What is an Energy Manager and might your business need one? Both fair questions – and definitely worth answering, as sweeping environmental, social and business trends force energy to climb the corporate agenda. Harvard Business Review describes the ‘megatrends’ that are changing the context in which businesses operate, as; climate change and global carbon regulation, increasing pressures on natural resources, rising expectations about corporate environmental performance, innovations in energy technologies and business models, and plummeting renewable energy prices.
Many forward-thinking companies have bought into the concept of an Energy Manager, who is expected to use any and all tools at his or her disposal – from auditing existing measures to incorporating the latest technologies – to identify inefficiencies, shape energy best practices within the organisation and optimise the relationship between energy use and the bottom line.
Panpwr.com describes the objective of an Energy Manager as follows:
