Four practical steps for reducing overall energy costs

  1. 1. Solutions Four practical steps for reducing overall energy costs Individuals and companies realise that energy consumption ‘rules’ have changed Individuals, corporations, and governments drives in motors, pumps, or cooling across the globe waste billions of dollars in devices or the installation of high- energy each year. This is due to traditional efficiency UPS can have an immediate energy consuming habits that were formed impact on your electrical bill. when energy was plentiful and inexpensive. 3. utomate – this eliminates reliance on A These habits must be modified for two unpredictable human behaviour and critical reasons: the steep cost of energy allows for the fine tuning of lighting ‘Energy negatively impacts profits and personal and HVAC systems so that the facility management is wealth, and greenhouse gas emissions or home can respond in an energy not a one-shot contribute to the deterioration of the overall efficient manner to dynamic quality of life on the planet. environmental conditions. operation, but a 4. onitor – easy-to-use software identifies M continuous loop Schneider Electric™ has spent years developing energy waste trends and areas of of improvement’. solutions that address this energy efficiency concern so that management can quickly challenge and has established a tested respond before money is wasted.
