In today’s world most managers face the same problems, which become more pressing since most of the countries are facing recession. The most common question in the current economical environment is: ‘How can we reduce costs?’ and it doesn’t take long for a company to realize that one powerful opportunity lies in improving their energy management strategies.
At this stage there are lots of software companies which provide Real Time Energy Monitoring Systems and there are a lot more which are planning to enter this market.
During the last months I’ve been researching software that allows a company to monitor their energy consumption and here is what I found:
- Most of the software provides real time monitoring and alert systems.
- In order for that to happen, the companies providing the software will install their own meters.
- They store historical data in a database which can be accessed at any time through their software.
- They send alarms every time the energy consumption rises over a certain value.
