Noveda Launches its First iPad App to Help Industry Monitor Energy & Water Usage


The Company's Building EKG™ application delivers mobile management tools to drive cost savings for all forms of energy, water and solar PV systems

BRANCHBURG, N.J., Oct. 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Noveda Technologies ("Noveda"), the leader in web-based, real-time energy and water monitoring, today launched its Building EKG™ energy and water saving application at the GreenBuild 2011 Expo in Toronto, Canada. This is the first in a series of mobile-based applications developed for business enterprises to better manage renewable energy production, energy consumption and water usage in real-time and will initially be available on Apple devices.

The Building EKG™ application is designed to help  businesses access information anywhere and at any time, enabling key decision makers to make on-demand changes across multiple platforms and at multiple facilities, irrespective of location.  This application combines the capabilities of Noveda's suite of monitoring solutions (EnergyFlow Monitor, SunFlow Monitor®, and Carbon Footprint Monitor), giving an integrated view of all critical energy cost drivers, including electric, gas, steam, and oil, among others.

EnergyFlow Monitor helps organizations identify inefficiencies and waste in energy and water use in buildings.  Customers can use a single dashboard to track and analyze relevant data and in turn, develop action plans to drive better usage and cost savings.  To date, Noveda customers have achieved 15% savings in their energy and water bills, on average.  In addition, Noveda's SunFlow Monitor® provides real-time information on renewable energy production that is normalized for actual solar irradiance and helps businesses better utilize solar technologies.  When combined, these solution sets help drive not only ROI, but also aid companies in their efforts to "go-green."

"With the launch of the Building EKG™ application, Noveda can deliver actionable intelligence on energy and water use not only instantaneously, but via multiple channels to our customers wherever they are located. This helps our customers to take immediate action to reduce their energy and water consumption and maximize renewable energy production," said Joe Jacob, chief technology officer at Noveda.

Jacob added, "Building EKG™ is the first in a suite of tablet PC and smart phone apps that we will be launching to enable our customers to save on energy and water bills, meet sustainability goals and stay ahead of competition and regulation. This new offering addresses the global movement towards mobile internet computing, mobile enterprises and mobile workers.  More and more we see tablet devices being integrated as viable business tools and Noveda wants to be at the forefront of that shift with our clients."

"Currently, we use Noveda's web-based monitoring solutions for all our solar PV plants that we have installed in New Jersey to meet our renewable goals, " said Al Matos, Vice President of Renewables and Energy Solutions at PSE&G. 

"The Building EKG™ application will provide yet another way for our plant managers to get information on operational and maintenance issues, and react immediately, thus maximizing the renewable electricity output from our unmanned plants."

The Building EKG™ application will be available at no charge to new and existing customers of Noveda's monitoring solutions. Prospective customers can view a demo, which shows live energy consumption and production data from the first net-zero commercial electric building in the US.

Noveda will be exhibiting this week at the GreenBuild 2011 Expo in Toronto, Canada at Booth 6814S, from 5:30 p.m. Eastern on Tuesday, October 4 to 5:30 p.m. Eastern on Thursday, October 6.
