Many facilities/energy managers’ energy budgets are stretched for several reasons. They may be paying higher prices than necessary for energy (and the often overlooked associated transportation costs). The way buildings, systems and equipment are maintained and operated may be inefficient. Human factors, bad habits and practice, can also make a significant difference.

Many solutions to these problems usually cost little to implement, some are legal requirements. Some measures that reduce demand reduction yield secondary benefits such as increased time between equipment failures, improved comfort, and even higher process yields. Others may relax constraints on supply capacity, and thereby defer or avoid capital expenditure.
