Technology and advanced information management systems enable real-time monitoring of various energy consumption metrics in a company. However, that information has remained in the hands of utility companies.
Why put all of this electricity consumption data to good use, to improve energy consumption management and make the electrical grid smarter? So asked Enertia, a company that provides solutions for companies to better manage their energy use. These improvements enable savings of up to 40% on energy costs, reduced maintenance costs and CO2 emissions, and greater productivity.
Enertia employs various hardware and software solutions (developed in England), including the Eniscope, an energy analyzer which is connected to the electrical grid to track consumption in real time, either from the building itself or any mobile device connected to the Internet; and LESS, an intelligent system in which low-cost lighting is combined with state-of-the-art sensors. Enertia also offers solutions for consumers, to save on air conditioning, refrigeration and the use of electric motors. All of the company’s tools are interactive: specific devices are disconnected in response to a specific parameter value (e.g. high voltage or consumption). The data can be analyzed and shared among different companies, in order to collaborate and exchange better solutions for their energy consumption management.
