Energy costs around the world are making facility and IT managers pay close attention to their energy consumption. Typical data centers can use 30 times more energy per square foot than ordinary office space. And large facility equipment, such as Heating, Ventilating and Air Conditioning (HVAC) systems and chillers, can account for the majority of power usage in some industries. Implementing technology solutions can dramatically reduce energy usage and get this precious cost under control.

Historically, most businesses were not overly concerned with the cost of energy because energy was abundant and inexpensive. Today this has changed and facility owners and managers are looking to technology to help them get a grip on spiraling energy costs. Opportunities exist for innovative technology such as pervasive monitoring and wide-area controls integration to bring a new level of insight and control to operations energy management.

The benefits of this new approach to energy management are clearly cost and sustainability. With cost improvements, businesses can stay more competitive and profitable, especially in intensive energy-use industries such as IT and retail. As importantly, improving energy usage is critical to the longevity of the world, as most prevalent energy source is carbon-based fuel, which is harmful to the environment. Reducing energy use is good business all around and technology can once again help to improve our world.
