What Is A Commercial Energy Management System

commercial energy management systems

With increased awareness of the affect that people have on the environment and inflation causing the price of utility bills to increase each year, many commercial properties have turned to the installation of energy management systems (EMS). These systems aid commercial properties by helping lower the electrical usage of the premises, which not only lowers the company’s carbon footprint but also reduces their monthly utility bills.

What Are Energy Management Systems?

Energy management systems allow commercial property owners to accurately record, trace and alter the monthly electrical usage of the premises. They are smart systems designed to help lower electrical usage of a building. These systems can centrally control all electrical devices on the premises such as HVAC systems and lighting systems throughout the building. The installation of a smart system device on your commercial premises can only be done by a licensed electrician. Utilizing specific firmware, it will be able to monitor and analyze the electrical usage of your premises and send you notifications about your usage.

There are two ways to view your monthly electrical consumption report. The first is via the secure online portal utilizing specific log-in codes or via a smartphone application, which you can access anytime and anywhere. In your consumption report you will have a detailed breakdown of your commercial property’s energy usage. This will also include information about where the most energy is being used as well as date specific information.

By utilizing the data and insights provided by your commercial energy management system, you’ll be able to pinpoint exactly where and when electricity is being used in excess on the premises. It will aid you in reducing your monthly electrical consumption which will in turn lessen your monthly electrical costs. As these systems are designed to help users use less electricity, they are also beneficial to the environment as you will be lowering your company’s carbon footprint.

Why Should You Consider Installing A Commercial Energy Management System?

Company’s already need to bear the brunt of increasing costs daily. Continuously upgrading office appliances to newer more energy efficient models can be costly. With an energy management system, you’ll be able to pinpoint exactly which office appliance is draining an excess of energy and you’ll be able to plan accordingly. With the data and insights provided you’ll constantly remain aware of the premises energy usage and will be able to take the appropriate action to reduce your utility bill.

Benefits of Commercial Energy Management Systems

  • Decrease in Power Consumption

    This will ensure that the operating costs of your premises are cut down.

  • Increase in Efficiency

    You’ll have more money left over at the end of each month, to improve efficiency in other areas of your business.

  • Balanced Environment

    You won’t be trading comfort for energy efficiency; an EMS will create a balanced work environment that won’t impact your staff’s efficiency while it lessens your operating costs.

  • Building Safety

    Your fire alarm and security system will be linked to your EMS. This makes it easier for you to keep an eye on the property and ensure that everything is well maintained.

Choosing The Right Energy Management System For Your Building

While energy management systems are costly devices, investing in your property will ensure that you receive the best return on your investment. By choosing an EMS that is not only value for money but able to consistently perform, you will be able to upgrade your system later.
