How to Evaluate Energy Management Tools
The best energy management tool is not the most expensive one on the market, or the one packed with the most features. It’s the one that fits your needs.
To clarify: not only should your energy management software suit your current project requirements, but it must also offer flexible possibilities to scale and align with your business growth goals - whether it's for one building, a portfolio or even an entire company.
Of course, all of this has to be affordable. Not to mention the list of the latest cutting-edge features every energy professional wants to see, such as M&V Tools, reports, alerts, fuel tank monitoring, the capacity to work with any energy source or metering device…
When it comes to finding and selecting a tailored solution, however, it can get tricky to check all the boxes. I can almost picture the scene: your desk is piled high with brochures, quotes and provider offers… and that clock is ticking.
