What is active energy management (AEM)? AEM combines continuous energy improvement with a building optimization strategy that, when performed correctly, enhances your facility’s performance. AEM creates economic value by benchmarking and measuring usage against key performance indicators and goals.

The system helps you identify actionable information to fine- tune system performance while reducing your energy use and overall costs. With real-time data, learn how to take corrective action for increased building efficiency, environmental sustainability and increased occupant comfort. The end result is an “active” and continuously improving approach to your facility operations that drives effective business decisions and measurable energy and operational cost savings.
