Energy Conservation… the Business Case
. . .learn of all the pieces that result in sustainable solutions.

Energy conservation commonly equated to sustainability, when in fact it is only one piece. The goals of business are connected to the goals of conservation through regulation and commerce. Some things, like energy codes, are simply required and related costs become a cost of doing business. Oth-ers are evaluated as upgrades which are optional and must show financial merit and compete for avail-able investment funds. Capital measures have a payback period which is weighed against the busi-ness horizon look-ahead time frame. Utility rates and business operating cost distribution are keys to whether conservation measures are of business interest.

Don’t miss this presentation that will compare energy conservation fundamentals with business drivers and show how to identify alignments between the two for mutual benefit, with case examples.
