This ultimate guide to Energy Efficiency and Savings for commercial buildings was authored by buildingIOT and published on October 14, 2021. The guide explains the significant amount of energy with businesses, government, and commercial sites spending $190 billion every year on energy-related costs. the EPA suggests that an average of 30% of the energy used in commercial buildings is wasted. Looking at the rising costs and understanding the primary energy-use and waste factors will enable building managers to identify potential areas to target for cost savings. The guide covers many of the areas for improvement. HVAC systems, Lighting, and energy-consuming equipment and devices can have building automation and use fault detection and diagnostics with continuous and actionable analytics that helps to regulate high energy-consuming equipment and devices. Achieving optimal energy consumption requires the collection and organization of essential data for evaluating and addressing energy efficiency over time. With the right analytics partner, you can put in place an analytics system to fulfill this role, enabling you to project future energy usage patterns, and develop goal-oriented energy efficiency and cost savings tactics.
