Energy: What's Up Now?

Part 4: Commitment

Managing energy is a continuing process. This commitment requires getting everyone in the entire organization involved in identifying opportunities, empowering them to make changes, and, if necessary, finding and devoting funds to energy reduction projects.

Everyone in the organization is responsible for using energy. From the office workers who leave their lights and equipment on, to security people who see the building operating 24/7, to the HVAC technician who changes filters, all have good ideas and can impact savings. One of the best ways of getting everyone involved is to form an Energy Task Force with key players from each department and then meet periodically to review utility bills and costs, generate new ideas, review results, and plan the next steps.
