Energy management for smart community
Under the project title “Smartes Yspertal” an energy management concept for municipal administration buildings was created in the 1,900 inhabitant community in Lower Austria. Savings potential and inefficiencies in public buildings are thus to be shown. Microtronics has equipped the buildings with data loggers of the type myDatalogNANOamr. The myDatalogNANOamr enables wireless meter reading from energy and water meters. The data are provided on the EN ISO 50001:2011 certified energy management...
Corporate sustainability: A guide to measuring and improving energy efficiencies
As environmental scrutiny of global industries continues to grow, governments are seeking to impose energy efficiency targets on companies in order to comply with new directives. One solution is to encourage energy suppliers to become energy service companies, who work with customers to identify potential savings and share the benefits this delivers. For the global food processing industry, this provides a welcome opportunity to measure and accurately assess the energy utilization of the manufacturing process...
Without Small Data, Big Data and Cloud-Based Software are Useless to HVAC Maintenance
Yes, the facility management industry has entered the age of ‘big data’ where extremely large data sets are being collected and analyzed to reveal patterns, trends, and associations, primarily between HVAC equipment and energy optimization. However, “Big Data” may be the most worn out catchphrase ever. When you think “big” you think Wall Street, the Pentagon, Silicon Valley. Places far and away from where you live and work, with needs far different from what you encounter in...

Should energy managers worry about energy data security?
Ah, 2016 – the year of fake news, celebrity deaths and cyber attacks, namely to the electricity grids of several countries. The biggest story came out of the United States, where the Washington Post (falsely)reported that a Vermont utility had been infiltrated by Russian hackers. Should energy managers be concerned about cyber attacks like these? Embracing connectivity thanks to theIoT devices of Industry 4.0 also means exposing buildings to potential security vulnerabilities, a significant fear among...
