EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

This report provides a detailed benchmark of fifteen enterprise energy management software applications to help corporate buyers save time, reduce cost and mitigate risks in product and supplier selection. Based on the proprietary Verdantix Green Quadrant methodology, the analysis combines benchmark data from 15 live product demonstrations, responses to a 115 point questionnaire and interviews with an independent panel of 15 customers who have bought or are planning to buy energy management software. The study finds that four suppliers currently lead the enterprise energy management software market. When selecting an application, buyers should focus on the value delivered by the software and supporting energy services. Successful implementations match software that is designed for a specific energy domain, such as data centres, grocery retail or commercial offices, with the facilities owned by the customer. Many pre-existing energy management software applications do not have the product architecture to scale up to a global deployment — just 15 applications were selected for this study from a total of 60.
