SAP AG offers a solution enabling companies to more effectively measure, report and consume energy. The desire to reduce environmental impact has driven companies to seek tools enabling them to better aggregate data related to energy consumption. In response, the Industry Value Network group for chemicals worked together to develop enterprise energy management capabilities within the SAP® Environmental Compliance application.
The release of this solution demonstrates SAP's ongoing commitment to delivering solutions to customers that enable a rapid return on investment and the implementation of sustainable business practices. Identifying the need for streamlined emissions management and environmental compliance, the Industry Value Network group for chemicals set out to create a solution that would not only meet the needs of chemicals manufacturers, but can be easily applied to manufacturers in many industries.
The combined strength of the SAP® Manufacturing Integration and Intelligence (SAP MII) application with OSIsoft's PI solution and the SAP Environmental Compliance application developed with TechniData resulted in the enterprise energy management solution. The solution enables companies to gather information on the use of energy, in all its forms, throughout the enterprise, identify areas for energy reduction, monitor the implementation of energy excellence projects, and make the results available throughout the enterprise.
"Energy costs have demanded that electricity, gas and other utilities must be considered as part of the cost of the product," said Dr. Patrick Kennedy, CEO and founder, OSIsoft. "Our customers have been starting to combine real time and event data from our PI product, and business data from SAP to determine where they stand and then, interactively, how to lower the usage of these resources. In many cases, these projects have resulted in significant and sustainable reduction of operating costs. In the current economic climate, customers are finding that the only projects that can affect the bottom line in the near term are those where information drives the savings. We are pleased to collaborate with our partners SAP and TechniData to focus on giving our customers an energy management offering for the entire enterprise that will help them achieve substantial reductions in the cost of their products as well as reduced CO2 emissions."
"Through the use of its energy and emissions management capabilities, SAP Environmental Compliance allows corporations to monitor and reduce energy use, and identify further opportunities to implement energy conservation projects, resulting in lower operating costs and greater benefits to the environment," said Jürgen Schwab, chairman and chief executive officer, TechniData AG. Business solutions that tap into existing technology to enable improved energy consumption and rapid compliance with regulatory requirements are increasingly important.
