Energy: metrics & strategies

In the corporate and institutional world there is a consensus: strategies must be monitored with metrics in order to achieve and maintain robust results.

Step 1 - Define the metrics

For example:

* $/MWh

To reflect the cost of contracted energy,

* MWh/physical unit

To show the specific consumption such as tons produced, occupied ft², etc..

* $/physical unit to mirror the energy cost per physical unit

Step 2 - Build a plan to improve metrics

* List the topics to be explored

Energy efficiency, portfolio of energy sources (gas, solar, electric, biomass, etc.), consumption management, demand response programs, migration to the free market

* Create alternatives 

Covering technical, financial, legal and management issues

* Choose the ones to be implanted

Set a timeline indicating activities, who will be in charge and deadlines

Step 3 - Monitor results 

Using previously defined metrics, evaluate results and make the always necessary adjustments.
