Information from EnerKey is key to monitoring Keva’s energy efficiency
The long-term use of EnerKey SaaS enables the comprehensive utilisation of the energy consumption data of Keva’s properties. In EnerKey SaaS’s consumption reporting, the energy consumption of properties is monitored regularly. The consumption is always simultaneously compared with the previous level of energy consumption.
When consumption anomalies are detected, their origin is immediately clarified. Therefore, possible inefficiencies can be addressed without delay. Without a reliable reporting system, it would not be possible to address anomalies, compare and analyse energy consumption in buildings and take the necessary corrective action in a timely manner.
The information obtained from EnerKey SaaS plays a key role in monitoring Keva’s energy efficiency. The achievement of targets is monitored through EnerKey consumption reporting and key indicators. EnerKey SaaS brings transparency through the information it produces and enabling learning by comparing the fulfilments of different investments. In this way, best practices can be properly utilised in all real estate properties. This further improves energy efficiency.

We have created a model of continuous improvement where, after mapping the current state, we actively follow the achievement of future goals. EnerKey’s SEMS platform enables continuous improvement in energy efficiency and sustainability by clearly highlighting energy consumption data, energy costs and CO2 emissions side by side.
The new tools will also streamline energy invoice management and tenant billing processes,” states Aki Paavola, Technical Manager at Fennia Properties Ltd.
