Did Your Energy Efficiency Project Get Lost in Translation? Financial Speak for Facility Managers

Last Updated: 06-20-2020

Do you have energy efficiency projects that have been postponed or rejected due to capital budget limitations, other projects with better returns, or lack of expertise? Yet, from your perspective the project should be a “no brainer” due to the immediate positive cash flows generated by the energy savings. Understanding your organization’s decision-making process, being able to effectively speak to the benefit of improved cash flow, and improving your financial literacy can greatly increase your probability of receiving approval for a project. The self-funding aspect of energy efficiency is often under-appreciated by senior management, and you want to be able to clearly address any questions, concerns, and benefits.
