Energy efficiency done right can pay for itself: A Biz Case Webinar explains how to convince your CEO.
Schneider Electric has partnered with a few of its global industrial clients to exchange best practices on how to successfully develop a business case for energy efficiency. The resulting eBook & Webinar explain 4 essential steps.
Most energy efficiency programs can pay for themselves. It’s not uncommon for large multi-national companies to sustain a five percent energy reduction year-over-year to realize 30 percent or more in reduction over time - an enormous energy efficiency savings potential many companies are missing out on simply because they don’t have a shared corporate vision, a clear financial plan or a way to track and verify results.
Now, Schneider Electric, the global specialist in energy management and automation, has partnered with a few of its global industrial clients to exchange best practices on how to successfully develop a business case for energy and sustainability. The resulting eBook contains the main findings from these collaborations with links to real-life success stories. Further exchange will be possible on the Business Case Webinar, 10 October 2017.
Essentially, there are 4 key steps savvy energy managers are taking to build an internal business case to fund programs designed to optimize energy and operational efficiency, reduce risk and maximize profitability. These steps include:
- Securing buy-in from executives
- Mapping baselines of your entire portfolio
- Developing an opportunity profile and financial plan
- Ensuring ongoing performance and savings
The four key steps are a proven way to successfully build a case for energy efficiency, but they’re just the beginning. To be truly successful, companies need to develop a continuous improvement culture where efficiency becomes as second nature as labor, materials and production planning. It must be woven into the fabric of the operation, and integrated as one strategy and one set of goals for the company.
