Extensions to the original project are now taking place for critical alarm management and capacity management for various infrastructures. Easy to use web pages guide engineering staff around the UK by place name which then it turn provides hyperlinking to the applications required by various engineering and energy teams.

Having intelligent controllers deployed around the UK but only using a small element of the resources available has provided the perfect platform to extend the applications for more systems than just energy monitoring. We have also been able to provide information through integration to a number of 3rd party organisations…
