Forecasting spend to buy energy smarter
Many energy cost drivers can be unpredictable. That's why some energy buyers forecast their energy budget needs by simply applying an arbitrary percentage increase over the previous year. The most accurate budgets address each factor that affects the overall energy spend and projects each impact specifically during the budgeting process.
We examine the past to see your future energy spend
Schneider Electric's energy management consultants look at the past to help you buy energy smarter. We use a proprietary energy price forecasting model to study how primary factors will affect energy costs across your portfolio. As we build that intelligence into site-level energy budgets, we also create a single, enterprise-wide budget—a critical component for any corporate energy buyer.
