Five ways to improve your energy reporting

Successful and accurate energy reporting is essential to helping your business be smarter about how you use energy, manage costs and meet efficiency targets. Make your energy reporting more effective by adopting energy management tools such as our customer Portal and the Energy Management Centre (EMC)

Here are five ways to improve your energy reporting.

1. Accurate data collection

Accurate, real-time data is the foundation of effective energy reporting. However, many organisations rely on estimated data because they don’t have access to a simple and easy to use platform.

The Energy Management Centre (EMC) is a resource management solution – powered by software and backed by our team of expert energy engineers – that allows you to feed in energy data from every part of your business. The centralised dashboard can be easily customised to help you make informed decisions every time, based on an accurate understanding of your energy usage.

2. Transparent energy usage and bills

Having increased visibility means that what you see on your energy bill covers exactly what you are consuming, without any unexpected costs due to your energy consumption going untracked.

The Shell Energy Portal gives our customers secure, 24/7 access to their electricity consumption data, usage patterns and billing information. This means that you will always have access to the information you need to make informed decisions about your energy usage and costs.

3. Establish a benchmark and plan for the future

Establishing a baseline picture of your energy usage is essential for tracking your progress and understanding whether the changes you are making make a difference to your costs. Having an accurate picture of the energy you use will inform better decisions and help identify opportunities to save energy and costs.

By centralising your data in one location, energy tracking software like the EMC can help calculate your energy consumption benchmark and track the progress of your projects against your KPIs. The energy usage data available through energy tracking software can also help you prioritise investment opportunities and develop robust business cases for energy projects.

4. Stay up-to-date with the energy industry

Staying up-to-date with what is happening in the energy industry is just as important as understanding your own business. Changes in the energy market can have a direct impact on your energy costs and options.

The Shell Energy Portal provides access to a variety of reports tracking the latest energy market information and updates. These reports help you stay up to date with the latest wholesale energy trends, including the electricity, gas and environmental certificates’ markets.

5. Access to data from every level of your energy infrastructure

Staying on top of your energy usage and processing it into an accurate report can be more difficult than it seems, particularly if reporting across multiple sites. Utilising a tool that gives you access to data from every part of your business is important to ensure you are seeing the full picture.

Shell Energy can equip you with the tools and support you need to gain a full, clear understanding of your energy consumption across every level of your sites. Our team of expert energy engineers can then work with you to identify areas where you could implement energy efficiency projects utilising the data from tools such as the EMC.
