Urjanet Inc.'s UtilityCONNECT Supports EPA's New Version of ENERGY STAR(R) Portfolio Manager(R)
Sep 17 13
Urjanet Inc. announced that its utilityCONNECT subscription-based, energy data service now supports EPA's new version of ENERGY STAR(R) Portfolio Manager(R) released in July 2013. Portfolio Manager is an online tool that helps companies measure and track energy use and greenhouse gas emissions to benchmark building performance. Urjanet now allows its customers to take the normalized utility usage data from utilityCONNECT and input that data directly into Portfolio Manager, saving tremendous time, improving benchmarking results and providing more accurate data with which to make business decisions. Urjanet's utilityCONNECT normalizes data streams from more than 800 utilities and other data sources to provide large corporations, government agencies and industrial facilities with a single, reliable source for actionable energy insight. The cloud-based subscription service delivers data such as electricity and natural gas billing, demand, consumption, history, tariffs and rate plans, weather data, interval metering and carbon intensity. In addition to ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager, utilityCONNECT integrates seamlessly with a customer's existing cloud or enterprise software applications, accounting systems, business intelligence platforms, and energy and carbon management infrastructure. ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager is an online tool businesses use to benchmark the performance of one building or an entire whole portfolio of buildings. According to the EPA, more than 40% of U.S. commercial building space is already benchmarked in Portfolio Manager making it the de facto industry standard. Additionally, more than 35% of the Fortune 500, half of the largest U.S. healthcare organizations, major league sports teams, colleges and universities, and major cities are standardizing on the tool.
Urjanet, Inc. Adds New Data Streams and Intelligence Layers to its Energy Data Platform
Sep 17 13
Urjanet Inc. announced three new additions to its product line. The new products alertCONNECT, meterCONNECT and weatherCONNECT add new functionality and intelligence to data to further enhance the ability of organizations to plan more effectively for energy spend and usage. Urjanet is releasing these new products in conjunction with its annual user conference, SPARK 2013, this week. weatherCONNECT - information that helps calibrate facility-by-facility energy performance across an enterprise based on data regarding local weather conditions from 5,000 certified weather stations across North America. This allows for the calculation of the impact of seasonal shifts and atmospheric events on energy performance. meterCONNECT - a data stream that provides customers access to AMI (advanced meter information) without installing any hardware or software, allowing them to react more quickly to demand-side events and change behavior accordingly. meterCONNECT supports a wide variety of standards along with utility and non-utility data sources. Five to sixty minute interval data is available through meterCONNECT. With data demand and smart grid participation growing, meterCONNECT is the most cost effective way to incorporate advanced metering into any energy management strategy. alertCONNECT - a data service framework that provides instantaneous, actionable information about anomalies in energy usage and billing, allowing customers to take quick corrective action as needed. Alerts include service operation below a company's contracted levels, late payments, meter-reading delays and more.
