June 22, 2004 by Jeff Shepard

Power Measurement Ltd. (Victoria, BC, Canada) announced its web-based ION® enterprise energy management (EEM) software, which is designed to help large energy consumers reduce energy-related business risks by controlling energy and operations costs, enabling better procurement strategies and maintaining reliability. Optimized for commercial office and retail property applications, ION EEM offers key performance indicators, plus benchmarking, forecasting and control capabilities that can also benefit universities, industrial and research facilities, health centers, and utilities seeking to boost profits and productivity.

Backed by Power Measurement’s ION intelligent metering hardware, and fully compatible with legacy meters and automation systems, ION EEM’s browser-based "dashboard" delivers timely and actionable information. The software automatically collects meter data and continuously analyzes, aggregates, normalizes and reports enterprise-wide consumption for electricity and all other utilities. Weather, real-time pricing and other relevant data feeds can be integrated with the system. The software automatically validates energy data and all other data feeds to ensure that information is trustworthy and accurate for bill verification and tenant sub-billing purposes. Advanced trend-analysis functions compare consumption and costs over time by location, building or process.
