The world's consumes tremendous amount of energy everyday to keep functioning. The sources of energy are mainly based on solar energy, fossil fuel, chemicals and in some cases nuclear energy source. The perpetual energy sources need not require monitoring or management. But the energy sources that are limited such as the fuel sources, etc require proper monitoring and management. The standard management axiom that is most applicable to energy monitoring states, 'You cannot manage, what you cannot measure'. Thus, the need to monitor and measure energy consumption arises. WSCADA systems exploit technology to achieve just that.
