Becoming more energy efficient is important for organisations aiming to reduce their environmental impact, and as a means of reducing energy bills and making financial savings.
Data loggers can be a useful tool in helping organisations
monitor energy consumption in line with energy management
regulations. Data loggers provide
energy usage data, as well as
count and other environmental information.
The Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme
(ESOS) is a mandatory energy assessment and energy
saving identification scheme for large undertakings (those that
have ISO 50001 Energy Management System are exempt).
ESOS is being established by the Department of
Energy and Climate Change (DECC) in response to the requirement for
all Member States of the European Union to implement Article 8 of
the Energy Efficiency Directive. In simple terms, an ESOS
Assessment requires participants to do three things:
- Measure total energy consumption across their
buildings, transport and industrial activities.
- Conduct energy audits to identify cost-effective energy
- Report compliance to the Environment Agency (as the
scheme administrator), and keep records.
See full ESOS guidance (open in a new window).
Energy Data Loggers can help meet the requirements of
energy usage and identifying areas of significant consumption.
Data can be used to determine how and where energy is used, to
identify energy consumption changes over time, and to identify
energy usage patterns and opportunities for reduction - all of
which can lead to cost savings.
The Tinytag Energy
Logger is a portable and easy to use device for recording
energy consumption. It accurately records single
and three phase power usage, and can be used to:
- monitor at the board level and individual pieces of
- build energy consumption profiles
- identify variations in energy usage, both over time and between
- identify faulty equipment or high-consumption areas, allowing
efficiency saving to be made

Data Logger product page.
Data loggers in the Tinytag range also monitor
count. ESOS has some suggestions on common energy savings
opportunities, and Tinytags can be used to help provide
information in many of these areas. For example, this can include
monitoring the performance of HVAC systems, the efficiency of
building materials (e.g. insulation), the efficiency of equipment
such as boilers and refrigerators, and helping to assess before and
after performance of replacement lighting and heating systems.
