Sustainability Software Solutions
Sustainability for the corporate enterprise has evolved to define both the long-term viability of the enterprise as well as the moral obligation of the company to ensure the long-term wellness of the environment. Sustainability is now a critical pillar in the strategic plans of many corporations and brings focus to how an enterprise optimizes the use of all resources at all times in order to:
• Minimize production and operational costs in relation to its global competition
• Minimize the use of limited non-renewable resources and energy
• Minimize the emission of byproducts that have negative effects on the environment
Implementing a successful sustainability improvement program requires the seamless integration of past, present, forecasted and targeted data, as well as analytics to provide the insight and intelligence needed to drive action.
The ICONICS Sustainability Software Solution
includes native capability to integrate across the enterprise to access and merge real-time and historical information on energy and resource consumption, carbon emissions and most importantly, causes of excessive consumption. This includes real-time access to metering, instrumentation and existing control systems achievable through ICONICS’ compliance with open standards such as BACnet, OPC, SNMP and Modbus. Also critical is integration with numerous IT systems, such as those providing rate schedules, carbon emissions data and demand control requests, all integrated through database interfaces, private and public Web services and more.
Insight into sustainability performance and opportunities for improvement is achieved by the solution's ability to mash up all data and provide aggregation, normalization and comparison. User-definable dashboards deliver the intuitive graphical visualization, KPIs and benchmarking needed to bring focus to issues. In addition to the intelligence needed to support user analysis, ICONICS provides a fault detection and diagnostics solution that will run continuously, analyzing equipment and operations for inefficiency or energy-wasting failures. Faults are immediately provided as alerts, along with a probability analysis of potential causes of the fault.
A few examples can be found in manufacturing and building operations. The amount of electricity, resin, and potable water used, and the amount of contaminated water and carbon emission produced, can be aggregated and normalized to the number of product units produced, in real-time. Or, for the operation of a building, the amount of electricity and natural gas used can be tracked based on the heating/cooling degree days and the occupancy per hour.
ICONICS' Sustainability Software Solution is both comprehensive and, in the words of our customers, "quick to deploy, quick to online". The software is very scalable, and can easily expand from a single building or process to a global enterprise implementation. Customers are achieving double-digit resource savings and very short paybacks. Your operation can too.
