Waterford Township-based Kors Engineering Tuesday announced a partnership with Missoula, Montana-baesd Alter Enterprise LLC to produce a device that saves energy in water heating for large commercial buildings.
Using Tridium Niagara AX software, Kors Engineering created an interconnect to enable energy monitoring devices to communicate. Alter Enterprises designs how the devices will monitor the systems and reduce energy consumption.
The new device not only monitors energy usage in real time, but also sends alerts when usage exceeds predetermined parameters, allowing companies to react immediately to costly, unforeseen energy usage.
“We have long maintained that an unmonitored energy system is an unmanaged energy system,” said Alter Enterprise founder Ryan Alter. “This device, developed in cooperation with Kors Engineering, helps facilities reduce energy usage, conserve resources and operate more efficiently. We present a compelling, cost-saving proposal that saves two types of green.”
Added Kors Engineering President Tony Kaczmarek: “This project allowed us to apply our expertise to creating a module that quickly and effectively addressed a customer’s unique needs to conserve resources and improve its bottom line.”
