When developing an Energy Management Strategy, it is worth adopting the simple methods of ISO50001 standards, and utilising the management process of Plan, Do, Check, Act.
Step 1 is where we review the bills the metering in the building, the building itself and the business. This enables us to get a baseline and figure out our current energy usage and the systems in place.
Step 2 is where we realign the equipment installed and look to replace it with more efficient technology. We raise education and awareness and develop ‘best practice’ behavior. We also realign the energy tariffs and contracts in line with the business.
Step 3 is where we reduce the organisation energy consumption and bills with various techniques. This will focus on no cost, low cost and capital expenditure. All have benefits, and bring short, medium, and long-term wins.
Step 4 is reporting the year on year the consumption and the costs with associated. We focus on cost, saving and payback opportunities and show what improvements are made to continually reduce your energy usage.
This is an ongoing process, and on completion of step 4 we then go back to review and start the process again.
