Energy management tools are helping companies large and small decrease costs and increase profits. An article in Triple Pundit outlines three ways that building management systems are helping companies improve their bottom lines:
- Energy consumption data collected by building management systems can help facility managers identify equipment that is not operating at peak efficiency and make informed decisions about which pieces of equipment would benefit from an energy retrofit.
- Armed with data about how much energy specific systems and devices are using, building managers are able to more fully understand operational costs and increase operational efficiencies.
- Mobile apps and energy dashboards allow building managers to monitor equipment and devices any time and from any location, so that devices that are not working properly can be identified and fixed before they fail. This type of system monitoring also facilitates the reduction or elimination of scheduled maintenance.
