When installing energy meters, many companies overlook the crucial step of correct meter commissioning.

This article will discuss why, for building and facility managers, meter commissioning is more than just a checkbox and instead is a vital step that can lead to efficiency gains and cost savings.

 

Are you wasting opportunities?

Despite having energy meters in place, many buildings and facilities are missing out on the full potential of their investments. Meter commissioning oversight means that the data being collected may not be accurate or, worse, not collected at all. As a result, the opportunity to make informed decisions and enhance efficiency goes to waste.

 

The high cost of inaccuracy

In the case of building operations, accurate data is vital. Imagine your meters silently misreporting usage, leading to decisions based on flawed information. The consequences are tangible: wasted resources, increased utility costs, and a missed chance to optimise operations.

Consider the scenario where a facility believes it has identified energy-saving opportunities based on inaccurate meter data. The implemented changes, however, produced minimal results, leaving the management team confused and frustrated. This situation is not uncommon and highlights the importance of correct meter commissioning.
