Top 4 Reasons You Should Be Measuring and Verifying Your Energy

Top 4 Reasons You Should Be Measuring and Verifying Your Energy

You may have noticed that meters are becoming smarter and more prevalent in the past few years. Gone are the days of trekking out to a site location to get an energy reading. In modern metering times, facilities can log on from any PC or smart device and view real-time energy data, receive alerts on possible system malfunctions, and make instant adjustments.

Such convenience and ease of access may sound like an upgrade bonus, but smart metering is much more than a luxury. Incorporating smart metering technology in your facility for measurement and verification leads to direct cost and efficiency benefits, which saves energy AND improves your bottom line. We’ve compiled the top 4 reasons for incorporating measurement and verification into your facility management strategy. 

Facility Managing

  1. Identify and eliminate energy waste—Viewing reports over days, weeks and months gives a clear picture of what’s happening in your building, and what areas may be using energy in excess of what’s needed. By identifying and correcting waste, you don’t just save energy, you’re directly saving money!
  2. Monitor real-time energy consumption—Only by tracking actual, real-time energy consumption can you pinpoint exactly how, when and where energy is used within a building, knowledge that’s essential to making smart, informed and impactful sustainability decisions.
  3. Verify performance—Don’t just claim that a facility is running at peak performance, prove it! Real-time reporting allows you to show how new initiatives have impacted performance and efficiency, and help build cases for future efforts.
  4. Discover inefficiencies—It’s difficult to know what’s happening with all facility equipment at one time, not to mention the fact that small, unforeseen equipment issues can cause large energy drains. Irregularities like spikes and drops in energy usage can help to quickly identify defective equipment and problems before they become more serious and costly.
