Greentech Lead America: Schneider Electric has signed a technology agreement with OSIsoft, a provider of infrastructure technology for real-time data and events, to provide an innovative and comprehensive energy management solution.

The joint solution combines Schneider Electric’s energy management expertise with the streaming data and event management capabilities of OSIsoft’s PI System.

The OSIsoft PI System infrastructure is widely used in many industries to gain reliable access to operational and manufacturing data. The data is leveraged by enterprises to drive operational excellence, provide situational awareness and tackle global enterprise mandates such as energy management and more globally, sustainability.

Schneider Electric will offer the solution, which provides a way to collect, store and aggregate large volumes of a data with high speed access for analytics via the StruxureWare software suite, to building owners and managers, architects, and IT Managers.

“The integration of the PI System capabilities into Schneider Electric’s StruxureWare software suite will produce a number of specific technology solutions addressing markets such as mining and minerals processing, waste and waste water and food and beverage, and green buildings,” said Pascal Brosset.

“We will be leveraging OSIsoft’s tools across many of our software applications as we deliver customized energy management solutions for our customers around the globe,” Brosset added.

Schneider Electric’s comprehensive EcoStruxure active energy management architecture portfolio offers a single point of access that connects five domains of business expertise – power, data centers, process and machines, building control, and physical security – all within an open and flexible technology framework.

The EcoStruxure architecture is focused on managing all energy-consuming building assets, such as HVAC, lighting, security and reducing energy waste generated from Information Technology assets, including PCs, and other IT devices.

“Rising energy costs and increased environmental concerns have made energy efficiency an imperative for every business. Effective energy management requires a high fidelity view of where and how energy and other resources are consumed; the PI System provides this view,” said Martin Otterson, senior vice president of sales, marketing, and industry at OSIsoft.

“Whether you run a traditional or high tech factory, manage local or distributed facilities, operate a data center or other energy intensive businesses, this collaboration will deliver a comprehensive energy management solution that combines the strengths of both companies to address the global challenge of energy management and sustainability,” Otterson added.
