ZUG, Switzerland — The Siemens Building Technologies Division has launched Advantage Navigator, a software platform that the company said can track the long-term performance of a single facility or an entire portfolio of buildings. The cloud-based software enables the user to monitor and analyze total building performance as measured through energy consumption, energy procurement, and key sustainability performance indicators.

“The Advantage Navigator platform evolved from Siemens’ Energy Management and Controlling (EMC) solution, which collects, connects, and analyzes data,” said Eike Steffen, global head of Building Performance and Sustainability at Siemens Building Technologies Division. “Whereas the EMC solution focused primarily on the demand side and consumption information, the Advantage Navigator platform incorporates energy supply management functionalities to provide a complete picture of total energy management.”

Siemens said it offers a full contingent of analysts and energy experts who can identify and implement recommendations to help customers drive maximum energy efficiency, minimize operating costs, and reduce environmental impact.

“What differentiates us from the rest of the industry is our seamless integration of domain expertise and technology to help our clients achieve optimal energy and operational performance,” said David Hopping, vice president and U.S. head of Building Performance and Sustainability at Siemens Industry Inc. “In addition to energy management applications, the Advantage Navigator platform has robust operational performance analytics to drive system efficiency measures.”

Customizable, scalable, and user friendly, said Siemens, the Advantage Navigator platform serves as a customer portal for such areas as supply management, system performance, and compliance reporting. The technology can provide a holistic and enterprise-wide view of energy and operational performance, resulting in better energy reporting, improved energy monitoring, accurate utility bill management, and carbon reporting.
