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

Which selling technique do you think works better for our company... the hard sell or the softer, knowledgeable sale?

1 Answers

When speaking to higher-end homeowners you do not want to be pushy or force them to make a sale on the spot. You simply want to inform them of the product line and ask questions to see if there is a mutually beneficial match.
