American Electric Power (AEP) Selects Enviance for Title V and Greenhouse Gas Reporting

American Electric Power (AEP) Selects Enviance for Title V and Greenhouse Gas Reporting

CARLSBAD, Calif., June 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Enviance, the leading provider of Internet-based, on demand systems for the management of environmental, health and safety (EHS) compliance activities, today announced that American Electric Power , one of the largest electric utilities in the United States, selected Enviance as its system of record for Title V compliance and greenhouse gas reporting and inventory management.

Located in Columbus, Ohio, AEP owns or operates more than 36,000 megawatts of coal, natural gas, nuclear, and renewable fueled generating capacity. As one of the largest generators of electricity in the United States, AEP is committed to ensuring its power plants are in compliance with federal, state and local air regulations for SO2, NOx and particulates, and to reducing greenhouse gas emissions including carbon dioxide (CO2), nitrous oxide (N2O), methane (CH4), and sulfur hexafluoride (SF6).

As a leader in national efforts to address Green House Gas issues, AEP voluntarily participates in programs such as the Chicago Climate Exchange (CCX), Department of Energy's Climate Challenge (1605b), and Environmental Protection Agency's Climate Leaders -- each having its own compliance reporting requirements. After extensive study of market alternatives, AEP selected the Enviance System to reduce the cost and time associated with tracking, analysis and reporting of the thousands of daily data points associated with Title V air compliance and Green House Gas monitoring and reporting.

Using web services, Enviance integrated the Enviance System with AEP's Continuous Emissions Monitoring Systems (CEMS), Opacity Monitoring Systems (COMS), and the company's custom enterprise application for fuel loading management. This integration with multiple enterprise systems has created a seamless flow of process data into the Enviance System and allows AEP to monitor, report, and analyze its air and green house gas emissions from their dispersed facilities in an efficient, cost effective and centralized way.

"AEP has placed reduction of greenhouse gas high on its agenda, made it plain that the issue is very important to shareholder value, and has eagerly taken a leadership position in the effort to solve global warming issues. Given the obvious importance of these issues to its shareholder value, we are honored that AEP has embraced the Enviance System as its centralized greenhouse gas tracking and reporting system of record," said Lawrence Goldenhersh, President and CEO of Enviance.

"AEP stands as a sterling example of the eagerness with which multi-billion dollar corporations are embracing Software as a Service solutions to address issues that are critical to shareholder value. With its deployment of web services to integrate Enviance with various core, behind-the-firewall, enterprise software systems, AEP is also a sterling example of how large corporations leverage their investment in existing enterprise software by reusing the data through Internet-driven integration," Goldenhersh continued.

Today’s IT environments are increasingly heterogeneous, with Linux, Java, Oracle and MySQL considered nearly as common as traditional Windows environments. In many cases, these platforms have been integrated into an organization’s Windows-based IT department by way of an acquisition of a company that leverages one of those platforms. In other cases, the applications may have been part of the IT department for years, but managed by a separate department or singular administrator. Still, whether...
Without lifecycle traceability and visibility across the tool chain, stakeholders from Planning-to-Ops have limited insight and answers to who, what, when, why and how across the DevOps lifecycle. This impacts the ability to deliver high quality software at the needed velocity to drive positive business outcomes. In his general session at @DevOpsSummit at 19th Cloud Expo, Phil Hombledal, Solution Architect at CollabNet, discussed how customers are able to achieve a level of transparency that e...
Logs are continuous digital records of events generated by all components of your software stack – and they’re everywhere – your networks, servers, applications, containers and cloud infrastructure just to name a few. The data logs provide are like an X-ray for your IT infrastructure. Without logs, this lack of visibility creates operational challenges for managing modern applications that drive today’s digital businesses.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

About a year ago we tuned into “the need for speed” and how a concept like "serverless computing” was increasingly catering to this. We are now a year further and the term “serverless” is taking on unexpected proportions. With some even seeing it as the successor to cloud in general or at least as a successor to the clouds’ poorer cousin in terms of revenue, hype and adoption: PaaS. The question we need to ask is whether this constitutes an example of Hype Hopping: to effortlessly pivot to the ...
As we enter the final week before the 19th International Cloud Expo | @ThingsExpo in Santa Clara, CA, it's time for me to reflect on six big topics that will be important during the show. Hybrid Cloud: This general-purpose term seems to provide a comfort zone for many enterprise IT managers. It sounds reassuring to be able to work with one of the major public-cloud providers like AWS or Microsoft Azure while still maintaining an on-site presence.
I’m a huge fan of open source DevOps tools. I’m also a huge fan of scaling open source tools for the enterprise. But having talked with my fair share of companies over the years, one important thing I’ve learned is that you can’t scale your release process using open source tools alone. They simply require too much scripting and maintenance when used that way. Scripting may be fine for smaller organizations, but it’s not ok in an enterprise environment that includes many independent teams and to...
Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
