Energy Management System

Schneider Electric’s comprehensive in-room Cassia Energy Management System for hotels and multi-tenant buildings increases energy efficiency and guest comfort.

10/01/2010


Schneider Electric has announced the launch of the Cassia Energy Management System (EMS), an intuitive in-room energy solution for hotels and other multi-unit facilities that maximizes operating efficiencies while enhancing the level of guest comfort and experience. Estimated to save up to 44% in energy costs per year, the Cassia EMS uses room automation and energy monitoring software to increase efficiencies in three areas of major consumption: heating, cooling, and lighting.

From installation to day-to-day operation, the Cassia EMS offers facility owners innovative ways to eliminate energy waste and other associated costs. The system uses a graphically rich, customizable software interface that provides real-time energy monitoring and reporting tailored to the needs of the facility. In each room, battery-powered thermostats, lighting controls, and sensors are deployed and communicate via Zigbee state-of-the-art wireless technology. Since the components of the in-room system use wireless technology, a simple, nonintrusive retrofit of equipment can be accomplished with quick installation turnaround times. This offers owners the benefit of a continued revenue stream in addition to a rapid return on investment.
