utility submetering, submetering systems

SubMetering Systems connect directly to electrical or other utility supply lines and measure the amount of resources being consumed at any given time. SubMetering systems are designed to divide the load into specific areas so as to measure the consumption in more detail for accurate accountability of resources used by tenents, structures, areas or even individual machines. These systems feed information into advanced system software for analyzing the data, which provides reports and possible ways to lower the consumption of resources.

Utility SubMetering systems typically integrate to building automation systems where data can be used for advanced modeling, tariff negotiations, load shedding, and other methods for saving energy.
