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:

For manufacturers to be competitive in the 4th industrial revolution, reducing production costs is key. One way to achieve this is by creating a solid strategy when it comes to energy management in industry 4.0.In this special guest post, hear from Industrial Director Josep Centelles i Estévez, whose manufacturing company Gamo Outdoor managed to save more than 20% in annual energy costs.Read on to find out how they did it:

Every energy manager knows how useful energy management software is in delivering the analysis and control capabilities their customers need to make smarter energy decisions, lower energy costs more effectively and increase overall energy productivity. But did you ever stop to consider how the quality of the energy decisions you and your clients make is directly influenced by the quality of the data you base them on?

It’s one of the first things you reach for when your clients ask for energy savings advice: your trusty submetering, datalogger and energy monitoring hardware catalogue. But when those same customers see the final installation price tag, especially for large building portfolios, their eyes start to water and they begin to have second thoughts… Sounds familiar? Sick of risking so many energy efficiency projects on astronomical hardware costs? Good news, energy managers: now you can skip the risk and the guesswork entirely. In our next free online training on November 9th, we’ll show you how to generate zero-touch energy savings in the cloud.

As the digital transformation of energy gains momentum, energy managers are being bombarded with a growing data deluge. In fact, some of the most common questions we get from new DEXMA partners include "What report should I be viewing?" and "What energy data matters most?"Even though you might be working with a wide range of clients from different industrial sectors, there are certain energy consumption metrics that every energy manager should be looking at. After all, badly configured or ignored metrics will negatively impact your client's cost estimates or retrofit project plans, so it’s important to nip any potential discrepancies the bud. If one of the following analytics doesn’t look quite right, it’s a clear signal that something needs to be tweaked or changed altogether:
