Real time energy monitoring (RTEM)
“An important technology trend in the construction industry is real time energy monitoring (RTEM). When a building uses energy monitoring hardware and software, they can detect and diagnose equipment performance issues, such as incorrect setpoints or equipment failures; improve building operations and maintenance; and reduce energy consumption and cost.
The data from the monitoring can be used to help with on-site and remote technical support, to fix equipment, and get commissioning to ensure all systems are running at their ultimate best.
Even better, when you use energy monitoring it reduces carbon emissions, saves money, improves occupant comfort, and helps limit equipment emergencies. A NYSERDA-funded study showed that buildings that use energy monitoring are 63% more likely to achieve energy savings and reduce their energy spend by an average of 5.2% annually.
Lastly, when we are in pandemics, if your building has energy monitoring, you can run things remotely. If a problem arises, you can address it without having contact with anyone or going in the building.”
