automatic Monitoring & Targeting group (aM&Tg)
Elected Group ChairTim Holman, Head of Operations, TEAM
The ESTA aM&T Group provides a dedicated trade body to support ESTA members who provide a range of products and services targeted at measuring, acquiring, managing, processing and analysing energy data in the pursuance of energy efficiency.
The aM&T Group is all about achieving that strong foundation of energy data necessary to make informed decisions regarding energy and cost reduction. Its’ values include not only the professionalism which its’ members demonstrate to clients but also a willingness to work with other members so as to form a strong link in what is often a chain or products and services required to effectively take a client from initial measurement to full understanding.
To attract new members, retain existing members and grow in size and influence. Establish the Group as both the leading authority on aM&T issues as well as the preferred source of aM&T equipment, software and service providers.
To encourage sharing and exchange of knowledge both within the aM&T group and also with other ESTA specialist groups.
To influence government and energy industry policy and regulation as well as the development of technical standards in order to support and, where possible, incentivise the adoption of aM&T as a path toward energy reduction and demand-side management.
To identify barriers to the adoption of aM&T and work together to remove or mitigate same.
Interact with other ESTA specialist groups to promote expertise within aM&T and learn about expertise and opportunities from other groups.
