The Most Important Benefit of Intelligent Energy Management

Photo 40352 20150826The savings and greater efficiency of implementing an energy management system are significant benefits, but the most important benefit is insight: Once implemented, the benefit gained from using smart data generated from the energy management system gives management a total view of their entire operation’s energy utilization, unit-by-unit operating characteristics, surrounding environmental conditions, and detailed performance profiles for each location over time.

With access to this total picture of energy utilization, operators can engage in additional energy cost savings programs, backed by accurate data and analysis, to further maximize energy savings and operating efficiency throughout the operation. For example, access to detailed, historical temperature data for each and every location enables facility managers to determine which of their buildings will benefit by further energy optimization measures, such as LED lighting installations, additional insulation, heat-blocking window film, and many other possible savings improvements.
