"You can’t manage what you can’t measure" certainly holds true when it comes to energy consumption.
Energy monitoring systems are becoming increasingly popular throughout both industrial and commercial settings as businesses are beginning to realise the benefits of these systems. With new technologies, such as wireless metering modules that uplift data to the cloud for display via a web-user-interface, it is now even easier to have your own system, and at a much lower cost than even five years ago.
A monitoring system tells you in real time how industrial machinery, building systems, or any other equipment is using energy. Studies have shown that energy savings of 3 – 10% or more are not uncommon simply by installing a monitoring system and discovering energy or process-related opportunities. Monitoring systems can often also be integrated to measure and record other services used by your business, such as water, compressed air, or steam.
