Monitoring and Targeting (M&T)

Energy Monitoring and Targeting (M&T) is rooted in the principle that it is impossible to manage what cannot be measured. M&T techniques provide feedback on operating practices and results yielded by energy management projects while estimating expected energy consumption for a given period. M&T draws on the following principles:


  • Monitoring: data gathering to establish baselines and monitor resulting impacts subsequent to changes.
  • Targeting: identification of reduction targets based on past data.
  • Reporting: energy consumption analysis to make informed decisions on the measures required to meet targets.


This energy efficiency technique involves a rigorous methodology:

Preparatory Steps:

A.     Site analysis and identification of main consumers

B.     Identification of other variables (production, weather, schedule, etc.)


  • Measure: data gathered automatically at regular intervals.
  • Define the baseline: design of a basic model using all variables.
  • Monitor variations: difference between data measured and the baseline.
  • Identify causes: subsequent to verification of variations, it is necessary to identify related causes, whether they are positive (to be repeated and fostered) or negative (to be eliminated).
  • Set targets: use the baseline to identify realistic and attainable targets.
  • Monitor results: ensure that projected targets are reached and sustainable.


Main M&T Advantages


  • Significant energy savings (between 5% and 15%)
  • Very short payback period (less than 2 years)
  • Energy cost management
  • Greenhouse gas emission reductions
  • Quantification of potential savings
  • Promotion of financing options for energy efficiency projects
  • Energy savings projections
