Baden, SwitzerlandABB has released its IndustrialIT cpmPlus Energy Manager software to help customers in all industries monitor, manage and optimize their energy usage for maximum efficiency and cost savings. The software is said to addresses the business side of energy management by producing accurate energy demand plans and taking advantage of them in energy supply planning and optimization.
Energy Manager also includes reporting and analysis tools that evaluate the energy use patterns of all processes and pinpoint areas for improvement.
According to ABB, the software indicates the cost of electricity and provides support to schedule electricity consumption for off-peak hours. It coordinates electricity purchases and sales with its own generation capacity, then schedules this generation during on-peak hours, when purchased electricity is most expensive, to provide additional cost savings.
ABB expects that cpmPlus Energy Manager can help customers achieve overall cost reductions of 2% to 5%of their total electricity cost, which can translate into millions of dollars saved annually for some manufacturers.
Energy Manager is a scalable software solution, that allows end users to start with basic energy monitoring and reporting at a single facility, and later expand to include multiple sites, or be implemented throughout the entire company to optimize energy use and manage energy supply costs.
Energy Manager is a core component of cpmPlus, ABB’s Collaborative Production Management suite of applications. cpmPlus provides process and production management, advanced optimization and connectivity solutions for the process industries.
