Energy: strategic checklist

Those who are responsible for ensuring that the cost of energy and the reliability of its supply are within desired competitive standards have a very interesting to do  list.

* Free energy market

Evaluate "collar" prices to capture additional savings but with "risk mitigation.

* Energy efficiency

Explore structured formats to achieve additional results, such as "shared-savings", "performance contracting" among others.

* Distributed generation

Identify projects that offer attractive energy prices  potentially  in an "energy as a service" format.

* Energy management

Check if a system has been installed that proactively monitors the main physical  parameters (kW demand, kWh energy, power factor, time of use, etc.) and associated costs that influence the bills of each contracted energy source.

* Metrics

Make sure that there is a solid  a reference for decision making both in terms of unit costs of each source ($/kWh) and in energy conversion processes (kWh/activity).

None of this is difficult or complicated. On the contrary: simple and easy and therefore with great potential to generate special results.
