Smart lighting is leading the way in data-driven management, which can self-measure and report on energy usage, allowing business leaders to set the rate of electricity used and cut down on waste dramatically. See our article on energy audits.

Business smart meters are increasingly being supplied to businesses by energy providers. They can help to improve energy efficiency by providing accurate data on energy usage which can be used to change business practices.

Smart water meters allow companies to monitor water use per building from a cloud-based system, making it simple to develop comprehensive smart water management plans. They also support identifying leaks and waste and can support phasing-out systems and equipment that have above-average water consumption levels.

Businesses can now take advantage of searching for cheaper tariffs on commercial water rates, so before installing meters, businesses should ensure they are on the most cost-effective rate to make maximum savings.
