The focus story provides an in-depth insight into the advantages and features of the system, and how buildings can incorporate it for a smarter execution of their energy needs. Speaking with firsthand experience in our Walk the Talk section is Anil Khar, senior project manager at Cushman & Wakefield, who vouches for the proficiency of such a system and tells us how it has helped their organisation to be energy smart.

What encouraged you to consider energy metering and monitoring?
Anil Khar, Senior Project Manager, Cushman & Wakefield: Energy Metering is an important tool for better facility management.

Metering each client helps us to bill our customers and generate revenues in an undisputable manner. Also the losses can be tapped and reduced.

This helps drive behavioural changes and lower costs.
