It has been proven that smart metering, applied to energy consumption, can reduce consumption by an average of 15%. Measuring consumption in real time allows us to understand

But other studies somewhat contradict these studies, with reductions of around 2%?
The reasons for this difference?

  • Lack of knowledge in the actions to take, based on measured consumption, to reduce them
  • The absence of a strategy in terms of energy efficiency. What do we want to achieve, by what horizon?
  • Lack of follow-up over time. Reducing consumption is often linked to changes in behavior and habits. We must be able to keep these commitments over time

We have achieved spectacular results with some clients. What we learned in these projects is that it is necessary

  • define the objectives that we want to achieve: what savings, by what deadline, with what budget
  • define KPIs (for example in kWh/m2/year, kWh/employee/year, etc.)
  • clearly communicate your ambitions in the company, because everyone will have to contribute
  • have a person in charge of this project, in the medium/long term
  • train this person, or call on external help for monitoring
  • monitor KPIs over time, because bad habits can return very quickly

Energy efficiency requires smart metering, and this is achieved over time. The financial gains can be very significant.
