“A powerful tool”
This CEM Application allows energy management professionals to monitor and control energy use in real time across hundreds of facilities. It connects directly to networked meters for a wide range of energy and resource types – including power, process water, chilled water, natural gas, air and steam – and through a variety of industrial controllers. The CEM can supply information from hundreds of facilities immediately in granular detail, enabling energy to be effectively managed on an enterprise-wide basis.
One judge noted, “Real time monitoring of significant building loads across a portfolio of buildings is a powerful tool for both the energy manager and facilities/ maintenance manager. The ability to see and interpret energy spikes and increases in consumption as it happens can help identify large energy use spikes and help change operational processes in support of both cost and environmental benefit.”
The judges feel that there are significant capabilities that this system can provide, with one commenting that, “Invensys Operations Management Wonderware should be admired for building a ground-up application to manage and optimize energy use in industrial environments.”
According to Invensys, a major soft drink bottler using the CEM as a foundational platform for real-time energy management was able to reach a 20 percent reduction in energy use in one year through improved visibility into energy usage and improved tracking of the results of energy improvement activities. This could indicate an opportunity for significant savings by other companies implementing Invensys CEM.
