Smart Energy Management is Net Zero from Day One

As part of the Net Zero agenda, the UK is on a mission to decarbonize all sectors of the UK economy and to reach the Net Zero target by 2050. With the UK Government imposing stringent laws and regulations to mitigate carbon emissions, all businesses are required to comply and adapt to the change. Certainly, many businesses have made Net-Zero commitments by implementing carbon reduction initiatives and investing in carbon-offsetting opportunities. However, businesses struggle to prove their net-zero concept with no sense of direction and then struggle to quantify their progress and emissions.

What is smart energy management?

Smart energy management has proven to be a vital element for any business to propel and pursue an efficient Net Zero pathway. Using smart technology and software tools, it allows businesses to become more carbon-conscious and sustainable by monitoring, controlling, optimizing, and maintaining operational performances of their assets. Specifically, these are examples of smart energy management solutions:

  • Building Management Systems (BMS) – A computer-based control system with IoT-enabled features, which allows remote access to a fully managed, connected building. It also augments real-time data insight over electrical-consuming equipment using smart metering, which can help find energy and carbon saving opportunities.
  • Internal air quality – With the integration of BMS, businesses can monitor and assess the internal conditions of their facilities such as the levels of CO2, VOCs and particulates. This will help open opportunities to reduce these pollutants.
  • The deployment of on-site smart energy technologies and storage such as solar PV – Generating decentralized and renewable energy businesses to be independently robust and disconnecting themselves from the national grid.

Smart energy management is predicated around real-time data insight and control and will serve purposeful in collating accurate data and determining energy and carbon saving opportunities. Coupled with ESOS reporting, it can place businesses in position to strengthen commitments and meet the Net Zero target effectively.
