Facilities & Energy Management

Facilities & Energy Management

Energy and facilities management enables the most efficient use of facilities, equipment, and power, reducing costs and creating a greener, more sustainable operation. Service providers leverage automation to monitor and control systems for greatest efficiency.

Why It Matters to your customers

Energy and facilities management solutions provide companies with much-needed visibility into their operations, giving them tools that pinpoint wasted energy and help reduce it. An energy management system (EMS) and energy accounting software (EAS) allow companies to analyze energy use, and then use solutions that automate energy control throughout their facilities—for example by adjusting heating or air conditioning or automatically turning off lights—which can add up to significant cost savings.

In facilities that involve power-hungry equipment, these solutions allow companies to test different operating schemes to identify how to optimize operations for both productivity and cost-effectiveness. Energy and facilities management solutions can also monitor and maintain controlled environments and enable managers to receive alerts when, for example areas of the facility exceed power thresholds or are operating outside optimal temperature parameters.

Why Facilities & Energy Management is an Opportunity

For a client struggling to stay within budget while energy costs rise, an energy and facilities management solution’s return on investment (ROI) can be quick and decisive. In addition, your clients with data centers or other assets sensitive to temperature or power variations, can use these solutions to prevent costly damage.

Your managed services provider (MSP) business can add value by working with your client to determine how to deploy the solution so it will provide the greatest cost savings and by assisting with monitoring and response to alerts. Offer energy and facilities management with business continuity  services for a total solution that keeps your client’s operations running reliably and efficiently.
