Expert energy analysis and insight for UK businesses.
Metering leads to data about consumption, and an understanding of consumption can lead to reduction, meaning less cost and less emissions.
That might be through influencing behaviours, structural changes to ways of working by engaging employees and users of energy, or assigning accountability for targets around consumption.
Whether that’s to insulate a site, install EV charging points, or upgrade heating and lighting, it’s sensible to baseline consumption from the start. Having that data helps build the investment case but can also help target investments towards the areas with the biggest bang.
Ongoing monitoring will show if you’re achieving return on investment, but metering can also have direct impact on whether you achieve objectives. For example: a business didn’t achieve their aim to reduce consumption by 20% across lighting by investing in ‘intelligent lighting’. We know this because their metering had the granularity of data to show that. The business then arranged with the lighting installation partner to reconfigure the settings so that the objectives could be achieved.
This may be automated controls, or immediate indicators to allow someone to interact and reduce consumption once the problem has been spotted.
