The current price explosion for primary energies is a huge challenge for many companies. In the short term as well as in the long term, there is one thing that will help: saving energy.
The increased costs for gas, electricity and oil have come at an inopportune time for many companies. In addition to the pandemic and the chip crisis, the horrendous prices must now be compensated. For those who cannot switch entirely to other energy sources, the only option is to use energy more efficiently. This improves profitability and, incidentally, protects the climate.
All resources in focus
A monthly glance at the energy bill is not enough. All significant resources should be recorded transparently. In addition to electricity, gas and oil, this can also include water or other resources. If these consumption values are combined with operating data, processes can be visualized and analyzed.
Fast success with top-down principle
Saving energy should not be seen as a major project. Rather, it is targeted steps toward sustainability. To keep the project lean and efficient, it is advisable to apply the top-down principle: First, it is sufficient to collect and evaluate data at the top level. Once the largest consumers have been identified among all the properties, it is worth taking a closer look and expanding the data collection there. For a rough assessment, manual data collection can be used first. Where resource consumption is high, metering devices are installed and data analyzed. The more data is collected, the more nonconformities and potential savings are identified. Especially at the beginning, the low-hanging-fruits can be picked quickly.
In order to achieve quick results, no time should be wasted on lengthy offer phases or expensive purchases. In the AnyViz Cloud, you register within minutes and can get started immediately. Existing hardware can also be used to connect to the cloud. This means that the first results can be presented after just a few days – and without any acquisition costs.
Thanks to the subscription models, the software solution grows with the project. All features are available for as little as €25 per month. If additional data is collected or the recording is intensified, the subscription can be adjusted at any time. There are no restrictions on the number of users involved. Both internal and external experts can be assigned to the project to work together as a team.
Further benefits by the way
The data collection introduced for resource management brings some more possibilities. For example, the integrated condition monitoring can be used to alert in case of malfunctions and non-conformities via SMS, e-mail or voice call. Furthermore, dashboards and reports can also be created for operating and process data.
