Finding Hidden Energy Waste with Data Loggers: 8 Cost-Saving Opportunities

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 what practices and equipment 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.
