The need for load response – the curtailing of electricity consumption based on the electric grid’s changing stress levels – will only increase over time, especially as energy prices continue to reflect the growing demand for power.
|The Energy Professional's Guide to Data Loggers & Building Performance|
|A new 30-page guide from Onset details how portable data loggers can be applied in a number of building monitoring applications, such as HVAC systems monitoring, commissioning, Measurement & Verification, and load profiling. The guide offers practical tips and techniques on a range of topics, including data logger installation, monitoring plan development, safety, and data interpretation.|
With scope of responsibilities that typically include maintenance, leasing, financials, capital expense management and day-to-day operations, it is easy to understand how a FM could struggle with a critical responsibility – monitoring, managing and assessing power use.
As utilities strive to meet the changing demands of the U.S. electrical grid, more and more offer time-of-day pricing, demand-response programs, and other plans tailored to smart buildings.
In this day and age, any building owner or operator who hasn't yet examined his or her energy usage, looking for more money-saving options, is hiding behind the eight ball.
