Now available on demand: edie’s webinar on optimising your energy data

Energy data is the backbone of the net-zero transition. Done well, data management can unlock significant carbon and cost savings and help to underpin investment in key projects. But gathering and optimising data is no easy task – especially for organisations with multiple sites and varying consumption patterns.

To help you navigate energy data, we hosted a 45-minute online masterclasss session in association with Centrica Business Solutions and key partner Direct Business Solutions. This session initially aired on Thursday 15 June and is now available on demand.


This session offered up fresh insights, inspiration and advice when it comes to monitoring, measuring and optimising your organisation’s energy data in ways that could radically reduce carbon emissions.

It included real-life case studies and actionable takeaways, with a focus on real-time data management solutions to holistically manage consumption, reduce spend and improve operational efficiencies. Please see the full agenda and speaker information below.
