[Audio] Energy management is a way of working structure with the energy issue and a standardized energy or environmental management system is a tool that can be applied. From: Introduction to Industrial Energy Efficiency, 2020. Energy management is the usage and application of technology including planning and operation of both production and consumption of energy with a view to enhance energy efficiency of an organization ( VDI, 2007, p. 3). "The judicious and effective use of energy to maximize profits (minimize costs) and enhance competitive positions" ( Cape Hart, Turner and Kennedy, Guide to Energy Management Fairmont press inc. 1997) "The strategy of adjusting and optimizing energy, using systems and procedures so as to reduce energy requirements per unit of output while holding constant or reducing total costs of producing the output from these systems"

[Audio] The objective of Energy Management is ✓ To achieve and maintain optimum energy procurement and utilization, throughout the organization and: ✓ To minimize energy costs / waste without affecting production & quality ✓ To minimize environmental effects. Steps of energy management ( EPA, 2012) Step 1: Make commitment​ Step 2: Assess performance​ Step 3: Set goals​ Energy Star, a US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) program, formulated a guideline for scientific energy management practice; the basic seven steps are as follows (EPA, 2012)​( Fig left-side)

[Audio] Energy Management Assessments •An energy management assessment is a process to evaluate an organization's progress toward developing and improving an energy management program. •Generally energy management assessments use some sort of scoring system to rate how far along the spectrum an organization is in a variety of categories, with particular focus on the cultural and organizational aspects of an energy management program. •For example, there is an ENERGY STAR® energy management assessment tool available for free download (it is called the Energy Program Assessment Matrix). •The tool is a spreadsheet-based matrix that consists of a series of energy management categories and three possible ratings to score an organization's status for each category: "little or no evidence," "some elements," and "fully implemented."​
