Coherent Research provides the Energy Manager with an infrastructure to collect all energy data regularly, accurately and economically, manage the data securely and provide comprehensive data and reports to enable the effective management of energy consumption.
Perhaps the greatest challenge facing an Energy Manager is in creating the infrastructure to deal with many meters of different types and vintages. In an ideal situation every meter of every type (Tariff, secondary, gas, water, electricity, heat, etc.) would automatically report half-hourly data to the Energy Manager's desktop, and this is what the Coherent Energy Management Solution provides
Established in 1989 to develop and market data communications and data collection products, we are specialists in data communications. For the past 10 years we have been designing, manufacturing and supplying data communications equipment for meter manufacturers and utilities. We are familiar with most of the meters to be found in the UK. In 1990 we signed a £1M development and technology licensing contract with Siemens Measurements Ltd (the UK metering arm of Siemens AG).
Coherent Research has been collaborating extensively with UMIST (now part of the University of Manchester) to develop its first meter data collection system, and the software has been collecting metering data for the University of Manchester since December 2003.
Coherent Research has continued to develop the data collection software, and has also developed a series of dataloggers.
