In order to compete in the field of heat energy production market, a company must efficiently and effectively realize processes connected with heat sale, immediately react to technological changes, implement actions aiming at energy loss reductions, especially heat energy.
IT system had to meet expectations and requirements of the company covering standard fields of ERP system functionalities such as: finance, accounting, purchase, warehouse and jobs management as well as complex strictly technological fields including heat energy calculation, energy loss monitoring, technological infrastructure management or control of heating network maintenance costs.
Veolia was looking for a software to cover energy billing processes together with technology management and energy analysis. The answer was ENERGIA - Utility Management, fortunately an integrated part of MS Dynamics NAV which was well known in Veolia.
Our company - Kelvin - has been present in the field of heating market since 1989. We have long experience with MS Dynamics NAV, the master team of developers and consultants. Since 1990 we have constantly been developing ENERGIA – Utility Management add-on for MS Dynamics NAV which is a complete system for managing the district heating plant. Today we are proud of ENERGIA – Utility Management add-on for MS Dynamics NAV 2015.
In 2007 our company - Kelvin - started cooperation with Veolia France including ENERGIA add-on to Veolia’s Microsoft Dynamics NAV core. Today ENERGIA add-on is an integrated part of Veolia ERP software and is used in such Veolia’s departments over the world as:
In 2008 we launched a project in China and covered few localization. The first localization was Jamusi city, north-east China. Jamusi ‘s heating plant delivers heat energy to 170 000 consumers covering 10 million square meters of properties. The other one was located within Chongqing (Changshou) Chemical Industry Park. Veolia was the unique energy service company authorized by the local industry park committee to provide steam to more than 80 industrial factories. ENERGIA add-on for MS Dynamics NAV implemented in 2010 has supported energy invoice calculation and power plant efficiency reporting.
One of the most interesting project was Varna Bulgaria. The project focused mainly on billing processes including losses calculation on heating network. Very complex calculation rules for private consumers makes the project really challenging. ENERGIA add-on has been enhanced by new calculation functionalities supporting specific Bulgarian requirements.
Combining standard functionalities of MS Dynamics NAV with ENERGIA add-on enabled to reflect specific requirements and processes of heat energy plant. Implementation of ENERGIA brought several measurable and rational benefits such as:
