India over to Prepaid Meters - Elmeasure

Why India is moving towards Prepaid Meters?

Electricity is always a hot topic & you can always witness shocking results if you are looking at the data of India. Now, It is accompanied by other 2 major utilities, gas & water as well.

Especially now, India is in the extreme water-scarce situation & also there is no point in discussing the demand vs supply ratio of both electricity & gas, which are based on non-renewable natural resources.

In such an uninvited (probably) conditions, how do the government manage a country with 1.3 billion people?

It is a difficult situation both to control the needs & also to satisfy. This also leads to various malpractices within the industry like quality, tampering, theft, etc. that ultimately damages the economy and breaks the trust between government & people.

Until then, there is this smart innovation came into the picture that exactly needed for a country & situation like this. The government is also made a smart move towards making it mandatory, that is when India over to #PrepaidMeter.

What is a Prepaid Meter?

The energy meter that allows customers to pay for utilities in advance is a prepaid meter. Similar to our prepaid sim card used in mobile phones where the customer can call until the amount is used after which the connection is unavailable.

ISI approved Prepaid Meters
Elmeasure’s ISI accredited Prepaid Meters

Prepayment or prepaid meter is a single device that can be used for integrated monitoring of electricity, gas & water consumption. The prepaid meter allows you to pay in advance for electricity to be on the safer side and ensures you don’t have to pay penalty & spend the dark nights.

How are things till date with utilities?

In the past, consumers had no option to view the real-time data of how much electricity has been used & had no control over the budgeting. While, the prepaid meters enables the customer to budget their consumption in advance, detect theft /tampering and payment of energy bills, preventing tenant disputes, further eliminate manual errors while taking energy meter readings.

The challenges generally observed in the conventional metering system were higher tenant dispute & longer payment period, unavailability of alarm on failure, historical data, real-time reporting, accuracy, aggregated meter location, inability to make forecast & control meter remotely also it was found that longer wiring leads to transmission losses.

Prepaid Meters within your reach: Highly integrable, configurable, and a versatile solution.

Prepaid is a plan that deducts usage charges and any fixed charges from account balance each day. These prepayment meters have given the customer the control to budget electricity expenses & monitor usage anytime, protect equipment against overload/over voltage, notifications and alerts via SMS/ Email when recharge balance is low, to keep records of recharge & consumption history for easy support & follow-ups & much more available on our fingertips using the mobile app.

Solution Architecture of Prepaid Meters to ELNet Software.

Elmeasure is one of the leading manufacturers of energy metering products and solutions while designing products on par with customer requirements. We have designed microcontroller based contactless prepaid energy meter that provides an effective solution to the electrical service providers.

Prepayment meter allows you to budget and stay in control of your utility consumption and, prevent unexpected bills. Prepayment meter can monitor and report real-time data to track energy consumption for precise billing. This device can access and report critical information, alerts via emails or pop-ups when meter tampering occurs. One of the smart features of prepayment meter is to monitor the meter usage and configure firmware at any time from the mobile app. Further has the ability to monitor grouped meters, integrate gas & water meter.

Energy Saving to kill hunger - Elmeasure

For every 2 Units of Electricity Saved, A man (Or) [A Woman + A Kid] can be fed a whole day.

I call this a hypothesis because it is just the dogma of an individual after seeing the problems and correlating with some other equivalent theory and the industry his company works for, to compliment in their own style.

This is a hypothesis, which can cause chaos if it’s considered just as another theory…So, we still have the chance to be not included in /concluded as THE NEXT CHAPTER IN CHAOS THEORY!

This is all about energy and its consumption. As we discuss its usage we speak a lot about its wastage too, which has the major role!

THE SUSPICIOUS STORY

Energy is being transformed from one state to other, the energy which is not utilized or energy utilized more than required is, and also the unrecognized/unknown transformed state of energy is considered Energy wasted.

In chaos theory, “The Butterfly Effect” is the sensitive dependence on initial conditions in which a small change in one state of a deterministic nonlinear system can result in large differences in a later state.

In more apt to the situation, it can be rewritten as simple as,

Your small & simple unnoticed actions here are the reason for huge reactions/chaos somewhere else later.

The butterfly has a very major role in creating natural calamities like tornados, cyclones, hurricanes because of their wing flap which cause a small pressure gap in the surrounding air molecules here, that create a huge damage somewhere later.

“Human Beings are as beautiful & innocent as Butterflies, but not as dumb”.Butterflies don’t know what they are causing, but being the most intelligent species on the earth, I believe our cognition system is far better than theirs. So we can understand how and what damage we are creating, at least we can share it if someone doesn’t know!

Advertisement

This is the stimulus for writing this to all human beings over there, The Energy we wasted here, is somewhere affecting the lives of other people in a very painful way! The name “The human effect” is coined after finding the similarities in the concept of “the Butterfly effect”!

So let me tell you, how much damage we are causing to the whole economy of our country & how injustice we are to the poor without our notice. Allow me to use a situation of a middle class family in India.

THE MATHEMATICAL MYSTERY

A (1) Fan that consumes 100 watts when runs for 24 hrs. a day, the electric power would be Approximately 72 UNITS/MONTH (Average Data)

(Let’s make it equal for one day on both sides. i.e., fan rotated for the whole day & the units spent for 1 day)

1*100*24 (Watt Hr) = 72 units/month = 72 /30 (Avg. days of a month)

= 2.4 units /day

                                      2400 watt hr = 2.4 units

                                                1 UNIT = 1000 WATT Hr ……. (1)

                                                [This is how Electricity is measured, Isn’t it?]

The energy transforms into different forms. So, why not we convert its equivalent amount to what is required for the survival of human beings. This is where the hypothesis has started. (i.e., kilowatt-hour into Calories)

1 WATT Hr = 3600 Joules……. (2)

                                                   But, 4.184 k Joules = 1 Large Cal

                                  so,  1 Joule = 1/4184 = 0.000239 Large Calories ……. (3)

                              Now, From (2) & (3)

                                    1 WATT Hr. = (3600* 0.000239) Large Calories

                                     1 Watt Hr = 0.86042065 Large Calories ……. (4)

                                and, From (1) & (4)

1 UNIT = 1 Kilo Watt Hour = 1000 * 0.86042065 Large Calories.

1 UNIT ~ 860.402 Large Calories

So, 1 unit of electricity is equivalent to 860.402 large calories

Advertisement
A LITTLE HISTORY:

Harvard Health Publications suggests, The SAFE INTAKE for women is at least 1,200 calories daily and men get a minimum of 1,500 calories a day.

1 Unit of Energy = 860.402/1200 = 0.717 FEMALE ADULTS

                       = 860.402 / 1500 = 0.573 MALE ADULTS

2 UNITS of ELECTRICITY can Serve ~ [1 WOMAN & 1 kid] (or)1 MAN for a day.

United State’s Energy.Gov (http://www.energy.gov/) says, “This (Electricity) is just 34% of the all forms of energy (including electricity, gas, and fuel) what we use daily and you can save about 30% on your energy bill while reducing environmental emissions”. (http://energy.gov/energysaver/tips-heating-and-cooling)

The following table gives the wattage and daily usage time of typical household appliances owned by a middle-class family in India on an AVERAGE (Credits: http://achahome.com/)

Total consumption Per day = 7 units.

Total consumption Per month = 30* 7 = 210 units.

If we can be able to save 30% of it, which for each house can be estimated as = 30*210/100 = 63 UNITS

This can at least serve 45 WOMEN (or) 36 MEN (or) 100 children per month.

Annually, each house hold can save a lot of energy equivalent to serve up to 500 people. In case if it is a factory /industry/shopping mall, the number is bigger.

If the wastage could not be stopped, someone has to sacrifice their life. It was Nature previously which is abundant, but mankind is not kind enough to save nature for future, so the sacrifice has to be made by mankind ultimately! NATURE HAS NO FUTURE! If at all, it has to be called “Artificial Nature” may be!

There is the rising demand for energy on one side and diminishing natural resources on the other, which will now lead to intolerance of Nature.

BIG FAT COMPLEMENTARY:

The complementary & important information is, the extra fat/cholesterol accumulated in our body is a form of energy and that was snatched from other’s food. Exercise to let go of the energy being stuck wasted in you! This will keep you healthy too!

This is just wastage of Electricity as a form of energy, if we relate the wastage of Gas, petroleum, water, etc. as the forms of energy too, the guilt will kill us.

I find this is the way to explain a common man too. Every time you waste energy, someone is dying of hunger & you are the murderer. Next, it may be you, one of your family member, your friend or other human beings.

So, is it just a murder? Isn’t that suicide???

AND, THE COMPULSORY:

New York’s (REV) Reforming the Energy Vision is too far from. India’s Energy vision is still at “understanding the importance of Energy”. Long way to go …

But, that doesn’t mean we are technically backward class. We only have a section of people who are economically backward! The only problem is the information and communication about the state-of-art technologies being developed in India to control and manage energies at homes, shopping malls, factories, industries, apartments, etc.

In my knowledge, our company Elmeasure India Pvt. Ltd., one of the leading providers of such products & Solutions. It’s prepaid energy meterenergy management solutions, water management system, iACCL (intelligent Automatic Changeover with current limiter)Lighting Management System & other IoT based solutions are tailor-made to measure, control and save Energy.

Each Household can use current limiting prepaid energy meters with the integration of Gas and Water with the electrical parameters thereby, extending the flexibility for the user to budget expenses & save energy whereas the Shopping malls, industries, factories, and apartments can use energy management solutions to avoid a lot of unwanted usages.

We can’t control the whole world! But as literates, we at least know to save power in our surroundings; at office & home.

Note: The values are approximated to less value possible to make ourselves feel less guilty. There is a chance of more wastage than what we actually have estimated because there are still some forms of energy wastage which can’t be noticed!

THIS IS DEFINITELY A STORYTELLING, BUT THE ONE NEVER TOLD OR IMAGINED!

ANY UNTOLD STORY CAN’T BE CONCLUDED AS A HYPOTHESIS BEFORE GIVING IT A THOUGHT! THINK ABOUT IT. 

A THOUGHTFUL EXCLAMATORY!

is Compulsory.

#DigitalTransformation FOR INDIAN ELECTION SYSTEM & THE FUTURE OF GOVERNANCE – A HYPOTHESIS

My previous article was about how to effectively choose an energy management system? Since the hype is on Indian elections, why can we not correlate the same for how to effectively achieve good governance using technology, #DigitalTransformation?

Note: This is just a hypothesis that might be a possibility with ever growing technology, data & the evolving ways of easy processing.

Energy is central to nearly every major challenge & opportunity the world faces today so does an opportunity to choose a leader to you.

This is an opportunity that might be central to every major challenge or opportunity you face tomorrow but the emotions towards caste, influence is mundane to get replaced quickly. Science may help, Technology may be the witness to put one’s thoughts & mind forward for the well being of the human race. Either saving our country for future generations or saving the future of the country for generations, We are in the front line. The prior was our job, what we are absolutely good at maybe only in the energy space but that decides the future of a country, but the latter is something where we wanted to be a helping hand.

Before going digital, Dear people, please cast your vote because, #ApnaTimeAagaya

So, Digital Transformation for Elections & Future of Governance can be addressed for 3 categories. 

Leaders:

It is the primary concept where elections fail, people go emotional in choosing a leader after all the humans right! But, the true sense of a political leader is always in disguise but not if digital trends like AI, Sensitivity analysis & Blockchain technology comes into the picture.

Digital Transformation-Election-Leaders

Technologies like these can record minute financial details & provide a clean chit for a political leader who can be in the race. Sensitivity analysis can help predict future behaviors based on the previous & AI, Machine Learning can help the leader by personalizing people experiences.

Voting:
election day ballot box

The process of voting can be made very transparent & effective with the technologies that we have now, needless to say, the Aadhar system had every individual’s security data (like fingerprints, address, mobile, etc.) & the voting system can be so secure & effective using biometric systems using retina, thumb impression, etc.

People & Governance:

Nearly 1.4 billion population & slow pace of #DigitaTransformation makes our governance the weakest in the whole world, but may not be anymore if all the above-mentioned technologies are in place making the #DigitalTransfusion into the whole country through every house/street by means of “Local Governance”.

Digital Transformation-Election-Governance
  • Financial Matters like money, gold, properties are taken care of by Blockchain at it’s best.
  • Criminal Matters are taken care of by Sensitivity analysis & behavioral analytics using Big Data & Robotics.
  • The Agricultural, Industrial & Infrastructure can have co-aligned growth through technologies like IoT, Additive Manufacturing, Smart cities, EV, cloud technologies, etc.
  • Flawless governance is achievable with technologies like AI & machine learning, etc. to integrate all together.

Keeping aside the theory, Every change has it’s limitations & problems before stepping in. You all know the difficulties to implement these still-evolving technologies, but may not be impossible within 10-15 years. Let’s hope for the best.

Meanwhile, I would love to hear your thoughts on how #DigitalTransformation can help us achieve good governance in the comments below.

Digital Transformation by Elmeasure

Digital Transfusion – An Energy Industry Perspective of Digital Transformation.

The digital world is the living world & the rest are just spectators. So, this statement gives birth to these 2 questions of all time, that makes Digital Transformation is not the luxury but necessary.

Are you Digital Ready? / Are you Digitally Ready?

Digital Transformation in many areas like Data, Analytics, Technology, Revenue, even strategy, etc… is accused of being merciless & collapse many fat-cat corporates within no time.

It is not a specific industry but, even the technological industries had their own versions of excuses for not preferring change & the following basic reasons has to be addressed for being on top.

  • No Information / Don’t see it coming
  • No idea of where to start & How it ends
  • Budget, Resources, & etc.



Digital Transformation is a process where the way an organization operates, measure & perform gets effective with less hassle in terms of measurement, monitoring & control.

So, In context to #DigitalTransformation in the shoes of Energy industry, We have 3 concepts to hit on.

1. Digital Transfusion but not Digital Transformation

In medical terms, Transfusion happens in order to change the old blood with a fresh one that suits. Electricity is one such bloodline that flows through the entire organization & any type of organization that demands primary attention. But, is it possible for Digital Transformation of the company particularly in Energy & power?

Yes, Which why we call it Digital Transfusion & this is how we help organizations to achieve the Digital Transformation.

Watch all the related videos
2. Where to begin, especially when you have limited resources.

Basic digital transformation should start with a scope to cover the whole organization via energy & power resources that cover at least 40% of your annual expenses. These can be monitored, measured & controlled using a system that can recognize enormous energy-saving prospects, help optimize operations and track return on assets (ROA) to a great extent in manufacturing, industrial machinery, power & utilities, mining, oil & gas industries.

Adopting energy management software to provide flexibility, mobility and data access to help enterprises focus on their core business in addition to environmental sustainability.

#JustSaying Few Energy management systems (#ELNet) have recorded a whooping RoI of <6 months & reducing expenses by ~15% annually.

3. Where is this headed ultimately?

This can take us to the next level where organizations can personalize employee experiences, which is the future of work.

The capabilities of digital transition are the inclusion of real-time monitoring, and cloud services to ease the workflows, predict trends & behavior patterns offer plans in decision-making.

The rapid growth in technology towards digitalization allows the industry to take complete advantage in analyzing the overall energy usage, real-time processing of the acquired data, and tailoring the insights as per user needs. Energy management is leading the world’s energy efficiency with the rise of Interoperability (A concept that enlights the Internet of Things – IoT) even in the industry 4.0.

Let’s continue the talk in the stall: H12. D45 (D4511) at #HannoverMesse.

SMART ENERGY REPORTING WITH REGRESSION ANALYSIS

When the energy you consume is the metric of your performance & growth, Frequent Energy Auditing is the best way to achieve your energy targets.

The energy audit is the key source of energy efficiency initiative. With the changing time and technology, energy audit report needs more detailed analytics representation. At present, an energy audit standard report contains the details of the plant/facility, energy usage analysis and energy conservation measures. This standard reporting contains the information that is already available with the client.

The smart reporting here means more analysis of the data to get more insights. Regression analysis is such an analytical tool that needs to be a part of an energy audit report. Regression analysis gives a clear picture of how energy usage varies depending on multiple variables.

Sample Application:

Calculation of boiler efficiency is essential if its parameters need to be controlled for either maintaining or enhancing its efficiency. But the determination of boiler efficiency using the conventional method is time-consuming and very expensive. Hence, it is not recommended to find boiler efficiency frequently. The loss due to dry flue gas, loss due to hydrogen in fuel and loss due to moisture in fuel are the major boiler losses which contribute for the overall boiler losses. Energy Auditing by regression analysis

To evaluate the boiler performance multiple regression analysis need to be performed on boiler efficiency based on the boiler losses due to dry flue gas, the hydrogen & the moisture content in fuel. The coefficient of determination (R2) determines the goodness of fit.

The technique can determine the factors that are best controlled or changed to affect (increase) the efficiency or other primary performance indication of the plant, as well as to establish a baseline or best-possible operational constraints to be used to control the plant in future.

Why is it required?

The advanced technology let us have access to huge connected data that are readily available for the industrial plants.  Thus there is no time constraint to an energy expert to get a huge amount of data. Analytics of these data will lead many energy saving options. To achieve this, we need more details of the inter-dependency of different plant parameters. Hence with the help of this technique, we can save more energy with the united effort by subject matter expert, operation & maintenance personnel.

What next?

We have evaluated the applicability of this technique in a power plant. But these details enable a better analysis in all the sectors as a part of the energy audit report. This type of analysis helps us perform the first level energy analysis in frequent time. This technique will have a number of applications like the prediction of future energy consumption, equipment efficiency, possible energy waste areas, etc. If this type of insights is provided in the energy audit report, the submitted report will have more impact as compared to the standard report will help choose the right energy management for you.

Here are the few tools that come handy for an energy analyst, consultant or auditor & the software that help measure, monitor, control & conserve energy.

Energy Management in Pharma Industries

THE CURIOUS CASE OF PHARMA & ENERGY IN INDIA.


The pharma industry is under depression!

Does it sound uncommon or unheard?

Yeah, that's true because we are not cared till now.

Dear reader, Let's have a small analogy addressing you, to clearly understand what pharma industry is undergoing.

There can be multiple reasons why you undergo depression. When you are "The need of the hour" & you have not cared at all, What would you do in such situations?

You keep calm, try to give some space & time so that your importance will be noticed. Unfortunately, if you still see no response, Then you will burst out the pain you are bearing. Irrespective of the reasons for your instability, you will be surely cured by the doctors & advanced technology we have now.

If it is the same case with an industry, there are no doctors to cure this.

But, there is a hope for the owners which is, There are devices & solutions to curate the reasons & a way of stopping it from draining energy.

Energy saving areas for industrial & commercial spaces

Let's dwell into deeper.

How is the Pharma Industry in India:

The reports provided by Pharma 2010 suggests a vision that India would be in the top 20 in the industry by 2025. This would help in enhancing the per capita GDP growth leading to further expansion of the economy.

What if Pharma Industry & the Energy Sector are not talking to each other anymore?

It will be chaos. Pharma & Energy are the basic needs now. Energy industry may survive even without pharma, but not vice-versa & ultimately the humans will be affected if either of it doesn’t exist.

Does this sound like a triangular Love story? Well, It is one but it will be adverse if humans don't patch the gap between pharma & energy because both Pharma & Energy are dependent on you & you need them the most.

Right now, Do you feel the adrenaline flowing in you?

I mean, is this curious enough?

Pharma, human & energy linked together.

What if Pharma Industry didn’t get a proper support from the Energy & Us?

They should earn about a few ways manage energy & should learn to choose the right Energy Management Solution that fit their need?

  1. The Machinery degradation & the manufacturing process gets hectic, Technically we will be behind the growth.
  2. Medicine is going to be a luxury, those who have a big balance can only afford it.
  3. Pharma Industry slowly drowns the way it operated & eventually slows down the Economy.
WHAT TO LOOK AT?
  1. Measure, Monitor & Conserve the energy wherever possible.
  2. Take control of the Machines by a proper process management.
  3. You can save energy at Hospital equipment & provide uninterrupted medical treatments.
  4. Take care of the different HVAC parameters & making both the hospitals & pharma industries more user-friendly.
HOW TO DO THAT?
Utility Management:

THE INTEROPERABLE SYSTEMS IN TEXTILE INDUSTRY – THE ROLE OF IoT.

Indian Textile Industry hits the 5th Millennium: The archaeological surveys and studies have found that the people of Harrapan civilization knew to weave, and the spinning of cotton four thousand years ago. Apart from the Bronze age civilization, There was a proof for textile trade in India during the early centuries, A block printed and resist-dyed fabric, whose origin is from Gujarat was found in the tombs of Fostat, Egypt.

Needless to say that, we are very old in the business, but then it was very much less compared to now. The textile industry is now is not just manufacturing of yarn, fabrics, and textiles for clothing, carpets but, further classified based on distinct sections such as research, design, manufacture, and distribution.

What is the Indian Textile Industry weaving now?

Name anything in the Textile industry, Either India was already there or India was the only one there. The oldest sector & the greatest contributor to our economy has set benchmarks in various ways.

The growth of the Textile industry looks promising with the increase in market demand worldwide for textile products. Sneak into the facts & figures to understand what is weaving in the Indian Textile Industry now.

textile facts & figures in India

Although the industry is well poised to grow at an annual rate of 15% but going ahead will be tough unless the industry acquires technological know-how related to “ From Connecting Each Module to Automating the Whole Process”.

The Risks!

Besides the inferior technology, the industry has been persistently facing various external issues which need immediate attention. Major issues are:

  • Skill gaps and the shortage of skilled manpower as the process is yet to be automated
  • Very high-interest rates
  • Lack of sustained demand from the user sector
  • Import of second-hand machinery whose life cycle is less & the average energy consumption/cost is more.
  • The Process which has to be measured, monitored & controlled for avoiding unnecessary variable costs & eventually gaining more profits.
  • The knowledge for the owners to Invest in the technology.
Is the Fashion Industry still running Old-fashioned?

The process involved in the textile industry is found to be highly complex with the beginning of research, design, development to finished products. These processes are performed using a wide range of machines such as spinning, weaving, dyeing, printing, finishing and manufacturing fabrics.

the basic process modules of a textile factory

It is completely process-based where each & every stage has the power that will lead to a large impact on productivity and profitability during any obstructions. We need keen monitoring at every stage in complex processes such as textile that demands an Integrated system to measure the precise details of each machine.

An interoperable platform for Textile Factories?

The textile industry is found to be the leading sector that needs immediate digitalization as it is dependent on precise details of equipment functioning, management of dyes, and monitoring of raw materials. Further, it is necessary to consider the deviations occurring in the industry from Standard Operating Conditions to minimize the revenue losses. This suggests the need to effectively utilize technology in the textile industry either it is IIoT based products or the IoT solutions.

Interoperability is the concept evolved by the way Internet of Things (IoT) based solutions works, which is generally defined as a network of physical objects with internet connectivity for the communication between the devices and the system.

The optimum productivity is achieved only when the system is process oriented & the process is automated!

Process controlling

Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is found to be a gateway between the computing technologies, cloud, mobile machine learning, and industrial infrastructure to help industries elevate their productivity and efficiency. IIoT solutions is a world of the monotonous throng with networks, sensors, operating equipment and devices in comparison to smart home appliances. The information collected from the devices will be used to analyze, monitor, maintain high performance and efficiency in industrial applications such as production and maintenance.

Further, data collected can be directly uploaded to a cloud server using products like EPC through various communication protocols.

It is necessary to utilize process management systems in textile industries to monitor and receive real-time data for the effective decision-making process.

These solutions can help in preventive maintenance to reduce the overall energy consumption and to provide a sustainable environment.

Enhance Life & Economy through Textile industry:

In several textile industries, sensors were placed in washers, dryers, and other equipment to improvise their performance by attaining real-time data, in addition to detecting the failure of equipment thereby reducing the downtime.

  • Specific energy consumption of heavy loads: Calculation of section-wise energy consumption against product output
  • Performance check and periodic maintenance: Verification of equipment data with respect to rated specs
  • Monitoring of cyclic operation of spinning unit (Ring frame): Number of Stoppages with duration during doffing; Energy comparison of various ring frames bis-à-vis product outputs (Ring UKG); Different Yarns count and specific energy consumption (UKG) per Ring frame
  • Identifying the idle running of the machine.

There are multiple Case studies on Pacific Textiles, Getzner Textile, Everest Textile industry indicates the need for their rapid transformation towards the digital revolution to improvise their operations & productivity.

Frequent challenges observed in incorporating IoT in the textile industry:

Recent studies on IIoT indicates a rapid growth towards automating textile industry from the initial stages of development to production, storage, and marketing to improve the time to market (TTM). However, the practical implementation of IoT in the industry will undergo various challenges while redefining the textile industry as listed below:

  • IoT being a network of physical objects, it is necessary to ensure appropriate connectivity of weaving machines with huge bandwidth through Ethernet.
  • A large amount of structured/unstructured data will be available on the integration of IoT and it is necessary to manage these voluminous data.
  • Suitable IoT management platforms that are compatible with ERP, administrative and management systems are required.
  • Data integrity and confidentiality of the data transferred needs to be considered with the integration of IoT platforms.

HOW TO CHOOSE AN ENERGY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM?

Energy is the biggest resource every country can count on for their seamless future. When the future is determined based on your ability to manage energy resources, how sure are you to get an adequate amount of electricity is the question to answer. When saving is not on the bucket list, it comes to the traditional way of any developing country’s life, rich get more access & poor get limited access.

„Energy is central to nearly every major challenge & opportunity the world faces today.“

Affordable & clean energy is one of the 17 goals to transform the world called ’sustainable development goals‘ by UNO. They believe that the world revolves around energy to evolve the new phases of development.

It is one of the requisites for the sustained growth of an individual, organization, factory, state or even nation.

So, the necessity of energy & its management is like a fingerprint that can’t be the same for everyone. Even 2 similar plants might need different areas of energy saving. So, we don’t have something called ready-made EMS available. Though some made it available online, it actually does show you a picture of whole bills but no predictions or suggestions to your RoI, Savings.

In short, If a system can’t save your manpower, money & resources that are as good as doing nothing.

So, how do you choose an EMS that actually works for you?

What is an EMS?

Energy Management System is a platform that helps Residential complexes, manufacturing plants, commercial buildings to define & suggest what all the possible areas to save energy.

“Measuring your energy usage and cost is the first step to properly managing energy”

Energy is not an expenditure; it is an asset where the monitored & controlled utilization can bring a lot of saving.

What exactly an EMS offers?

  • Improve strategic energy management capabilities.
  • Build the case to leadership on the value of energy management and gain additional support.
  • Improve control and transparency of energy costs and budgets.
  • Improve operational efficiency.
  • Facilitate demand response and energy purchasing.

What do you need to do?

There are various elements involved in taking the decision to finalize an EMS, from installation to reports until predictive analysis of the energy & process parameters, the requirement varies from organization to organization. In such cases, there should be few parameters to recognize the feasibility of the system with your organization like,

1. Multiple communication possibilities:

The Software you use should be capable to accept the ocean of changes & ready to mingle with any other third-party devices. Keeping aside the compatibility of a system, It should allow the change management that we consider mandatory even for the systems, would definitely save us a fortune. It should be able to get along with any type of communication protocols which is only possible with an interoperable platform with the capability of accepting any kind of devices.

2. Technology & Customization:

Technology is far most important any other aspects, it seems you are working very hard but, you are still not growing. Just like Nokia, we fail & still, we didn’t know the reason. It decides your epitome of growth.

The better the technology the better the results in the industry. It is very important to check with the technology & the platform it is built on. It is well-versed that the need for EMS varies for every business, of course, every sector. It is thus very important to customize the solution that solves your pain points, & leave the rest unless given for free of cost.

Technology that can’t be customized for you is not the right one for you.

3. Future Proof:

An organization is a living object. Every invention & investment in the organization should be made sure to be compatible with future changes either in terms of technology or the people. An organization can be successful when it is process oriented & the platforms you use to make it happen are future proof.

The software once designed for your organization should be made sure that the same software can be upgraded with multiple aspects of technological advancements like compatibility with other party vendors, possible vertical integration, easy technological upgrade, etc. It should be made future-proof to fit the organization at any time.

4. Data Safety, Security & Analysis:

Data is a very important asset for every organization now & the vulnerability of data leads to unprecedented consequences as it mainly depicts the privacy of an individual, an organization, etc. If your data is compromised your competitor is as good as you or may be better than you because Data has a better idea than you do.

The output of every invention is based on the ease of data accessing along with its safety & security. Technologies like Blockchain may be advanced, but many countries are still in dilemma whether to imbibe it due to its data decentralization. It is not applicable for every Industry, also not everyone in the industry that is applicable may not be happy with low secure technologies but, This kind of technologies will be the essential part of the industry in the coming years if the safety & security is taken care of.

5. Return on Investment (RoI):

People should consider spending on systems in saving Energy as an investment but not as the expenditure. For people who consider it as the investment here is what you need to consider, The RoI (Return on Investment). Less the payback period, better the solution you have invested on & early start saving the energy resources.

Apart from these major requisites, there are few secondary factors to look at before choosing, else the Other Requisites can be:

Return on investment data

6. Affordability:

There are 100s of players in the market who has software that named as Energy Management System, just create an account, purchase the online software even at 10000 bucks, Which is where people got confused with the word „affordability“ of a system. Affordability is actually the price-product-premises fit which self-defines as the price you pay is worth the product features, aesthetics, & technology that should help solve the pain of your enterprise.

Being in the Energy sector for one & half decade, we have read about different customer needs, consumed a lot of data & spoke with multiple domain experts & designed software that works towards your future.
