Generate funds for taxpayer essentials by driving energy savings
Local and state government agencies spend more than $10 billion a year on energy, according to the EPA. Municipalities spend about $4 billion per year on energy to treat water. Nearly one-third of the energy used to run typical government buildings can be conserved. Reduction in the waste in energy spending means more money for infrastructure and other essential upgrades or more money returned back to the taxpayers. According to recent data, investment by federal agencies in energy-saving projects from 2003 to 2007 helped cut total energy use by 8% and a savings of nearly $500 million in 2007.
Recognizing the importance of energy reduction, the Federal Government has instituted a series of measures which require that agencies report and reduce energy intensity at the facilities where they pay utility bills. These include:
Key to driving savings with energy reduction or meeting federal energy reduction requirements is the visibility into your energy cost drivers.
Identify the opportunity to reduce energy spending with real-time monitoring
Noveda's energy management solutions provide a 360° view of consumption patterns. Leveraging our real-time monitoring data, customers can uncover the source of energy waste and gauge the impact of actions taken to eliminate waste.
Real-time monitoring can also be used to optimize water use and prevent water leakage. A key driver for water management is the nexus between water and energy i.e. conservation in water use also leads to reduced energy bills. Similar to mandates for energy reduction, EO 13423 requires that Federal agencies reduce water consumption intensity through life-effective measures. Once again, to manage water use, you need to measure what you are using right now.
