The availability of massive amounts of data – referred to as “big data” – poses new opportunities and challenges at the same time for manufacturers seeking to implement an energy improvement strategy. Managing the sheer volume of data and it’s variety, storing the data in an accessible way, processing the data at an acceptable pace, requires an expertise that many companies do not have in-house. Not to mention, the amount of time and cost that would be involved.
For companies who are still at the beginning of their energy management or want to improve their current program, how do you meet the knowledge requirements, create smart data and not just big data and manage budget constraints?
With staffing and skills development a major challenge, it should not be a surprise that operations and plant managers are searching for the best organization to help with an energy management strategy.
