Houston, TX — ISA ‘09 October 7, 2009 Today, ICONICS, a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner of the Year, and provider of Web-enabled, OPC-based, HMI/SCADA Visualization and Manufacturing Intelligence software for Microsoft Windows® operating systems, announces Energy Analytics, the latest component to the BizViz family of analytic solutions.
Energy Analytics assists companies with energy conservation efforts by offering actionable intelligence that helps users make better decisions for the future. This information will allow customers to reduce energy consumption, aggregate and summarize energy usage by location, and forecast energy costs over time. Due to the skyrocketing costs of energy, the need for such a solution has never been greater. Energy Analytics helps companies to become more “green” and reduce their overall carbon footprint through optimization of energy consumption. It also assists companies in meeting LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) standards for the operation of green buildings. Users gain insight into energy consumption patterns, correlate information using Microsoft SharePoint integrated dashboards, and “dollarize” energy usage data to optimize asset utilization.
“With organizations looking for ways to cut cost and manage sustainability operations, being able to analyze energy consumption is a win for their wallets and helps them go green,” stated Russ Agrusa, President and CEO of ICONICS. “Many companies do not know where to start or what tools to use that is why we are introducing Energy Analytics.”
Energy Analytics is built upon standard technology and has seamless integration with other ICONICS applications.
Features of this latest solution are...
Collect and summarize energy usage data using a powerful metadata concept
Offers a wide variety of charts and reports for intuitive analysis of the information
Data is normalized to achieve an accurate side-by-side cost-based analysis
Open architecture enables integration with other enterprise applications
Energy Star and LEED certification report templates
Any manufacturing plant, building or facility requiring energy monitoring and analysis are target opportunities for Energy Analytics. Energy Analytics benefits all industries, with specific opportunities in the area of government and data center facilities monitoring where energy consumption is high.
“Energy Analytics solutions address the growing demand for utilities and manufacturers to better visualize their operations and simultaneously implement their sustainability initiatives,” according to Craig Resnick, Research Director, ARC Advisory Group. “Real economic imperatives are driving utilities and manufacturers to adopt sustainable production practices, driving market demand for tools such as Energy Analytics that allow users to better understand their energy consumption by providing the ability to visualize and report the data and information that will have a most dramatic affect on profitability and asset utilization, which will result in both increased energy efficiency and reduced costs.”
