Alt Energy Magazine Feature: Benchmarking Commercial Building Energy Use Per Square Foot

Michael Davies, SVP of Analytics & IoT at Iota, authored an expert article for Alt Energy Magazine, a leading trade magazine for alternative energy with an emphasis on the state of the art and on the horizon technologies. In this article, he breaks down the average energy consumption per square foot, by industry, for commercial buildings. With HVAC and lighting systems driving much of the energy expense across most industries, Michael proposes Internet of Things (IoT) solutions to gather real-time energy use for comparison against established industry benchmarks. This granular data identifies exactly where potential high yielding opportunities exist within each building system to reduce both energy consumption and demand – saving money.
