Fun Facts and Savings with LEDs

The advantages of switching to LED are numerous*. Did you know: LED bulbs are up to 90% more energy-efficient than traditional incandescent bulbs. LED bulbs can last up to 20 times longer than traditional incandescent bulbs, so they don’t need to be replaced as often. LEDs produce very little heat, do not emit UV or […]

Data Integrity: The Key to Accurate Benchmarking for Your Sustainability Program

Benchmarking provides a starting place for measuring and improving an individual building’s energy performance. Energy benchmarking is often the first step in developing a comprehensive energy management plan. With energy benchmarking, you learn how your building’s energy performance compares with similar facilities nationwide. More importantly, benchmarking highlights areas where you can improve, which are opportunities […]

Wintertime Savings with SmartKit

A smart meter is a great first step to collecting data about your overall energy use. But how do you take control of all your building systems and maintenance — not just to reduce energy use, but reduce overall operations costs? ETS provides the SmartKit, a complete monitoring solution that delivers real-time data about systems […]

Find Out What You Don’t Know with Smart Meters

The adage “You can’t manage what you can’t measure” is spot on when it comes to managing energy costs in buildings. However, most building managers aren’t measuring energy use at all. It’s not because they don’t want to but rather because they don’t have the means to do so. ETS’s data verification service gives them […]

Demystify the Utility Bill: Understand and Reduce Costs

One of the most common concerns building managers have about energy costs is understanding the energy bill itself. Wading through a complex bill with hard-to-understand terms raises a string of questions: What am I being charged for? Why is half my bill not related to actual energy being consumed? What are utility tariff distribution charges […]

Real-Time Building Data: Find Out What You Don’t You Know Right Now

The adage “You can’t manage what you can’t measure” is spot-on when it comes to managing energy costs in buildings. However, in today’s connected world, it’s no longer enough to collect data after the fact. Receiving critical data in real time about your building’s operations and energy use significantly increases your opportunities for cutting costs […]

LED and High-Efficiency Lighting

We typically think of energy savings associated with big-ticket items. It’s easy to see how switching to a modern combined heat and power (CHP) system, or applying more precise controls to your boiler, can make a difference. But what about small changes? Can switching out a light bulb really save you that much? Yes! Think […]

The Hidden Benefits of Investing in a CHP System

You may have heard about the benefits of a combined heat and power (CHP) system such as lowering a building’s overall energy cost and buffering against power outages, as we discussed previously in ETS FastTrak. ETS has discovered another use for CHP systems that makes an even stronger financial case for building owners investing in […]

Replacing Your PTAC Units? Upgrade for Better Energy Efficiency and Tenant Comfort

Packaged terminal air conditioners (PTACs) are a fixture in apartments, hotels, and commercial high-rise buildings in New York, New Jersey, and other urban areas. They’re also typically the largest energy consumers in a building. Working together, ETS, Lowe’s, and Electrolux have developed a new generation of PTACs that is much more energy efficient. Unlike their […]

Is Your Building Portfolio Safe from the Next Spike in Energy Prices?

Recent declines in oil and natural gas prices are good news for utility customers, but the volatile nature of the oil and gas markets means that you can’t count on these costs to stay at their current low levels. Sooner or later, energy prices will rise again, creating havoc in building owners’ operational budgets. You […]
