For both normal corporate buildings and factories, the types of energy needed are diverse, such as water, electricity, oil, and gas. The energy costs account for a high proportion of operating costs. Therefore, the strengthening of management benefits using complete mechanisms is necessary for the operations of energy systems in corporations and parks. As a result, smart energy management systems have been gradually introduced. However, these smart platforms are mostly aimed at the management of a single energy type and cannot respond to the effects of interactions between different energy types. InSynerger offers 24-hour energy and electromechanical equipment cloud AI management which can help companies establish a unified management platform. The management system can display data from different energy equipment in a visual interface to the manager through the integration of on-premise equipment and cloud systems, making management easier and more efficient.

Polon Chuang, general manager of InSynerger, stated that there are three professional requirements for energy management platforms. The first is a strong communication integration capability because the integration of numerous devices about water, electricity, oil and gas in buildings, factories and parks is relatively difficult. Furthermore, the different energy equipment on the market has unique communication protocols. Compiling the information from different energy equipment on the same platform requires an understanding of all communication standards and technologies. The second is the connecting capability of sensors. The number of sensors on the equipment is very high, with thousands to tens of thousands of sensors in larger sites. The system must have very capable connection and computing abilities to ensure smooth operations. The third is the ability to optimize the data. Even if the vast amounts of equipment and sensors can be connected, optimizing data use can also be a rigorous challenge for companies.

InSynerger's 24-hour energy and electromechanical equipment cloud AI management is equipped with the ability to solve the three problems mentioned above. The platform is designed for AIoT architecture and has integrated over 500 IoT devices. The platform has also successfully managed over 100,000 sensors, and is equipped with 15 instant solutions. These solutions can optimize the data returned by the terminal to allow operators to construct a highly efficient smart energy management platform according to their needs.

Besides highly integrating the various equipment and sensors in the site, InSynerger cloud AI management has also introduced AI machine learning algorithms. Polon Chuang pointed out that water, electricity, oil and gas are all types of energy, but they have their own respective professional requirements. In the past, these items have been the responsibility of senior technicians. However, due to the difficulty of passing on the experience of the technicians and the resource considerations of corporations, a plant engineer needs to manage several pieces of equipment. With the limited number of professionals and the lack of manpower, the management efficiency of most corporations has been lacking. Most companies wait until factory or park equipment malfunction before calling for repairs, which greatly affects the performance of corporate operations. InSynerger cloud AI management can quantify the experience of technicians. When the data detected by the sensors in the equipment reaches a set threshold, the system will send a message to the manager to perform maintenance before the equipment malfunctions. This will ensure the smooth operation of the overall system and strengthen equipment usability.

Currently, InSynerger cloud AI management has been successfully applied to many cases, such as the implementation of an energy management system commissioned by a large steel plant in Taiwan to monitor the various energy equipment in the plant. Besides developing the domestic market, the company also plans to introduce the product into foreign markets. The focus will be on Southeast Asian markets at first, then the expansion will reach the European and US markets. During the 2021 Taiwan Innotech Expo, held from October 14 to October 23, InSynerger will be at the Innovation Pilot Hall, which is co-organized by the SME Office and Industrial Development Bureau. InSynerger hopes to use this expo to find equipment manufacturers and system companies who share similar product ideals to establish an industrial ecology chain. Together, the partnerships will create optimized platforms for corporate and industrial park customers and seize the massive business opportunities of smart energy management.
