EnergyCAP & Smart Meters

You can track electronic (“smart”) meter interval data

Interval (Time-Series) Data

EnergyCAP provides a process to import and analyze meter interval data for detailed energy consumption analysis. You can track electronic (“smart”) meter interval data (usually 15, 30 or 60-minute intervals), other electric meter channels (KVAR, power factor, current, voltage, etc.), and any time-series data including volume, occupancy, or weather conditions.

In addition, EnergyCAP also provides options for charting, auditing, aggregating, and analyzing the data. You can also associate production with energy use to calculate energy used per hotel room visit, or per manufactured widget. EnergyCAP has a flexible import wizard that enables you to import delimited files from any metering system.

Meter Data Converter and Scheduler

The EnergyCAP Meter Data Converter and Scheduler (MDCS) enables users to automate and schedule the querying, formatting, and importing of meter reading data from a metering system into the EnergyCAP database. Users can create custom meter queries and schedule the queries to run via a Windows® scheduled task or batch file. Using an ODBC or SQL Server database connection, MDCS connects to a metering system’s database (for example, Schneider Electric’s ION system), and queries a range of meter reading data. MDCS then produces a CSV file to be imported by EnergyCAP’s imptsk.exe processor.

Using MDCS’s Profile Manager, users can set up details of the reformatting processes, specifying the SQL query used to retrieve the data from the source database, the columns to output, and various formatting operations to perform. Properly configured, MDCS makes it possible to flow interval data from the source database into EnergyCAP with no user interaction. The import can be scheduled at regular time intervals (15, 30, 60 minutes, monthly, etc.) to deliver the most current data for reports.

Properly configured, MDCS makes it possible to flow interval data from the source database into EnergyCAP with no user interaction. The scheduled import can run on any time interval (15, 30, 60 minutes, monthly, etc.) desired.

Meter Data Import

EnergyCAP energy analysis software provides an import process for submeter data for detailed consumption analysis and bill verification. You can track electric meter channels, such as KVAR, power factor, current, and voltage. Then you can use the imported data to verify accuracy of vendor-issued bills. EnergyCAP has a flexible import wizard that enables you to import delimited files from any metering system.

EnergyCAP's Exclusive PowerViews

PowerViews are exclusive EnergyCAP presentment features that place the most important energy data at your fingertips

PowerViews™

PowerViews are exclusive EnergyCAP presentment features that place the most important energy data at your fingertips in the form of accessible charts and graphs. PowerViews are provided with their accompanying data tables, and are automatically displayed and dynamically updated. Chart and table data can be copied to the Windows® Clipboard with a mouse click, and then pasted into other applications for external reporting.

The PowerViews located throughout EnergyCAP provide a snapshot of cost, unit cost, and consumption for any meter, building, or department of your organization. This type of presentation enables you to quickly spot energy issues, trends, and savings possibilities.

 

Project Tracking

Project tracking features in EnergyCAP help you report the energy and cost savings from your energy management projects. You can characterize the types of projects, their start and completion dates, cost of the installation, any rebate information, and the anticipated or actual energy and cost savings from the project. The tracking feature automatically charts completed projects on EnergyCAP’s Energy Use Intensity (EUI) graph so it is easy to see how they are impacting organization energy consumption.

EnergyCAP offers Reports, Charts, & Graphs

EnergyCAP displays utility information in multiple ways and formats, with more than 250 useful reports

Reports, Charts, & Graphs

EnergyCAP displays utility information in multiple ways and formats, with more than 250 useful reports, charts, and graphs. Report categories include: analytics, billing, budget, cost avoidance, ENERGY STAR, greenhouse gas, invoice, production, weather, calendarized, normalized, and year-to-year. You can export EnergyCAP reports to a variety of file formats including Excel®, PDF, HTML, as well as several others. Each report is individually customizable using a wide variety of data filtering options.


Quick Reports, which are context-sensitive report lists integrated into a number of EnergyCAP modules and pre-configured with often-used filters, can save you time by helping you produce the most popular reports associated with each level of your data TreeViews. Your report library will continue to grow as your Saved, Recommended, and Configurable report lists grow. EnergyCAP also provides online samples of all reports, which can be accessed using the Sample Report Viewer.

TreeView-Based Navigation

EnergyCAP uses and intuitive and user-friendly hierarchical structure for presenting utility data for meters, buildings, broader organization divisions, accounts and cost centers. These hierarchies are flexible and user-configurable, and provide a cohesive structure for sharing reports based on the hierarchies. TreeViews enable you to set up the EnergyCAP database to mirror your unique organizational structure. You can also administrate individual user permissions based on the TreeView organization. This simplifies and secures the database by limiting user access to data based on needs and job roles.
