More and more commercial businesses are adopting an energy management strategy. 2018 is expected to be a huge year for implementing these strategies. But why are so many companies just now taking advantage of energy management systems? James McPhail spoke on the subject in Forbes Technology.
“The manufacturing and industrial sectors have traditionally been leaders in energy management strategies. For these types of facilities, energy use has an obvious impact on the cost of operations, and management understands a strong energy management strategy is key to overall business success. Utilities have also historically offered these big energy users better incentives to curtail electricity use during periods of peak electricity demand. Now, businesses with smaller, multisite facilities are increasingly choosing to optimize their energy use to realize the benefits of energy management technologies.”
