Optimising energy usage across a range of business activities to reduce energy consumption, increase efficiency, and lower costs is key to meeting carbon reduction obligations as well as making immediate savings to the P&L. Market participants involve a range of activities such as measuring energy usage, identifying wastage, implementing energy-saving strategies, and monitoring energy usage.
In the commercial and industrial sectors, energy management often involves advanced, bespoke systems, such as energy management software, to monitor and control energy use in specific environments. In the residential sector, energy management more often involves simpler practices such as using energy-efficient appliances and smart-monitoring devices.
Effective energy management is becoming increasingly important to businesses due to the rising cost of energy, the need to reduce carbon emissions, and the desire for sustainability from investors.
