Importance of Managing Energy Consumption Highlighted in Vodafone White Paper

LONDON--(Marketwired - Aug 14, 2013) - Managing energy consumption is important for organisations operating across multiple sites. A new energy management solution, Energy Data Management (EDM) by Vodafone, is helping organisations monitor energy efficiency at a detailed level. EDM's benefits have been highlighted in a new white paper published by Vodafone.

EDM is beneficial for companies in retail, manufacturing, the public sector and for any organisation that has many energy suppliers, different types of contracts and bills. In these situations, an overall picture of energy usage is difficult to achieve.

Without the right information, at a detailed level, it can be tough to understand the best solution, especially when you're operating across hundreds of sites multinationally. Individually, each system that uses power might be using just a few hundred watts. But over the year and across multiple sites, these power costs add up. Energy Data Management is a machine-to-machine (M2M) solution that can give you essential information so you can make better decisions about energy-efficiency policies, processes and technology.

Vodafone has now been monitoring its energy consumption for over 10 years and has smart meters installed in 40,000 base stations -- with a plan to extend the implementation of EDM in the future. The company has also started to deploy the solution to large offices and other sites consuming large amounts of energy. Around 60% of Vodafone's energy consumption was spread across more than 230,000 base stations, 25% on data centres, and 15% on offices and retail sites.

To deliver the results needed, the EDM solution has to fit a business and the way energy is consumed. To find out more regarding energy consumption and Vodafone's Energy Data Management solution, read the white paper here.
