Frequently Asked Questions: Verdant Whitepapers

What are energy management systems?

Typical energy management systems consist of four key elements: 1) sensors that continuously monitor energy usage and send the data to an energy management software, 2) an energy management solution dashboard where users can access and monitor energy consumption, 3) a system that sends commands from the energy management solution interface, and finally, 4) devices that are controlled by the energy management system. These can include air conditioning units, makeup air, dampers, electrical outlets, fans, and lighting. 

What are the objectives of energy management?

Put simply, energy management seeks to continuously monitor and optimize energy performance on a regular basis, whether it is daily, weekly, or monthly within a residential or commercial property. Common energy management objectives include, managing energy usage and consumption, identifying energy inefficiencies and energy saving opportunities, as well as overall reducing carbon emissions. Energy management, put simply, aims to prevent and avoid energy waste all-while continuously seeking efficiency improvements. 

How do energy management systems work?

Energy management systems (EMS) are automation systems that collect and report energy measurement data from residential and commercial properties within one convenient dashboard. Additionally, energy management software identify energy saving opportunities based on historical performance data and real-time occupancy patterns, delivering maximum energy savings. Indeed, energy management solutions are crafted to deliver maximum energy savings, reducing carbon emissions, as well as energy and utility costs. 

What is energy management as a service (EMasS)?

Energy Management as a Service (EMaaS) is a comprehensive energy management solution offered by third-party providers to businesses, organizations, or individuals. EMaaS integrates technology, data analytics, and expert energy management services to help property managers optimize their energy consumption, reducing energy and utility costs. EMass typically includes energy monitoring, data analysis, and the implementation of energy-saving measures such as automation via an energy management system. EMaaS providers may also offer energy procurement services, renewable energy integration, and demand response strategies. By outsourcing their energy management needs to specialized experts, clients can benefit from reduced operational complexity, lower energy expenses, and a more environmentally responsible approach to energy usage.
