Where to intervene
The smart management of energy resources is a major competitive advantage for any modern company, as it not only permits significant savings in operating costs but also improves environmental protection.
Smart energy management requires the thorough analysis of consumption habits and the implementation of one-off and progressive actions to derive significant savings from targeted investments.
One essential aspect of this process is the continuous monitoring of consumption and the analysis of consumption data. This must be achieved using combined and integrated software and hardware systems tailored to meet the needs of the Energy Manager. Such results are essential to the obligatory energy audits envisaged by Italian Legislative Decree 102/2014 on large and energy-consuming companies. They also facilitate the collection of the operating and consumption data that energy service managers (ESMs) need to compile documentation to access white certificates (analysis and consumption forms especially).
The key areas targeted by the process are:
- using no more energy than necessary
- flattening off demand
- avoiding penalties
- identifying mains supply disturbances
