Historically, many businesses have been primarily motivated to maximize profits and never had altruistic reasons to help protect the environment. Now everyone has been placed in a predicament where climate change and environmental degradation has led to unprecedented changes to the planet. This is spurring businesses to become environmentally conscious. However, businesses are reluctant to make that change, in fear that it would affect their main objectives and goals. This is where the problem lies. There is a common misconception that environmental sustainability cannot coexist with other business goals, namely profit maximization and perpetual growth. Businesses need to be made aware that there are proven concepts that integrate environmental means into a business, which can encourage innovation and disrupt the market for the better. Also, it helps a business to remain commercially relevant and resilient against any foreseeable climate-related risks. Therefore, it is upon businesses to find the best balance between business and environmental needs to achieve their goals.
Smart energy management provides a revolutionary strategy that can complement a business in helping protect the environment and reaching their business objectives and goals. It comprises of monitoring, controlling, optimizing, and maintaining operational performances of a business through
smart technology and software tools. It sets out to optimize operational efficiency and environmental performance, reduce energy usage, carbon emissions and costs, and improve people’s wellbeing. These are examples of smart energy management solutions:
- Building Management Systems (BMS) – A computer-based control system with IoT-enabled, which allows remote access to a fully managed, connected building. This optimizes real-time data insight and control over electrical-consuming equipment and helps find opportunities to reduce energy consumption and costs.
- Internal air quality – With the integration of BMS, one can monitor and assess the internal conditions of a facility such as the levels of CO2, VOCs and particulates. This can not only find opportunities to reduce these pollutants but also mitigate public health risk.
- The deployment of on-site smart energy technologies and storage such as solar PV – Generating decentralized and renewable energy can help a business to be less dependent on the national grid and reduce energy costs.
Overall smart energy management ensure that a business can fulfil its needs whilst recognizing the importance of the environment and the planet. Such that, this is the perfect moment for any business to be part of and implement as it can only get better.
