Real Time Energy Management (RTEM) Program

Energy Management System

What is Real Time Energy Management?

A Real Time Energy Management (RTEM) system is a cutting-edge technology that transforms the way you manage, consume, and buy energy. RTEM systems continuously collect live and historical performance data through a cloud-based or on-site system. That data can be analyzed to uncover optimization opportunities for the site’s energy usage. Sensors, meters, and other equipment, along with data analytics and information services, show how your building or facility is performing at any point, in real time.
