Energy Management Software

Energy-Centered Maintenance

Monitoring and managing energy efficiently are essential to establish a sustainable environment. In this regard, Energy-Centered Maintenance (ECM) is an energy management software with an innovative and sustainable approach to reduce energy consumption and wastage. To do that, ECM ensures that excess energy usage or any energy wastage can be monitored through signals that will indicate the need for maintenance or repairs. 

ECM involves six essential steps:

  • Identifying energy-related equipment
  • Collecting data and predicting baseline energy use
  • Developing an ECM inspection plan
  • Monitoring equipment performance and comparing it to the baseline, with deviations prompting a root cause analysis
  • Selecting necessary maintenance actions to restore efficiency
  • Improving maintenance plans
Energy-Centered Maintenance

With an overall accuracy in measurement, high-quality, and reliable technology; ECM’s potential to make a difference is substantial. According to one of the recent case study, ECM can reduce energy consumption by up to 30%. Considering the fact that 60% of global electricity is used by motor-driven machinery, any wastage can significantly increase the consumption of energy. Hence, ECM can optimize the power consumption. Its hardware solution of a wireless IIoT-based sensor features a large battery, and gather diverse data, such as acoustic emission and vibration. While its software solution automates prediction and prescription, detects anomalies with high accuracy, diagnoses faults confidently, and predicts failure meticulously.

Frequently Asked Questions

RCM focuses on keeping machines operational, while ECM emphasizes on reducing energy consumption and identifying any potential issue. In this way, ECM can offer higher ROI by reducing energy usage and can become a cost-efficient solution in the long run compared to its RCM counterpart.

Let’s consider a scenario where a pump with an impeller imbalance worked for two and a half years without any catastrophic failure despite the imbalance. The defect like impeller imbalance increased the overall energy consumption by 7%, leading to a loss of $100,000 due to additional energy costs. In such a situation, earlier detection could have prevented the loss. This clearly indicates that other maintenance strategies might be more efficient than RCM in a scenario like this.

There are four types of maintenance programs such as;

  • Reactive which is running equipment until failure and then replacing it.
  • Preventive where regular maintenance is planned, regardless of the machine’s condition.
  • Predictive where maintenance is done basis recommendation as per the diagnosis of the machine’s current condition.
  • Prescriptive where proper action is taken basis the identification of the root cause of the problem.

Organizations should consider adopting ECM over RCM when reducing energy costs and enhancing sustainability are primary objectives. ECM is particularly beneficial in industries where energy consumption is a significant operational expense, such as manufacturing, utilities, and transportation. By focusing on energy efficiency improvements and sustainable practices, ECM can offer long-term cost savings and environmental benefits. In contrast, RCM remains suitable for industries prioritizing equipment reliability and uptime, where the primary goal is to minimize unplanned downtime and maximize asset performance through strategic maintenance planning based on criticality and risk assessment.

ECM focuses on optimizing energy consumption across industrial processes and equipment. By implementing energy-saving technologies, optimizing operational parameters, and reducing wastage, ECM directly contributes to lowering greenhouse gas emissions and overall environmental impact.
