Businesses ‘more committed than ever’ reveals energy management survey
Employee engagement, behaviour change and technology upgrades are the key areas businesses are focusing on to become more energy efficient, but funding remains the biggest barrier to initiating energy-saving programmes.
Those are some of the key findings of the third annual exclusive edie report – Energy Management: Procurement, Planning and Purchasing Priorities 2015/16 – which surveyed 381 people responsible for energy management within their organisation.
76 percent of respondents said that energy-efficient lighting systems are the top area they are focusing on this year. Sixty-five percent are pushing employee engagement initiatives, while 60% will be focusing on building/energy management systems – a significant increase from 47% in last year’s survey.
