Advantages of Implementing an Energy Performance Management System (EPMS)

One of the most challenging areas to reduce OPEX within your business – particularly for bigger buildings like hospitals, factories and schools – is energy consumption, particularly without a designed Energy Performance Management System (EPMS).


An EPMS or EMS is a system computer-aided tool utilized by controllers of energy utility grids to manage, optimize and control the performance of the generation and transmission system. This system monitors and controls power consuming devices, like your fans, air conditioning (AC) units, lighting, and dampers.


Investing in a completely functional system might be an upfront investment, but over the year will decrease utility bills costs, overall spending and even boost your business’s ROI.

Four Best Advantages of Installing an EPMS


Improve Employee’s Wellbeing
When an employee is in a comfortable workplace, research shows that one’s overall well-being and productivity are enhanced. Both consistent temperature and lighting control will make the space more energy efficient for all, improving the employee’s performance and happiness.


Lower Your OPEX
If anything, the EPMS allows you to significantly decrease utility rates all across the board, which includes cooling, heating, water and lighting. The EPMS tracks detailed usage over time and stores it within its digital repository, centralized, so you will always have access to your building’s history of energy data. This will let you budget better for your building’s energy usage based on time, weather and more.

Instant ROI
The EPMS with the built-in cost-saving functions, include emitting less energy during peak times, producing revenue generation plans and identifying energy leaks. With these benefits, as a business owner, you are guaranteed an instant ROI when installing an EPMS.


Enhance Overall Building Performance
Not only does will this platform enhance the wellbeing and performance of your employees, but enhances the building performance as well. By decreasing energy waste as well as operating costs, you are naturally marking more space in your budget for other sections of business, like promotions, salaries, marketing and product spends.
