Before you reach out to us for help with your energy problem. Here are some tips that can help you best prepare your team for a change in energy management.
Be Committed to Energy Management
Simply saying you are ready to make a change won’t bring you the financial returns you seek from energy management. In order for an energy management program to succeed, you need to be open to continuous improvement and energy management as a whole.
In order to prove your commitment, you must:
- Establish a dedicated team,
- Understand where your business is failing in energy management,
- And create an energy policy that becomes the foundation of your energy management efforts.
These efforts may be difficult to establish on your own. With the help of Priority Power Management, you will be able to understand your objectives and form an Energy Team that effectively meets ENERGY STAR guidelines.
Always Assess Your Performance
Aside from having a committed team in place, you must understand where your energy use is coming from. In order to properly assess your performance, you will need to focus on establishing baselines, benchmarking, and evaluating your performance through scheduled audits.
Analyzing your performance history will help get you ahead when you begin to properly establish your energy management program. Like every aspect of a business, there is always room to improve performance, and data collection is a great way to start doing this with your energy efforts.
Goal Setting is Key
Together with performance analysis, when creating an energy supply management program, you must set some attainable goals. Creating goals with a company that specializes in energy savings programs helps to drive overall management and improvement.
Some ways to approach your energy saving goals, your program provider will be able to help you:
- Create time frames for your goals,
- Understand where your business wants to be in a set number of years,
- Help the Energy Team create goals to identify progress and any potential setbacks,
- And create schedules for meetings and management activities.
