Blog Topic A: E-Financial Management,
General

 

Development and
implementation of energy-efficient processes, technologies, and services:

  • saves organizations money,
  • drives innovation and productivity, and
  • supports a cleaner environment

Buildings – including offices, homes, and stores – use 40%
of our energy and 70% of our electricity.

Most buildings waste about 24% of their energy because when
it was a monopoly we couldn’t do much about it – just pay the bill.

Now, buildings are reservoirs of cash.

Seeing
is believing!

Seeing
the dollars of energy streaming through your buildings will get you believing
costs can come down.

  • If
    you had the big picture of energy use –in terms of dollars as well as kWhs
    and BTUs – you could see the times of peak usage.
  • What is Energy Cloud
    Computing & Tracking
  • If
    you had the detailed picture of where that expenditure went – what
    department, what air conditioners, what public lighting – you could narrow
    down on the root causes.

The
key point is to get a specific look – a granular look – at how many dollars
stream through each major panel and circuit.

  • With
    that information – compare, for example, actual air conditioner usage with
    the spec sheet for those units, and measure the difference to see how much
    inefficiency crept into that circuit. Do it for main circuits.
  • Change
    energy procurement strategies – compare new rates to old rates and
    calculate the differences.

Implement
solutions – You have a choice. Select solutions to fit ROI objectives for your buildings and campus.

Verify
the “Before” usage with the “After” efficiencies – save 13% – 27% of your
energy bill.

Managing
energy is analogous to managing money. Know how much you have, how it’s used
and how to save more of it.

Quantifying
your energy in dollars and modeling changes to show savings in dollars lets Controllers
find needed cash and lets management estimate increased equity value.

 

Good
for Small Business

When
the data is in your Dashboard, you and analysts can evaluate it from anywhere.

Several
employees from management, controllers office, and facilities management can
collaborate on tracking the swings, cost comparisons and anomalies of energy
usage, then translate them into cost reduction projects.

 

 

Topic A – E-Financial Management,
Specific – Financial Justification

 

Lower
costs by increasing efficiency. It takes finding the problems and then
proposing projects that require expenditures.

 

Financial
justifications are necessary.

 

 

But
with the current climate of incentives, which will not last, the wise are
taking advantage.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Topic A – E-Financial Management,
Specific – Efficiency Markets.

“Building efficiency is a critical
and important growth sector because the outcomes, including reduced operating
costs, reduced energy costs, greater reliability and resilience, are in high
demand.”
Kevin Self, vice president strategy
and corporate development, Johnson Controls

When outcomes are excellent, organizations take leadership
roles in their industries.

Prepared by Navigant Research, a recent report pegs global
revenue for advanced energy at nearly $1.3 trillion, up 12 percent over last
year.

Financial energy management,
based on realizing efficiencies equal savings, savings equal fatter bottom line
and that equals competitive advantage, is getting big.

Advanced Energy Economy (AEE) estimates range up to $199.5
billion in annual revenue which is bigger than the airline industry,

Clean and sophisticated management of power, fuels and
transportation — grew 14 percent last year.

With emphasis on buildings, saving energy grew to $60.1 billion
in revenue or 43 percent over four years in the U.S.
