Industry 4.0/Enterprise 4.0 are terms that represent the current trend of automation and data exchange in manufacturing technology, leveraged by the Internet of Things, Cloud Computing, Cognitive Computing, Autonomous Robots, Augmented Reality and many other new technological innovations. This concept has been recently extended to any company or industrial group aiming to transform its business model, processes and services thanks to the above technologies.
The EU is stimulating European countries to direct the interest of companies towards this new paradigm, fostering favourable financial and taxation policies which have actually given a significant boost to new projects.
Enterprises started a wide variety of new initiatives in very different areas: manufacturing optimisation and automatisation, additive manufacturing and connected products, etc., but most of them have started initiatives in Energy Efficiency and Optimisation.
In fact, this area sees the convergence of the Industry/Enterprise 4.0 taxation policy benefits and the obligations holding large companies to execute and document energy assessment and optimisation initiatives, requiring actual measures of energy consumption.
Since 2015, Sense Reply has been helping its customer companies to approach Energy Management initiatives and to deploy an IoT Energy Management System, based on the AWS Solution, which can measure, document and manage energy consumption and energy optimisation initiatives.
Sense Reply supports clients in the execution of energy audits and modelling through manufacturing and process analysis, thermographic campaigns and site inspections.
Engineering the sensors/data gateway local network, acquisition of consumption data for electricity, gas, heating/cooling, water, etc.
Implementation of the Sense Reply cloud-based solution enables energy and water monitoring, the use of the AWS platform for Big Data, Machine Learning and energy optimisation.
Energy diagnosis, the discovery of optimisation opportunities, tuning the energy models, advisory services for further optimisation initiatives (i.e. co-generation, renewables, etc.).
Sense Reply is able to take full charge of Energy Management projects relying on an end-to-end approach, thereby guaranteeing an effective benefit.
The implementation of the Energy Management system based on the AWS IoT platform represents the first step of a process aimed at enabling the availability of the Internet of Things, to be leveraged for further IoT use cases of the Industry 4.0/Enterprise 4.0
