Problem statement:

Increased operational costs due to high electricity bill.

Issue:

Monitor and identify root cause of high electricity bill

Summary:

After installation of GENiE, root cause identification was done using AI, and it discovered that the high charges was contributed due to the simultaneous start-up of machines. These machines collectively drew high current to overcome moment of inertia during start-up phase. With GENiE they managed to cut overall electrical usage by 30% via reduction of maximum demand charges. Further savings were achieved when GENiE sent alarms and alerts pre-empting any maximum demand of electricity and machine failure in real time.
