ICIS Plant Energy has been designed with the most common Automation and IT infrastructures in mind. Our solutions are Microsoft .NET components running on Windows platforms incorporating the latest Web technology for visualisation and integration to the automation layer. This enables us to integrate into any industry and leading automation or historian provider.
Virtual Metering is our patented technology that allows us to create software metering components for any energy type (Steam, Power, Water and Gases) by utilising base data from the process automation system. This unique approach allows us to build virtual sensors mapping out the energy usage of a facility, its processes, and in doing so offering a software approach to IIOT.

ICIS provides the common link for energy information sharing between your departments needed to successfully implement your sustainability program:
Energy Department – Identify energy users, energy mappings and carbon emissions
Process Department – Identify why there's excessive energy usage in a process
Operations – Identify changes to work practices
The ICIS software platform integrates seamlessly with your data historian, automation systems and metering devices through the use of our unique software interfacing technology. Sourcing information however is only the start of the process. ICIS provides an extensive toolset and powerful dashboard and reporting system that provides you with the necessary information displays that will empower you to justify and act on your sustainability strategy.
With ICIS software there is no programming or be-spoke user coding required to get the results you need. Our patented technology has been embedded into our system allowing you to simply configure your data sources, traditional meters and our unique virtual meters. There are over 100 types of virtual meters to choose from ranging from simple device items such as control valves to complex units such as heat exchangers. This configurability allows for users to quickly build their energy maps and backfill data to the system from their automation sources, which will then provide instant historical energy reviews from day one of go live.
ICIS integrate with all leading historian & automation providers and are development partners with a number of them also, thus ensuring that our interfaces communicate with their products efficiently.
