In every industry, from retail outlets to manufacturing plants, energy costs are a large part of each facility's operating expenses. With energy costs continuing to rise, it is imperative that businesses learn to manage their energy consumption.

What does this mean? What is energy management and what are some of the common mistakes that I, as an engineer or manager, should be careful not to make? This course provides the answer to this question, as well as: Who should be in charge of my company's energy management program? What areas within the operation should I be focusing on to maximize energy savings? What are some of the influences on energy management that can't be controlled? Is it true that I can save energy costs simply by moving some operations to a different time of day?

In addition to finding out the answers to these questions, you will learn the correct method for measuring energy management success. It is not as simple as looking at your energy bill at the end of each month. Learn why it is a mistake to simply look at overall cost savings when evaluated the effectiveness of your energy management program.
