As 2017 draws to a close, it’s the perfect moment to take stock of our learnings as energy professionals in order to put things in perspective. We find ourselves asking questions like:
- Which energy efficiency projects went well?
- Which ones could have gone better and why?
- How did I perform compared to my peers?
- How does my organisation stack up against the competition?
We know those last two can be a little tricky to discern without a little help 😉 That’s why for the third year running, DEXMA is proud to launch The State of Energy Management survey. Read on to discover what we learned last year and why you should participate this year…
The State of Energy Management: Key Learnings from 2017
We learned some pretty interesting stats about the energy management world after surveying over 300 energy professionals last year, including these juicy tidbits:
- 65% of energy professionals felt that their biggest professional challenge in 2017 would be finding new projects and clients.
- 30% of energy experts said that the need to monitor key performance indicators (energy KPIs) is the biggest driver for their clients to choose an energy management platform.
- Only 16% of energy pros surveyed use Twitter as a source for energy news, while 44% are using LinkedIn to stay updated.
- 42% energy professionals feel that the killer combination of unverified energy savings plus a lack of dedicated funds to put toward energy management is the chief reason to lose a project.
5 Reasons to Participate in the State of Energy Management 2018
1. Stay ahead of the competition – Energy management is a competitive market, and it’s always important to know where your competitors stand. What tech tools are they using? What works for them and what doesn’t? Contribute to the survey here to get the lay of the land and keep up with those competitors.
2. Avoid energy tech FOMO – As energy management technology evolves at an increasingly faster rate, it’s especially important to know what tools are available to implement now and which ones you are better off waiting for.
3. Strength in numbers – Energy management can be a lonely job, especially if you are the only one in your organisation responsible for bringing those kilowatt hours down. Contribute to the survey and discover your of strength in numbers by situating yourself amongst your peers (hey, you are not alone in this after all!)
4. For a limited time only – The State of Energy Management survey will be open during the month of January only, so check it off your to-do list early and get your entry in before January 31st, 2018.
