Behind every good energy manager, there are a few things to help them along the way. These three factors are vital for energy management success:
Upper management support.
It is hard to get anywhere in business without the support of your superiors. In the world of energy management, this problem is far too common. Energy managers are constantly stifled by upper management who refuse to devote the necessary time and resources needed to see improvement. If you need help gaining support from your bosses, here are some things you can try:
Present the problem (high energy usage) and the solution (an energy management system).
Use statistics, facts, and hard dollar figures to support your case.
Do your research beforehand so you can pose specific ideas.
A good team.
Managing the energy consumption of an entire facility is a tall task – usually too much for one person to handle. For this reason, it is imperative that you have a good team by your side. Qualities of a good energy management team include experience in the field, willingness to implement new and innovative ideas, and the drive for continuous improvement.
Energy monitoring equipment.
Have you ever heard the saying, a carpenter is only as good as his tools? Well, the same is true when it comes to energy management. If you are using second-hand products to monitor energy consumption, you will get second-hand results.
If you want the best results, you need the best equipment. That’s where Electro Industries comes in.
