Understanding the Role of Analytics as a Strategic Tool for Proactive Energy Management

Approved for 1 AIA LU


The race to meet GHG reduction targets continues as organizations are continually thinking of ways to become more proactive and efficient in their use of resources. Energy Management and Information Systems – commonly referred to as EMIS – are supervisory tools designed to help manage building energy use and achieve sustainability goals.

Whether your organization is still considering EMIS solutions, is in the process of implementing one, or is a seasoned EMIS adopter, this webinar shall provide helpful content at each stage of your EMIS journey. This session includes:

  • an overview of current and evolving technology,
  • examples on how a supervisory platform is being leveraged to improve occupant comfort and optimize system operation, and
  • best practices to help integrate analytics into current operational workflows.

The countless cloud applications available today are all trying to convince us that we can and should be more efficient. EMIS tools are no different, but what is crucial, is how these tools are being integrated at the operational level. Today, organizations are asking questions such as, “Do we really need an EMIS if we already have a Building Automation System (BAS)?”, “What is the roadmap for a successful implementation of our chosen EMIS?”, and “How can our EMIS help us become more proactive?”

In this webinar, we not only present EMIS technology as a strategic and operational tool but also discuss how this technology needs to be paired with continuous improvement processes such as Energy Management Systems (EnMS) and Monitored-Based Commissioning (MBCx) practices – setting us up on a journey towards proactive energy management.
