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.

Any Ops team trying to support a company in today’s cloud-connected world knows that a new way of thinking is required – one just as dramatic than the shift from Ops to DevOps. The diversity of modern operations requires teams to focus their impact on breadth vs. depth. In his session at DevOps Summit, Adam Serediuk, Director of Operations at xMatters, Inc., will discuss the strategic requirements of evolving from Ops to DevOps, and why modern Operations has begun leveraging the “NoOps” approa...

Early in my DevOps Journey, I was introduced to a book of great significance circulating within the Web Operations industry titled The Phoenix Project. (You can read our review of Gene’s book, if interested.) Written as a novel and loosely based on many of the same principles explored in The Goal, this book has been read and referenced by many who have adopted DevOps into their continuous improvement and software delivery processes around the world. As I began planning my travel schedule last...
Several years ago, I was a developer in a travel reservation aggregator. Our mission was to pull flight and hotel data from a bunch of cryptic reservation platforms, and provide it to other companies via an API library - for a fee. That was before companies like Expedia standardized such things. We started with simple methods like getFlightLeg() or addPassengerName(), each performing a small, well-understood function. But our customers wanted bigger, more encompassing services that would "do ...

Its solution automatically builds you a clean, on-demand, virus free, new virtual cloud based PC outside of the United States, and wipes it clean...
Docker containerization is increasingly being used in production environments. How can these environments best be monitored? Monitoring Docker containers as if they are lightweight virtual machines (i.e., monitoring the host from within the container), with all the common metrics that can be captured from an operating system, is an insufficient approach. Docker containers can’t be treated as lightweight virtual machines; they must be treated as what they are: isolated processes running on hosts....
Culture is the most important ingredient of DevOps. The challenge for most organizations is defining and communicating a vision of beneficial DevOps culture for their organizations, and then facilitating the changes needed to achieve that. Often this comes down to an ability to provide true leadership. As a CIO, are your direct reports IT managers or are they IT leaders? The hard truth is that many IT managers have risen through the ranks based on their technical skills, not their leadership ab...

The pricing of tools or licenses for log aggregation can have a significant effect on organizational culture and the collaboration between Dev and Ops teams. Modern tools for log aggregation (of which Logentries is one example) can be hugely enabling for DevOps approaches to building and operating business-critical software systems. However, the pricing of an aggregated logging solution can affect the adoption of modern logging techniques, as well as organizational capabilities and cross-team ...
DevOps has traditionally played important roles in development and IT operations, but the practice is quickly becoming core to other business functions such as customer success, business intelligence, and marketing analytics. Modern marketers today are driven by data and rely on many different analytics tools. They need DevOps engineers in general and server log data specifically to do their jobs well. Here’s why: Server log files contain the only data that is completely full and accurate in th...

The trickier parts covered include triggering off the right metrics; balancing resilience and redundancy ...
Skeuomorphism usually means retaining existing design cues in something new that doesn’t actually need them. However, the concept of skeuomorphism can be thought of as relating more broadly to applying existing patterns to new technologies that, in fact, cry out for new approaches. In his session at DevOps Summit, Gordon Haff, Senior Cloud Strategy Marketing and Evangelism Manager at Red Hat, discussed why containers should be paired with new architectural practices such as microservices rathe...
Whether you like it or not, DevOps is on track for a remarkable alliance with security. The SEC didn’t approve the merger. And your boss hasn’t heard anything about it. Yet, this unruly triumvirate will soon dominate and deliver DevSecOps faster, cheaper, better, and on an unprecedented scale. In his session at DevOps Summit, Frank Bunger, VP of Customer Success at ScriptRock, will discuss how this cathartic moment will propel the DevOps movement from such stuff as dreams are made on to a prac...
It’s been proven time and time again that in tech, diversity drives greater innovation, better team productivity and greater profits and market share. So what can we do in our DevOps teams to embrace diversity and help transform the culture of development and operations into a true “DevOps” team? In her session at DevOps Summit, Stefana Muller, Director, Product Management – Continuous Delivery at CA Technologies, answered that question citing examples, showing how to create opportunities for ...
What does “big enough” mean? It’s sometimes useful to argue by reductio ad absurdum. Hello, world doesn’t need to be broken down into smaller services. At the other extreme, building a monolithic enterprise resource planning (ERP) system is just asking for trouble: it’s too big, and it needs to be decomposed.
The Microservices architectural pattern promises increased DevOps agility and can help enable continuous delivery of software.
