If you want to improve corporate sustainability and cut back on your energy usage, an energy management system is a necessity. Energy management systems, also known as EMS, track your energy usage in real-time and provide you with useful insights to consumption patterns.

Here are five telltale signs that your business needs to invest in an energy management system…

1. Your energy bill keeps on rising.

With all of the different energy-efficient equipment available in today’s world, there is no excuse for your energy bill to be going up each month. An EMS can help you reduce your energy expenses and improve your profit margin.

2. You have no idea what you are spending your money on.

Utility bills don’t give us enough insight as to where we are using our energy. They only provide a number of kilowatt hours and the balance you owe, which leaves us blindly paying our bills. An energy management system will allow you to pinpoint your energy usage.

3. You have power quality problems.

Are you experiencing problems with the quality of power you are receiving from your utility provider? Power quality hiccups can lead to downtime, which in turn leads to lost revenue. Power quality analysis tools will make sure you are receiving a consistent stream of reliable power, and can even send email alerts before something goes wrong.

4. You have no energy-saving initiatives in place.

There are countless reasons that businesses should make an effort to conserve energy. Not only is it good for the environment, you may also qualify for rebates from your local government or utility provider. An EMS can help you kick-start these energy-saving initiatives.

5. You need data to support your sustainability programs.

“Going green” doesn’t just save you money on your energy bill, it can be used as a powerful PR tool to create a loyal customer base. In order to report your sustainability efforts to shareholders, you will need data to support your claims, which an EMS can provide.
