Case StudiesGHG Emissions Assessment & Calculation of Carbon Footprint (0004) Project Summary CRC (0062a) Energy Efficiency BAT Assessment (0069) Energy Efficiency Review (0085)
Energy management is the means for monitoring, controlling and reducing an organisation’s energy consumption. This requirement is becoming increasingly important to both the industrial and commercial sectors owing to the risk to business profitability associated with energy price rises or supply shortages.
In addition, organisations are increasingly aware of the need to reduce carbon emissions to minimise environmental damage and to promote a sustainable corporate image.
What is the benefit?
Monitoring energy consumption and identifying trends allows organisations to identify opportunities for reducing energy consumption, by focusing on areas of high or unnecessary use.
With an effective energy management plan, an organisation can reduce business risk by reducing its demand for energy and controlling it so as to make it more predictable. The plan needs to be based upon promoting energy efficiency within the business through education of the workforce; effective management and maintenance of the building, plant and equipment; and consideration of renewable energy technology such as solar, wind, or geothermal power schemes.
The management plan can direct effort initially to low-cost or low investment improvements, with rapid payback. The savings made can be reinvested in further improvement.
