5 Gaps in Energy Management that may be interfering with your results

Submitted by Aline Gonçalves on Fri, 06/08/2018 - 18:24
The Energy Management System aims to establish and perpetuate the culture of consciousness and care in relation to energy use through energy efficiency initiatives. However, without the proper care on the part of organizations, such measures, in addition to being isolated, become temporary significantly undermining management results in the long term.

The Viridis platform provides features to directly support the entire energy and utilities management cycle, including monitoring, planning, procurement, costing, measurement and verification, simulation, and optimization of energy consumption. The monitoring functions permit the identification of opportunities for process improvement, stratifying energy consumption in terms of different dimensions, in addition to allowing the quantification of gains in terms of costs and greenhouse gas emissions. The integration of monitoring data with the planning functions provides greater sophistication, consistency, and accuracy in the forecast of future levels of energy consumption and, consequently, about cost planning and its contrast with the value realized. Business Process Management (BPM) functions allow the configuration of procedures specifically aligned with the reality of each operation, facilitating the organization of the entire Energy and Utilities Management System. Finally, the Viridis platform facilitates the integrated management of continuous improvement projects focusing on energy efficiency, promoting strategic alignment from the conception, implementation, and validation of investments performed by the organization using specific measurement and verification functions. Learn more about our products.

Creating value through management: a case for energy management systems

Submitted by Thiago Turchetti Maia on Fri, 02/10/2017 - 14:14
Energy management systems have been largely associated with support functions for those directly involved in driving energy efficiency. Yet we may argue that there is a large pool of untapped value in different functions other than operational efficiency. How may energy management systems go beyond the hype and support, or even drive, new functions that create value in addition to reducing consumption?

Viridis provides an integrated energy management system that leverages several management practices in addition to energy efficiency functions. Dedicated modules include costing, forecasting, simulation, budgeting, contract management, among others. Learn more about Viridis’s products by following this link.
