Cost Savings Are Great, But Our Recent Global Survey Uncovers Other Significant Energy Management Investment Drivers
The cost saving benefits of energy management investments always feel like the bottom line on which programmes are judged. While reducing energy costs is a great benefit of energy management – every bit of cost reduction counts – our recent global survey findings highlights an often overlooked additional benefit of investing in energy management initiatives.
In 2016, our interviews of 250 global energy leaders found that 90% of them view corporate operational improvements as either a very important or important factor to consider in the business case when seeking to increase spend on energy management.
What types of operational improvements do firms aim to achieve? Typically, firms have turned to energy management as a tool to ensure facility comfort levels and to mitigate disruptions to critical operations – as evidenced by the 68% of respondents who have integrated energy and facility management strategies for these purposes. Some corporate energy consumers have realized the beneficial impact energy management can have on their maintenance operations, and asset management programmes. Verdantix expects this trend to continue as consumers and energy services firms continue to unlock the benefits of facility optimization management.
