Being unable to manage electricity is a real problem!

Electricity is an indispensable asset and if managed effectively, can reduce operation cost for an organization

Energy management is to monitor and control electricity consumption, to save business energy cost, by identifying the wastage and opportunities to save electricity. Commercial building wastes 30 % of the total energy consumption which is the loss for the business.

Monitoring and Controlling energy consumption enable the business to reduce cost, risk and carbon emission.

Reduce Cost / Save Energy

With the ever-increasing cost of energy, saving electricity is often good for the business bottom line.

Reduced Risk

The more energy business use, the higher is the risk due to the increase in price or shortage of energy supply on profitability and operations. With electricity management monitor and save electricity and making it more predictable.

Reduced Carbon emission

Optimum energy consumption leads to reduced carbon emission and GREENER Earth. With carbon tax being applicable in most countries' costs, Implications of saving energy and reducing carbon emission are immense.

Metering energy consumption - data collection.

"If you can not measure it, you can not improve it"

Data is the key to understand the consumption and wastage pattern. Data at regular intervals and insights out of it enable businesses for a data driven approach.
The traditional approach is to periodically collect energy data and by reading meters manually (sub-meters at block/floor level). It is a humongous task to record data for large business, and less effective than the modern technology-driven data collection, which can be real-time.
Frequent collection and analysis of Energy consumption data make it possible to identify wastage patterns as and when the wastage happens.

Identify Wastage/Opportunities to Save Electricity.

Detailed data(at a regular interval or real-time) on energy consumption, help the business to identify the wastage. To ensure the wastage identification in real time, the building fabric needs to sense the energy requirement. Sensors ( such as light, temperature, human ) enable the building fabric to understand the energy requirement and identify wastage. The energy consumption data, coupled with sensor data can predict the opportunities to save energy.

Control - To seize the opportunities to save electricity.

Control is an integral part to save electricity, identifying opportunities to save electricity alone cannot save electricity.
The traditional way of control is to manually control or automatic at a certain time (i.e scheduled) but IoT enabled controllers are real-time and respond as soon as energy wastage is identified. It provides the business to cut down up to 90% of the waste and save up to 30 % of the electricity.

Electricity Management Process

Electricity Management is an On-Going Process

Analytics is required, remote analysis helps. Unattended building even after EM implementation becomes less efficient over time. Electrical devices should be repaired or replaced when a fault happens or have crossed the lifetime.
For efficient electricity management, strategy for implementation is the key. It revolves around People, Process and Product/Platform.
The business should focus on training people to make it part of the routine, process with milestones to seize opportunities to save electricity and invest in the right product/technology.
