Energy managers wrestle with these 3 critical issues, Smart Energy Decisions is here to help
Executives responsible for energy management at Fortune 1000 companies have an extremely difficult job today. They're under pressure to drive reductions in their company’s energy use, and at the same time, senior management-level renewable energy procurement commitments are increasing. All of this is going on while new technologies that deal with energy efficiency and renewable energy sources are rapidly emerging.
In speaking with energy managers and facility managers across the country in many commercial and industrial sectors, we have learned they wrestle with many important decisions on a daily basis. Three key questions they have: Which technologies should we deploy? Who are the best suppliers for us to work with? How will we pay for implementing these new programs and technologies?
Smart Energy Decisions is a new online information resource dedicated exclusively to helping executives at commercial and industrial companies who are responsible for energy management and sourcing renewable energy. Our goal is to help you answer these critical questions.
Our mission at Smart Energy Decisions is to help Fortune 1000 commercial and industrial companies improve their profits and reduce their carbon emissions by adopting best practices in energy efficiency and renewable energy.
