What is energy monitoring?
Energy monitoring aims to provide users with information about their consumption patterns and is carried out using Energy Monitoring software that gathers consumption data, analyses it and then provides useful information directly to the client’s device. This shows users how much energy they are using and how it is used at any time of the day.
The data is gathered using counters or sub-counters present on-site or in the building for each commodity consumed (electricity, heat, water, gas) with the aim of providing a complete picture of energy consumption.
Furthermore, an intelligent monitoring system can also:
- flag any faults in real time and indicate what energy-saving measures will solve the problem;
- provide Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), such as the patterns relating to specific areas of energy consumption, intensity of energy usage and other indicators that can be of use in establishing energy targets.
