EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

This report provides a detailed comparison of 14 enterprise energy management software applications to help corporate buyers save time, reduce costs and mitigate risks when selecting products and suppliers. Based on the proprietary Verdantix Green Quadrant methodology, the analysis combines benchmark data from 14 live product demonstrations, responses to a 134 point questionnaire and interviews with an independent panel of 15 customers across 13 industries who have bought, or are planning to buy, energy management software. The study finds that customers’ requirements are continuing to increase in complexity and five 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 usually occur when suppliers design software for a specific energy domain, such as data centres, grocery retail or commercial offices, with the facilities owned by the customer.
