Today, energy managers can directly create financial value from their energy and operational data. By utilizing analytics software, this raw and often overwhelming data is transformed into a tangible resource, guiding operators to reduce energy and maintenance costs and enhance overall efficiency and occupant satisfaction. In order to derive benefit from this data we need to be able to efficiently analyze it to find issues of importance and calculate performance metrics and KPIs and implement workflows that enable operators to be informed and respond to analytic results. Analytics software provides energy managers with the tools to do exactly that.
