The most comprehensive picture of Energy Management in 360 degrees. From Energy Monitoring through Energy Control, Energy Management (PDCA) to Energy Optimization.

Solution Overview

Have you ever thought about personalizing your success in real-time? Werusys has been on the market since 1995 and as an OSIsoft Partner since 1999. For more than 20 years, our management systems have been helping our customers increase efficiency in production and business processes. Our software solutions have achieved the industry "Best Practice," particularly in relation to the IS0 50001. We connect industry's real-time infrastructure (PI System) with its BI (incl. heterogeneous data bases). Thanks to the four column concept, our solutions reduce our customers' production costs. (Energy) Monitoring visualizes the parameters on the basis of the company model (PI AF), which is based on the real-time visualization capabilities of PI Vision and PI WebParts. The (Energy) Controlling unit aggregates the parameters to KPIs. It monitors energy and material flows in Sankey diagrams and analyzes the annual company goals and targets. The (Energy) Management unit manages the companys' goals and guides our customers through the combination of Action management and audits to the implementation of an (Energy) Management System for ISO 50001 certification. In addition to the company model, our solutions manage networks for Solver in the optimization unit leading to savings in consumption and an increase in efficiency.

The software runs as a web application in a browser. werusys have the solution that is able to turn our customers’ success in achieving their goals into meaningful KPIs and reports without the customers’ needing to surrender ownership of their data. Due to the increased transparency of production parameters, our customers have been able to reduce energy costs by 800 k€/year. Support of the (re-) certification processes by means of automatic reporting and audit evaluation enables our customer to better use their subject matter Expertise. The German Federal Office of Economics and Export Control (BAFA) has listed the werusys Energy Management System “EnergyCenter” on its »list of eligible energy management software«. Thus, the werusys EnMS is one of only 77 current systems, which are classified as »eligible for the directive of the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology to promote energy management systems of 22 July 2013«. The total amount of the grants can be a maximum of EUR 20,000 per 36 months.
