Energy Management with energy measurement Next Generation
Energy management systems conforming to ISO 50001, EMAS (EC No. 1221/2009), DIN EN 16247-1 create transparency of energy consumption. They reveal important energy consumers and significant energy saving potentials.
The challenge of most energy management systems is the first mile : the local collection of energy and environmental data and the transfer to a central data acquisition system. Usually measuring points are widely spread e. g. in main and sub distributions, directly on machinery and equipment or even in different buildings and on different building levels.
Industry 4.0 is based on digitization and the networking of informations from existing or new sensors. These informations should be collected as easily as possible and made available for the particular application.
Our ambition for industry 4.0 is to integrate data of existing sensors and technical systems into a powerful network that combines the advantages of wireless data transfer over long distances, complete independency of intranet and internet infrastructure and maximum security.
Smart cities are trying to improve energy efficiency by reducing energy consumption and increasing energy production, for example with solar systems on public buildings. Also the use of digitization and information technology helps to control the functions of cities more efficiently. Various sensors are distributed throughout the city and can be used for a wide variety of applications. For example buses in Belgrade and Pancevo are equipped with sensors that measure air quality. In some US cities sensors measure the fillinig level of public garbage cans: only full garbage cans are targeted and emptied.
