Continuous Efficiency blends utility, facility and operations management to reduce energy use and spend — 15 to 30 percent on average. It also goes beyond basic energy efficiency to help commercial and industrial firms develop proactive management and maintenance programs to help extend equipment life, reduce downtime and fine-tune systems for ongoing performance.
In addition, the enterprise-level approach allows organizations to benchmark all their facilities, as well as compare them to like operations in their industry. This allows them to identify performance outliers and plan investments that will have the best payback across the portfolio.
Key components of Continuous Efficiency:
- Data Acquisition & Quality – Integration services collect and organize facility, energy and interval data along with utility invoices to provide a structured view of critical information to enable decision making.
- Remote Analytics & Optimization – Energy specialists paired with technology monitor facilities, identify energy conservation opportunities and the root cause of comfort and maintenance concerns, as well as ensure continual performance and verified savings.
- Software Visualization – A cloud-based view of energy procurement, consumption and sustainability data allows energy managers to identify non-optimized facilities, equipment and behaviors, and prioritize energy efficiency projects based on the anticipated return on investment.
- Onsite Consulting – A variety of onsite engagements with Schneider Electric experts help identify energy improvement opportunities, train operations and facility managers, build internal support with executives, and design best practices to support certifications such as ISO 50001.
Continuous Efficiency is scalable to meet the needs of organizations as their energy and sustainability strategies, and facilities footprint grow and evolve. Managers can choose the support and technology most relevant to their current business and pilot new programs.
In addition to efficiency services, Schneider Electric provides supply and sustainability services globally, working with more than 4,500 clients with 350,000 sites and a combined energy spend of £30 billion.
