becomes more common, facilities teams are
faced with an overwhelming amount of data.
These data do not typically lead to insights or corrective actions
unless they are stored, organized, analyzed, and prioritized in
automated ways. Buildings are full of energy savings potential
that can be uncovered with the right analysis. With analytic
software applied to everyday building operations, owners are
using data to their advantage and realizing cost savings through
improved energy management.

EMIS tools are used in the
MBCx process to organize,
present, visualize, and analyze the data. These tools have been
available for decades, and their benefits have been documented
through case studies and research on relatively small datasets.
However, the past decade has seen significant growth in
adoption of EMIS, spurred by a far greater range of EMIS
offerings, improved ease of use and integration, a maturing
market for third party MBCx providers, and a broader recognition
of the benefits EMIS can bring to energy management practices.
