Connecting a lightbulb to the internet seems overly cumbersome and complicated, not to mention ULTRA geeky:

Why pull a Sheldon and go through all that work when you can simply walk over to the wall and flip a switch? Most people don’t even want to fumble with their smartphone just to find their way to the bathroom. The truth is that the hassle may not be worth it for many of us. But what if you wanted to do more than physically flip that light switch yourself?  In this special guest post, Wesley Faulkner of Facility Solutions Group (FSG) sheds some light on the business benefits of the energy IoT towards better building performance.

Here at DEXMA we’re obsessed with Stranger Things Season 2, so we thought: what better moment than All Hallow's Eve to share the weirdest, scariest energy management horror stories we've ever heard… and how to avoid them, obviously!With that, get ready for the most frightening 13 Energy Manager Nightmares!Keep reading if you dare…👻🎃

If there’s one thing every energy professional knows, it’s that convincing clients or building managers to invest in energy efficiency is hard. Commercial building owners and managers specifically face major points of friction when it comes to implementing meaningful energy saving measures - especially when a large portfolio of buildings is involved. In this post, learn what these barriers are and new tools to overcome them in which artificial intelligence meets energy efficiency.

The ROI of your energy efficiency projects can vary according to a wide range of factors, including the types and technical configurations of energy-consuming systems, available resources and regulatory codes.But are you overlooking the value that granular context can bring to your energy reporting? Can you pinpoint the effect your clients' operating hours has on energy efficiency project ROI?Now there's an app to enhance your energy reporting power even further. Read on to learn more...

Biomass is one of the oldest energy sources around. At the same time, a great deal of confusion surrounds its designation as a renewable energy source. Does biomass really count as a sustainable energy source? Can it be considered an efficient source of energy?The use of biomass as an alternative to fossil fuels has seen a growth spurt in recent years, a tendency that is bound to increase as renewables continue to go mainstream. And of course, as with other energy sources, you can improve biomass performance by measuring and analysing its consumption, thus making it even more efficient.Read on to find out how...

Happy #EEDay2017!Today marks the convergence of a growing network of advocates, companies, government agencies, and utilities to showcase the benefits of energy efficiency as part of the second annual Energy Efficiency Day.The message of Energy Efficiency Day 2017 is simple: “Save energy. Save money.”Here at DEXMA, we get excited at any occasion to celebrate energy efficiency. But we were extra inspired by last year's #EEHaiku hashtag and the team decided to come up with a few of our own:

You've heard the Big Data buzzword here, there and everywhere... but as an energy manager, how well do you understand the importance of data quality? Does energy data quality control really play a big role into your day-to-day work activities?Here at DEXMA we know that it's important to take a much closer look at Big Data in energy management. That's why interviewed the newest member of our energy data science team, Juan Carlos Fernández, who tells us the importance of energy data quality lies in the fact that "when it comes to making decisions, it can mean the difference between right and wrong" for energy managers.Read on for the complete interview:
