The proprietary solution is a data acquisition and analytics system that employs non-intrusive clip-on current transformers which are easily installed at electrical distribution boards. This enables AI algorithms to detect subtle changes and patterns in the electrical signature of each connected asset or device.
Monitoring electrical assets has traditionally been complex and costly, requiring multiple sensors and expensive systems. This has led to widespread under-monitoring, resulting in expensive maintenance and significant energy inefficiencies.
The solution extracts a proprietary set of deep energy data from electrical devices, assets, and machines, and can be easily installed on both new and existing electrical assets or building infrastructure. It offers real-time monitoring and reporting on important metrics such as real-time power usage effectiveness (PUE) and enables automation of sustainability reporting.
The technology offers an industry-changing solution: a non-intrusive cost efficient AI-powered monitoring system that is easy to install. It generates a proprietary data set that fuels machine learning algorithms, enhancing efficiency and reducing total cost of ownership for all connected assets.
The technology owner is seeking test-bedding partnerships with real estate businesses, data centre companies or service providers, facility management businesses.
Opportunities provided by the system
The system can be deployed in many different sectors and locations where electrical assets and infrastructure are not comprehensively monitored or understood. It has been deployed in sectors including data centres, key infrastructure such as wastewater, mining, manufacturing, leisure and office environments.
Typically the system is best suited for real estate companies, companies with facility management responsibilities, building management businesses, carbon reduction companies or building owners who have reasonably sized property portfolios and require a proper insight into their electrical infrastructure.
The solution gathers an unprecedented level of data, simultaneously monitoring thousands of different data points at any one time. The level of granularity provides a rich level of insight hitherto deployed at scale in most sectors.
Typically alternative technologies, such as sensors can be costly, require regular configuration, and are not always part of a scalable solution where things such as condition-based monitoring have to be done on a site-by-site basis as opposed to a learn and deploy model.
