RDE provides independent analysis to help end-users, building owners and data center operators understand how they use energy and what they can do to use less.
Throughout our work we strive to distill clear pragmatic advice from technical detail. We have found this to be highly effective in helping decision makers to quickly see both the strength of a business case, and whether a specific energy saving measure makes sense for their current situation.
