What are submeters, exactly, and why should they be in your building? Join us to understand the best applications and benefits of submetering and power management systems. This webinar will offer some solutions for common issues with submeters, such as purchasing barriers, and provide an opportunity to hear from customers that have installed submeters in their own buildings effectively. We will also review common electrical loads in which submetering is useful, as well as the advantages of investing in a power monitoring system.

You will learn why submetering is necessary and what to consider before purchasing a system. We'll cover topics such as purchasing options, the benefits of different system types, and the level of data management needed to make the most of the systems' information. Among other use cases, you'll learn how analyzing submetering data can help identify facility inefficiencies.

As a result of this webinar you will be able to:

  1. Match important features of submetering options with common applications
  2. Identify the planning that goes into purchasing a submetering system
  3. Discuss results of successful submetering installations in terms of savings and system performance
