STEM using real-time energy monitoring
Optimum Control Technologies has developed an engaging series of animated videos covering some of the critical areas impacting energy use. These videos are available to STEM teachers for use in conjunction with the installed energy monitoring system. Additionally, there are some simple experiments that students can undertake to test and measure elements at their school and determine the potential for energy reduction themselves.

 Students can be provided access to the live energy monitoring platform to view the school’s immediate and historical energy use. Data can be downloaded and for use in graphs, etc. Their understanding of building elements through support of the STEM videos, means students will have a cohesive understanding of things that affect energy consumption like air conditioning settings and behavioural patterns.

VIDEOS: Air conditioning, Window Film, Solar and Batteries, Reflective Roof Paint, Hot Water, Lighting, and Energy Monitoring

Visualize data with Power BI
Using Panoramic Power real-time energy data along with the PowerBI program, students are able to visualize and analyze their school’s energy data gaining insights into the school’s operation and performance and identifying potential areas for improvement.

Given today’s data analytics landscape, engaging students in understanding streaming datasets is increasingly important. The ability of industries to access and analyze information in the moment is now a necessity for businesses to remain ahead in a dynamic marketplace. From retail to telecommunications, using data analytics, like Power BI’s dynamic dashboards, allows industries to analyze and streamline processes and accelerate expansion in their business lines.
