Integrating Procurement in the Energy Team
Prior to "re-engineering" its energy program, Merck's energy program had a procurement representative, but no aggressive measures to optimize pricing based on usage. With the creation of a "Global Energy Team," Merck's demand management and energy supply-side entities now work more closely together to find ways to optimize elements of each other's areas to uncover greater energy savings. For example, the energy supply-side worked with the demand-side energy team members to facilitate a new "sourcing management process" that leveraged that team's efforts to improve demand metering and monitoring as well as implement internal and external benchmarking.
One significant result of this process: the energy supply-side now uses data provided by the demand side (delete team) to develop new options and recommendations for energy supply options. The two areas have also collaborated to create an energy "dashboard", which tracks and evaluates energy performance worldwide and can be seen by all employees on the energy website.
