Intelligence, Connectivity, Efficiency – the new ICE Age in Energy Management!

Energy is needed everywhere – be it industry, agriculture, homes, buildings, infrastructure or services. Even as we grapple with the twin-headed monster of rising energy demand and ravaging carbon emission, we are only left with Hobson’s choice – the need to manage energy efficiently.

 

 

Energy Management is no longer just an intellectual debate. It is a critically conditioned action, spanning as it does across the broad spectrum of energy - generation, transmission, distribution and consumption.

 

The field of application can be spread across any kind of enterprise – from a mega power generating station to a big electrical utility, from a sprawling industrial facility to a large mining company, from a busy hospital complex to a bustling city infrastructure management and so on. Whatever be the activity, the vital aspect everywhere is service continuity backed up by reliability, security and sustainability.

 

Intelligence, Connectivity and Efficiency form the troika of Energy Management. They mark the key features of today’s integrated energy system framework.

 

Intelligence comes from automation devices in the various processes, solutions and software controlling the dynamics of an operation. High-performance remote management PLCs, for example, manage telemetry and communication, enabling transmission of data between remote sites and the central supervisory system. The complexity, criticality and magnitude of today’s systems require smart solutions to control and command operational effectiveness.

 

The integrated architecture provides the Connectivity needed to operate and manage the entire system. Like cogs of a wheel, the various components of a network are inter-linked by standard communication protocols and other media like cable, GSM, modems, radio, satellite and internet. Today’s network connectivity demands advanced transmission capabilities supporting high bandwidth, scalability, cost effectiveness and easy installation.

 

Efficiency can be realized through the use of Green and eco-design products for sustainability and a plethora of solutions for saving energy – Building Management, Lighting Control, HVAC Control, Security Management, Access Control, Process Management, Cooling, Surveillance and Environmental Monitoring, Data Center Management and so forth. Such smart solutions also deliver significant savings and optimize total cost of ownership.

 

What really matters in the end are committed actions of people in charge of entities and establishments to drive energy management by installing and implementing appropriate products and solutions in their facilities.

 

Sustainability is not mere rhetoric, it spells good economics. The compelling – albeit competing – needs of meeting increasing energy demand while reducing our carbon footprint can only be met through smart solutions and technologies that deliver intelligence, connectivity and efficiency.

 

Everyone’s requirement is everyone’s responsibility.
