Advanced Metering Solutions

The first step in energy management to realize operational savings is to gather detailed energy consumption data. The consumption data from a main meter is certainly valuable and can provide a picture of the site as a whole. However, digging deeper into a site's energy consumption pattern provides an even greater opportunity for cost reduction.

Meters

Getting detailed consumption information requires sub-metering, or metering at a level below what is normally required by the energy supplier for billing purposes. Sub-metering can provide valuable data about any energy consuming process or machine that functions autonomously. If the different elements in a process are equipped with sub-metering, enough detailed data can be collected to enable energy managers to adjust the monitored processes and reduce energy costs.
