How energy management systems help your business save money
One of the challenges that business managers face is turning a high-profit margin at the end of the year. Businesses must spend a lot of money to make a profit, and one of the areas in many businesses that consumes a large portion of the budget is energy.
Businesses can grow their profit margins by taking action to reduce energy consumption. One way to reduce the amount of energy your business consumes is to install an energy management system (EMS).
What is an EMS?
An EMS is a comprehensive solution for controlling the amount of energy a commercial building consumes. An EMS gives business managers control over various systems in their buildings, including heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC), refrigeration, and lighting.
Business managers can use an EMS to monitor and analyze the performance of a commercial building’s energy consumption. This allows you to identify areas that are consuming more energy than necessary so you can make adjustments.
How an EMS helps you save money
Installing an EMS in your commercial buildings helps your business save money in a lot of ways, including:
- Reducing energy waste — About 30% of the energy consumed by commercial buildings is wasted energy. This is energy that is unnecessarily consumed due to unused equipment being turned on or certain systems consuming more energy than necessary for simple operations. An EMS can help you control these systems to minimize energy waste, which lowers your utility bills.
- Improving the lifespan of your equipment — When your equipment consumes too much energy for basic functions, it’s likely to wear down quickly. This leads to the need for frequent repairs and replacement of equipment. An EMS can help you control how much energy is consumed by equipment for various functions, which can improve how long it lasts.
- Reducing your impact on the environment — Producing energy for businesses takes a toll on the environment and our nonrenewable resources. An EMS lowers your business’s energy consumption, which reduces your impact on energy production and on the environment.
Many city, state and federal government programs offer subsidies and incentives to businesses that prioritize reducing environmental impact. By installing an EMS, your business may qualify for these benefits.
