Overview of Services
Take an Active Energy Management approach to efficiently manage energy usage, optimize utility rate structures, and realize sustained reductions of energy costs.
Energy costs are frequently cited as one of the top three operating expenses, and can be as much as 4-5 percent of cost of goods sold for manufacturers. But, volatile energy markets, limited visibility to component level costs, and increased pressure to improve sustainability metrics are driving companies to reevaluate their approach to managing energy costs.
But, even with a renewed focus on energy costs, the majority of energy spend is still largely unmanaged. Why? Approximately two thirds of energy markets are regulated, and many companies presume that these energy costs are simply not addressable. But in fact, there is an opportunity to negotiate these rates. For those companies that do manage their energy spend in both regulated and deregulated markets, they still leave money on the table. Energy market dynamics are constantly changing. Without the right benchmarks, rate comparisons, and supplier knowledge, procurement decisions are often sub-optimized.
Many companies have also launched efficiency initiatives to reduce energy consumption. But, traditional approaches such as energy audits fall short, delivering savings that quickly dissipate. A holistic approach that integrates supply and demand management improves overall results. That's where Procurian Energy® can help. We bring together deep energy expertise, market intelligence, and technology to deliver superior financial performance through proactive energy demand and supply management.

What’s Wrong with Traditional Energy Management?
Although many firms have implemented short-term measures to address energy cost and sustainability commitments, these efforts are largely falling short. This paper looks at why traditional approaches are failing, and outlines an active energy management approach that changes the game and generates sustainable energy cost reductions.
