Alignment

Alignment OF FACILITIES UNDER A SINGLE STRATEGIC VISION SO THAT RESULTS ARE OPTIMIZED THROUGHOUT THE COMPANY AND SAVINGS ARE NOT OFFSET BY NON-PARTICIPATING FACILITIES

Hospital Energy has identified best practice in managing energy spend for commercial and industrial businesses and institutions is by aligning enterprise goals and actions.  Alignment is in two major ways: 

  • Across Functions
  • Across Multiple Facilities and Geographic Locations

 

Regional and national institutions and businesses, despite the large geographic footprint, can be aligned around a single energy management strategy. This will allow for financial controls of the energy spend and eliminate conflicting strategies that create offsetting budget gains and losses.

Functional Alignment

  • Facilities - Understands the historical load and the  factors that contribute to changes in demand.
  • Supply Chain - Contracting expertise
  • Finance - Trained in financial risk management. Sets organizational risk standard

“While savings are important, I think the process Hospital Energy helped create and implement is more vital. It led to a cultural change in which dozens of our facilities and corporate finance aligned under one strategic vision.”
