Aug. 2, 2010: Honeywell Acquires E-Mon, Expanding Its Smart Grid Offerings
Honeywell said submeters enable facility owners, such as property managers, schools and universities, government facilities, manufacturers, or shopping centers, to better control and manage energy costs. A submeter measures energy consumption by tenant or department, and enables property owners to analyze consumption and usage patterns, helps identify failing equipment and system inefficiencies, and can verify facility energy conservation programs - all of which are critical capabilities in a smart grid environment.
E-Mon, based in Langhorne, Pa., will be integrated into Honeywell Environmental and Combustion Controls (ECC), which is part of Honeywell’s Automation and Control Solutions business group. The company said ECC’s products, components, and systems deliver temperature control, comfort, energy conservation, and safety to more than 150 million homes and 10 million buildings worldwide.
“With the acquisition of E-Mon, Honeywell has a more comprehensive technology solution to enable commercial building operators to maximize energy efficiency and make them smart grid ready,” said Joseph Puishys, president of ECC. “Submetering is the key enabler to efficiency initiatives in buildings. As the leading provider of electric submeters, E-Mon’s highly developed portfolio will strengthen Honeywell’s energy efficiency offerings, and its electrical distribution channel will broaden ECC’s customer access.”
E-Mon’s products are installed for tenant billing, cost allocation, demand side management, energy conservation, load profiling, and green building programs in skyscrapers, shopping centers, airports, factories, office buildings, apartment buildings, college campuses, and government facilities.
