In this series, we are going to guide you through the process of establishing an energy management strategy that is fully embedded in your organisation. It’s a process like any other and in this introductory strategic overview, we want to give you the basic secrets to success; knowledge, power, and resilience.
This element is all about knowing your organisation, knowing your energy use and having the evidence to back up your recommendations and ideas. The fundamental parts of this are:
Chances are (as the person dealing with energy management) you don’t have it – or not as much as you’d like – but you know some people who do. Therefore, armed with your data and ideas, you need to make sure you have those who make the decisions on board.
Don’t just stop with the senior team though, if energy management is truly going to be adopted within your organisation, you need to get everyone involved.
Timothy Holman, Head of Operations at TEAM says:
Getting the ear of the right people in your organisation is key, understanding their priorities and demonstrating how good energy management can help them achieve their goals too.
You can’t do it alone and you need to ensure this is a strategy that will permeate your organisation. This is the only way to ensure energy management becomes fully embedded in every day working and attitudes and outlasts changes in staff and departments.
Timothy Holman, Head of Operations at TEAM goes on to say:
Understand the audience and think about how you would like them to respond to the information they see. Tailoring the design and the configuration to different stakeholders will help you get your messages across.
