Get Active: A New Approach to Energy Management

As the demand for energy grows and energy becomes more digitized, decentralized and decarbonized, leading companies are changing how electricity, natural gas and other resources are bought and sold, consumed and tracked. By managing these activities in a more integrated way, companies have a holistic view into performance — and access to the data needed to refine strategies and drive innovation. 

Integrated Decision Making Creates New Opportunities

Given increasing regulatory and competitive pressures, and calls from shareholders, customers and employees to operate with a lighter environmental touch, companies have reached a crossroads. They must re-evaluate their strategies and develop new operating models.

Initiatives are often managed independently due to departmental divisions. These barriers, often the result of misaligned leadership and competing objectives, promote inefficiencies and yield missed opportunities. They are often fueled by inconsistent data and a lack of visibility across the organization. In leading companies, these departments are becoming tightly integrated, working together in support of the company’s core goals and initiatives.

We call this Active Energy Management. And whether they know it or not, most organizations are already on this path. Megatrends are driving this convergence and creating new opportunities, as shown below.
