Evaluating and Measuring

Figure 15 Energy use reduction at the Geneva Data Centre

Progress against our EEB targets is tracked via the SGS Energy Rating Tool for Offices and Laboratories; in 2014 we expanded the coverage of the data collection from 23 to 39 buildings.

Centralized energy monitoring is highly valuable in alerting us to spikes in energy use that require further investigation, and in measuring the performance benefit as a result of efficiency projects. The graphs above are sourced from the SGS offices in Antwerp before and after the implementation of the SGS “Spot the Orange Dot” campaign, and demonstrate energy consumption savings of 12%.
