"The first step in any plant energy efficiency initiative is to establish a baseline from which to measure improvement," said Harry Sim, CEO of Cypress Environmental. "That'swhere we fit in--to transfer the analog data that still exists in a plant into digital form. Our devices are the eyes and ears at the plant level for systems like Wonderware's Corporate Energy Management application."
