• Energy data analysis as the basis for energy saving measures
The services of Energy Analytics range from simple energy reports, through detailed analyses, up to support in complying with current standards such as DIN EN ISO 50001.
• Reductions in energy costs of more than 5 percent in pilot projects
At the SPS IPC Drives 2013, Siemens will be presenting its new "Energy Analytics" service which, for the first time, will provide industrial customers with scalable and flexible energy data management as a managed service.
As part of the service, Siemens experts support companies in systematically capturing and analyzing their energy data, and in subsequently identifying and implementing energy saving measures.
The data-driven services range from simple energy reports to detailed analyses, all the way to providing support in fulfilling current standards such as DIN EN ISO 50001. The services are available in four service packages, and are suitable for companies of varying sizes.
Optimum transparency on energy consumption is an essential factor in boosting the efficiency of industrial plants. This is where the new "Energy Analytics" service from the Siemens Customer Services Division comes in. The energy data management system can be set up quickly, at minimum cost and during ongoing operations. The first step is to install and connect up a data acquisition system. For this purpose, customers or Siemens experts connect the "Energy Box" to the existing meter infrastructure of the industrial plant. Alternatively, the "Energy App" can also be installed on the customer's existing hardware. Raw energy data is continuously captured via the Energy Box and transferred to the Siemens Service Center for analysis. There, the raw data is processed and analyzed by Siemens energy efficiency experts with the support of the well-established Simatic B.Data software.
Customers thus benefit from the company's more than 15 years' experience in the area of energy efficiency. Observance of the Siemens security standard CERT and compliance with ISO 27001 ensures maximum data security. Customers can access the reports and analyses via the Energy Analytics web portal: depending on the selected service package, these range from current consumption values such as power, gas or water, through key performance indicators at the machine, factory, or site level, all the way to analyses or consumption forecasts by Siemens experts.
The Energy Analytics services are available in four service packages. The Bronze package ensures transparency on energy consumption and is based on purely manual data entry. The Silver package has automated data acquisition and is especially suitable for users who would like to identify initial savings potential on the basis of a simple energy data management system. The Gold package offers additional analyses by Siemens experts as the basis for detailed energy saving measures. The Platinum package has further add-on functions such as machine-level analyses and is especially suitable for customers looking to certify their energy data management system to ISO 50001, for example. Its scalability and flexibility makes Energy Analytics suitable for companies of varying sizes and from different industries. Thanks to its simple setup, it can be installed at comparatively low financial cost. The only expenses during operation are the monthly costs for automated provision of regular energy reports and analyses. The services can be expanded at any time to keep pace with growing customer requirements.
Reductions of more than 5 percent in energy consumption thanks to energy data transparency Energy Analytics has already been successfully used in pilot projects in 2013. It was therefore possible, on the basis of improved data transparency alone, to identify measures that enable reductions in energy costs of more than 5 percent per year. These measures include avoiding increased energy consumption at the machine level, identifying unnecessary consumption during non-productive periods, and changing employee behavior. In addition, technical measures were identified which will release much greater savings potential when implemented. Contact for journalists:Siemens AG, Media Relations
