Are time and resource shortages an obstacle to energy efficiency? 

February 25 2024

As a result, the insights about the business's energy use and environmental impact are stuck with one or a few people in the entire organization. Usually the ones who pay the bills. As a logical consequence, the risk increases that unused energy efficiency potential will never be realized.  

Connect the purpose with technology and reach the goal faster 

Companies must be able to focus on their core business and at the same time enable everyone in the organization to act as natural "efficiency enhancers" within the framework of their normal work flow. It is absolutely not intended that one or a couple of people in an organization should hold together the energy efficiency work and then delegate and follow up each action manually. It is neither cost-effective, scalable nor sustainable. 


Rather, it is about creating the conditions to act on momentarily at the organization's fingertips and being clear about what applies through governing documents such as policies, processes and routines. Being energy smart must be part of everyday life by making energy use visible where it can be affected, linking it to setpoints and limit values, working proactively with alarms and getting the work into the normal workflow outside the business. Then you have a good start.

All target and limit values ​​must be drawn up by someone, who does it?  

If you measure, you know what is a good target or limit value to begin with. That analysis is done based on the power curve or energy profile linked to the production and it is advantageous to have a partner who helps with this while the organization focuses on the core business. 


The advice is to get a competent partner with the entire toolbox for data collection, energy analysis, advice and really good service. All so that an energy efficiency project will be as successful as possible with a reasonable effort and the least possible risk of missing the target.
