Bio-gas Plant Monitoring


Energy Monitoring with the Stromfee Diary: A Look at Bio-gas Plants

What are Biogas Plants?

Bio-gas plants play a significant role in the area of renewable energy. In these facilities, biogas is generated from organic material like animal waste, plant residues, or specialized energy crops. This bio-gas can then be used for electricity and heat generation.


Why is Energy Monitoring Important?

Monitoring and controlling energy consumption (energy monitoring) is particularly crucial in biogas plants. Efficient facilities use resources sparingly and can thus achieve higher profits. But how can operators of biogas plants effectively keep an eye on energy consumption?

The Stromfee Diary: An Innovative Tool

This is where the Stromfee Diary comes into play. It is an AI-supported energy monitoring system. This means it uses artificial intelligence to analyze energy consumption and energy efficiency. It operates using a specialized technology called MQTT (Message Queuing Telemetry Transport), a protocol for data transmission between various devices.

Practical Application in Bio-gas Plants

Practical Application in Bio-gas Plants

Imagine the Stromfee Diary is installed in a biogas plant. It collects data from various sensors and evaluates them. Operators then receive accurate information about consumption and can optimize operations through targeted measures. The AI can even make suggestions for real-time optimizations.

The Role of Energy Monitoring

Energy monitoring is the systematic recording and analysis of energy flows. Various metrics are collected that provide information on energy consumption and energy efficiency. The goal is to identify savings potentials and increase energy efficiency.

Energy Management: The Next Step

Energy management goes beyond mere monitoring. It includes the planning, control, and monitoring of energy consumption. Through targeted measures, energy consumption can be reduced and efficiency can be increased.

Concrete Implementation Possibilities

Load Shifting

One option would be load shifting. If the Stromfee Diary finds that a lot of energy is consumed at times of high electricity prices, it could suggest shifting certain processes to more cost-effective times.

Predictive Maintenance

The AI of the Stromfee Diary could, through the analysis of operating data, recognize when maintenance work is necessary. This minimizes operational failures and extends the lifespan of plant components.

Energy Saving

The system could identify which parts of the plant consume a disproportionate amount of energy. Based on this, targeted optimization measures can be suggested, such as replacing inefficient pumps.

Continuous Improvement

The best thing about the Stromfee Diary is its ability to continuously improve. Since it constantly collects and evaluates data, new optimization approaches can always be found.


Solids feeder monitor:

An indispensable tool in industry and agriculture

The role of the solids feeder in various industries cannot be overstated. Whether in food production, the chemical industry or the construction industry, solids feeders ensure the precise feeding of solid materials. But how does such a device work in detail? And what challenges arise in energy management?

Control System

The control system is the brain of the system. It regulates the amount and speed of fed materials based on the entered parameters.

(Control system: Electronic component that controls operations in machines or systems. Conveyor belt: An endless belt that transports materials from one point to another.)

The energy requirement: A sticking point in operational management

Every step in the operation of a solids feeder consumes energy. Motors, conveyor systems and controls are just some of the energy-hungry components. Inefficiency in any of these areas can result in high energy consumption and therefore increasing operating costs.


Electricity Fairy Diary: The Key to Energy Optimization

The electricity fairy diary appears here as an innovative tool.
This AI-supported energy monitor not only analyzes energy consumption in real time, but also offers approaches for optimization. With hardware components that communicate via the MQTT protocol, easy integration into existing system landscapes is possible.

Long-term advantages: cost savings and sustainability

Regular monitoring and optimization of energy consumption through the electricity fee diary not only leads to cost savings, but is also a contribution to sustainability. Less energy consumption means lower CO2 pollution and a more careful use of our resources.

Final Thoughts: A Look into the Future

As technology advances and the focus on sustainability increases, intelligent energy management systems such as the electricity fee diary are becoming increasingly important. They enable precise control of energy consumption and contribute to efficiency and ecology in industry.

What is CHP?

Combined Heat and Power (CHP), also known as cogeneration, is an efficient system that generates electricity and useful thermal energy in a single, integrated process. CHP systems can be part of several types of facilities including industrial plants, commercial buildings, and even residential setups. They can use a variety of fuels, including natural gas, coal, and biomass.


Why Monitoring is Crucial

Monitoring a CHP system is essential for several reasons:

Regular monitoring and optimization of energy consumption through the electricity fee diary not only leads to cost savings, but is also a contribution to sustainability. Less energy consumption means lower CO2 pollution and a more careful use of our resources.

Metrics to Monitor

Electrical Output:

The amount of electricity generated, usually measured in kilowatt-hours (kWh).

Fuel Input:

The amount and type of fuel being used to run the CHP system.

Emission Levels:

Monitoring the levels of pollutants like CO2, NOx, and SOx.

Thermal Output:

The heat energy produced, often measured in British Thermal Units (BTUs) or megajoules.

Operating Temperatures:

High temperatures can indicate inefficiencies or impending failures.




The primary advantage of CHP is its efficiency. Monitoring ensures that the system is working at its optimal capacity, and alerts you to any deviations.



Continuous monitoring can predict when components like turbines or generators might fail, allowing for preventive maintenance.


Cost Savings:

Understanding the performance metrics can help in making informed decisions that can lead to significant cost savings.


Environmental Impact:

Efficient operation of a CHP system reduces the amount of fuel needed, thus lowering greenhouse gas emissions.

STREAMFEE electricity price manager

An electricity price manager is a type of software or service that makes it possible to monitor and optimize the cost of electricity consumption in real time.

It reacts to dynamic electricity prices on the electricity exchange by deciding when electricity consumption should be increased or decreased in order to minimize electricity consumption costs.

This can be achieved by the electricity price manager controlling electricity consumption depending on the current electricity prices on the electricity exchange or by purchasing electricity at cheaper prices. Electricity price managers are usually of interest to companies or industrial companies that have a large electricity consumption and therefore also buy larger amounts of electricity.
