About This Book
Energy! It's one of a building's major cost components. It's a hot topic and will continue to be so. For most facilities, the cost of energy is not going down-only up. It's essential to reduce energy costs on your building(s) whether new or existing.
Energy management is an integral part of the day-to-day operations for facility managers and property owners. Rising energy costs and increasing demand for sustainability are driving the need to reduce energy consumption in buildings and develop strategies for improving energy management.
How energy efficient is your facility or building? How does your energy use intensity (EUI) compare to a portfolio of similar buildings? Or, how does it compare to other buildings locally, statewide, or nationally?
Doing more with less is the often heard catch-phrase for FM's and CFO's in managing costs. The purpose of this guide is much the same. Energy issues can drain your budget and consume valuable resources.
This guide is essential for facility and property managers and their financial officers who are serious about reducing energy usage and its cost to their organization's triple bottom line.
