Saving energy is one of the most important goals for organizations today. Fortunately, there are a number of systems and software that can be used to address this issue. One of the best tools to use is Energy Management Software (EMS). This software provides tools that can be used to reduce energy consumption and expenditure.
A few common applications include:
- Energy audits
- IT equipment management
- Real-time metering
- Utility bill tracking
- Carbon and sustainability reporting
- HVAC and lighting control systems
Benefits of Energy Management Software:
The incorporation of EMS in an organization’s systems can provide various beneficial solutions.
- Data Collection: EMS can be used to create an energy database for a company. Energy utility bills can be fed into the system manually, after which the database can pay the bills online in a timely manner. This results in an accurate database of energy consumption, and elimination of billing errors and late fees.
- Energy Information Reporting: As a reporting tool, EMS can be used to provide accurate energy consumption and expenditure data for large scale organizations. The software provides detailed energy information including the effects of external factors like weather on the building. The data is then aggregated and can be used to balance energy savings with expenditure. This results in reduced costs and enhanced data collection.
- Allocation of Energy: EMS can be used to assist the submeters to allocate certain loads of energy to specific areas of the facility in real time. This allows operators to make the appropriate load changes based on real time data.
- Operational Reliability: Specific applications such as HVAC, data centers, and manufacturing lines can be controlled for their energy consumption with the help of EMS. This solution provides benefits of increased energy management and operational reliability.
These various benefits make EMS an advantageous tool for organizations in various industrial sectors.
