A Survey of Corporate Energy Efficiency Strategies
• 60% of respondents had full-time energy managers
• 87% built energy performance into the compensation review systems for facility/plant management
• 38% reported energy performance criteria at the senior management level.
Almost all respondents used specific financial criteria for energy efficiency investments, simple payback and internal rate of return (IRR) being the most common. Simple payback criteria were mostly three years or less, though two were as high as 5 years. IRR criteria were mostly in the 10-15% range, though one reported a 35% IRR threshold. Respondents also reported a variety of qualitative factors affecting their internal operations, supply chains, and product and services, and summarized the lessons learned and ongoing needs for their energy efficiency strategies.
