ENERGYMATE-Factory is a system that Nissin Electric Co. Ltd. has developed for smart power supply in plants and offices by incorporating Sumitomo Electric's energy management system sEMSA™. We are delighted to announce that ENERGYMATE™-Factory received the Minister of the Environment Award at the 56th Product Contest in the 65th Electrical Construction Equipment and Materials Fair (JECA Fair 2017) on May 19.

sEMSA™ is an energy management system capable of monitoring and optimally controlling a variety of dispersed power systems*1 such as solar power generation equipment, cogeneration systems, and storage batteries in an integrated manner. sEMSA™ updates forecasts of the amount of generated electricity and power demand every 10 minutes for up to 48 hours in advance, thereby narrowing the gaps between the forecast and actual performance. Moreover, with the world's finest mathematical optimization technique, this system enables optimal operation scheduling for dispersed power systems to strike a balance between fulfilling contract demands and optimizing electric power usage.

ENERGYMATE-Factory incorporates sEMSA™ in addition to an integrated monitoring system for switchgear and transformer equipment*2 and in-plant loads in order to control dispersed power systems based on operation schedules as well as solar power generation and power demand forecasts. Benefits include reduced energy costs, peak shaving, and efficient use of surplus electricity. The award highly recognizes ENERGYMATE-Factory as a safe and secure solution that can contribute to global warming mitigation. This product also received the Award of Excellence at the 66th Persons of Technological Merit in Electrical Machinery Awards held on 17 April, 2017.

Sumitomo Electric is committed to providing energy cost-cutting solutions in collaboration with Nissin Electric, combining Sumitomo Electric's energy management systems and dispersed power systems with switchgear and transformer equipment developed by Nissin Electric. Through these approaches, we aim to achieve ¥5 billion sales in FY 2020 from the entire systems.
