Event Details


Expose hidden, avoidable energy losses

Monitoring and targeting is an activity that should be central to any effective programme of energy management. Once you have mastered the basic techniques taught at this workshop you will be able to
  • get reliable early warnings when energy is being wasted because of hidden problems;
  • instantly prioritise exceptions according to their cost;
  • get insights into underlying patterns of consumption which reveal energy saving opportunities;
  • rapidly verify the effects of energy-saving measures regardless of their nature;
  • monitor the long-term efficacy of improvement measures; and
  • do more precise budget forecasts.
The trick is to account correctly for factors like the weather (or changes in product mix and output, etc). You will learn simple but powerful strategies for dealing with this.

Condense all your significant results into a few lines

Use sensible views of complex data


This workshop is suitable for those who want to implement a new M&T scheme or make an existing one more effective. It is intended for facilities managers, plant engineers, and works managers and engineers as well as full-time energy managers. Even consultants have found it very useful.

The workshop is limited to 12 delegates. It is informal and interactive, with questions and discussion encouraged throughout. Examples and exercises will be used to illustrate and clarify the material.

What you will learn

At the end of the session, you will know how to

  • Detect exceptions with a remarkably simple routine report
  • Instantly prioritise them by excess cost
  • Account properly for the weather, production activity levels, and other quantifiable influences
  • Reveal inefficiency and waste through analysis of past behaviour
  • Focus energy surveys where there will be most benefit
  • Verify and quantify the benefit of energy-saving initiatives and projects
  • Forecast and track energy budgets accurately
  • Benefit from enhanced benchmarking opportunities
If you have already heard of degree-days and cusum analysis and want to understand them properly, this is the place to learn.
Using automatic meter reading? Keep your head above water

Manual meter readings are fine too...

Yours to keep...

  • A handbook on the analysis and reporting of energy data
  • An Excel workbook containing the analysis methods taught on the course
You will be able to use the knowledge directly to improve your own "home-made" M&T schemes or to specify the features required from M&T software suppliers.
A proper course handbook


Vilnis Vesma MA CEng MEI has many years' continuous experience of designing, installing, supporting and operating energy monitoring and targeting schemes, and providing training for existing or potential users. This includes creating spreadsheet-based tools for energy management. He wrote a textbook on the subject (Managing Energy with a Desktop Computer, Energy Publications, 1987) and presented his first Energy Spreadsheet Masterclass in 1988.  
The organisations to which he has supplied M&T tools and know-how span a wide range of sectors including manufacturing industry as well as commercial and public sector organisations. He has written numerous articles on the subject. As well as authoring the government advice booklet Fuel Efficiency Booklet 13: Waste Avoidance Measures (1995) and the Carbon Trust's CTG008: Monitoring and targeting (2008), he has been a specialist contributor on M&T to Croner's Energy Management and Gee Publishing's Energy Saver, and publishes the definitive guide to M&T techniques on the web. The UK's former Action Energy programme retained Mr Vesma as a strategic advisor on energy monitoring and targeting.
