Why energy monitoring is important for the end-use Electrification?

End-use Electrification Electrification means replacing technologies or processes that use fossil fuels, like internal combustion engines and gas boilers, with electrically-powered equivalents, such as electric vehicles or heat pumps. This shift is driven by the desire to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, improve energy efficiency, and promote the use of [...]

How Power Quality affects LED lighting costs in industrial buildings

INDUSTRIAL ELECTRICAL SYSTEMS ARE COMPLEX ONES The effects of Power Quality on LED lighting performance generally receive little attention prior to installation.  Power quality issues such as dips, harmonics, interruptions, can result in expensive, early replacement of damaged or failed LED lighting equipment. As a result end-users are forced [...]

Reactive Power is impacting your energy bill. Why continuous measurement and monitoring is necessary to determine the correct compensation system and to monitor it.

Continuous measurement and monitoring of reactive power are necessary to determine the correct compensation system and to monitor it to ensure that it is providing the required level of compensation. This helps to reduce energy costs, maintain power quality, and improve the efficiency of electrical systems. What is reactive [...]

ENERGY AUDITS and ENERGY MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS – Two complementary energy efficiency measures

Energy audits and energy management are important elements of any energy efficiency strategy. They allow companies to identify their energy-saving potential and hence to reduce their energy consumption significantly. In the EU, for example, Energy Audits are mandatory for large companies, but even small to medium-sized enterprises (SME) can [...]

Why faster action on energy efficiency is needed

How are businesses dealing with the energy crisis? The general feeling, in the first months of the energy crisis, was that the cost  increase would dissolve in a short time. Instead, it did not happen. Ongoing high prices had an impact on the evaluation of strategic actions that include [...]

Energy Sobriety: more competitive and sustainable

What is Energy Sobriety? Energy Sobriety means reducing our energy consumption by changing our consumption styles, uses and behavior. There are multiple types of sobriety: Sobriety of use, which consists in reducing the duration, use or frequency of use of energy-consuming equipment. Sobriety of substitution, i.e., replacing an appliance [...]

Energy Management Systems and their Role in the Energy Transition

What is Energy Transition? In 2015, at COP 21 in Paris, an international agreement was signed that set the target of limiting global warming by the end of this century to below 2°C. COP26, which instead took place in 2021 in Glasgow, confirmed the commitment to achieve carbon neutrality [...]

Sistemas de gestión de energía y su papel en la transición energética

¿Qué es la Transición Energética? En el 2015, en la COP 21 de París, se firmó un acuerdo internacional que fijó el objetivo de limitar el calentamiento global a finales de este siglo por debajo de los 2°C. Durante la COP26, que en cambio tuvo lugar en el 2021 [...]

Permanently installed vs Temporary Power Quality monitoring systems

Power quality is a growing concern Power quality is already one of the main concerns for electrical systems and PQ analyzers should be included by default in your panels / auditing services.  From one side, we have today a higher equipment sensitivity and from the other side the same [...]
