Energy and resource consumption is an aspect which is an integral part of today's society. At the same time we all have to pay for these amenities, so it is only natural that people are looking for alternative solutions to reduce energy and recourse consumption costs. Energy and resource monitoring is a way to identify the potential saving places.
Energy and resource consumption monitoring can be carried out for both electricity and heat energy, as well as for several types of resources, such as steam, solid and liquid fuels. During the monitoring the actual consumption of energy and resource is fixed and the data are stored. During the stored data analys various aspects are determined: the energy and resource consumption dynamics (hour, day, week, etc.), the "peak" load, useless consumption of energy and resources, as well as potential saving places.
Energy and resource monitoring is carried out to understand, for example, consumption dynamics of apartment buildings or production process. By analyzing these dynamics, it is possible to provide advices and recommendations for its reduction.
