Did you know that sometimes up to 30% of energy consumption within organizations is pure waste? For example, because computers, photocopiers or other equipment are still on at night? An average company that does not work at night or during the weekend still uses between 15% and 20% of the electricity. This is largely not related to production and can be saved without intervening in the process. According to EU research, regularly readjusted heathing boilers lead to energy savings of up to 30%. The average saving is 9% per year. These savings will create financial space for investments in your core activities and reduces the emissions of greenhouse gases.
Energy monitoring system
More and more companies have an energy monitoring system installed. Such tools not only continuously record energy consumption, but also report abnormal situations (for example, lights on on Sunday afternoon). The systems can also control the indoor climate (boilers, air conditioning), indoor/outdoor lighting and presence detection according to need. Thanks to IoT (Internet of Things), everything can be controlled centrally or increasingly via a smart phone. As a result, settings can be adjusted quickly and possibly temporarily to the situation. You relieve your employees and offer them and your customers more comfort.
From insight to energy-saving
By creating insight into where and when you use energy, you can also take concrete measures to save on it. By installing temporary or permanent smart meters and sensors you can measure where the greatest waste is realized. Subsequently, concrete savings measures can be discussed and implemented on that basis. In some countries energy monitoring has even become a legal obligation for companies.
