ICONICS Energy AnalytiX is an energy monitoring, energy analysis and energy management system (EMS) that delivers rich platform and browser-independent real-time visualization. The new 10.8 release is making a prominent impact in energy and facilities management, within some of the largest building and real estate portfolios in the world. Customers on average save between 6% to 10% in annual energy costs with a return on investment of less than 18 months, often qualifying them for additional utility rebates based on those savings. Best of all, this is done entirely on existing networks with existing equipment so there’s no need to "rip and replace" or do any costly retrofits.

Energy AnalytiX performs targeted energy data analysis to increase efficiency and reduce operational costs through actionable information. This helps improve energy usage patterns, monitoring energy reliability and forecasting energy consumption through visualization on any device.

The latest version offers groundbreaking new analytical capabilities such as Degree Days Analysis to normalize energy consumption trends based on weather data and other external factors. Companies looking to streamline their Energy Star reporting process will find Energy AnalytiX 10.8 a convenient way to generate energy, water, or IT energy usage reports appropriate for submission into Energy Star’s Portfolio Manager.

Energy AnalytiX 10.8 features a number of time-saving usability improvements to expedite deployment, including the ability to quickly connect to meters using auto-configuration templates. Simply select the meter manufacturer and model number, and Energy AnalytiX generates the rest of the meter configuration through a simple wizard.

Finally, users can leverage "Big Data" performance improvements to facilitate analysis of large amounts of consumption data in an easily understandable format. The new and improved Energy AnalytiX Viewer allows users to drill into energy efficiency offenders and switch between different angles of analysis through a simple drop-down menu.
