Webinar – The New Consumers of Utility Data
Gone are the days when accounting teams were the only ones hunting down utility bills in order to pay them.
Now, more than ever before, a growing list of departments within a single organization are asking for utility data. This “big energy data” can be used for sustainability and CSR reporting, energy consumption benchmarking and forecasting, customer and investor transparency, among many other reasons.
On Wednesday, Sept. 10, 2014 Urjanet will host a webinar discussing how the industry has seen the need for energy data span across multiple departments within the enterprise, and how these end users are applying the data to achieve their departmental and organizational goals.
Webinar panelists will include
