ARCHIBUS Applications: Energy Management

The purpose of ARCHIBUS’ Energy Management Application is to track and manage energy use to control costs, reduce carbon footprint, and mitigate risk, something we all want to do!

Benefits

  • Lowers annual energy costs, typically by 5% (or approximately $0.10 – 0.20 USD per square foot of space/year) and reduces carbon footprint
  • Provides audit capabilities to easily access, aggregate, and evaluate consumption patterns as the basis to renegotiate rates and consolidate energy providers
  • Reduces business risk and exposure to changes in energy costs or carbon emissions regulation through “what-if” analyses
  • Improves decision-making by aligning energy spending to organizational priorities

Graphical dashboard views, such as Utility Cost with Consumption (by building and billing period) shown above, simplify visualization and analysis while improving decision support for energy management strategies.

With increasing utility costs, mandates to reduce carbon emissions, and sustainability efforts gaining more visibility, effective energy management has become even more important for organizations. ARCHIBUS Energy Management provides the means to easily aggregate, evaluate, and optimize energy and utility spending decisions to reduce unnecessary consumption and costs. Unlike spreadsheets or finance software alone, Energy Management helps users correlate and manage extensive cost data with real-time facility and infrastructure portfolio information to track energy expenditures against a business plan or objective benchmarks.

Conversations with Todd: Automatic energy feeds into data management

Bob: You talk about NOAA and getting that information. How often and to what pieces of information do you synchronize? How does that work?

 

Todd: Every building is associated with a weather station that is nearby. Each night, ARCHIBUS pulls across updated weather information for that weather station so you can compare energy usage to the real time weather data as it becomes available.
