Gulplug: Industrial energy efficiency
Empowering energy managers to take control of energy consumption
Flexible, safe and secure energy monitoring and management
Reducing industrial and manufacturing power consumption
Manufacturing and industrial firms have worked hard to implement
efficiencies across their operations: lean processes, smart supply chains, and just-in-time
procurement have cut waste and streamlined production.
Energy efficiency has a key role to play in cutting costs and
increasing competitiveness. Even during non-productive periods, when machines are not running,
energy use can be as much as 50 to 70 per cent of total power consumption. gulplug’s solutions
have been developed to make energy efficiency as easy as possible for energy managers at
manufacturing and industrial plants of all sizes in all sectors.
Non-intrusive sensors, data, analysis and controls
Gulplug has developed a series of solutions to enable industrial
and manufacturing plants to develop a Save it Yourself® approach to reducing energy consumption.
The goal is to give local energy managers the information and the confidence they need to
understand the results of energy consumption analysis, and to position them as the in-house
experts for delivering real energy savings.
To this end, the gulplug solutions are designed to be easy to install and easy to use without
lengthy training or consultation. They require no disruption to production and no installation
expertise, and can be safely and securely applied to any machine or piece of equipment. Using
gulplug’s solutions enables energy managers to choose which equipment to assess, create a bespoke
energy monitoring system for their specific plant, and to reduce overall consumption –
particularly during non-production periods.
Gulplug’s solutions for industrial energy efficiency include:
Wireless, lossless, and batteryless sensors that can be clamped to any machine or piece of equipment to measure electricity flow
Connected solutions that visualise consumption data and offer immediate insight into plant activity and potential energy reduction measures
Data analytics to boost efficiency and productivity of plants, to optimise production tools and to support operational teams
Automatic alerts about equipment performance and status to enable more effective and predictive maintenance schedules
Regular reports demonstrating effects of energy-efficiency measures and savings delivered
Repeatable, controllable cost reduction
The guplug solutions help industrial energy managers to monitor energy use and to reduce
energy consumption by up to ten per cent. They require minimal capital expenditure and typically deliver a return on
investment within one year. The solutions continue to deliver cost savings year on year, enabling energy managers to
meet strategic corporate goals for reducing operational expenditure. The guplug solutions also support a company’s
efforts to achieve ISO 50001 certification for energy efficiency.
gulplug’s energy sensors and connectivity solutions have been deployed by food processing
company, Bonduelle, and the automotive manufacturer Line-Fenwick. Industrial giant, Schneider Electric, has also
installed gulplug’s solutions in its Carros plant in France. Stop&Start has been deployed by food processing company,
Bonduelle, and the automotive manufacturer Line-Fenwick. Industrial giant, Schneider Electric, has also installed
Stop&Start in its Carros plant in France.
