Introduction to the EMS Platform
MinEnergi2 – EMS platform
A single solution for all your energy data
MinEnergi2 is an Energy Management System (EMS) that provides a complete overview of energy
and water consumption, as well as carbon emissions from buildings and other energy-consuming units in all areas of your business. Hour by hour, year in, year out. The more parameters you measure, the more complete the overview of your consumption and the broader your reporting options. Last but not least – energy savings that pay for the investment, with an experiential payback period of 1-3 years.
Smart tools for digital energy management
By setting up digital remote reading of your energy meters
in all areas of your business, you establish a new framework for your administrative processes regarding energy-related operation. To do this, we apply smart tools for monitoring and management, analysis and benchmarking, budgets and forecasting and – in particular – reporting.
We register data in 6 areas of consumption: Electricity, water, heating, cooling, transport and waste. This allows you to collate all your consumption data in a single platform and to compile more comprehensive reports.

and production, backed by efficient
An integratable solution – the art of the possible
The MinEnergi2 EMS is an open, fully integratable platform with unlimited integration options. A platform that develops over time, opening up new opportunities for what it is possible to achieve with our solutions. This provides our customers with the flexibility to expand, alter and shape their “SmartBuilding” setup precisely as they please.
An analysis level for every need in the business
When running an enterprise, you need to be able to set up, collect, analyse and report with the access that suits your business. MinEnergi2 is built up around the needs of your business to analyse data at various levels, with the correspondingly differentiated reporting output.
Everything you need for day-to-day operations – in one place.
Make energy a single, coherent area that includes all your energy-specific and administrative processes. For a de luxe overview. Alerts and analysis tools to identify wastage of energy and water resources. As well as automated budget and reporting functions for simple communication. And last but not least – display the positive effects of your optimisation work on consumption, finances and carbon emissions.
Dashboard & Overview
The dashboard is the first thing you see when you log into MinEnergi2. It presents a quick overview of the company’s/the building’s overall consumption, visualised in costs, CO2 and energy, respectively, for all your registered forms of energy.
The building benchmark function compares the consumption and performance of your buildings with corresponding buildings in the EnergiData database (anonymised).
There are two modules that feature alerts.
- A Call-To-Action overview, which is a financially prioritised list of unresolved alerts.
- An overview of the five most recent unresolved alerts; a module that presents the five most recent alarms, in order of associated financial consequence.
The standby consumption function displays an overview of the development in standby consumption in the building over the past four weeks, as well as an indication of how consumption is distributed during the day.
A function that identifies energy wastage via a heat map and displays an overview showing the duration of the wastage in question.
Analyses & Benchmark
MinEnergi2 comprises five different analysis modules. One of the most commonly used is the Consumption Analysis, which quite simply shows energy consumption for the current year compared with the same period in the previous year, as well as the budget for the form of energy in question.
The overview can be expanded with a single click, allowing you to zoom in on the relevant month. With one more click, you can then see the day-resolution for the energy consumption. The data are shown down to the total consumption per form of energy, per meter type or for each individual meter.
The standby analysis is generated on the basis of the operating times registered under your basic data, where everything other than operating time is classed as standby consumption.
The cooling module generates an analysis – down to hour resolution – for heat dissipation in the district heating installations. At the same time, the cooling module presents an indication of the financial consequences of any non-optimal heat dissipation in relation to any dissipation requirements stipulated by the district heating plant.
The KPI analysis presents an overview of the company’s own buildings. The building with the highest KPIs is ranked top. As standard, MinEnergi2 generates KPIs on the basis of area distribution, but it is also possible for individual companies to establish other KPIs adapted to specific conditions.
The building benchmark analysis presents a comparison of your company’s buildings with corresponding buildings in the MinEnergi2 database. This takes the form of an anonymised presentation of how many buildings are compared for the different forms of energy.
Monitoring, Alarms & Call-To-Action
The monitoring modules in MinEnergi2 display different overviews of inappropriate energy consumption. All alerts that have been set up for your company will be presented on two different lists. One of these lists displays the financial consequences of any consumption exceeding the alert thresholds, while the other presents the alerts themselves in order of date.
This makes it possible to prioritise input on the basis of either alert regularity or financial consequences.
The Call-To-Action list displays all unresolved alerts in order of financial priority, where the highest financial consequence comes first. The financial consequences are calculated on the basis of the first unresolved alert for the form of energy in question, up to the present date. It is therefore important to mark the alerts as resolved as soon as they have been dealt with by the MinEnergi2 user.
The alert list presents a list of all the alerts that have been triggered, with the most recent first. This list is not linked to the financial consequences; it is compiled exclusively on the basis of when the alerts were triggered. This list makes it possible to see how often each alert type was triggered and thus to prioritise input on regularly triggered alerts that may require actions to deal with the underlying cause.
The alarm set-up module allows users to create, edit, deactivate and delete alarms. In addition to enabling users to view the frequency of the individual alarms, this module makes it possible to identify which meters have triggered alarms and, where necessary, how many alarms they have triggered. The alarm set-up module allows you to choose between six different alarms types so that you can monitor over-consumption or poor yield from district heating, for example.
MinEnergi2 makes it possible to send reports related to consumption – at pre-defined intervals – to relevant stakeholders within your company or to external recipients (Board members and the like). The reports present an overview of the development in energy consumption during a given period.
The building report is issued every week and compares energy consumption over the past week with that of the preceding week. This allows building managers to track developments and keeps them up-to-date with energy consumption in their buildings. This function can be activated and deactivated for the users who have data access to the building.
The user-specific report can be issued as an immediate report displaying consumption and carbon emissions for a previous period. It can also be set up to be issued automatically at defined intervals in the future. The advantage of the user-specific report is that it can be sent to recipients who may not necessarily be users of the system. This can be particularly valuable to local authorities, for example, that wish to keep their municipal boards updated with regard to developments in energy consumption.
You can set up budgets at all levels in MinEnergi2. In other words, you can set up the budgets that are most appropriate for your company. The level of detail can be adjusted to match wishes and requirements, upcoming optimisation projects and so on.
This makes it possible to track energy consumption closely and compare it to expectations, as well as to set up budget alerts that trigger notifications if budget values are exceeded.
