The National Aeronautics and Space Agency(NASA) has installed an enterprise energy management system to control power usage and reduce costs at its Ames Research Center facility near San Francisco. Designed by Jacobs/Sverdrup Technology, the Ames Power Monitoring System (APMS) monitors power usage throughout the center, including the facility's three large wind tunnels, used regularly for aeronautic research and development testing. The system, manufactured byPower Measurement(Victoria, BC), uses ION(R) Enterprise(TM) software installed on over a dozen PC workstations combined with approximately a hundred ION 7330(TM) and ION 7700(TM) meters (at full implementation), to help facility personnel manage and schedule real-time and future energy usage.
