DUBLIN, IRELAND -- (Marketwired) -- 10/15/13 -- The benefits of Vodafone's Energy Data Management (EDM) solution have been outlined in a new white paper, which is now available for free download via the company's machine-to-machine (M2M) microsite.
The EDM solution is helping organisations monitor energy efficiency at a detailed level -- managing energy consumption is important for organisations operating across multiple sites.
Energy Data Management is perfect for companies in retail, manufacturing, the public sector and for any organisation that has many energy suppliers, different types of contracts and bills. In these situations, an overall picture of energy usage is difficult to achieve.
Without the right information, at a detailed level, it can be tough to understand the best solution, especially when you're operating across hundreds of sites internationally.
Individually, each system that uses power might be using just a few hundred watts. But over the year and across multiple sites, these power costs add up. It is an M2M solution that can give you essential information so you can make better decisions about energy-efficiency policies, processes and technology.
Vodafone has now been monitoring its energy consumption for over 10 years and has smart meters installed in 40,000 base stations -- with a plan to extend the implementation of EDM in the future. The company has also started to deploy the solution to large offices and other sites consuming large amounts of energy. Around 60% of Vodafone's energy consumption was spread across more than 230,000 base stations, 25% on data centres, and 15% on offices and retail sites.
Vodafone's white paper outlines the benefits of the Energy Data Management solution, as well as more regarding reducing energy consumption. The white paper can be viewed here.
