Establishing an energy team is an important first step to embedding energy efficiency in your business operations. After all, buildings don’t use energy, people do. And the people in your company make decisions affecting energy use every day. By giving a diverse team ownership of energy management, you’ll improve buy-in from different parts of the organization, which will help you save even more.
The energy team is responsible for planning, implementing, monitoring, and evaluating the organizational energy management program. The team’s duties may also include delivering training, communicating results, and providing recognition.
