JouleX and Best Energy Reduction Technologies Team To Tackle 100 Percent of the Plug Load Problem
BERT® Manufacturer Is the Newest Member Of the JouleX-ReadyTM Technology Partner Program
ATLANTA — JouleX, a leading innovator in enterprise energy management systems for data centers, distributed office environments, and facilities, has announced that it has added Best Energy Reduction Technologies LLC, manufacturer of Bert®, a WiFi plug, to its JouleX-ReadyTM technology partner program. The fully integrated JouleX and Bert solution allows customers to quickly and easily manage their entire plug load, both IT and non-IT, to reduce energy costs by up to 70 percent. The solution integrates seamlessly with Building Management Systems (BMS) from Honeywell, Johnson Controls, Schneider Electric, Siemens, and others.
Bert extends the JouleX Energy Manager (JEM) platform to monitor, analyze, and control devices plugged into outlets that are not natively enabled with Internet Protocol (IP) such as refrigerators, coffee makers, copiers, water coolers, vending machines, lamps, even mobile phone and tablet chargers. This solution gives building and energy managers the ability to manage their non-IT plug load with their existing WiFi network along with their IT plug load in a central dashboard?providing visibility into all plug loads in context with other building loads such as HVAC and lighting.
“We are excited to join the JouleX-Ready technology partner program and team with JouleX to provide customers a unique solution that reduces plug load for both IT and non-IT devices,” said Scott Yetter, CEO Best Energy Reduction Technologies (Bert).
The solution also integrates with BMS such as those from Honeywell, Johnson Controls, Schneider Electric, and Siemens. The integration with these systems allows users to set policies that trigger within a BMS, pull energy data from a BMS into the JEM platform, or from JEM into their BMS.
“The combined solution of JouleX and Bert provides organizations with a plug load system that can measure energy usage, identify savings and reduce energy waste throughout the entire enterprise,” said Tom Noonan, President and CEO at JouleX. “We are excited to go to market to provide an integrated plug load solution to customers around the globe.”
