Energy: prevalent trends

From the perspective of corporate and institutional energy users, there are two main approaches to achieve and maintain excellent results.

* Obtain and internalize know-how

To enable the creation, deployment and management of solutions "in-house". The prerequisite is to delve into topics that are not necessarily known.

* Contract solutions as if they were commodities

Go to the market and request proposals aiming at results. Energy supply, consumption reduction, cost arbitrage between sources, local generation contracts, etc.

Both approaches can bring very interesting and convenient results. have to know what you want. And this is not something trivial, in my experience! The first step is to find out!
