Dashboard: A rich, user-customizable responsive dashboard interface was created to present the results of the data analysis. Based on their role & permission level, each user had access to standard results as well as the ability to personalize their views to include the most relevant information using an expansive library of widgets tailored to show energy usage, cost and other metrics information.
Business Analytics: This module was created to enable customers to slice and dice details of their energy consumption, carbon footprint by various dimensions such as locations, divisions and compare the data from different locations.
Emission Tracking: This module was created to track different scientific emission factors required to calculate emissions such as carbon, methane that are generated by the consumption of energy from different sources. This helps customers to track their emissions and maintain any caps either self-imposed or government imposed on the corporation. This involves very complex calculations and aggregations of data on the fly.
Interval Data Module: As part of the energy management, it was also required to be able to track energy consumption at 15-minute intervals to be able to provide better insight into energy consumption and also provide a notification mechanism to spot the problems. This results in huge savings for the customers when there is any problem in their manufacturing plants or any other facility where energy is turned on by mistake.
Integration with Energy Star®: Energy Star is a government agency that certifies buildings and equipment that is energy efficient. To be able to achieve and maintain that certification, customers are required to feed their energy consumption details to Energy Star application on regular basis. Since our client is tracking energy consumption for buildings of their clients anyway, this module was developed to provide integration with Energy Star and also provide reporting of details from Energy Star. This also involves complex batch programming where energy consumption is fed on a regular basis and results are pulled back from Energy Star.
