Whether you are completely new to the world of energy management, or you are just looking to get a better grasp on it, these three fundamental rules will help pave the road to success for any of your future campaigns.
Rule #1: Energy management is a top-down approach.
If your business is serious about investing in energy management solutions, it needs to start at the top. Upper level management – preferably the CEO – needs to approve of allocating significant amounts of money, time, and employees for this task.
Rule #2: The best results require a continuous effort.
Energy management is not a “set it and forget it” process. At least it shouldn’t be. If you want the best results possible, you need to continually strive for improvements. At the bare minimum, you should be actively monitoring your energy consumption to make sure things aren’t getting worse. Equipment loses efficiency over time, and your employees tend to forget the good habits you worked so hard to teach them.
Rule #3: You need the right equipment.
Even with support from upper management and a fully dedicated team, you won’t get the results you want if you aren’t equipped properly. There is an old adage that says, “a man is only as good as his tools,” and this phrase can certainly be applied to energy management. If you want the best results, you will need the best equipment. Period.
