Effective energy management begins and ends with effective energy committees. They are the driving force behind all successful energy management programs. These well-planned and well-structured mechanisms bring administrators, facility managers, mechanics, technicians and other staff together with a common focus and agenda. As the manager of your energy committee, Pathian follows a proven energy committee protocol that allows you to measure and document the success of your efforts. This is key to obtaining funding for energy-reduction projects and receiving proper recognition.
Pathian’s Energy Manager Web portal enables energy committees to follow the Department of Energy’s ENERGY STAR® guidelines for effective energy management. As the manager of your energy committee, we will help you structure a strategic approach to energy management.
- We will begin by profiling your facility’s energy consumption habits using our patent-pending application, Pathian Analysis. This will help us understand how you consume energy at all outside loads and identify operating deficiencies in your mechanical system operation.
- Next, we will help your energy committee create a working environment to share ideas and set realistic energy-reduction goals for your facility.
- Working with your staff, engineers and contractors, we will guide you through the creation of action plans, allowing you to obtain your energy-reduction goals.
- Once your action plans have been implemented, we will help you evaluate your progress to gain recognition for your achievements.
The Energy Manager Web portal will allow you to:
- Assign an energy director
- Create an energy team
- Develop vendor and supplier contact lists
- Take energy committee minutes online and share with others
- Create an energy conservation opportunity (ECO) list
- Create ECO projects and set energy conservation goals for each project
- Assign an overall manager, contractors and vendors to the project
- Create open issues lists and manage their completion
- Assign ECO tasks and manage their completion
- Validate the project’s actual energy reduction totals vis-à-vis goals
