Most buildings have an automation or energy management system, yet operate with inefficiencies that are hidden and costly. This issue becomes more expensive if the building systems are out of tune, or not in alignment with utility tariffs or with energy markets. Double digit savings can occur if demand is managed with load limiting and shaping capabilities.
True energy management occurs when building and energy management systems monitor and control environmental conditions in concert with energy market conditions. Energy buyers can negotiate better deals when their building systems operate at this level.
