Emerson Process Management Introduces Energy Advisor
Energy Advisor, a real-time energy management information system, automates the process of monitoring and managing energy consumption. With real-time information about a site’s energy performance, process manufacturers can identify inefficiencies and irregularities and take corrective action, saving on average 5–10% in energy costs annually, the company says. The system pulls energy data from various sources, including (but not limited to) DeltaV and Ovation distributed control systems, as well as wireless infrastructure, to provide real-time analysis and historical context. Manufacturers can analyze and compare the amount of energy a system is designed to use, what it has used over time, and current consumption.
