The importance of clear Energy Reporting

Monday 15th May 2017

"Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee. The hands can't hit what the eyes can't see." Muhammad Ali wasn't an energy manager, but he got the point nonetheless. Without clear visibility of your energy performance, energy saving measures are unlikely to get traction. Their success or failure goes unnoticed; delivery can seem futile; the whole enterprise can be open to scepticism - it's tough to get buy-in to a project that can't offer evidence of its justification. This can then become a self-fulfilling prophecy; if no-one sees the point, then no-one hits their target.

Conversely, a clear, visual representation of one’s performance against target can focus minds. A small lighting project on one floor of a building, once it’s justified by visibly falling cost, becomes the blueprint for rollout across the rest of an estate. Unusual spikes in demand out of hours drive conversations with BMS maintenance crews. That evident 7% year on year reduction keeps all stakeholders engaged.

E2's Monthly Energy Performance Reports provide just that visual representation. Generated each month by our Compliance team and circulated to key figures at the client side, they have long driven service tickets, proactive maintenance and employee engagement. If you suspect you could be doing more to reduce energy spend, you're almost certainly correct - and E2 Services can give you the clearest picture as to how.
