Energy experts launch new project management tool

With increasing legislative, ethical and stakeholder pressure to implement energy savings projects, many organisations are struggling to manage the number and complexity of projects they have to deliver.

Global access, transparency of data, automatic report generation and sorting of projects by multiple criteria are just some of the features of a new web-based software tool, Energy Activator®, to be launched by energy specialists JRP Solutions at Sustainability Live 2015.

"From our experience working to deliver continuous improvement projects, we understood exactly the challenges faced by organisations trying to manage multiple projects across multiple sites and often globally too. We have designed and developed Energy Activator® to address these challenges," says JRP Managing Director, Jes Rutter. Energy Activator® is a dynamic, user-friendly, web-based project management and reporting tool that enables the capture of energy reduction ideas and facilitates the effective management of a portfolio of energy reduction projects that will significantly improve the cost, environmental and operational performance of industrial businesses.

How does it work?
Improvement ideas and opportunities are uploaded to a web based database where they are stored and evaluated in terms of their cost, energy and environmental impact and then prioritised accordingly.

Selected improvement opportunities are subjected to a rigorous gated process requiring stakeholder sign-off at each stage before it can then pass through to the next stage of assessment and approval.
Individual improvement opportunities may be grouped together to form unique projects with all associated documents, images and schematics being stored on the same database providing easy access to all relevant information.

Energy Activator® may be accessed from anywhere in the world and the visibility of the stored information may be restricted, if required, in accordance with the structure and specific needs of the business.

The management reports generated by Energy Activator® provide valuable operational, commercial and environmental information that help to inform capital planning, budget forecasting and environmental reporting.
