Smart Energy Management

Use Case

Optimize energy consumption and reduce carbon footprint

Dwindling margins in discrete and process manufacturing are forcing manufacturing firms to seek new ways to boost efficiency and profits. As energy costs typically comprise 20-45% of the overall cost structure, these organizations must focus on reducing energy consumption and improving their profit margins.

Energy waste and leakage can be due to several factors including high peak hour usage, lack of real-time monitoring, and even penalties related to non-compliance. Improvement in these areas leads to greater efficiency and reduced costs.

Many industries install smart meters, but don’t always use them to their fullest advantage. Experienced employees may still follow manual procedures for monitoring and optimization rather than trust the newer technology. When energy readings are not real-time, key information can be overlooked and savings opportunities missed. 

We have a solution

Visualize and optimize energy consumption with real-time monitoring dashboard

“This solution use case is provided by Persistent Systems Limited, a MindSphere® Gold partner. The Smart Energy Management solution on MindSphere offers a dashboard with real-time monitoring, providing valuable insights into consumption patterns, demand and expenditures.”

Visibility into energy consumption including real-time alerts for significant deviations helps to reduce CO2 emissions, predict machine health, and minimize waste and leakage. In addition, manufacturers can often take advantage of demandbased tariffs for further savings. 


  • Real-time visibility into energy consumption at a granular level.
  • Real-time notifications of anomalies, and alerts for significant deviations in consumption patterns.
  • Multiple service provider support for complex environments.


  • Reduction in energy expenditure and improved profit margins.
  • Rapid ROI. 
  • Predictive machine health.
