Challenges

Energy savings hide in the places you don’t look.

Many of your sites are in regulated markets where there are no third-party suppliers and no competition. Instead, you have one option to meet your energy needs – the local utility – where your rate isn’t necessarily negotiable. You’re eager to control operating costs, but you’re not exactly sure where to look or even what you’re looking for.

Extracting every ounce of value from all of your sourcing options is a difficult task. Often, the commodity buying transaction is the end of the process, but real energy savings begin early on at the planning stage. From there, your energy management strategy sets the stage for cost savings and cost certainty that can extend well beyond your sourcing activity. From regulated charges to utility rebates to energy invoice reconciliation and more, savings opportunities are simply waiting to be uncovered.
