    What Every Building Manager Should Know About Virtual Energy Audits

    Posted by Danielle Martin on Jul 10, 2013 2:26:00 PM

    A virtual energy audit measures how buildings utilize energy, helping building owners to identify energy waste, adjust automated systems, and ultimately save money by reducing excess expenditures. These audits measure energy consumption using metrics such as energy bills, HVAC schedules, local weather information, and energy interval data to create an overview energy model. Unlike a manual assessment, virtual assessments can take place remotely – making them ideal for consistent monitoring of energy usage.
