Advanced Energy Industries, Inc. (Nasdaq:AEIS), today announced the expansion of its commercial site monitoring solution that offers Advanced Energy (AE) integrated hardware with a choice of industry-leading monitoring software providers. The expanded program now includes AlsoEnergy and meteocontrol. With extensive experience in the European market, meteocontrol’s selection for the program marks the first global monitoring partnership for AE Solar Energy. AE Solar Energy customers can now use AlsoEnergy and meteocontrol with AE’s factory-integrated performance monitoring for their commercial PV applications. AlsoEnergy and meteocontrol join ArgusON, DECK Monitoring, Draker, ESA Renewables, Locus Energy and Noveda Technologies in AE Solar Energy’s commercial site monitoring solution partner program. AlsoEnergy, an industry leading provider of energy monitoring systems serving 14 countries around the world, was added to the program due to overwhelming customer demand for advanced monitoring capabilities of commercial installations. With AlsoEnergy’s comprehensive portfolio management and monitoring tools, customers will have quick access to real-time data that provide accurate warnings and alerts, resulting in better overall system efficiency. “AlsoEnergy strives to provide its customers best-of-breed solutions that meet their unique needs,” said Robert Schaefer, CEO of AlsoEnergy. “As one of the newest partners to join AE’s program, we are looking forward to strengthening our commitment to our customers by providing a solution that is not only easy to implement but provides the real-time data necessary to increase the overall performance of their portfolio.” As a top monitoring provider in Europe, meteocontrol brings vast European market experience to the North American marketplace allowing AE Solar Energy to offer developers who already use meteocontrol internationally, to continue using the same solution in North America. By partnering with AE Solar Energy the company now offers existing customers hardware and software flexibility without the project delays and installation and commissioning costs associated with traditional in-field monitoring installations.
