Energy Management Apps that You Can Afford

September 25th, 2012 by  


 
By Ashley Halligan, an analyst at Software Advice

As more technologies are introduced to oversee, manage, and assess energy management, more and more organizations are considering investing in systems and applications to help manage consumption. Additionally, many of these products not only assess performance, but also identify where operational inefficiencies may be occurring, providing a platform to boost performance and reduce energy costs.

In addition to full suites, many application developers and organizations are creating apps with specific functionality — and at very affordable prices. This is particularly useful to organizations who may be hesitant to invest in an entire energy management system.
 


 
Three products making news in the market right now are just that — affordable to any organization — and all perform unique assessments. Here are three products you should be familiar with:

Melon Power’s building information interface.

1) Melon Power ($500 per building) — Assesses ENERGY STAR benchmarks and reports scores to the Environmental Protection Agency’s Portfolio Manager

ecoInsight Mobile Audit for iPad’s Automated Data Collection UI.

2) ecoInsight Mobile Audit for iPad (free) — Performs energy audits and provides upgrade and improvement suggestions following online analysis of consumption

ASHRAE’s 62.10-2010 data input screens.

3) HVAC ASHRAE’s 62.1-2010 ($19.99) — Measures air quality and ventilation and assesses whether a commercial building is operating within LEED credit paramaters

These applications are great starting points for organizations considering investing in an energy management suite — or great as standalone solutions for specific needs like audits, ENERY STAR scores, or air quality measurements.
