When it comes to figuring out the costs and expenses for a logistics management unit in an enterprise, energy consumption tops the list. Energy units are integral parts of the daily routine in a company and cannot be ignored at any stage. However, we cannot overlook the fact that in many cases energy is misused and not monitored. The result is huge cost breakouts in addition to disturbances in your monthly budgets.

In a world where businesses are scaling rapidly, automating energy monitoring is especially critical to reducing enterprise costs and predicting the consumptions for the future. You might think that initiating an energy monitoring process is a massive task, but you would be wrong.  FusionCharts provides you with everything you need to create a ready-to-go, smart energy monitoring and visualization dashboard.

The best part is that FusionCharts makes its full source code available for developers. In order to start using it, you only need to download it and plug it into your own projects.

How can I build a smart energy monitoring dashboard with FusionCharts?

FusionCharts is one of the very few charting tools that enables you to create interactive, beautiful, and insightful visualizations with ease and precision. Smart energy monitoring is a prime example of this. With FusionCharts, you can quickly create smart energy monitoring dashboards, keep track of energy wastage, and also work towards optimizing your enterprise energy consumption.

Here are some of the key features of a smart energy monitoring dashboard.

  • Identify inefficient rooms that consume excess energy.
  • Track the exact usage of electricity and gas power.
  • Predict energy consumption based on intelligent analyses of previous usage.
  • Set up energy emissions thresholds.

How can I track the energy consumption of active appliances on my energy monitoring dashboard?

Monitoring the energy consumption of your active appliances is valuable information that you can show on your dashboard. Proper monitoring can help you figure out your overall energy consumption and also filter out the appliances that are overshooting established thresholds. In addition, you can use this metric to control these appliances and optimize their power use.

FusionCharts has a full suite of Bootstrap-based libraries in addition to JavaScript support to help you integrate the active appliances monitoring module into your dashboard.

var monthDataArr_0 = [14.8, 14.5, 15.4, 15.4, 14.9, 15.3, 15.1, 14.7, 14.8, 15.3, 14.9, 15.3, 14.3, 14.9, 15, 14.8, 14.7, 14.7, 14.9, 14.5, 14.4, 14.7, 15.1, 14.6, 14.7, 15.1, 14.5, 14.8, 14.7, 14.8, 14.4];
var dataArr = eval("monthDataArr_" + 0);
var tecVal = 0;
for (var i = 0; i < moment().daysInMonth(); i++) {
    tecVal = tecVal + dataArr[i];
}
var eVal = 0;
var gVal = 0;
for (var i = 0; i < moment().daysInMonth(); i++) {
    eVal = eVal + (0.6 * dataArr[i]);
    gVal = gVal + (0.4 * dataArr[i]);
}
dataSource = buildDataThisMonth("All");
document.getElementById("stats").innerHTML = Math.round(tecVal * 100) / 100 + " kWh";
document.getElementById("elecvalue").innerHTML = Math.round(eVal * 100) / 100 + " kWh";
document.getElementById("gasvalue").innerHTML = Math.round(gVal * 100) / 100 + " kWh";

Here is how your active appliance monitoring component looks on your dashboard.

How can I easily monitor the carbon footprint in my dashboard?

Unfortunately, adding a carbon emission monitoring module to your dashboard is not as simple as it might seem. It involves a lot of careful consideration of data and its interpretation in the visualizations. All these things, if handled from scratch, can cause a wide range of problems and would also require an enormous amount of effort.

FusionCharts provides a simple mechanism that involves just a few lines of JavaScript code to integrate carbon footprint monitoring into your dashboard. Best of all, the FusionCharts library itself handles everything internally. Take a look!

var cpCalc, cper;
var dataSource;
dataSource = carbonfootprint_month_data;
cpCalc = 0;
for (var i = 0; i < moment().subtract(1, 'month').daysInMonth(); i++) {
    cpCalc = cpCalc + pmArr[i];
}
var cDate = parseInt(moment().format('D'));
var sfmCalc = 0;
for (var i = 0; i < cDate; i++) {
    sfmCalc = sfmCalc + cmArr[i];
}
var pmcpCalc = 0;
for (var i = 0; i < moment().daysInMonth(); i++) {
    pmcpCalc = pmcpCalc + cmArr[i];
}
if (pmcpCalc > cpCalc) {
    cper = Math.round(([(pmcpCalc / cpCalc) * 100] - 100) * 100) / 100;
    document.getElementById("em-tablecell-value4").innerHTML = cper + "% <span style='color: #EF5052;'>▲</span>"
}
else if (pmcpCalc < cpCalc) {
    cper = Math.round((100 - [(pmcpCalc / cpCalc) * 100]) * 100) / 100;
    document.getElementById("em-tablecell-value4").innerHTML = cper + "% <span style='color: #B4F9A1;'>▼</span>"
}
document.getElementById("em-tablecell-title1").innerHTML = moment().subtract(1, 'month').format('MMMM');
document.getElementById("em-tablecell-value1").innerHTML = Math.round(cpCalc * 100) / 100 + "  kg";
document.getElementById("em-tablecell-title2").innerHTML = "So Far This Month";
document.getElementById("em-tablecell-value2").innerHTML = Math.round(sfmCalc * 100) / 100 + "  kg"
document.getElementById("em-tablecell-title3").innerHTML = "Predicted This Month";
document.getElementById("em-tablecell-value3").innerHTML = Math.round(pmcpCalc * 100) / 100 + "  kg"
document.getElementById("em-tablecell-title4").innerHTML = "Change in Emissions";

Here is how your carbon footprint tracking component in the dashboard looks like.
