FEATURES AND BENEFITS
BluWave-ai SaaS provides attractive OPEX, CAPEX and environmental benefits through a full set of features:
Like so many responsible energy producers, large institutional, commercial, and industrial campuses and plants with grid-tied microgrids are considering how to reduce energy costs and greenhouse gas emissions. Increasingly, operators are looking to integrate renewable energy assets, such as solar photovoltaic (PV) ones, and storage systems with dispatchable load and generation, to lower harmful emissions and displace grid import.
Using AI models trained with site operational data to predict load and generation, as well as energy pricing, BluWave-ai optimizes the use of dispatchable assets, energy storage, and import/export of grid power in real-time. By intelligently managing energy storage and local generation, loads can also be shifted to avoid peak demand periods and reduce demand charges. The net result is a reduction in energy costs and greenhouse gas emissions of up to 20%.
BluWave-ai also helps reduce battery storage requirements and maximizes battery lifetime, to reduce and/or delay future purchases. BluWave-ai leverages industry standard technologies to ensure interoperability with SCADA and IoT devices, and to work with external data sources such as weather, planned schedules, event signals, market pricing, and performance objectives.
BluWave-ai’s software-as-a-service (SaaS) model allows for rapid deployment with a low upfront cost, immediate operating savings, and an improved return on existing infrastructure investments.
BluWave-ai Edge provides IoT and SCADA data collection and pre-processing, AI inference, prediction and optimization. BluWave-ai Center provides user interface and configuration provisioning and management, and AI model training.
