Compressed Air is one of the forms of energy that finds use in most industries, in some industries like Textiles it contributes to significant portion of the overall energy consumption.
Compressed Air Networks i.e. multiple number of compressors operating in tandem, offer potential for optimisation and improve energy productivity CFM/KW by around 5%-7% (in some cases going as high as ~12%)
Multiple factors must be looked at while considering optimising the generation and distribution of Compressed Air and the overall network.
CAN- Compressed Air Network Optimisation Algorithm
Our Algorithm works on the operational data I.e. data from each of the compressor, operating behaviour and over a period suggests optimisation possibilities resulting in better utilisation of the network, correct operation settings, resulting in energy productivity gains.
Factors/Aspects considered by the algorithm:-
- Weather Conditions
- Set Points for each compressor
- Operational behaviour of each compressor under the influence of the network.
Algorithm would be available on EE Hub, users could either purchase API calls or use the algorithm as DIY tool through our web based application EnView.
Over the last few months we have seen organisations investing or deciding to invest in suite of web and mobile applications to manage data and automate part of reporting process when it comes for scaled #EnergyEfficiency or #CleanerProduction focused programmes. 3 things that one must consider before deciding in selecting the right vendor:
1. Thought Leadership
Use of #AI or simply put series of logics to automate certain processes is evolving, there is a lot of noise when it comes to people talking about it. One must decide to work with partners that have worked on similar applications before and have had the habit of innovating in the domain.
2. It’s not about IT
Developing an application or designing a form is not the important part. What the system does and how it helps is important? Some of the potential benefits that must come from such a system is reduced project management costs, standardisation etc? So if your vendor has not delivered it before there are chances that it they might fall short again.
3. Business Model Innovation
Such applications have to evolve every day so that they can last for 4-5 years, hence it is important to consider innovative business models before embarking on the “product” development. Vendor with core interest in such applications is best suited as against to a conventional “Developer”
EnergyTech Ventures is an emerging company that has the largest portfolio in the #DataHub Space with it’s application in the #EnergyEfficiency and #CleanerProduction programmes being used by 100+ factories in 6+ countries. We have helped organisations reduce the operation costs by around 30% when it comes to data crunching, validation and reporting.

Greetings of the day!
A year back i saw a video of Steve Singh, he was talking on the context of "micro-services" and how large technology companies want to leverage that to have more customers and more importantly more revenue/customer.
That's when we started to work on our Energy Efficiency Micro-Services Hub (releasing on 8th September, 2017 on the sidelines of #EDASummit17). We open up our existing IPs (via APIs) as we continue to focus on developing more such IPs.
Interestingly our first #B2B engagement based (Cement Sector) on #API pricing has got a green signal. Our efforts of enabling more value creation in the #IoT ecosystem gets a boost and encourages us to continue to take our top of the value chain approach.
I look forward to seeing you at #EDASummit17 and having an engaging discussion. Visit www.haveyouAIRed.com for more details/registration.
For large enterprises, scale and complexity of handling energy/process data play a crucial role while designing the Integrated Energy Data Analytics Strategy.
Take a look at this Infographic to know more about our first #Enterprise grade #EDA project!
We will share our experience of developing such an integrated EDA projects at the #EDASummit 2017.
