SoFi has proven integration capabilities with several 3rd party systems including SAP, Building Management Systems, SCADA as well as certain legacy systems for data input in up to 15 minute intervals. PE INTERNATIONAL and its partners offer various levels of integration support with energy metering and management systems. SoFi for enterprise energy management can also automatically import your utility bills for consumption and energy cost information in the absence of metered data or offer flexible questionnaire technologies for manual data capture
Understand the implications of your energy use in terms of primary energy consumption, resource depletion, exposure to fossil and nuclear power and many other indicators by leveraging extended regional and technology specific characterizations from our sustainability databases.
SoFi comes packed a wealth of energy performance assessment tools including its energy efficiency benchmarking platform with over 15,000 curated benchmarks from several third parties such as the US Department of Energy and our proprietary GaBi Databases for energy efficiency in production processes. Through our data on demand services, high-quality customized content can be delivered based on your specific benchmark requirements. The platform also helps you manage your own benchmarks and use them more effectively for performance analysis.
SoFi software for energy management enables detailed analysis of process energy and material efficiencies by integrating with our product and process sustainability software GaBi. Advanced modelling capabilities combined with tailored model content and live data allow you to analyze multiple scenarios simultaneously in order to find the most effective energy efficiency improvement measures.
Performance targets can be set at corporate, individual site levels or on suppliers against which improvement programs or actions are can be developed and managed. Actions can be evaluated using automatically generated cost abatement curves which display the cost-effectiveness of improvement projects along with their saving potential and can be used to find low-hanging fruit throughout your organization. The Best Practice Library is PE INTERNATIONAL’s peer-based suggestion engine for improvement projects. The suggested actions are derived from several curated sources including the US Department of Energy, the German EPA and proprietary PE content and deliver sector and region specific implementation costs, success rate within companies as well as overall reduction for hundreds of improvement projects.
Advanced non-linear forecasting capabilities delivered through our Project Portfolio Planner can be used to assess future performance scenarios based on your targets and identified improvement projects enabling the development of actionable energy improvement plans, quickly and cost effectively.
