Chair’s Introduction

Every organisation, both private and public sector, needs to control its costs to maintain a healthy balance sheet. Energy costs come straight off the bottom line and having the right data and analysis tools is the basis for understanding every part of your energy consumption.

Although simple and easily understood, this wide-ranging statement hides behind it the complexity involved in designing, implementing, maintaining and managing a fit-for-purpose aM&T strategy.

The information the aM&T group has put together on this website aims to set out and explain some of the basics (and a few advanced techniques) that make up this subject; before highlighting the ESTA members who have expertise to deliver a strategy for you.

ESTA’s Automatic Monitoring & Targeting Group, supports an effective, transparent and professional approach to supplying products or services but also aims to deliver useful information, best practice and advice to industry stakeholders.

I encourage you to read through some of the guidance and thoughts herein and to task us to provide the right services and technology for your needs.
