Environmental management is here to stay
Energy consumption and costs are and always will be important. But what about the other parameters that can be used to measure a building? This way you get control over energy, waste, reporting and emissions – and make environmental management part of everyday life.
Building owners, operations managers and tenants all want their building to meet certain standards. It’s about keeping emissions down and consumption low. It’s because we care about the footprint we leave behind. Environmental management is here to stay – and if you’re going to keep up with the rest, there are some things you just need to be in control of.
Daily control with environmental management
ISO certifications, Eco-Lighthouse, the Nordic Swan Ecolabel, “Don’t print this email” and source-sorting of waste are just some of the things we do to help make our workplace or building as sustainable as possible. However, if you seriously intend to put energy monitoring on the agenda, you need to include more parameters.
It’s not just about alerting people and managing energy. It’s about everything we do that generates consumption. Like water, waste, CO2, and not least: reliable reporting of the key indicators that matter. This is how you get over the line:
Energy monitoring – and a bit more as well
With a full-scale EMS (energy monitoring system) solution, you get full control over all energy data, regardless of the communication protocol used. This way you can take control of your own operations, with clear measurement and evaluation of emissions. It’s good for the environment and also reduces operating costs. And it doesn’t stop there either.
Because if you are going to be really energy smart, you need an overview of both past and present consumption.
- Are the energy-saving measures producing results?
- Is automation working as well as it should be?
- What are the buildings or processes where we should be implementing measures?
Energinet will give you answers to all these questions.
Collection of environmental data
You get to collect all types of consumption data in a user-friendly system. Measure energy, water, steam, pressure, temperature, or other volume data in litres or kg. With an administrative tool that is tailored to waste and environmental management as well as energy consumption, you get all aspects of what really counts – the bottom line.
Dashboards and reporting
Set up your own dashboards with what’s important to you, and get automatic report mailings. You can then identify discrepancies and opportunities for savings, while having full flexibility in terms of the report tool, tailored to your organisation and particular industry.
What are you waiting for?
If you currently have energy data in IWMAC, it is already configured for Energinet. Combine alerts, management and control of energy in a single complete reporting tool – and you’re well on your way to environmental measures that will have an impact.
