Energy is one of the largest operational expenditures for many industries, and even marginal reductions in specific energy consumption can significantly impact energy costs. Many organizations embark on energy initiatives, but fail due to a lack of visibility, lack of base lining, and inability to quantify the benefits from the energy reduction initiatives. The PI System can help organizations understand their energy landscape, baseline energy consumption, create Energy Performance Indicators and determine impact of energy initiatives. This whitepaper outlines how organizations can employ the PI System to capture energy metrics to provide real-time and historical visibility on energy utilization. This will enable the base lining of energy utilization across an enterprise and will provide understanding on the impacts of energy initiatives.
