ONSET PUBLISHES GUIDE ON FINDING HIDDEN ENERGY WASTE IN INDUSTRIAL AND COMMERCIAL BUILDINGS
BOURNE, MA, October 26, 2011 — The first step to reducing building energy costs is identifying energy waste. Statistics on utility bills or name plates on equipment, while useful, are not enough to identify the practices and equipment that are contributing to high energy use.
Portable data loggers can be used to obtain critical energy use information in a wide range of commercial building types – from manufacturing plants to office buildings. The data collected can support proposed changes, whether it involves purchasing new energy-saving equipment or changing operating schedules.
A new 12-page best practices guide from Onset entitled, Finding Hidden Energy Waste with Data Loggers, describes how data loggers can be used to obtain information on energy consumption and environmental conditions in industrial and commercial buildings. It covers eight common forms of energy waste, and provides an overview of how to gather and analyze data and calculate savings for each opportunity.
Onset is the world's leading supplier of data loggers. The company's HOBO data logger and weather station products are used around the world in a broad range of monitoring applications, from verifying the performance of green buildings and renewable energy systems to agricultural and coastal research. Based on Cape Cod, Massachusetts, Onset has been designing and manufacturing its HOBO data loggers on site since the company's founding in 1981. Visit Onset on the web at onsetcomp.com.
