We are all aware of the modern demands for ‘energy’, whether driven by water, gas, electric or other modes, the world is consuming more and more that needs to be controlled.

The Importance of Metering and Monitoring Energy Consumption

There are proven business benefits to putting in place metering and monitoring of energy consumption.

According to the Carbon Trust, typically, 20% of a business’ annual

energy costs are wasted through the use of energy inefficient equipment. A British Gas survey of several thousand smart meters showed that 46% of SME total electricity use is out of hours between 6pm and 8am, and other sources claim many industrial installations are seeing a 50% reduction in efficiency from heat loss due to poor or missing pipe lagging. It is also the case that up to 60% of an offices heat is lost through the fabric of the building.
