OSIsoft, Schneider Electric to deliver real-time energy management solutions

OSIsoft and Schneider Electric formed a strategic technology agreement to provide a 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.

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.

Schneider Electric’s EcoStruxure active energy management architecture portfolio offers a single point of access that connects 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 IT assets, including PCs and other IT devices. StruxureWare is the software backbone that connects Schneider Electric’s comprehensive EcoStruxure energy management architecture portfolio. From a single point of access, it provides intelligent monitoring, automation, planning and reporting on critical facility management systems.

OSIsoft’s PI System will be a component of monitoring and managing energy consuming assets and empowering data-driven decisions through the StruxureWare Software suite.

As part of the overall relationship with Schneider Electric, OSIsoft has a technical partnership with Telvent, a Schneider Electric company. Telvent embeds OSIsoft’s products within their solution using a value added approach as part of a comprehensive globally offering.
