Benefits of energy management and energy efficiency projects

In my opinion all the benefits of increased energy efficiency can be classified in two main categories:

1. DIRECT BENEFITS
- decreased energy consumption
- lower energy costs
- profit increase
- lower environmental impact etc.

2. INDIRECT BENEFITS
- less impact of energy prices increase
- better competitive advantage due to higher energy efficiency
- expressing social responsibility
- improving public image
- fulfilling low regulations and/or standards etc.

It is obvious that these are only some of the benefits and each company/individual has its own characteristics and possible benefits that could be achieved. Implementing energy management system and continuous improvement of energy efficiency is certainly a multi-benefit program.

  1. When you replace a single pane window in your house with an energy-efficient one, the new window prevents heat from escaping in the winter, so you save energy by using your furnace or electric heater less while still staying comfortable. In the summer, efficient windows keep the heat out, so the air conditioner does not run as often and you save electricity.
