All too often, energy management occurs in the rear-view mirror. Only after bills arrive do most businesses consider how energy use and spending might be better managed. Even then, bills contain very little information about how energy was used – what equipment or processes drove consumption? What time of day saw the most use? Was consumption as expected, or are facilities running inefficiently?
With energy demand trending to new heights, a greater need for operational efficiency, increasingly deregulated supply markets, and impending regulation of greenhouse gasses, suddenly energy management has been thrust to the forefront of long-term planning. Leading businesses are now looking at energy management as just as essential to their operations as accounting, supply management, or human resources.
By adopting energy management strategies, businesses can regain control over their energy spending, turn costs into opportunities, reduce risk, and inform smarter energy decisions. Smarter energy management has already helped thousands of commercial, institutional, and industrial customers put millions of dollars back in their pockets through four key energy management strategies: reducing real-time demand for electricity, increasing energy efficiency, improving energy supply transparency, and mitigating greenhouse gas emissions.
