Energy use monitoring is key to buying, selling and implementing energy efficiency projects profitably
Energy accounting is key to success of energy projects
Selling, buying and implementing energy projects costs too much effort at both sides of the client-vendor divide, despite the best effort of professionals involved in the process. It does not have to.
Why so many projects are either not sold, or not approved, or not recognised after implementation? Why do projects often deliver cost and hassle instead of validated savings and professional satisfaction?
This happens when energy efficiency projects are introduced to companies that do not have adequate energy use monitoring and reporting procedures. Why should vendors care about client’s internal procedures? Because vendors either support the smooth flow of energy project development or find themselves out or it.
When client knows their energy consumption pace normalized to level of business activity, results of an energy efficiency project, be it hardware upgrade, technological or operational change, are clearly visible.
