BUFFALO GROVE, IL — Utility Information Services (UIS), a new energy management service for North American and European markets from Siemens Building Technologies, is an online solution de-signed to help building owners monitor and reduce energy costs and emissions.

The UIS online solution is available in English, German, Danish, French, and Dutch. It uses Internet technology, rather than onsite hardware and software systems, to monitor energy consumption and costs. User training requirements are thus minimized and system maintenance is all but eliminated.

The company says UIS delivers value through services that:

  • Eliminate costly and error-prone manual processes, leading to higher quality and timely energy data;

  • Provide online access to energy information 24/7;

  • Improve decision making by centralizing energy management;

  • Enable benchmarking between buildings, allowing for timely management intervention;

  • Provide energy management reports for both executive management and energy engineers or analysts;

  • Fulfill country-specific environmental regulations (e.g., Kyoto protocol); and

  • Eliminate the need for costly onsite system hardware, software, and system maintenance.

    Siemens Building Technologies Inc. is the North American affiliate of Zurich-based Siemens Building Technologies (SBT) AG.
