Schneider Electric launches performance analytics suite

Energy management firm Schneider Electric launched Performance Analytics, a new suite of functionality within its StruxureWare Resource Advisor software platform.

Resource Advisor has helped more than 4,500 clients with over 20,000 users across 130 countries manage more than $30 billion in energy spending.

This functionality builds on Resource Advisor’s already powerful set of capabilities, which includes the ability to monitor energy and carbon markets, manage sustainability metrics and report results to stakeholders on more than 400 types of resource streams, including utility and facility data, weather data, and water and energy usage.

Performance Analytics now allows Resource Advisor users to collect, visualize, and analyze near-real-time interval data from a variety of sources, in context of this enterprise-wide view of their data.

Performance Analytics allows for data collection and integration from multiple sources, simplifying visualization and analysis of interval data, while reducing the cost of data acquisition. Leveraging Schneider Electric’s founding membership with the Green Button Association, Schneider Electric can collect data straight from the utility, bypassing the need for on-site meters and software.

Schneider Electric can also tap into existing utility relationships to obtain interval data, or data can be obtained from a variety of meter, submeter or BMS data, which may exist on-site or can be installed. This flexibility enables customers to choose the most cost-effective way to develop a complete picture of their consumption, whether at the site-level or across their enterprise.
