The Energy Efficiency Map
The logic flow that leads to the comprehensive optimization
ENERGY EFFICIENCY STRATEGY
Companies’ Functions define and update their high level Strategic Plans to match external and internal expectations in terms of markets’ evolution, final customers’ requests, need to achieve operational excellence and optimize costs.

ENERGY EFFICIENCY PLAN
The level of Project definition and planning takes into account all high level inputs and synthesizes them in a layered and detailed path of optimization that aims at balancing interventions on assets and processes to upgrade the overall system’s performances.
MAIN SITE OPTIMIZATION
Goals require close monitoring and control to be guaranteed and achieved. Ouvert applies a two-dimensional approach to detect possible efficiency losses in all components of the managed implementation plans. This means merging advanced analysis methodologies and automation.
Ouvert’s Energy Data Scientists and Engineers have itemized our scope of work in the Energy Efficiency Map. It is a simplified vision of how cost and consumption, asset management and energy efficiency management, infrastructures and energy related processes can be gathered. This comprehensive approach can be applied to achieve an extended Performance Management.
The map is an intuitive structure that leads to the definition of the services provided by Ouvert through a logical path that starts from the energy strategic layer definition and reaches the Performance Monitoring Layer, the closest to the operating scenario in which infrastructures and processes are managed. The map is Ouvert’s way to comprehend all applicable measures either on assets or managing processes to recover efficiency in a specified environment. It is a way of defining a backbone to secure financial saving and performances targets.
Energy Related Processes Management
The more mature and over layered the management of the infrastructures becomes the more transparency, data analysis, validation of achieved saving targets become complementary sides of the same operating scenario. Ouvert has inquired and researched the Energy related Processes that are performed to:
The aim is that of understanding how automation can smooth operations and reduce manual intervention that can be source of errors and being so resources-consuming that at the end a whole set of checks or calculations are not executed because they could take ages or simply do not deliver any result in due time. Ouvert has developed a specific portfolio of services and IT solutions to provide customers with advisory and tools to lessen and reduce the complexity of Administration, Finance and Operations tasks. Energy Related Processes are at the same time:
The winning combination: energy efficient infrastructures and optimized management
Ouvert’s Teams are devoted to the interception of inefficiencies all through customers’ organizations, managed assets, applied procedures and IT ecosystems.
The experience cumulated by Ouvert’s Pros has clearly pointed out that engaging a multi-targeted efficiency recovery evolution to improve:
is the winning approach that sums up cost savings contributions and facilitates the continuous improvement.
Incentives such as White Certificates (Energy Savings Certificate (ESC)/Energy Efficiency Credit (EEC)) and Certifications are no longer stand alone targets almost exclusively obtained by Infrastructural Interventions. In fact, aligning efficiency measures on infrastructures, technological equipments and control systems creates the integrated layer of ENERGY and PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT that provides support to all stakeholders. Ouvert has developed its Portfolio of Solutions to enable the integrated layer in different environments interacted by different stakeholders. (see Solutions and Projects).
Contributions to systemic improvement are sensitive to environments, businesses, regulations, companies’ visions and market trends. Ouvert’s Teams tailor ad hoc Plans to sustain the evolution. Ouvert’s Solutions’ Panel also defines a whole set of features to exploit all available data and upgrade calculations and monitoring.
