Why management makes the difference
For companies eager to become more sustainable and at the forefront of the energy transition, it is essential not only to monitor their energy consumption, but also to actively manage it. But what exactly is the difference between these two terms? And why is energy management in particular so crucial?
Energy monitoring: it starts with insight
Energy monitoring is the process of continuously measuring and recording (almost) real-time energy consumption. It provides companies with a clear picture of their energy patterns and habits. By analyzing this data, companies can track energy wasters and discover other opportunities for improvement.
It is the first step in understanding one's own energy profile. While monitoring provides insight into where and when energy is consumed, it does not automatically provide the means to actually address underlying problems.
Energy management: continues where monitoring stops
While monitoring provides insight, energy management goes a step further. It is not just about understanding energy consumption, but also about actively managing energy flows. Energy management includes implementing strategies and solutions to use energy more efficiently, reduce costs and reduce the carbon footprint.
The real benefit of energy management is that it enables companies to respond proactively to various challenges. Energy Management Systems provide tools and frameworks to make businesses more energy efficient. Whether optimizing energy storage, integrating renewable resources or automating energy-saving measures, management is the key to a more sustainable future.
Why are both important?
For companies striving for sustainability and cost savings, both monitoring and management are essential. Monitoring provides the data needed to understand where energy is being consumed, while management provides the capabilities to optimize consumption.
