Energy efficiency is a measure of the degree to which something – often a building – accomplishes the same result with the least possible energy use.
Why It Matters
Energy is the largest controllable expense for commercial buildings, and energy efficiency has become a hot topic for reducing excess costs. From efficient light bulbs to efficient refrigerators, energy efficient equipment has become an entire industry. Energy management software can help you identify the most effective energy efficiency efforts. Simply by changing your building’s operating schedule or by reducing its nighttime and weekend baseload, you can save 8-20% on your monthly utility bills.
