Strategic Energy Management / Customer Action Plans
Engaging customers using a strategic energy management framework helps program sponsors build strong, on-going relationships and realize the benefits of having customers repeatedly participate in efficiency programs. Customer Action Plans are used to set goals, prioritize opportunities, and establish management practices. Program sponsors find customer Action Plans to be a useful mechanism for promoting continuous improvement.
- Use the ENERGY STAR Guidelines for Energy Management and the Energy Management Assessment Matrix as a framework to help customers take a strategic approach to energy management, and to get buy-in from senior management.
- Assist customers with forming effective energy teams, using the "how-to" guide, Teaming Up to Saving Energy.
- Use EPA's Financial Evaluation Tools to quantify savings opportunities and evaluate financing options for your customers.
