Measure lists can be a useful tool for a company that is investigating the energy saving options in conjunction with the results of an energy audit.
They support decisions on implementing energy efficiency measures and on feasibility studies within the framework of an energy action plan. Measure lists offer the company descriptions and impacts on energy consumption of potential measures that can be taken. Furthermore, these lists often refer to the payback times of these investments (short-term, medium-term or long-term).
Measure lists can be separated into two distinct categories: horizontal measure lists and industry-specific measure lists. Horizontal measure lists refer to measures that can be taken in any industry (please click here to download the BESS Horizontal Measure List), whilst industry-specific measure lists refer to measures that can be taken in specific industries.
For more information on measures which require no, or very low cost investments:
Financing of investments in energy management may come from your own resources, but there are external sources to consider too.
In case of limited financial resources and/or limited capacity you may think of outsourcing energy management activities.
For additional measures on energy efficiency and other environmental measures you can also look at the so-called IPPC.
