Managing energy is, in many ways, a balancing act. On a tightrope. Under a blazing-hot spotlight. Overtop a shark-infested pool. Okay, maybe not quite THAT bad - but still. Nobody wants to take on the task of measuring, monitoring and controlling something so crucial for every process. For companies without a dedicated energy manager, reducing energy consumption can feel almost counterproductive - as if you are holding back the rest of your team or business from doing its job. This couldn't be more backwards! Like it or not, energy is the second biggest annual cost after manpower for most companies, no matter which sector you work in. So managing it intelligently can deliver some serious savings - but don't take our word for it! Actions speak louder than words, so here are some real energy management examples that show how your company can cut energy costs while continuing to grow and scale.
