Each farm has unique opportunities to maximise the energy efficiency of its operation. One way to identify these opportunities is to gain a better understanding of the energy consumption of a side of your business by implementing an energy management system (EMS).
An EMS involves the installation of energy monitoring equipment such as sub-meters, which can provide accurate data on electrical assets. This data can be used to identify potential energy saving opportunities.
An effective EMS requires active monitoring and continual involvement of site staff to identify energy wastage, optimise equipment use and minimise energy consumption.
