Businesses are starting to utilise real time energy data and understand that it can help achieve energy savings and sustainability goals. Reduction in wasted energy, cost savings and increased reliability of data are some of the many benefits businesses can expect when using it. In this article, we’ll share some of the advantages of integrating a real time energy management system, like AEMS, into your business.

Without access to real-time data you can’t accurately manage or monitor the energy being used in your business. Having real-time reports means you can see exactly where energy is being used and when, making it easier for you to highlight areas of inefficiency and unexpected usage. The AEMS energy budget tracker allows you to see exactly how near or far you are in kWh from reaching your target. Using the system, means you will have access to clear graphs that enable you to identify peaks in daily activity and see how usage is split across business operating modes. …

Smart meters measure how much gas or electricity you are using. Smart meters record energy usage regularly and automatically submit readings to your energy supplier. Each meter comes with an optional in-home display that allows you to see your energy usage in pounds and pence. Say goodbye to manually taking monthly meter readings and estimated bills.

Smart meters are currently being rolled out across the domestic and smaller non-domestic market over the next few years.

Do I need a smart meter to start using AEMS?

No, you do not require a smart meter to start using AEMS. The energy management system accepts consumption data gathered from both AMR devices and smart meters. Usage information provided by your supplier or meter operator can be integrated with the AEMS system. AEMS doesn’t care where your energy consumption data comes from and therefore empowers all businesses in the control and management of their energy usage. …
