After having published our guide to the ISO 50001 certification, we are opening up a new discussion topic on our blog today on the future ISO 52000, a new standard which is being drawn up to measure the energy performance of buildings.
From supermarkets to big factories, companies are actively looking for ways to save energy in order to be more profitable and have more control over their costs. A great way to achieve this is by tracking, analyzing and controlling energy through energy management software.Don’t forget that, according to most studies, energy is one third of the cost for a company. Therefore, many companies, and, of course, the individuals working within these companies, have already understood the importance of having an energy efficiency plan.However, before choosing or changing your energy management software provider think about what you need, what’s your budget and what are your goals.
It is normal for energy professionals to feel uncertain as they take their first steps towards obtaining certification, and particularly ISO 50001 certification. In order to dispell any doubts you may have , and to help you to implement ISO 50001 in your projects, we are publishing and sharing a free downloadable guide on exactly this topic : The Complete Guide to ISO 50001 for Energy Professsionals.
This is a guest post by Giánni Sioras, Energy Savings Advisor for IndustryIn many countries, electricity is billed based on the electrical consumption (kWh) in a calendar month, but also based on the highest active energy peak (kW) metered on a 15-minute interval basis during the calendar month, or even during the total year.
One of the first steps to take when you start an energy efficiency plan is to decide what are you going to measure, your purpose in measuring, how will you measure it and which hardware you are going to use.At DEXMA we love to help our users when it comes to choosing a hardware device. We aim for you to have no headaches when choosing your loggers, sensors or other devices. We created DEXCell Energy Manager as a hardware-neutral platform, which means that almost any meter could be integrated on it.That is why we have more and more hardware devices added to the platform, like VMU-C EM from Carlo Gavazzi.
A few weeks ago we launched an API improvement that allowed DEXCell Energy Manager users getting an in-depth understanding of their water & gas cost, and today we’re releasing an even major improvement: thermal cost analysis. Optimising thermal can extend your energy savings, learn more about how to do it in our free recorded training.
A few days ago we launched SolarView, a new app to boost your building’s energy performance by integrating your solar PV production. With SolarView, you can push your limits and even convert your building into a power battery. Let’s review how you can start trying NOW this new app (and completely free).
Earth Day is celebrated worldwide on April 22nd, and this year will be no exception. But, have you ever done anything special as an energy professional to celebrate it? You should!Especially if you work in a business that involves energy efficiency.Why? Because you’re helping to ensure a better, greener and more conscious planet.
A few months ago we launched a survey to all energy professionals. We wanted your opinion about what would be trending in our market this year, but also about your challenges and what do you think that makes a better energy professional.Today, we will take a look at the results and we have an infographic for you to use in your reports, blogs or presentations :)
While keeping in mind the importance of energy efficiency, G20 Leaders strive to implement an Action Plan for Voluntary Collaboration on Energy Efficiency. The G20 Energy Efficiency Action Plan portrays 6 areas of energy efficiency work such as vehicles, products, finance, buildings, industrial energy management, and electricity generation.This Action Plan is shared among G20 members as well as other participating countries and reflects ongoing collaboration and knowledge, let's take a look at it to see what's coming for our industry...
