Which energy manager does CFO know by first name?

Hands-on? Watchful? Strategic?

A Hands-On energy manager walks the floor daily to personally check consumption of every machine. He is in one place at a time.

A Watchful energy manager installs meters to check real-time energy performance. He monitors several machines at the same time.

A Strategic energy manager collects data from meters into an Energy Management Information System (EMIS) to monitor energy performance of every machine all the time. EMIS analyses consumption of all machines over time to generate reports and alarms of over consumption or malfunction. It’s like he has been in different places and at all times simultaneously, all while sitting at his desk for 15 minutes a day.

Which energy manager prevents more troubles, sees more opportunities and delivers more accurate cost reports to CFO?

No wonder CFO knows their first name. No wonder CFO approves funding for more projects coming from such a manager.
