The Energy Management
‘An efficient, easyto use and effectivemethod ofestablishing yourOrganisationalProfile’
Without the input of external consultants and benchmarking activities,many organisations may believe they are doing all they can to reducetheir energy use and costs.You can discover the truth in this by drawing an accurate picture of yourorganisations current approach to energy matters. This is done usingthe Energy Management Matrix.The Energy Management Matrix has been devised to:assist you to identify and describe the current level of sophisticationof different aspects of energy management in your organisation;assist you in organising an energy management strategy.The Matrix provides an efficient, easy to use and effective methodof establishing your Organisational Profile.Reading the Matrix is quite simple. Each column deals with one of six crucialenergy management issues: policy, organisation, motivation, informationsystems, marketing and investment. The ascending rows, from 0 to 4,represent the increasingly sophisticated nature of these issues.

Level 0 
At this level, it is fair to say that energy management is not on yourorganisation’s agenda. There is no energy policy, no formal energymanagement structure, no means of reporting, and no specific personin charge of energy use.
Level 1
Your organisation’s energy management situation starts to improve.While there is no official energy policy, someone has been delegated therole of energy manager. The energy manager promotes an awarenessof energy matters via a loose network of informal contacts with those directlyresponsible for energy consumption. This person also responds to requestsfor advice on an ad hoc basis.
Level 2 
Energy management is acknowledged as important by senior managementbut, in practice, there is little active commitment or support for energymanagement activities.
Level 3 
Senior managers acknowledge the value of an energy reduction program.Energy consumption issues are therefore integrated into the organisationsstructure. There is a comprehensive information system and establishedsystem of reporting. There is also an agreed program for energy managementand investing in energy efficiency.
Level 4 
Energy consumption is a major priority throughout the organisation.Actual performance is monitored against targets and the benefits of energyefficiency measures calculated. Achievements in energy management arewell reported and energy consumption is related to its impact on widerenvironmental issues. Senior management is committed to energy efficiency.
How to use the EnergyManagementMatrix
To establish your organisationalprofile, consider each columnindividually. Place a mark in eachcolumn which best describes whereyou think you are currently located(this can be within or between cells,depending on what you think is more accurate).Your Organisational Profile isdetermined by joining the marksacross the columns. This will describeyour organisation’s approach toenergy management, and providean overall indication of how wellbalanced energy managementis within your organisation.The peaks represent where yourcurrent effort is most sophisticated.The troughs indicate where you areleast advanced. Don’t be concernedif the Profile is uneven, this is notunusual and is the case in mostorganisations.Your Organisational Profile will showyou those aspects where some furtherattention is required to ensure energymanagement is developed in arounded, effective way. The Profilewill also assist you in your attemptsat organising an energymanagement strategy, whichwill come later in our
 Management Guide to Energy Efficiency.
