05/2013: Raise potential savings

New and efficient: energy management from the cloud High benefit for users at a minimal cost

Companies can test new solution now available for free

Boeblingen, May 28th 2013. Conventional energy management solutions are usually complicated and expensive, the ratio of costs and benefits sometimes problematic. Many companies therefore are afraid to invest in this area. Until now. Because now they have the chance to get their energy management as a service from the cloud. Quickly, easily and at minimal cost. The solution is called "Energy Management as a Service" short EMaaS, a development of 2b-green. Potential users have the opportunity to test EMaaS free and without obligation under test weeks.

It is without doubt a sensation - and certainly a breakthrough for many companies in energy efficiency: With EMaaS they can make the connections between energy consumption and use of transparent and are thus capable of controlling intervene and save energy. Best of all, EMaaS is provided by cloud. Thus, the solution provides maximum benefits at a low cost. And they can be used quickly and largely without own resources.

EMaaS continuously measures the energy consumption in buildings, data centers, offices and stores - a detailed breakdown of consumers and consumption times. "Companies with distributed locations or with many desk jobs quickly get an overview of where and how much energy is used and where the savings are," says CEO Thomas Denk 2b-green.

The data can be accessed via a web application anywhere, anytime, simply usable analysis tools make the information transparent. The effect of energy saving measures

can be controlled on the trend analysis in real time. A comparison of the consumption performance of different locations is possible, easily.

Efficient solution without its own hardware and software

This all companies can use for themselves, without having to invest in their own hardware and software, without having to provide additional software agents and without significant own resources. The shared infrastructure is that of a supplier. Decisive advantage: the user only pays for the services actually used.

"Energy management from the cloud is the ideal solution to get clear results quickly at minimal cost," said Managing Director Jens Kammerer 2b-green. "The user always automatically access the latest version, and the service can be scaled up easily. By the cloud solution EMaaS is ready within a few days and usable from any browser."

Up to 35 percent savings

With the experience of 2b-green Companies can save already in the first year up to 20 percent of their energy costs with EMaaS. If the savings and efficiency initiatives are implemented correctly, up to 35 percent lower energy costs are permanently feasible - without any restrictions on operational processes or comfort in offices, warehouses or retail stores.

04/2013: More Green Is Cheaper

Professional Energy Management lowers costs 2b-green identifies and addresses potential savings

Companies can save up to 35 percent of their energy costs

Boeblingen, April 18th 2013. After the IT success model “Software as a Service” now comes “Energy Management as a Service” or EMaaS short. The company 2b-green GmbH from Boeblingen, Germany offers this service now available in the market. With EMaaS you can monitor, analyse and reduce energy consumption in companies, stores or other buildings in the simplest manner. This solution provides the basis to save up to 35 percent in energy costs.

Energy is rapidly becoming a significant cost factor for the companies. Therefore, the energy efficiency is not only “a crucial factor for the success of the Energiewende,” as the head of the german Energy Agency dena, Stephan Kohler notes – rather it serves the competitiveness of enterprises. Finally, the energy costs are directly impacting the cost structure and thus the price of products and services. And that – in parallel with the rise in energy costs – with a rising tendency.

However, if SMB or large cooperation, whether hospitals, insurance companies, banks or Retail business with branch structures – for most of these companies their energy consumption so far is unexplored territory.

“In companies, the efficient use of energy already fails because you do not know where and how much energy is used and where the savings are,” explain the 2b- green CEOs Thomas Denk and Jens Kammerer. “To create a quick and uncomplicated remedy, we have developed our product ‘EMaaS’ ”.

EMaaS makes the relationship between energy consumption and usage transparent and thus companies are capable of controlling intervene and save energy. EMaaS enables continuous measurements of energy consumption in buildings, data centers, offices and stores – with a detailed breakdown of consumers and consumption times.

Easy installation

The product developed by 2b-green mainly consists of interfaces to the individual consumer devices, which can be installed quickly and easily by any electrician on site. The data thus collected can be assessed via a web application anywhere, anytime. Practical analysis tools provide users the critical information and identify the top energy consumer, quickly and easily.

“This allows the allocation of the energy costs by cause and create benchmarks that encourage the responsible use of energy,” says Thomas Denk, “even ‘total cost of ownership’, in short TCO considerations, be extended by the component energy costs and therefore more accurate.

With “before and after scenarios” identified EMaaS the greatest saving potential and thus provides the basis for a rapid increase in energy efficiency. The trend analysis makes the impact of saving initiatives visible in real time and thus provides a simple control.

“With EMaaS the user can in the first year of use, conservatively, achieve up to 20 percent saving of its energy costs,” says Jens Kammerer. “If you pick the right saving and efficiency initiatives, according to our calculations, lasting up to 35 percent lower energy costs are possible – without any restrictions of operational processes or convenient limitation in offices, retail stores or warehouses. In this way we support the sustainable management of properties.”
