Using Business Intelligence to Reduce Energy Consumption & Encourage Energy Conservation


Several factors make the reduction of energy consumption part of a company’s agenda and sometimes part of a company’s strategic KPIs:

  • Consumption of energy is constantly increasing and fossil resources are becoming scarcer. Due to this scarcity, energy prices are rising.
  • Environmental protection is an important aspect and could be a competitive differentiator as consumer awareness of environmental implications of energy consumption rises.
  • Legislation regarding energy consumption transparency and public reporting is becoming prevalent across a range of nations. (carbon reduction targets)


Decrease energy consumption and encourage energy conservation across the company’s facilities

  • Ensure monthly kWh consumed is under the yearly target (XXXXXXXXX kWh).
  • Shift consumption to off-peak periods (7-8am, 6-10pm)
