Many view the energy management process as little more than an energy audit.
We believe that this whilst the audit is an important element of the process
that there are a number of other elements in a practical energy management
solution. Our process outline shown to the right attempts to provide an
overview of the elements involved.
It’s not useful to do engineering for engineering’s sake. There needs to be
an economic reality included in the decision process.
One of the areas that we find little consideration is given to is that of
measurement and verification. The M&V process provides evidence of the
outcomes from an energy project. A useful M&V model can be used to
demonstrate outcomes to third parties such as auditors, and to quantify
the benefits of the program.
