Siemon Continues Its Environmental Commitment with Advanced Energy Analytics
July 24, 2017. Watertown, CT — Siemon, a leading global network infrastructure specialist, today announced the addition of a new energy analytics platform at its global headquarters and manufacturing facilities in Watertown, Conn. In conjunction with local utility Eversource, Siemon deployed the RTIS® analytics platform from Artis Energy Intelligence that delivers real-time visibility and insight into energy use to help meet its world class sustainability goals.
Siemon has long been committed to sustainability and has been a driving force in support of environmental policies and conservation. As the greenest cabling manufacturer in the industry with an ISO 14001:2015 environmental management certification and 179% negative carbon footprint across all global operations, the deployment of the RTIS® energy analytics platform expands Siemon’s environmental commitment by identifying operational improvements and opportunities to further reduce energy consumption.
“In 2014, we added a building automation system to our manufacturing facilities, and from that we determined where our power loads were going,” says John Buckley, plant engineering and facilities manager for Siemon. “The Artis Energy analytics system is the missing link that allows us to take this one step further, allowing us to see real-time usage for specific equipment and determine exactly why, where and how much power is being used at any given moment.”
“We are excited to work with a company like Siemon who is committed to sustainability and provide them with the ability to automate their diagnostics and create a long-term data-driven energy strategy,” says Chris Pieper, vice president of marketing for Artis Energy Intelligence. “The system essentially tells us what’s going on behind the meter, analyzing energy usage from the building as a whole all the way down to a particular piece of equipment. It also looks at overall demand and allows systems and equipment to automatically curtail energy usage during expensive peak times to further save money. Our initial analysis has indicated that there is an opportunity for Siemon to save approximately 14% on their total estimated annual electric costs.”
