Energy Efficiency

One particular aspect of good resource use is Energy Efficiency. Energy Efficiency is driven by cost savings and ever more pressures to control emissions that contribute to climate change.

Energy Efficiency tends to concentrate on how much energy is used, rather than whether it is a green source of energy. Energy efficiency looks at how the energy is being used, rather than where it comes from finite or renewable supplies.

Energy Efficiency is a crucial element of any Energy Management system.

The Energy Management Advisor (EMMA) is a simple tool designed to help businesses to reduce their energy costs. It allows you to identify areas of possible cost reduction, including: boilers, building fabric, catering, compressed air, energy management, lighting, monitoring, motive power, office equipment, process heating and cooling, space heating and cooling, transport, waste minimisation, and water heating.
