Industrial energy consumers often have insufficient insight into their energy consumption and/or yields. When a lot of energy is consumed or generated, it is not always easy to obtain a quick overview. By using I-Real’s RealM2M software, Liander is now able to offer real-time measurement data to industrial energy consumers. This gives customers insight into their energy consumption.
For automatic data retrieval, I-Real supplies a complete modem. This is installed and connected by Liander’s engineers to a digital meter at the industrial consumer’s request. This concerns both consumption as well as production meters. The modem pushes the consumption values to the I-Real web service every 5 minutes. Various units are possible, including capacity, electricity, voltage and Cos (Phi). Data are read automatically into the system and can be consulted online in the customer’s existing energy management system.
As the application runs as a web service, the software can be integrated with existing monitoring systems, enabling the system to operate independent of supplier and offer availability from all existing platforms.
I-Real implemented a pilot in 2013 to generate real-time measurement data for Liander. Liander was positive about the results and the cooperation, and the project was continued.
