Monitoring and metering your energy use

Introduction

As energy costs can be easily controlled in most organisations, reducing energy use makes good business sense.

You can monitor your current energy use to see how you're using it and whether you're using too much.

If you measure and record different types of energy use, it's easy to see where the best energy-saving opportunities are. You can then set measurable targets for becoming more energy efficient.

This guide tells you how to monitor, measure and manage energy use in your business. It helps you analyse your energy bills, assess your energy use and shows how metering technology can help reduce your costs and carbon emissions. It also provides a practical overview of how to conduct an energy walk round.
