy efficiency, measurement and evaluation of quality characteristics, full-scope reports. Energy management, as a system, includes hardware (measurement instruments, protective equipment, communication devices, etc.) and software (monitoring and analyzing programs, etc.) elements.
Energy Management Software Development: In connection with energy management systems, the company has its own energy management software developed, called AVReporter. With the help of it various reports, production data and correlations can be determined, and it also helps the operation costs of establishments (electricity, gas, water, steam… utilization) to be optimized together with the quality and availability of energy resources to be improved.
First of all, let’s define what the phrase of „energy-management system” means . An energy-management system includes measurement device sub-systems with the possibility of user-intervention on failure. By utilizing such a system we are able to continuously track and analyse consumption/quality patterns , and determine low-efficiency areas quickly and easily, giving the opportunity to respond fast and efficiently. Recently the ISO 50001 standard has been released, which defines in great detail the expected structure of an energy-management system and the requirements of its installation. Installing energy-management systems is outstandingly significant for enterprises to keep their market competency , which I would explain below. For the companies its a vital factor to create their products as economically as possible . With energy-management systems we are able to recognize the inefficient areas of our production-cycle. Some examples to define these statemen
Regardless of the environment, AVRepoorter Energy Management Software can be utilized to aid the users with the required information to help them understand, how their facilities work. In the following post we will take a brief look at some of these environments, and observe how our software can give you an edge over the competitors by the power of information. Buildings (Offices, Logistic Centres, Warehouses, Shopping Centres, etc.) Implementation of load-shedding (in case of electricity and gas) Reduce peak demand and power factor penalties Monitoring of consumption and subscribed-power optimization Cost-allocation and sub-billing Building maintenance and monitoring solutions (SMS and/or e-mail alarms, alarms and events logs, keeping track of events and event change ,application of automation software) Energy Performance Certification of Buildings - A policy tool to improve energy efficiency Application of renewable energy sources
Above the features that Lite edition includes, Basic edition is provided with the following: High performance modular structure, scalable system (fast operation, efficient application of resources) Energy cost and internal cost allocation report creation (invoicing tasks - towards sub-consumers as well, implementation of cost reduction objectives) In case of manufacturer or servicing unit, exact determination of energy or consumption costs by products or by services (customized consumption reports, ABCD energy effectiveness reports, energy efficiency and cost analysis statements) Unlimited possibilities of report creation functions: KPI reports, Green House Gases reports, CO2 emission calculations, Optimization of demand power, Examination of power quality features, Statements of efficiency of the application of renewable energy sources, etc. Import data from CSV files to calculations and reports, Export results to CSV file (with Business-Intelligence module - CSV plugin)
