Energy management: manage costs and emissionsDiscover how a systematic approach to energy management can help you gain usage insights, reduce peak demand, and deliver energy savings.
- Managing costs - providing greater control and visibility of energy usage through revealing inefficiencies while, helping to keep capacity and demand charges down.
- Promoting resiliency and reducing operational risks - facilitating decreased reliance on the grid, especially during peak demand periods or trigger events.
- Lowering emissions - helping to minimize overall consumption, enabling usage at times when the grid is less carbon-intensive, and integrating with on-site solar generation and storage.
- Core Components & Functionality
An EMS uses a blend of hardware, software, and managed services - adding a layer of automation and immediate response capabilities to help generate detailed energy usage data. This gives your business real-time insights into problems and inefficiencies while providing long-term and itemized energy consumption information. The data can also be used to train machine learning algorithms for predictive analytics.
- Integrations with Energy Efficient Infrastructure
Once you have energy efficiency infrastructure like lighting or refrigeration systems in place, an EMS allows you to optimize the energy savings it can deliver. It does this by managing your peak demand - leading to significantly lower demand charges, which can make up 50% of your energy bill.2
- Integrations with Onsite Generation & Storage
With an EMS managing and minimizing the amount of energy pulled from the grid and delivered to the meter, onsite generation and storage technology naturally supports a facility’s ability to power itself. Whether through on-site solar panels or behind-the-meter energy storage, an EMS helps to harness your power more effectively.
- Demonstrating sustainability credentials to investors, stakeholders, and consumers.
- Meeting voluntary or regulatory emissions-reduction goals.
- Providing the foundational infrastructure to support optimized electric vehicle (EV) adoption and fleet charging.
We collaborate with our on-site partners to design and deploy user-friendly energy management systems that pay for themselves in savings.
Flexible financing options also allow you to realize immediate reductions in energy bills and operations expenses, without the need for upfront capital investment.
