GridPoint and Electracom Projects Form Channel Partnership in the United Kingdom

GridPoint, 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 submetering technology

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 sustainability goals.

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.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
