KPI Library – Energy Consumption

Energy Consumption

 

Description:

In recent years customers and business have developed an increasing awareness of their environmental footprint. The consumption of energy derived from non-renewable sources is not sustainable and is likely to become an increasing cost to business in the future. Government legislation and tax incentives are increasingly applied to encourage the use of renewable energy and encourage business to develop more energy efficient practice. The measure of an organisation’s energy consumption (when compared to a similar business) helps demonstrate its efficiency level and environmental credentials.

 

Calculation:

The amount of energy consumed in a given period (KWh)

The value of energy consumed in a given period (£)

The percentage change in energy consumed in a given period (KWh)

 

Example:

A large data centre with a huge footprint spanning acres needed to keep tabs on energy consumption and so chose to measure the Value of Energy Consumed per Month.
