Through the implementation of an Energy Management Information System (EMIS) the goal is to engage individuals on all levels of an organization. Guiding our Clients through the various phases of the EMIS, we are able to provide them with the in depth visibility on energy usage and performance they require to make informed decisions and take effective actions to manage energy use and costs.
With Renteknik’s expertise and knowledge we can implement an Operational Efficiency & Energy Management Plan that is unique to each Client that focuses on their financial planning, project and resource needs.
Throughout the EMIS process there is a deep focus on improvements, integration of efficiency implementations, ongoing communication, optimized performance analysis and reporting on systems on a continuous basis.
An energy management information system (EMIS) is a performance management system that enables individuals and organizations to plan, make decisions and take effective actions to manage energy use and costs.
An EMIS makes energy performance visible to different levels of the organization by converting energy and utility driver data at energy account centres into energy performance information. It does this by using performance equations that are compared with the organization’s energy targets.
Implement an EMIS in your organization
There are three phases to developing an EMIS.
Phase 1: EMIS Audit
An EMIS audit is an in-depth, eight-step process that will help your organization find out how much energy it is using, identify gaps and make recommendations. Critically, it will help you determine whether there is a financial case for implementing EMIS.
Phase 2: Implementation Plan
This phase shows you accurate costs for implementing EMIS and details the scope of the project and the resources your organization needs to manage it. It also gives you a schedule to implement and manage an EMIS
Phase 3: Implementation
The implementation phase allows your organization to make continuous energy efficiency improvements. Once all aspects of your plan are implemented, your EMIS will:
- Gather information on energy consumption
- Gather information on the useful outputs that result from the consumption of energy
- Gather information on any other factors that may affect energy consumption
- Contain analysis routines that allow you to compare between energy consumption and utility drivers
- Build and display energy performance reports
For more information, read the guidebook for managers, engineers and operational staff called Energy Management Information Systems: Achieving Improved Energy Efficiency (PDF, 1.14 MB).
Our mandate is to empower our Clients in every area of the
organization, whether with Owners, Managers, Engineers, Finance or Operational Staff to see what is happening within their businesses. With EMIS in place Improved Energy Efficiency can be achieved, ultimately saving your business money and contributing to overall sustainability.

To Note: Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) provides cost-shared financial assistance to Canadian industrial companies of up to 50% of eligible costs to a maximum of $40,000. NRCan may adjust its level of funding if combined with other sources of funding, so that the combined level from all public sources (including provincial-territorial-municipal governments and Crown-owned utilities) does not exceed 75% of total eligible project costs.
