an innovator in comprehensive, data-driven energy
management systems (EMS) that enable customers to optimize energy
savings, facility efficiency and sustainability agendas, is pleased to
announce Electracom Projects, a building management systems (BMS)
specialist based in the United Kingdom, as an international extension of
GridPoint’s channel partner program. Electracom’s installation and BMS
combined with GridPoint’s submetering and monitoring technology allows
UK enterprises to enhance energy conscious behaviour through innovative
sensoring, cloud-based big data analytics and intelligent control.
New regulations and rising energy costs prompt adoption of
Electracom and GridPoint’s strategic partnership opens new opportunities
for both companies to provide effective energy and sustainability
management for enterprises as the United Kingdom prepares for the
implementation of the EU Energy Efficiency Directive in 2015, which will
require a programme of regular energy audits.
“With costs of energy steadily rising in the United Kingdom and the
impending changes in government regulations within the energy industry
fast approaching, Electracom surveyed the market and saw a need to
employ next-generation energy management solutions to help businesses
gain control through submetering, monitoring and cloud-based big data
analytics,” says director Kerry Overman of Electracom. “GridPoint’s
vision is to deliver Internet of Things technology specific to energy;
transforming how commercial, government and educational enterprises
reduce energy expenses and carbon emissions, which they have
successfully proven with their impressive customer base.”
Energy management solutions bring data-driven visibility to usage
Todd M. Raba, president and CEO of GridPoint, says of the partnership,
“GridPoint is excited to further our business in the United Kingdom with
the assistance of Electracom. Their extensive energy industry experience
and installation skills position us to assist UK enterprises as they
adapt to new energy regulations and manage escalating energy prices.”
The GridPoint solution submeters individual energy-consuming assets and
monitors environmental conditions, sends the data to a cloud-based
platform and provides real-time visibility, big data analytic
capabilities and dynamic control over energy usage, carbon emissions and
critical facility performance. Electracom’s expertise in BMS, automatic
controls and electrical installation helps bring these innovative
solutions to United Kingdom businesses and government agencies aiming to
save money, reduce carbon, enhance customer comfort and achieve
GridPoint’s savings demonstrated in North American retailers
GridPoint solutions have delivered proven results through the
combination of data-driven, real-time, asset-level submetering with
Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) analytics. With GridPoint’s submetering
devices in place, a big box retailer identified 249 issues across 1,100
stores, including unnecessary energy expenses, malfunctioning HVAC and
lighting systems and freezer and cooler inventory losses. Additionally,
a convenience store operator saves 22% annually per site in energy and
capital expenses by monitoring HVAC performance and detecting
malfunctions before damaging outages occur.
