The industrial sector of the U.S. economy consumes almost one-third of all the energy that is used on an annual basis. Industrial facilities are driven by the need to meet production while minimizing energy-use and waste. Regardless of size, facility managers must focus on energy procurement and energy management as key drivers to remain cost-competitive on a global scale.
While energy management systems have been applied to the industrial and manufacturing sector for a number of years, more recently, the use of big data analytics has changed how facilities interact with power markets as an input to the industrial process.
The Digital Water Energy Management System (EMS) provides:
- Real-time visibility to electricity demand for submetered components. Actionable data is displayed to operators via web, mobile or SCADA
- Rules-based suggestion engine controlled by the operator, to load- shed/shift/shape during high demand events or peak-trending periods
- Interaction with power markets through load aggregation including standard demand response and customized programs
