The concept behind Energy Management Software (EMS) is not a completely new idea. There have been various softwares around for quite some time. Very simple early word processors lacked many essential features we take for granted today. As technology paced, more features were added. Now modern word processors have the ability to perform many new operations. Energy management software is very similar to word processing except instead of checking a document for errors you are checking a facility.
To decide which system is best suited for you, study the basics of making up an energy management software system. At the initial level, EMS should perform the task of collecting energy data in real time each minute and should report, engage and monitor the data in a comprehensive manner. A detailed EMS should not only facilitate operation personnel and engineers, but it should also have the capability of engaging those that reside in the building on a daily basis.
In addition to being able to report, monitor and engage, an energy management system must also look for errors. So if you ask whether there is an EMS that examines a user’s facility and checks for errors or ways the user could more efficiently use their energy, the answer is YES!
