Most energy efficiency programs can pay for themselves in just one year. It’s not uncommon for large multi-national companies to sustain a five percent energy reduction year-over-year to realize 30 percent or more in reduction over time. That’s just the beginning of the potential energy efficiency savings many companies are missing out on simply because they don’t have a shared corporate vision, a clear financial plan or a way to track and verify results.
Launching a successful efficiency program starts with building an effective business case that not only sells the plan internally, but also helps to ensure momentum throughout implementation. Drawing from real-life experience, our clients and energy experts have identified these key steps to creating an effective business case for efficiency.
