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-Ready™ Technology
ATLANTA, June 6, 2013
ATLANTA, June 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --JouleX, a leading innovator in
enterprise energy management systems for data centers, distributed office
environments, and facilities, today announced that it has added Best Energy
Reduction Technologies LLC, manufacturer of Bert®, a WiFi plug, to its
JouleX-Ready™ 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
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."
