What is Energy Management?
After receiving your Energy Study, you are now able to make informed decisions on what technologies are most feasible.
The 10 most common Energy Management Upgrades:
- Energy Information Systems: a key performance indicator tool for energy that allows you to see the energy that is being used in real-time
- Automation: control of systems to operate only when they are needed
- Lighting: electronic lighting costs less to operate while improving color and quality of light
- HVAC: heating, ventilation and air-conditioning system improvements
- Water Heaters: pre-heat and manage the water being stored
- Peak Shaving: the ability to reduce peak energy costs
- Transformers: help provide stable and balanced electricity
- Variable Speed Drives: allowing motors and fans to operate at the speed they need and not always at 100%
- Charging Stations: charging electric vehicles, forklifts and equipment
- Battery Banks: store large amounts of energy to use when you need it
Who Could Benefit From Energy Management Technology?
Any facility that requires energy to operate. Some examples of these are: office buildings, restaurants, banks, retail stores, car washes, manufacturers, schools, hospitals, municipal buildings, institutions and farms.
When Should You Consider Implementing?
After you have completed an energy study.
How Would You Benefit From it?
- The Provincial and Federal Government provide rebates towards the energy audits, energy efficiency upgrades, and solar production.
- The Federal Government provides a tax credit towards your renewable energy investment.
- Environmental responsibility where your investment can directly impact the public perception of your business and your brand.
- Reduce and stabilize your lifetime energy costs.
Once you have completed your energy management upgrades, you can consider producing your OWN electricity! This grid-tied step will allow you to offset your energy costs lowering your energy costs even further. For more information on this process visit our Solar Energy page.
