The load curve shows the power consumption of a business over a certain period of time. As a rule, this is measured in quarter-hourly values. This makes it possible to see when the most electricity was consumed and when the least.

You can also see when a system requires unnecessary energy at standstill. Devices and machines that are no longer needed may still be running after closing time.

A professional analysis of the load curve is therefore important if energy consumption and energy costs are to be reduced during operation.

A load envelope curve is particularly effective for:
