5 Steps for Effective Energy Management


With the new year looming is it time to improve your energy management? 
Typically energy management involves the following steps:

1) Metering energy consumption & collecting the data


Effective metering is fundamental to energy management with meter data proving invaluable for identifying energy-saving opportunities. The more data you can get and the more detailed it is, the better!

2) Finding opportunities to save energy
Detailed interval energy consumption data makes it possible to see patterns of energy waste. By analysing your meter data you can find and quantify routine energy waste.

3) Taking action to target the opportunities to save energy
Having analysed the meter data you should have identified some areas that could be improved. Routine waste such as water use in production could be tackled by installing new equipment, a batch controller perhaps.

4) Tracking your progress

By analysing your meter data since you made changes allows you to see how well your energy-saving efforts have worked.

5) And repeat...


Effective energy management is an ongoing process to find new energy saving opportunities.

We can provide flow meters for virtually any energy resource and with many of our meters available with smart comms options for remote monitoring it couldn't be easier to collect and analyse usage data. Call us free on 0800 027 7786 to see how we can help.

OIML Approval for E-Series Water Meter

The E-Series water meter from Badger Meter has been given OIML approval according to R49-1 – for metering cold potable water and hot water.

OIML is the International Organization of Legal Metrology established to promote the global harmonisation of legal metrology procedure. The E-Series was found to meet the requirements stipulated within the OIML R49 test.



The E-Series is designed for water utility metering applications and features ultrasonic technology and electronic, solid-state construction. With no moving parts, the E-Series water meter improves accuracy and reliability by virtually eliminating the mechanical wear.

The E-Series benefits from a compact encapsulated, submersible IP68 and UV-resistant housing and an easy to read LCD display. Available in sizes 5/8” up to 2” and flow rates from 0.4 to 95 l/min the E-Series is ideal in any application requiring long-term measurement accuracy.

For more information on the E-Series please call +44 (0)1280 817304.
