Executive Summary

The global energy value chain – from fuel inputs to end-user consumption – is undergoing a multi-decade transformation. A shift from centralized to decentralized generation, supply security issues, major policy changes and higher prices impacts market participants: plant managers, facilities directors, building information modellers, heads of energy services firms and most recently, CFOs. These decision-makers must consider future energy management strategies. This report provides executives with an actionable framework for strategic energy management. Interviews with 210 corporate energy decision-makers in 21 industries demonstrate how quickly firms expect to invest in decentralized energy and change energy management processes. The findings from in-depth discussions with a panel of 30 energy management veterans explain why optimal financial performance requires an energy management framework based on energy domains and energy systems. Energy service providers are responding developing new value propositions for energy strategy, planning, financing and systems integration.
