September — Energy Efficiency

Facility managers are charged with moving their facilities toward best practices for utility management. This directive is a result of many factors — a desire for cost savings, environmental stewardship, federal or local regulations. The facility manager's role in utility management is to look for efficiencies at the individual component level, the system level, and the organization level. By maximizing the efficiency and usability of the building, facility management supports the goals of the O&M business and the mission of the organization.
