Energy: a generalist or a specialist approach?

In most companies and institutions for which I consulted, I realized right from the start that the approach was specialist.

That is, there were some opportunities on the "shelf" fairly well detailed. But as a rule, they did not have a plan pointing to the strategy they wanted to pursue.

Of course, in some cases, the potential results turned out to be quite interesting. But the prevalence has always been a lack of "flight plan" and relatively high energy costs ($/MWh and MWh/activity).

Important opportunities are often overlooked and therefore not captured.

Moral of the story: it is worth trying to create a strategic plan to achieve and maintain the best results given the boundary conditions of each case!
