Increasing energy efficiency and meeting DIN EN ISO 50001 requirements with INSYS icom and Optenda GmbH

Regensburg, 20.08.2019 INSYS icom, a leading supplier of technology for industrial data communication and networking, and Optenda GmbH, provider of solutions for monitoring energy consumption and processes in the corporate environment, are pooling their know-how. Their joint solution enables companies to implement an energy management system (EnMS) which conforms to DIN EN ISO 50001, in order to continuously improve internal processes and systems and achieve their energy targets. The cooperation is therefore contributing significantly towards increased energy efficiency and improved climate protection management.

Rising energy prices, intensified competition as well as statutory requirements relating to mandatory energy audits under the new Energy Services Act EDL-G and tax refunds under § 10 of the Electricity Tax Act (“Peak balancing”, Efficiency System Directive) make energy management obligatory for many companies.

If the VPN routers and IoT gateways of the current INSYS icom series are already in use in buildings or technical facilities, energy management can be easily implemented. This is because the Optenda GmbH software is executed directly on the existing hardware, and sends the data collected by the router directly to its energy management portal. There the energy efficiency can be analysed and evaluated. “This saves our customers an additional router and consequently the management and maintenance of a further hardware component. Thanks to this partnership with Optenda GmbH, they can now improve the energy efficiency of their machines, systems and buildings as a supplement to existing applications. In this way they expand their existing data technology. They are gradually taking the path of digitalisation in line with our principle of step-by-step IoT,” states Wolfgang Wanner, Senior Manager for Sales & Business Development at INSYS icom.

This also applies the other way around: with the devices from INSYS icom, companies that wish to implement further applications for their energy management now or in the future in addition to the software from Optenda GmbH are already well positioned today. For example, in addition to energy management, remote maintenance of machines and systems can be set up as well as – in the next step – status monitoring with an alarm function in the event of a fault.
