Energy monitoring is a technical and management function which provides a capability to monitor, record, analyze, examine, and control energy flow through systems. Energy used in industrial process is expected to depend on the quantity of products, while energy in residential building is expected to depend on weather conditions, there are several approaches and methods can be taken for each particular case of study. Monitoring is deployed to compare internal variations in energy consumption with external trends, and monitor the performance over a period of time. Regular trending such as weekly or monthly analysis of energy consumption patterns provides improved information; therefore the accuracy of data becomes important factor at this level of monitoring. Targeting is a realistic dynamic procedure in which energy performance goals are set for various conditions, energy consumption levels should be periodically monitored and justified in order to achieve acceptable energy usage. To achieve these goals, a necessary information and data have to be collected and be correctly interpreted. The techniques to do this come under "monitoring and target setting". This study examines a precise description of monitoring and targeting concept and the technique of collecting and analyzing energy data, also the subject of waste avoidance and the methods of diagnosing and eliminating wasteful energy will be covered.
