10 Tips for Better Energy Management

Energy management and reducing energy is a goal for any business, especially when utility rates continue to climb. So here are ten tips for better energy management to help your business cut its energy use.

  • Engage objective experts: working with objective experts often yields the best results because they have no immediate stake in the results.
  • Set goals: a must in any business plan
  • Benchmark: use external benchmarking resources from EPA Energy Star to identify opportunities and best practices that are shared globally.
  • Invest in energy efficiency: when considering an efficiency project such as lighting retrofits, it’s important to prioritize them based on return on investment and successful implementation.
  • Monitor: monitoring energy and lighting use is an efficient way to reduce energy use
  • Measure performance
  • Involve and reward employees
  • Communicate
  • Share best practices throughout your organization: reducing consumption is a global team effort and requires collaboration from all levels. If one part of your business is efficient, it’s easy to expand to the rest of your organization.
  • Be transparent: let your customers know about your efficiency projects because many consumers consider a company’s practices before making a buying decision.
