How do you convince a CIO of a utility to care about energy efficiency?

5 Answers

He cares because if he can lower the system peak number, he can lesson the amount of spinning reserves he must have in place, whixh in effect is stranded capital. Less

CIO cares since as a company executive he needs to work with his customers (operating unit executives) to cut costs and increase revenues. By providing a solution that mines data to assist customer to save energry usage - the CIO is prioviding a solution for the utility to flatten its energy demand curve. Less

Simple. You demonstrate a cost savings analysis comparing efficient energy use to inefficient energy use. Use a graph of the inefficient use, compare to an efficient use, then run assign the value. That is just one way. This of course assumes that the inefficient use cost more then the cost to correct the problem. But if you do make the changes you can leverage the changes into a PR piece and get a double benefit (efficient use and a "look at us going green!" piece.) Less

Who are you trying to kid? It is pretty obvious that the most recent positive reviews are being posted by senior management that is currently working for the company to boost ratings on this website. Less

Company is awful. Owner and President an absolute joke. Run and run fast!
