energy productivity Tag

If you work in the world of energy, it comes as no surprise that the "language" is technically complex by nature. While borrowing terms from a range of disciplines, from physics to finance, energy productivity also has its own set of complicated terms and jargon that are likely to come up in any conversation about energy efficiency.

As if that wasn’t complicated enough, the list of energy management acronyms keeps getting longer (IoT, EMS, aM&T, oh my…). To add to the confusion, a bunch of terms sound bewilderingly similar, or are used interchangeably even when they shouldn’t be.

So whether you are a seasoned energy professional or brand new to the energy game, you need to be armed with the right vocabulary - so here’s your arsenal of helpful terms to know.

The Energy Productivity Innovation Challenge (EPIC), an initiative supported by ClimateWorks Foundation and launched by Energy Unlocked, searched for 100 exemplary companies that are tackling inefficiencies in energy systems. These companies, dubbed the EPIC 100, together represent a movement pointing to a new energy system. The aim was to understand why and how their business models are gaining traction in specific markets, especially in China, India, Europe, Australia, the USA and Brazil – and how to accelerate their global impact. We are proud to announce that DEXMA has been named to the list of EPIC 100 businesses transforming energy systems around the world. Read on to discover why!

More and more companies are realising the transformational benefits of setting an ambitious energy productivity goal. They range from huge cost savings and improved energy security to driving innovation throughout the company. And crucially, many companies are achieving an immediate impact on profitability as well as safeguarding future returns. Companies large and small can seize these opportunities by committing to doubling energy productivity through the EP100 initiative, from The Climate Group in partnership with the Alliance to Save Energy, as part of the We Mean Business coalition. In this special guest post, EP100 Director Jenny Chu lays out 3 reasons why companies are making a formal commitment to double their energy productivity:
