PLANO, TX, Nov. 5, 2009 -- Invensys Operations Management, a global provider of technology systems, software solutions and consulting services to the process and manufacturing industries, today introduced the Wonderware® Corporate Energy Management Application. The new application enables manufacturing and industrial automation customers to easily and quickly implement an energy management program and achieve sustainability goals. Part of the company's energy portfolio, the Wonderware Corporate Energy Management Application helps clients respond better to energy consumption challenges.
The application allows users to monitor energy and detect and notify personnel of energy inefficiencies. It connects directly to meters on a network, through industrial controllers, and accepts manual entry via the company's Wonderware InTouch® HMI and IntelaTrac™ mobile solutions. The application is layered on top of the Wonderware System Platform, enabling integration with a wide range of applications, networks and I/O data sources. Application functionality includes recording consumption and demand at main and sub meters for a wide range of energy types, including power, water, chill, gas, air and steam. The application also associates production output to energy usage, providing the key performance indicators used in many sustainability programs. It can be quickly installed in a matter of days, and pre-built reports give managers, supervisors and workers new visibility and information on how energy is used within the operation.
"Energy management at the enterprise level is not only the responsibility of plant managers and engineers, it has now become the responsibility of corporate management as well," said Bill Schiel, manager of energy management solutions at Invensys Operations Management. "All departments within a company consume energy and add cost to a product or service, so all must be involved in developing an energy management strategy that can be quickly implemented to benefit the entire organization's bottom line."
With this Wonderware application, companies are able to create a variety of energy consumption web reports based on time period, department, cost center and operational events. Real-time views of energy consumption are provided by Wonderware InTouch HMI, offering an overview of the real-time state of energy usage. With the Wonderware Corporate Energy Management Application, organizations can quickly meet business initiatives for energy reductions and resource management to achieve long-term sustainable results.
Representatives from Invensys Operations Management will display and demonstrate the new application during the company's OpsManage'09 Conference taking place in Anaheim, Calif., November 3 to 5, 2009.
