The U.S Department of Energy estimates that 20% of the energy consumed in the United States is used by commercial buildings, but that energy inefficiency means that probably 20% of that energy is wasted. These days no one can afford to be paying for energy that is not being used. Increasing efficiency is not only good for a building’s bottom line, it also has a positive impact on the environment, by helping to reduce a building’s carbon footprint.
Identify Areas Where Energy Savings Can Be Attained
Submeters provide key energy data that allows building owners, property owners, facility engineers and financial managers to identify areas within the building that are energy inefficient and that may need improvement. Areas often noted to be inefficient are: common areas, such as lobbies and hallways; HVAC systems; tenants with high electric consumption; unoccupied floors; retail tenants and more. This inefficiency is very costly; in fact, poor performing buildings can use up to seven times the energy of the highest energy efficient buildings for the same exact use.
EIG’s submeters let you identify energy used by specific loads or individual tenants. And EIG’s EnergyPQA.com™ Energy Management Cloud solution provides energy analytics and predictions, reducing costs and improving power system reliability. It surpasses traditional Energy Management systems by adding Energy prediction engines and deep insights into power quality.
