Serious Materials Releases Energy Management Software; Helps Commercial Buildings Cut Energy Cost
SeriousEnergy Manager joins long list of Energy Management Software
To help commercial buildings make the most of their energy resources, Serious Materials announced last Monday the release of their energy management software, known as SeriousEnergy Manager. This energy management software can utilize historical information about a building combined with current energy usage to help commercial building managers analyze the building's energy use and pinpoint areas where they can reduce power consumption. Since "smart grid" technology is becoming a standard in many homes, estimated to reach 28 million by 2015, commercial properties are taking the cue, and companies like Serious Materials say they can help shave 5 to 15% off power bills once their energy management software is installed.
The Serious Materials SeriousEnergy Manager has plenty of competition, with even NASA working with companies to develop energy management software. Serious Materials CEO Kevin Surace said the SeriousEnergy Manager software gives their customers "the ability to manage, analyze, and maintain real energy savings on an ongoing basis." Unlike other energy management software packages, the SeriousEnergy Manager focuses more on optimizing energy usage rather than simply monitoring the current level. Serious Materials claims one of their customers has already cut their energy use 18% with their SeriousEnergy Manager energy management software.
