ATLANTA—April 3, 2019—Urjanet, the global leader in utility data aggregation, announced today that its customer Arconic, a Fortune 500 global technology, engineering, and advanced manufacturing leader, was named a winner of the Smart Energy Decisions Innovation Awards in Industrial Energy Data Management. Arconic earned the award for building a single source of real-time truth for energy data using automated utility invoice and interval data from Urjanet, fed into the Cotopaxi Strata system.
“This award underscores the ongoing determination and achievement that we’ve witnessed from Arconic over the past year as their solution partner,” said Urjanet CEO Sanjoy Malik. “We’re proud that our industry expertise and global utility coverage supports Arconic and customers like them in their pursuit of energy efficiency and sustainability.”
The Smart Energy Decisions Innovation Awards recognize exemplary use and implementation of innovative technologies and progressive practices among large electric power users, their suppliers, and utilities that reflect new approaches to energy procurement and management.
Industrial energy data management is a notoriously difficult challenge, especially with Arconic’s global presence with more than 150 site locations. By consolidating all aspects of energy management and procurement into a single system with Urjanet, Arconic has optimized operational efficiency and gained a clear lens into every angle of its energy strategy.
“With the power of Urjanet’s data combined with the Strata system, we now have a leading indicator for energy usage, rather than a lagging indicator.”
“Arconic is committed to ambitious energy reduction targets in this critical time, relying on advanced technology to reduce our global footprint and drive progress toward climate action goals,” said Adam Vucelich, energy services manager at Arconic. “With the power of Urjanet’s data combined with the Strata system, we now have a leading indicator for energy usage to proactively achieve those goals, rather than a lagging indicator.”
Recipients of the Smart Energy Decisions Innovation Awards are selected by an independent panel of judges, which included Ali Ahmed, principal, Green Strategies LLC; Wolfgang Bauer, distinguished professor and senior consultant, Michigan State University; Peter Kelly-Detwiler, principal, NorthBridge Energy Partners; Karl R. Rábago, executive director of the Pace Energy and Climate Center, David Reid, global energy and productivity leader, Celanese Corp., and Rowena Striff, energy manager, Lockheed Martin Aeronautics.
