Boonton, NJ (Vocus/PRWEB) February 08, 2011
CrunchEnergy, a company dedicated to developing breakthrough technologies to help the world use less energy, announces the launch of the CrunchBox energy monitoring, management, and reporting platform. The innovative technology was developed to help businesses use less energy and, as a result, spend less money.
Using a sophisticated set of proprietary algorithms, the CrunchBox enables businesses to transform real-time energy information into intelligent data. The web-based CrunchBox Dashboard makes it easy to monitor, manipulate, and analyze data through a robust series of simple charts and graphs.
“The CrunchBox brings real-time energy usage data to the fingertips of facility managers enabling them, in the short-term, to better manage their day to day energy usage and, in the long-term, to develop better overall energy reduction strategies,” notes Scott Goldthwaite, the company’s co-founder and CEO.
By allowing facility managers to visualize and understand their energy usage, the CrunchBox highlights opportunities that can load-level and reduce energy usage in their facility. As tariff rates for consumption vary based on time-of-day or season, and peak demand charges are high, ongoing potential benefits can be significant.
“We are incredibly excited about the launch of our CrunchBox energy monitoring, management, and reporting platform. It will immediately begin to help businesses use less energy, spend less money, and lower their carbon footprints," said Dan Lynn, the company’s co-founder. “The CrunchBox platform, along with other CrunchEnergy investments such as TREXA, a revolutionary electric drive system that is transforming the electric vehicle industry, demonstrates our continued commitment to developing breakthrough technologies that help the world use less energy.”
The CrunchBox technology platform also offers a fully customizable alerting function, via email or text messaging, to ensure key stakeholders are receiving critical notifications as soon as the system identifies them.
CrunchEnergy is dedicated to developing innovative new technologies that help the world use less energy. The company is a spin-off of Metem Corporation, a leader for 50 years in the design and production of gas turbine machining processes for OEMs and in the development of next generation technologies and processes to increase energy efficiencies.
