Energy use is a large operating expense with a major impact on bottom line economic performance. Emissions are also a core focus of many corporations from the perspective of both environmental stewardship and, increasingly, tariffs. Despite these factors, many sites and enterprises struggle with day-to-day visibility of energy performance and are constantly trying to answer questions such as:
- What is my current energy consumption?
- Is my current energy consumption ok relative to current operating conditions?
- Are there areas/units/equipment that are over-consuming energy, and if so, by how much?
