Most public buildings are open for business less than 25% of available time, yet lights are on, food is kept fresh, and buildings are heated or cooled 100% of the time. Despite this, an organization’s consumption of energy receives little focus and attention. Furthermore, with such a dependence on energy, most operations do not have preparedness plans that consider energy supply or market pricing. Energy is fast becoming a growing concern for most administrators. Those who choose to simply react to market conditions will not be taking the least cost-effective path, causing public dollars to be spent inefficiently. On the other hand, administrators who choose to understand their operational choices and develop a long-term strategy will be better prepared to entertain new pricing options, take advantage of efficient technologies, obtain financial incentives, and focus budget dollars on core operations. This workshop will introduce attendees to the elements of a sound strategic energy plan and the steps to assure that it is implemented.
