Subject: Last use case was truncated
Here is the last use case which was truncated in the previous e-mail. . The local power utility cannot build any more generating capacity. To prevent outages, it is motivating companies to restrict consumption. An engineering company is interested in a new contract which gives lower prices if they can guarantee that certain levels of power consumption will never be exceeded. However the energy consumption profile of the site varies considerably; one week welding is crucial, the next chemical treatment is essential. The company needs different energy profiles to shed different non-essential loads at different times and under different conditions. By defining different work profiles the facility manager can ensure power is only cut from non-essential activities whilst core production can continue.
