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:

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.

Ah, 2016 - the year of fake news, celebrity deaths and cyber attacks, namely to the electricity grids of several countries. The biggest story came out of the United States, where the Washington Post (falsely) reported that a Vermont utility had been infiltrated by Russian hackers.Should energy managers be concerned about cyber attacks like these? Embracing connectivity thanks to the IoT devices of Industry 4.0 also means exposing buildings to potential security vulnerabilities, a significant fear among facility managers. In this article we'll examine which energy data security issues facility managers should be aware of, and most importantly, how to protect against them.
