CHICAGO, Oct. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- At this time of widely fluctuating energy
costs and an uncertain economy, large energy users are seeking new ways to
monitor and control all enterprise-wide energy and water-related expenses. To
address this demand, Industrial Peer-to-Peer (Ip2) LLC today introduces a new
solution for Enterprise Energy Management, based on its proven eDNA process
Originally designed to support the power monitoring needs of the world's
leading utilities, this is the first time that eDNA has been leveraged for
corporate and industrial power consumers. Two large universities have already
selected the Enterprise Energy Management solution, including DePaul
University and Northern Illinois University.
The Enterprise Energy Management solution allows organizations to acquire,
store, access and analyze their real-time power-use data, and then integrate
that information with enterprise systems to promote sound cost-cutting
With its broad functionality, users have the ability to: display real-time
energy usage; execute trending and reporting on historical energy use by
meter, facility, division or company; send alarm notifications via email and
pager when usage patterns meet specified criteria; conduct invoice analysis
comparing rate structures; and correlate weather and production data.
With this data, users can identify inefficiencies and eliminate waste.
Specific to energy monitoring, users can aggregate loads and generate historic
load profile reports to better negotiate pricing in a deregulated market.
"Information is key to running a profitable and productive enterprise,"
says John Kalanik, co-founder and president of InStep Software LLC, parent
company of Industrial Peer-to-Peer. "Companies have long leveraged
information on customers, financials and the supply chain to make more
informed business decisions. Now there is an appreciation that data on energy
use is also a vital part of an organization's success."
Key eDNA differentiators
The R&D team at Ip2 has spent more than 10 years developing eDNA to
address the needs of process industries. Following is a list of key
- eDNA's unique compression technology allows it to capture and store more
accurate historical and real-time data than any other solution available
- A distributed solution, eDNA enables easy data retrieval from disparate
information sources through one application.
- eDNA is an open and scalable solution, unlike other process-historian
- Modular solution allows for easy add-ons, unlike other monolithic
- Web functionality offers executives their own "dashboard" for enhanced
graphics, and easy reporting and analysis.
- eDNA is the first and only message-based architecture solution in the
power industry, which minimizes the load on the server enabling more
users to gain access at once.
- eDNA is licensed by the server, not the seat or point, like other
products, making it cost-effective.
