It is important to understand that there are two key elements of a sound energy management program:
1) To reduce energy consumption
2) To control the cost from the supplier An end result energy of the program is also a reduction of plant downtime, which is often more valuable than the energy savings. Most industrial and commercial energy users in almost any facility can adopt these practices.
