Step 5: Implement action plan

You’ve made a plan for how to improve the energy efficiency of your clients’ properties. Now it’s time to execute it. Don’t forget these key steps:

Raise awareness and build support

Help your client communicate with everyone in their organization. Develop targeted information for key audiences about your client’s energy management program. Create incentives that motivate staff to help achieve goals. Encourage your client to bring in their in-house marketing communications team to help them get the word out.

Train staff

Through training, access to information, and transfer of successful practices, procedures, and technologies, you can expand the capacity of your client’s staff to carry out the action plan.

Track and monitor

Use Portfolio Manager or Plant EPIs to track and monitor progress regularly.
