Lighting Energy Monitoring and Controls: The Electrex solution for Energy Efficiency and Cost Savings

.   Businesses are constantly seeking ways to reduce their environmental impact and lower their operating costs. Lighting, often ranging from 20% to 40% of the total energy bill in commercial and industrial buildings, offers a substantial opportunity for energy savings and cost optimization. Implementing effective lighting energy monitoring [...]

Photovoltaic, storage, self-consumption. The advantages of a single supervision system.

.   The integration of renewable energy sources and storage in buildings and the distribution grid creates a need for sophisticated control and monitoring systems to ensure efficient energy management and grid stability. These systems provide real-time data and decision-making capabilities that empower building owners and operators to optimize [...]

The revised EU Energy Efficiency Directive promotes the adoption of energy management systems & energy audits.

The revised Energy Efficiency Directive The revised Energy Efficiency Directive, including the new binding target, entered into force in all EU countries on 10 October 2023. It establishes ‘energy efficiency first’ as a fundamental principle of EU energy policy. In practical terms, this means that energy efficiency must be [...]

Energy Saving Technology Seminar 📢 We are excited to announce that Electrex will be presenting the energy management solutions at the Energy Saving Technology Seminar, hosted by our local partner ATC Automation at the Digital Manufacturing Ireland facility in 📍 Limerick, Ireland. 📅 The seminar will be taking place [...]

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 [...]
