Blue Pillar, the leading Internet of Things (IoT) network solutions provider for facility-based data and control systems, today announced it has been selected by eSight Energy, a leading global supplier of enterprise energy management platforms, as their IoT connectivity and network provider. This partnership enables eSight to provide its current and future customers with turnkey connectivity and networking solutions to complement their energy management platform offering while enabling Blue Pillar to offer eSight’s energy management platform as a value-added application to their core Commercial and Industrial (C&I) customers.
eSight’s Enterprise Energy Management platform enables clients to import energy data from their customer’s facilities which typically comes from meters, building automation systems, or other equipment. In scenarios whereby there may be a lack of metering data, a requirement to implement metering or data logging, or similar data acquisition challenges, Blue Pillar solves this problem by providing a connectivity platform for the customer site which has been successfully and seamlessly integrated into the eSight platform. This integration will allow eSight to offer an end-to-end solution which combines connectivity and energy management for their customers. Through this combined solution, the customer can more easily tap into eSight’s analytics and management software, which provides end-users with a greater ability to enable cost savings, monitor energy usage, accurately create carbon and sustainability reports, track energy projects against target, manage tenant billing and more.
“Blue Pillar is excited to be working with eSight to showcase how connectivity solutions such as our Aurora platform can be easily integrated into value-added applications and greatly enhance the time-to-value and ease of implementation for C&I customers,” said Tom Willie, CEO of Blue Pillar. “Our C&I customers consistently say they need the data and they need to know what to do once they have it. This partnership with eSight addresses that request.”
eSight’s CEO, Janie Jefferies-Freer said of the announcement, “One of the biggest challenges with energy projects is that of data acquisition. This partnership positions us to manage the end-to-end project for our clients through a single point of contact offering a solution which de-risks, simplifies and reduces costs for our customers. We have worked with Blue Pillar who has used eSight for a number of years already, and know their team and business well. This partnership makes complete sense for us and is a big win for our clients”.
