Elster launches energy management software platform
Enacto guides and assists energy managers in detecting and analyzing energy waste and suggests corrective actions reducing the loss of achieved savings
Elster EnergyICT announced the launch of Enacto, an energy monitoring and management platform.
The device enables all staff across commercial and retail businesses to take control of energy management thus maximizing and maintaining their current energy savings.
Enacto guides and assists energy managers in detecting and analyzing energy waste and suggests corrective actions reducing the loss of achieved savings.
The program also supports accessing energy data from anywhere at any time, empowering staff to become the energy manager at their own site or store.
The energy manager can also compare energy efficiency against multiple normalization parameters such as the store size or outside temperature. Factoring out the impact of such as unusual weather can enable an accurate view of energy efficiency savings.
Enacto provides instant access to real time data for local store managers, or any member of staff needing visibility of energy consumption. This allows immediate assessment of store, department or asset efficiency and validate where improvements can be made to save energy and money.
Elster EnergyICT's Actionable Energy Intelligence solution features a near real-time dashboard that consolidates information from building management and asset control systems. Providing valuable insights into energy usage, allowing the user to quickly determine the reason for a change in their energy consumption from refrigeration to lighting control, Enacto can translate this information into how much it has cost the business.
Enacto has the ability to identify a defect and if maintenance is required, for example if a freezer's energy consumption has gone up due to an electrical fault, Enacto can reveal insights into asset lifecycle as well as giving visibility to energy efficiency.
