Speaker: Matt Zabel

Session Description

Learn about Energy Management and the technology available to help you understand your energy demands. We will start with a utility bill overview and then review how an energy management system can help drive efficiency, lower your unplanned downtime, protect your people and equipment, and support your company’s sustainability efforts. We will also touch on typical facility power quality issues, such as a low power factor, and what the can cost your facility. Finally, we will discuss calculating a return on the investment for an energy management system – because technology is great, but it must have a reasonable payback.
