To be fully effective it needs to be an integral part of an organisation's wider management processes - and any corporate social responsibility CSR policy. Rising energy prices, climate change legislation and the need to be environmentally responsible all require effective energy management.
Without the support of senior managers, energy management will falter and be marginalised. Senior managers need to be convinced of the business case for investing funds and staff time in managing energy. An energy policy is a written statement of senior management's commitment to managing energy and its environmental impacts. Often it forms part of a wider corporate social responsibility CSR policy. For large organisations an energy policy should be no more than two pages long; a few paragraphs may be sufficient for smaller organisations.
An energy strategy is a working document setting out how energy will be managed in an organisation. It should contain an action plan of tasks, which will initially involve understanding the organisation's current position and establishing the management framework. As the processes are established, the tasks should address the identification and implementation of specific energy saving projects. New to energy management? Read our free introductory guide An introduction to energy management CTV Our team of experts analyses the data to identify specific issues and opportunities to reduce consumption, and provides advice and guidance on implementing them.
Effective energy management is a key part of managing your business and can help you to cut energy waste and reduce cost. By metering and monitoring energy use you will be able to quantify the energy savings that you achieve over time and support energy efficiency investment projects with reliable data. This guide will be useful for all businesses looking to control their energy costs and is particularly aimed at SMEs.

Summary of the opportunity Reducing demand for energy through energy efficiency is the most cost effective way of reducing greenhouse gas emissions and improving the security of the energy supply. Our investment policy 7 We invest in projects that reduce energy consumed and related greenhouse gas emissions, cut costs and improve productivity. Energy Efficiency Infrastructure Building retrofit: generally involving systems solutions both in the public and private sectors Industrial energy efficiency: incl.
Our Approach 1. We aim to structure the optimal financial solution for the project, ensuring risks are identified and mitigated. We work with end users and energy services companies to identify, structure and invest in non-domestic energy efficiency projects. We can finance the total project cost and structure our returns based on the outcome of the project. The Host has the right to terminate the ESA at any time after implementation, for the present value of the future cash flow streams. SDCL has worked with its professional advisers to design its ESA to maximise the likelihood that such projects may qualify for off balance sheet treatment for the Host.
Value of savings based on energy costs established at the time the Baseline is set and subject to inflation. Performance Risk The risk that the energy efficiency solution delivered does not result in the expected savings.sosinternship.com/wp-content/tasto-power-iphone-8-plus.php

This is a guarantee that the installed energy efficiency solution provided by the ESCO will produce a set level of savings or a negotiated percentage of that level. SDCL seeks diversification of sub-contractors and the right to step in and replace non-performing sub-contractors. Construction Risk The risk that there is a construction delay impacting payback period. SDCL contracts with specialist service providers with a track record of delivering projects on time and on budget.
SDCL seeks to actively manage all contracts associated with the projects. Technology Risk The risk that the technology used in the energy efficiency project fails. SDCL does not anticipate taking new technology risk. We only look to implement commercially proven technologies. SDCL typically structures contracts based on stipulated savings where the energy cost is fixed as a floor price in the contract, set against an agreed baseline for energy consumption.
Operating and Maintenance Risk The risk that the energy efficiency equipment is not maintained resulting in equipment failure and financial loss. A pre-requisite of an ESCO providing a performance guarantee will typically be an operation and maintenance contract at least matching the life of the performance guarantee As such — the operation and maintenance schedule is contractually set and the consequences of operational failure is covered by the performance guarantee.
