1. Energy information system: What you stand to gain

For industrial companies, an Energy Information System is an invaluable tool for finding out exactly how the company uses energy – an essential prerequisite for then finding ways to save energy. The data log can be used to identify and replicate operational best practices, set efficiency targets, analyse poor performances and estimate the impact of energy efficiency projects on future consumption levels.


2. What an EIS comprises

An Energy Information System is made up of measuring instruments, recording and logging equipment, and tools to calculate and display data.

Also known as an Energy Performance Indicators measuring system”, it means purchasing measuring devices, and buying or leasing energy management software. An EIS supplies industry-specific information to operational staff (operations, maintenance, etc.), energy managers and managers in charge of continuous improvement, energy procurement and so on.
