Having real-time data is crucial to ensuring energy is being used as efficiently as possible, and one Canadian company is making inroads into that new technology.

Responding to a request for proposal for RTEM systems by the Ontario Education Collaborative Marketplace (OECM) back in August, Kontrol Energy Corp. was recently selected as a contracted supplier, with its RTEM system featuring the use of CircuitMeter as a channel partner.

“We are excited at the prospect of working with our channel partner CircuitMeter to provide robust real-time energy monitoring systems to multiple sectors in the province,” stated Paul Ghezzi, CEO, Kontrol Energy in a company press release. “We see great potential in expanding this solution across Canada’s public sector. In addition, there is significant potential to add our blockchain technology solutions in this new and emerging public-sector channel.”

CircuitMeter Inc., a privately held Canadian firm, has developed patented electrical energy submetering hardware, integrated with its Big Data and cloud based CircuitMonitoring™ enterprise software. According to the Kontrol press release, the advanced energy analytics represents a major step forward in comparison with current practice.

It is designed to analyze real time, circuit level energy usage for large organizations and portfolio managers to identify energy waste and help industrial, commercial and institutional facility owners reduce their energy consumption, costs, and carbon footprint.

With RTEM systems, facility managers can gain access to building energy consumption data at the circuit level in real time to pinpoint energy usage, identify areas where energy is wasted, and create opportunities to increase efficiency and generate cost savings. OECM is managing the process as a means to provide public sector facility managers with the ability to more easily contract with pre-screened suppliers of energy services and technology.
