Corporate Energy Data

Corporate Energy Data: The Key to Smart Buildings

Having access to your corporate energy data has a number of benefits that you shouldn’t ignore. There’s no need to wait at the end of the month to get your bill. You can stream the data quickly through your mobile devices with the right mobile solution. You don’t have to spend hundreds to thousands of money and time either. Plus, you get the chance to adjust your energy usage to save more.

Your corporate energy data is your golden ticket to transform your commercial facility into a smart building. Monitoring and controlling the systems within your facility allows you to analyze data and translate it to business intelligence. A mobile energy solution, for instance, can help you track operational efficiency, occupant behavior and energy consumption.

Here’s 4 types of corporate energy date and how they support economic and sustainability improvements:

  • Occupant Data. Providing insight into the people-side of your business, it is becoming an increasing priority in corporate decision-making. Performance and engagement of occupants of the building have a direct influence on your bottom lines. Data about people can help determine Scope 3 (indirect) emissions for carbon accounting.
  • Facility Data. This type of data helps maximize system performance, improve comfort and reduce costs. In order to support a sustainable strategy, all data should be complete – including lighting, HVAC and plug loads). It is valuable for monitoring energy and operations data.
  • Enterprise Data. Addressing core business priorities, this corporate energy data provides insight across disparate systems and data sources. It offers analytics capabilities to optimize your energy use and operations.
  • Distributed Energy Resources (DER) Data. It helps coordinate facility operations, storage capacity and onsite energy resource regeneration. It could also be extended to track and monitor charging infrastructure and EV (Electric Vehicle) fleets.

Investment in mobile energy solutions can lead to efficient and effective ways to track corporate energy data that will determine how well your company is doing, relative to your corporate goals. It can be a competitive advantage that direct visible improvements in how you operate your commercial buildings and offices.

Mobile Energy Management Systems

Mobile Energy Management Systems: How Do They Work?

Reducing your energy consumption can be accomplished in many ways. You can improve your home or office’s ability to retain heat or cold through good insulation, double-paned glass and other similar efforts. Installing solar panels can also lessen your energy use. Most of all, as part of managing your energy use, you need to know how much energy you are using. Your monthly bill may not tell you the full details, but mobile energy management systems can.

A smart meter can get much more information about your electrical usage than a traditional meter. It provides breakdowns of usage and rates down to the last minute – which can be useful for consumer and utilities alike. To fully take advantage of the benefits of this smart tech, you need mobile energy management systems that capture data and manage your workflows. By having access to detailed reports, you can see if your appliances should be running less frequently or only when they’re full.

How do mobile energy management systems work?

  • Displays current energy use, current cost of energy, projected bill and resulting savings compared to previous month
  • Informs how much energy is used in near real-time
  • Updates information regarding electricity use to reduce demand, save money and form new habits
  • Offers energy-saving tips and information on power outages
  • Remotely reduce supply of energy to heating and air conditioning systems during peak demand periods
  • Access and analyze demand data from electricity meters

Why should you choose mobile? Unlike desktop computers, Smartphones are continuously used to view e-mails, play games, make calls and read news. You have the information you need right inside your pocket. Mobile devices are geographically aware. They enable users to point click and send messages. They do not require internet connection to retrieve data. In other words, you and your employees have access to your organizational data anytime, anywhere.
