HyperHack-2023-Energy Consumption Optimization For Sustainable Environment

Use Case Description

Automation using UiPath can lead to optimizing the energy consumption and help provide a sustainable environment. In this usecase, there are three prerequisites, first, an energy account login to retrieve daily consumption data from an online application.The provider companies also require to build an application to list out the daily consumption data. Most of the providers enable applications to view the daily data consumption. Second, an energy account or control system login to control the lighting /heating/cooling systems via an application. Third, the ML model is to be trained to learn the historical consumption pattern.

As part of this usecase, the UiPath Studio workflow is designed to log in to the application and navigate to the daily data usage screen. It then extracts the data and converts it as a PDF document. At this stage, the workflow/human can browse the PDF file and upload it into Automation Cloud Document Understanding. The file is classified,extracted, and validated and the pattern is learnt. It identifies the inefficiencies and triggers an alert/ warning message.

As an enhancement, this workflow can be designed to login to the control system application and automatically adjust the settings to reduce the energy waste by turning off the Lights/heating and cooling systems.

This sustainable automation solution can be implemented in buildings, industrial facilities, data centres, Shopping centres and Corporate companies, can lead to significant energy savings and also leveraged to any consumption-based usage types such as electricity, gas, internet, water etc.,
