Benefits

From small to large utility-scale renewable energy power plants in all corners of the globe, customers can enjoy a full range of benefits from BlueNRGY Monitoring 2.0.
Increase site yield.

BlueNRGY enables users to increase site yield by providing smart data analysis tools, which offer greater insight into a power plant’s system performance by tracking more than just total kWh produced. We provide detailed data histories that meet the information needs of a broad range of energy customers – from high-level dashboard portfolio displays to viewing raw, low-level metrics of all connected devices.

Reduce system downtime & quickly identify performance issues.

BlueNRGY saves users hours in performing data analysis and allows for quick identification of performance issues across an entire power plant portfolio with easy-to-use reporting tools, custom creation of key performance indicators, and automated alarms with user-defined classifications to alert responsible parties to system outages and underperformance metrics.

Maximize profitability.

With convenient web access and insight into real-time power plant data and added time-efficient tools that you can act on, you save on time and labor costs, which translate into a boost in your bottom line.

Manage an entire renewable energy portfolio on a single platform.

BlueNRGY Monitoring aggregates and normalizes real-time plant data from multiple sources, enabling users to easily manage assets and track energy performance of portfolios in all corners of the globe.

“Always-Available” data with unlimited data storage.

You gain peace of mind knowing that BlueNRGY provides unlimited data storage with local and cloud-based backup and recovery systems, ensuring that power plant data is always available to you.

A device-agnostic solution.

BlueNRGY Monitoring allows you to monitor any kind of power plant type (solar/PV, wind, biogas, etc.) as well as thousands of connected devices (i.e., inverters, meters, string boxes, weather stations) at the power plant site, regardless of hardware manufacturer. This eliminates the costly expense and cumbersome challenge of having to use several different monitoring systems that are limited to a particular power plant type or specific kind of hardware.

Secure data access.

At BlueNRGY, we take data security very seriously. To give you the peace of mind knowing that your data and passwords are always protected, we use a 2048 bit encryption key verified by VeriSign for communication to and from BlueNRGY’s servers – a security infrastructure leveraged by the world’s leading financial institutions.

Improve energy performance and uptime.

BlueNRGY’s 24/7 Network Operations Center (NOC) infrastructure, resources and expertise helps to prevent production loss and reduced profits by proactively monitoring and analyzing power plant portfolios for improved energy performance and uptime. Learn more about NOC Management Services here.


How BlueNRGY Monitoring 2.0 Works

BlueNRGY Monitoring is a device-agnostic system that is designed to collect and log a multitude of performance data from commercial installations of any size where we offer three options for acquiring data based on industry best practices and a customer's specific needs, making BlueNRGY Monitoring 2.0 an ideal energy monitoring solution for even the most complex sites.

Step 1. A public export to acquire data.

Customers who have already installed a compatible SCADA or data logger that supports an automated export via FTP and therefore do not require the BlueNRGY BlueBOX device, can push plant data directly to BlueNRGY's secure cloud servers.

Step 2. Storing and normalizing data.

BlueNRGY’s secure cloud servers store and analyze site metrics of all the power plant data and its connected devices (i.e., inverters, meters, string boxes, weather stations).

Step 3. Web portal data visualization.

BlueNRGY sends real-time site metrics to the web-based monitoring portal where customers can immediately monitor and manage the current status of their entire power plant portfolio in one complete user-friendly interface. Through the portal, users can:

  • Create custom key performance indicators, such as production, performance, availability, and revenue in relation to real-time weather data.
  • Manage system- and/or user-generated alerts that can be assigned to support staff to ensure ownership and set priority levels.
  • Create custom reports where users can create templates with user-defined metrics in the form of charts or tables, as well as allowing comments at each section.

Step 1. A real-time SCADA export to acquire data.

BlueNRGY acquires plant data by installing its industrial grade BlueBOX device at the site, which directly connects to a locally installed SCADA system or data logger.

Once an IP connection is established between the SCADA system and the BlueBOX, BlueNRGY then exports all monitored data points via an existing OPC server and protocol provided by the customer.

All data points read from the OPC server are then pushed to BlueNRGY's secure cloud servers at any configured interval you set.

Step 2. Storing and normalizing data.

BlueNRGY’s secure cloud servers store and analyze site metrics of all the power plant data and its connected devices (i.e., inverters, meters, string boxes, weather stations).

Step 3. Web portal data visualization.

BlueNRGY sends real-time site metrics to the web-based monitoring portal where customers can immediately monitor and manage the current status of their entire power plant portfolio in one complete user-friendly interface. Through the portal, users can:

  • Create custom key performance indicators, such as production, performance, availability, and revenue in relation to real-time weather data.
  • Manage system- and/or user-generated alerts that can be assigned to support staff to ensure ownership and set priority levels.
  • Create custom reports where users can create templates with user-defined metrics in the form of charts or tables, as well as allowing comments at each section.

Step 1. A direct connection for data acquisition.

Best suited for installations without an existing SCADA system, install and directly connect our industrial grade BlueBOX device at the power plant using a Modbus communication protocol (i.e., serial RTU or TCP) to acquire real-time plant data.

Once directly connected to the BlueBOX, our device pushes real-time plant data it collects to BlueNRGY's secure cloud servers at any configured interval you set.

Step 2. Storing and normalizing data.

BlueNRGY’s secure cloud servers store and analyze site metrics of all the power plant data and its connected devices (i.e., inverters, meters, string boxes, weather stations).

Step 3. Web portal data visualization.

BlueNRGY sends real-time site metrics to the web-based monitoring portal where customers can immediately monitor and manage the current status of their entire power plant portfolio in one complete user-friendly interface. Through the portal, users can:

  • Create custom key performance indicators, such as production, performance, availability, and revenue in relation to real-time weather data.
  • Manage system- and/or user-generated alerts that can be assigned to support staff to ensure ownership and set priority levels.
  • Create custom reports where users can create templates with user-defined metrics in the form of charts or tables, as well as allowing comments at each section.
