Join OSIsoft and SAP for a special eco-innovation forum session on Energy and Carbon Management


I wrote a while ago about the COIL project we did with OSIsoft First hand experience from COIL –  Energy and Carbon Management with OSIsoft and SAP. Deliverables from this project has been highlighted in various events since then.

Tomorrow, I have the honor to invite Francois Gagnon from OSIsoft and Michael Appleby from SAP to present at eco-innovation forum – Live at COIL Palo Alto and online via SAP Connect.

Details below. Looking forward to seeing you joining us.

Energy and Carbon Management:
Using OSIsoft and SAP Solutions to Promote a Greener Future

Friday, December 3, 2010

1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m.

Building 1, SAP Co-Innovation Lab, Palo Alto


Speakers: Francois Gagnon, Business Development, OSIsoft LLC.

   Michael Appleby, Sr. Solution Architect, SAP

Host:       Kevin Liu, Manager, SAP Co-innovation Lab


SAP’s Co-Innovation Lab (COIL) is where SAP and its partners and customers bring innovation to fruition. The Eco Innovation series presents COIL’s first-hand experiences working with our partners and introduces SAP internal audiences to the exciting co-innovation projects occurring in the lab.


This session will introduce a joint project conducted at COIL by a team of experts from OSIsoft and SAP which demonstrates the integration of SAP MII, BusinessObjects Xcelcius and SAP Carbon Impact with the OSIsoft PI System.


OSIsoft has been a partner of SAP since 1984. As technology leaders in manufacturing industries globally, OSIsoft and SAP, provide today’s enterprise with a combined software solution needed to create the “Perfect Plant.” The first step is to methodically engineer and collect plant floor data from all sources into a PI System infrastructure. Equally critical is the technology to connect this data up into the business environment and SAP systems. Today, SAP and OSIsoft demonstrate how SAP gets value from the GreenIT initiative called: Energy and Carbon Management. Using the PI System software, building power consumption, solar panel power generation and electrical feed to the building from the City of Palo Alto are all monitored and stored. Summary data is sent up to SAP MII for Time-of-Day reporting and over to SAP Carbon Impact for carbon footprint reporting. This reporting gives SAP the ability to view and correct energy consumption problems as they occur. Manufacturing companies will also benefit from this combined technology innovation. 


Please join Francois Gagnon and Michael Appleby for a one-hour session full of information and demonstration featuring this OSIsoft and SAP co-innovation. Learn what other manufacturers are also doing with these products.
