Real Time Energy Management

Real Time Energy Management (RTEM) consists of hardware (sensors) and cloud-based software that provides automated energy monitoring in buildings. The automated functions include fault detection and prevention, system use analysis and diagnostic tools. Every RTEM project includes three years of service and analysis by Taitem to support building staff by delivering actionable insights to improve building operations.


Discover energy saving opportunities and useful energy performance metrics and see the impacts of changes immediately.


Improve building performance, reduce unplanned maintenance costs and optimize building controls while supporting demand response and reducing energy bills.


Forecast and achieve measurable energy savings, with forecasts based on building use and parameters.
