It’s time for business to consider an Intelligent Energy Management System

The challenge of budgeting is something which most businesses face. And more often than not these costs can be attributed to the high energy cost which business don’t keep a track of.

Commercial entities are generally charged at a rate that is related to their maximum or peak hour in addition to the demand charges. Businesses can thus make an attempt to reduce energy cost by monitoring and maintaining energy demand from one cycle to another.

Most companies go for a traditional approach. The typically go for a 3 step process, where they conduct an energy audit. After assessing energy consumption levels and trends down to the machine level, managers can implement process changes to optimize energy consumption. They then go for investing in high-efficiency equipment. However, a major drawback of the approach is that the returns from savings decline as soon as the monitors are removed. According to a report by Accenture “50% of initial energy savings disappear within the first six to 12 months due to a lack of continuous monitoring, analysis and corrective action”.

Resync’s energy management systems (EMS) revolutionizes energy management and offers a cost-effective solution for businesses.

Here are reasons why a Resync EMS should be considered:


It is extremely important to understand the demand profile of the business. If the only way you get to know about your peak usage is through your electricity, then you are already too late to take corrective actions. It’s essential to be able to forecast, with reasonable accuracy, your maximum consumption.

Load Shifting

With an established platform of ongoing measurement and management, businesses can take energy savings to the next level. Most business have peak as well as off-peak hours. By spreading the electricity usage over longer durations, businesses can lower their maximum energy demand. And Resync’s EMS solution will help automate this process without compromising on the operating activities.

Long-term energy saving plan

A comprehensive understanding of the consumption profile of the existing asset base enables much better capital investment decisions. Armed with detailed data and realistic energy consumption estimates, managers can rationally weigh the benefits of energy-efficient new equipment versus their purchase costs and other related expenses (decommissioning and disposal cost, production downtime, etc.). An EMS will help in providing a clear indication of such information.
