If you were wasting up to 30% of your energy, would you know it?
The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that on average “30% of the energy used in commercial buildings is wasted.” Industries from education to manufacturing strive on a daily basis to control costs and direct resources where they can have the most impact. Organizations that consume large amounts of energy can realize significant savings by monitoring usage and identifying inefficiency, a process that can often result in savings of 10% to 20% or more on energy bills.
Make your energy use visible. Then make it shrink.
“You can’t manage what you can’t measure” is particularly relevant for commercial energy customers. Knowing where in your facilities you’re using energy is key to managing it and then reducing costs. Eniscope real-time energy monitoring, manufactured by British Energy Saving Technology (BEST), gives you the data to manage energy usage and monetize future savings.
