Steve Van Duser, Meter Applications Engineer at Eaton Corporation offered his expertise to the #SolarMOOC to discuss advanced metering and monitoring technologies. In the process for companies making the shift toward a more sustainable future for their business economically and environmentally, choices must be made regarding energy use. Commercial and industrial facilities can benefit from advanced metering and monitoring devices and the information they provide. By embracing this technology- facilities can reduce their energy cost, improve their productivity, increase profits, and reach their goals towards sustainability.
Advanced metering/monitoring methods are an essential part of an effective energy management plan that can save a typical commercial facility save 10 – 50% on energy cost annually. Through the ability to determine when and where power is going and establishing documentation of patterns of energy use, energy customers can begin to build an effective customized energy use plan. Steve will explain how new methods are being employed to gain valuable insights into reducing energy consumption, satisfying environmental standards, and moving towards a balanced relationship between successful business and smart energy usage.
