With skyrocketing demand and costs, the present day consumers—from manufacturing plants to commercial buildings—are keen on implementing energy management programs in a bid to meet their energy consumption goals while identifying possible energy improvement avenues at a site. An Energy Management System (EMS) provides an energy monitoring system which encompasses a centralized power monitoring and control facility that contributes to substantial savings in the overall energy costs.
EMS is positioned to deliver real benefits when the energy management efforts revolve around the ideology that energy is an integrated, strategic asset and a key component that adds up to the cost of the operations. An EMS is designed to improve an organization’s bottom line while helping the creation of a greener global economy. Future oriented EMS solutions for centralized and de-centralized energy management provide an electric power system with tools that augment the availability of its network, responds promptly to malfunctions, and substantially reduces the risk of outages. Some of the advanced functionalities of an EMS include enhanced grid reliability, minimal system support costs, and a secure system that conforms with worldwide regulatory requirements.
