Statsbygg Energy module

As some readers may know, the Norwegian state facility operator, Statsbygg, awarded ICEconsult with a multiyear contract for the implementation of the facility management system MainManager.

Shortly after the contract had been signed, Statsbygg‘s energy department requested a meeting and a presentation to see if MainManager could be used for registering, monitoring and analysing it‘s energy expenditures. The data for the energy usage would also need to be presented in an accessible and user-friendly interface (as lists, graphs or reports).

Because Statsbygg is a very eco friendly company, it monitors it’s energy expenditures carefully and is also adamant about reducing energy usage and waste whenever possible. For this reason Statsbygg chose to launch a pilot where the energy consumption of 50 facilities will be monitored, registered and analysed through graphs, lists and reports in the MainManager. The next step will then be to monitor the energy consumption for the rest of Statsbygg‘s facilities portfolio.

Statsbygg required some additional features which have now been implemented in the energy module. The changes made will benefit our current customers and simplify the energy module as well as adding to it. One example of this is the new energy consumption analysis interface where the user can analyse energy usage any way he chooses.
