The combined annual energy costs of the commercial, governmental and industrial sectors across the U.S. total more than $390 billion. And, for many organizations, the cost of energy can be among their largest expenditures. Taking control of seemingly ever-increasing energy costs is not an easy task. The Get Smarter about Your Energy Procurement Data Book from Energy Manager Today will help you effectively control energy costs by understanding the multitude of factors that influence energy prices and developing procurement strategies that account for those factors and a company’s unique business goals.
The drivers of energy costs are varied and complex, points out ConEdison Solutions, sponsor of the data book. The fluctuating price of generation sources, weather events causing increased demand and the trend towards increasing mandates for renewables targets are just a few. At the same time, the square footage of your building and how you use energy are key determinants influencing energy costs. The best procurement strategies are those that are comprehensive, including an energy purchase plan that is coupled with energy efficiency and other demand management strategies. Because a comprehensive approach is important, you can maximize the effectiveness of your energy plan by working with a single provider that is capable of delivering a full range of services.In this data book from Energy Manager Today and ConEdison Solutions, you’ll find detailed information on:
