software for monitoring
and analyzing energy efficiency
The ideal solution to support Energy Managers and anyone else who needs to analyze and manage energy usage to improve consumption efficiency.
The implementation of energy management systems has fast become more important in today’s world to help reach goals to become more efficient and reduce energy consumptions that constitute a large percentage of company costs and building management. Pro.Energy© aids Energy Managers and other users in analyzing company consumption in order to manage energy efficiency through valid decision-making strategies.
The implementation of severe norms have led companies to adopt new standards of energy efficiency defined, for example, by the recent ISO-50001 normative relating to the Energy Management standards or EN-15232 on energy classification. Progea’s Pro.Energy© is the software used for monitoring and optimizing energy efficiency to allow companies to reduce energy costs by analysing consumptions and applying efficiency concepts to obtain a significant return in costs reducing the impact of every waste on the environmental. Pro.Energy© is a Movicon functional model that is used to connect to the meters deployed in the different energy sectors to measure consumptions in real-time and record them on database to analyse the Energy Key Performance Indicators (EnKPI). By analytically calculating each type of energy consumption, you will be able to reduce loss in those areas indicated to increase energy efficiency and gain a rapid return on investment.
Pro.Energy© is a simple and effective solution based on open, reliable and flexible technologies.
Pro.Energy© is a functional Movicon module that enables you to connect a diverse range of meters installed in various types of energy carriers to measure consumptions in real-time, record and aggregate them in a relational database (SQL Server). This data can then be analyzed by time range, carrier or cost center by comparing the different time ranges, values or manufacturing sites, independently from the deriving data source. This will greatly aid those in charge to make the right decisions and quickly put the appropriate corrective measures in to action. Pro.Energy© offers safe and efficient connectivity tools that collect real-time information. A configuration wizard assists the user to associate data and create databases automatically and safely to instantly create Energy Analysis projects with immediate effect. The solution is also open to customization for field communications, displaying measures and analytical reports. In addition to bidirectional connections to managerial systems the predisposed ODBC connectors also enable the creation of simple MES solutions by cross-referencing consumption data with production data.

What the advantages of using this product?
Simple, fast and cost-effective
Pro.Energy has been designed to be simple and fast. All- inclusive and ready- to- use with installation providing wizards to automatically create your monitoring projects with SQL Server calculation database, dashboards and energy analysis reports included. Use the configuration Wizard to select field variables and automatic creation of data collection databases. Analysis project configured in just a few clicks.
Connectivity and Data Acquisition
The Pro.Energy© architecture features the Movicon connectivity technology that allows you to connect to any measuring device, network analyzer, multimeter, counter, PLC and others. Drivers, such as Modbus, BacNet and many others are ready for use and are simple to configure. The system also consents IIoT connectivity using specific protocols. The OPC UA Client and Server technology also provides maximum openness towards managerial and IT systems. Pro.Energy is an open architecture and hardware independent software solution that consents to the integration of any measuring tool used in the company.
The Pro. Energy© module displays collected data on dashboards in real-time. The dashboard graphics are pleasant to look at and show indicators and operating status in the most transparent way possible. Operators can easily control production processes at any time and place thanks to the graphical interface’s Web feature. The dashboard interface has been designed according to the demands of modern ergonomics. However, it can be completely customized as needed by integrating the most advanced management and command functions hence transforming the module to function as a supervisor to all effect.
Energy Performance Indicators
Pro.Energy© offers the use of integrated analysis tools, based on all-inclusive and ready-to-use reports, charts and tables. The Energy Performance Indicators (EnPIs) are essential to effective consumption analysis. They are the only means to obtain efficient energy use by reducing or removing the waste detected through analysis. Pro.Energy© collects all energy vector data, stores them on database to analyze with ready-to-use and purpose-designed reports, charts and tables that can be customized to your every need using simple and simple and reliable technology. In addition to recording real energy measures, the system also permits the recording of virtual measures that can be freely defined by the user. This will allow you to run comparisons on real behavior verses virtue measures, or use the virtual measures to manage and distribute energy logic groups, for example by summing up specific meters. Energy Managers and operators can get sophisticated and powerful analytical reports with all the information they need to quickly and clearly detect waste and remove it.
Meters and Measures
Pro.Energy allows you to create measures resulted from different meters to get reports cand chard based on the logic grouping desired. Virtue Measures can also be used and are energy consumption values defined by the user by means of data combinations between measures and calculations or mathematical formula. These theoretical or virtual energy consumption values are essential when needing making analytical comparisons with real measures.
Pro.Energy© is a complete, flexible and comprehensible solution to use for certifying your energy consumptions. The need to reduce energy consumption does not only affect high energy using companies. In today’s world other companies are paying much more attention to reducing energy consumption as well. This is because energy is the factor that makes the greatest impact on company running costs. However, by becoming energy efficient, the company not only saves on bills but also plays a crucial role in energy rationalization in general that as an ethical principle of sustainability can only do good for the company image. These are not the only reasons why monitoring energy makes good sense. Companies who actually monitor their energy consumptions have access to government and energy company incentives as a result. Therefore, energy efficiency is a very cost-effective investment all round. In addition to this, the ever stringent normatives now penalize high energy user companies or oblige them to adopt the appropriate tools to redue consumption and CO2 emissions.
Openness and Integration
Pro.Energy© is a Movicon.NExT functional module offering you the maximum openness to supervision, alarm and notification, control logic for load unlatching, client modular architecture, server and web access integration. By integrating the powerful features of Movicon will transform your energy monitoring system into a real and proper supervisor.
