Each dollar you save on your energy bill is another dollar on your bottom line. Except this dollar is a rather special dollar. First of all, it’s a dollar that did not require additional labour to produce or a new manufacturing plant to make. Statistically speaking 50% of your energy saving potential required little or no investment to achieve and will pay back the investment in less than one year. Of the other 50% energy saving, 20% of this will provide a payback time of less than 2 years and the remaining 30% in less than 3 years.
There is also a more pressing reason to save on your energy usage. There is mounting environmental pressure on both the public and private sectors to reduce energy consumption and manage energy usage more efficiently. All of our futures including that of your business will be determined by how successful we are in reducing the levels of fossil fuels that we burn and the amount of electricity we use.
How much is your organisation contributing to greenhouse gas emissions?
When you use electricity or burn fuel you contribute to the release of carbon dioxide (CO2) into the atmosphere. On a global basis it all adds up to billions of tons per year. This CO2 causes the earth to warm up. This extra warming injects more energy into our oceans and wind systems, melts ice deposits and a host of other effects that are affecting our plants in mostly negative ways.
According to Greentechmedia.com, right now “industry accounts for around one-third of the world’s energy use – more than any other end-use sector of the economy. Additionally, industrial-energy demand is projected to increase by as much as 44 percent over the next 20 years, particularly in emerging and developing countries. This, of course, means there will be an unprecedented increase in the greenhouse gas emissions that are associated with climate change.”
Global warming and government legislation
The global-warming crisis has compelled governments to put plans in place to attempt to curb wastage of energy resources – both for their own municipalities as well as for industry at large. A substantial portion of carbon dioxide emissions comes from the burning of fossil fuels to generate energy. As such, it’s incumbent on governments to create legislation around energy usage.
Easier, better energy management starts here
Any organisation that is serious about flourishing in today’s competitive global market would be well advised to show its stakeholders, partners, clients and the public that it is committed to doing its part. Doing good is, after all, good for business.
