You might have seen our energy productivity glossary of terms in a previous blog post. There you can find a dictionary of basic concepts that are sure to ring a bell for the most advanced energy managers. But even if you are a non-energy professional interested in energy saving and energy management, they'll come in handy!
Today we are taking a closer look at the definition of the term "energy consumption".
This week, the DEXMA data science team is participating in the 4th European Workshop on Non-Intrusive Load Monitoring (NILM) in London. The aim of this conference series is to serve as a meeting point for all European researchers that are working on the topic of energy disaggregation in both industry and academia to network, share research and exchange ideas.
As the digital transformation of energy gains momentum, energy managers are being bombarded with a growing data deluge. In fact, some of the most common questions we get from new DEXMA partners include "What report should I be viewing?" and "What energy data matters most?"Even though you might be working with a wide range of clients from different industrial sectors, there are certain energy consumption metrics that every energy manager should be looking at. After all, badly configured or ignored metrics will negatively impact your client's cost estimates or retrofit project plans, so it’s important to nip any potential discrepancies the bud. If one of the following analytics doesn’t look quite right, it’s a clear signal that something needs to be tweaked or changed altogether:
