An Energy Management Information System (EMIS) is a software tool that stores, analyzes, and displays energy consumption data. The challenge for potential users of EMIS is that the number of commercially-available EMIS tools has increased dramatically over the past ten years, as have the analytical and reporting capabilities of the tools. Picking your way through the options is complex, especially when the software may need to be accompanied by hardware updates for data gathering. Organizations need to determine how to prepare themselves to make best use of the EMIS tool they select.
An Energy Management Information System (EMIS) is a software tool that stores, analyzes, and displays energy consumption data. The challenge for organizations that are new users of EMIS is that the software is often deployed by people who are very skilled at energy management but have less experience in rolling out complicated software across an organization. Picking your way through the options is complex, especially when the software may need to be accompanied by hardware updates for data gathering. As a result, organizations may find themselves settling into a pattern of using the software that does not maximize the benefits to the staff members who make decisions that affect energy use.
Energy Management Information Systems (EMIS) are software tools that store, analyze, and display energy consumption data. The market is characterized by a growing pool of EMIS vendors and varying levels of rigor and analytical approaches employed by the tools. To assist its utility stakeholders, the Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance (NEEA) contracted with PECI to develop an EMIS inventory document features that could support utility programs and financial transactions based on energy efficiency improvements. NEEA initiated this project to develop an inventory for industrial applications as a way to clarify the capabilities and options for EMIS-enabled measurement and verification (M&V), and to encourage incorporation of EMIS into industrial Strategic Energy Management programs.
A Report for Program Administrators - This report builds on NEEA’s 2014 report titled Inventory of Industrial Energy Management Information Systems (EMIS) for M&V Applications, referred to in this report as “the EMIS Inventory.” Readers should refer to that report for a full definition of EMIS and for descriptions of EMIS features that are important to industrial customers and to program administrators.
