Nationwide energy management system – Coop

Short description

Tetrag is building a nationwide energy management system for Coop that will encompass more than 800 sales points and distribution centres. This includes a central server infrastructure for aggregating data to obtain daily, monthly and yearly values. Key figures will also be calculated on an ongoing basis and compared to limit values.
