This article explains what "energy management" is, why it's important, and how you can use it to save energy.

What is energy management?
"Energy management" is a term that has a number of meanings, but we're mainly concerned with the one that relates to saving energy in businesses, public-sector/government organizations, and homes.

Why is it important?
Energy management is the key to saving energy in your organization. Much of the importance of energy saving stems from the global need to save energy - this global need affects energy prices, emissions targets, and legislation, all of which lead to several compelling reasons why you should save energy at your organization specifically.

  1. Metering your energy consumption and collecting the data
  2. Finding and quantifying opportunities to save energy
  3. Targeting the opportunities to save energy
