For the past few years it has been impossible to avoid the discussion about energy monitoring and management. But what do these terms mean and how can you monitor and manage the energy in your home?
Put in simple terms, energy management means watching how much energy is used. Energy management means altering your energy consumption to conserve energy. You can simply manage energy by be conscientious and switching off things not in use. This, however, is an imprecise and ineffective way to manage your energy use.
