In this age of data security, utility submeters need to be good network "citizens" — collecting, storing, and moving data across multiple networks and into platforms for use by its intended users or building systems.
It's well established that the best way to reduce energy consumption and save on building operating expenses is to give tenants full visibility of their electricity use.
The rapid emergence of the Internet of Things has opened up the opportunity for property managers to supercharge their electrical submetering to becoming an essential element of a building's information plan.
Ready access to electrical meters for programming and status has become standard, but it’s not enough. A building’s meter management platform needs to go beyond individual devices to include how the meters are performing in a networked environment.
Microgrids represent a significant shift in electricity supply and distribution, and a burgeoning opportunity for corporate leaders, building owners, and property managers to participate in the growing economy of distributed energy networks.
Electrical meters play a key role in your overall building data information plan. Choosing the wrong meter can cost you money and time — lots of it.
With today’s open communication protocols, there’s no reason property managers and building owners shouldn’t be able to take full advantage of as many web services as they like — without restriction. It’s your data after all.
The rapid development of cloud-based applications and the evolution of networking technologies have set the stage for a radical change in how building services will be delivered and managed going forward.
