Energy Management is an imperative for all companies, particularly those in energy intensive industries. However, rather than be seen as a new administrative and operational burden, this can be viewed as a doorway to opportunities. Energy savings, unlike increases in revenue, go straight to a company’s bottom line. By taking the initiative to implement a rigorous Energy Management System and identify opportunities for improvement, companies may also be able to take advantage of incentive schemes such as tax credits, interest free loans, or grants.
An Energy Audit can be seen as the first step towards Energy Management – allowing companies to clearly understand their current status for both energy management and energy efficiency. Audits can also lead to the identification of measures for instant savings or larger opportunities that merit further investigation.
