Executive Summary

The Verdantix Global Energy Leaders Survey 2013: Data Tables provides a global benchmark of energy management priorities, budgets and governance based on interviews with 250 heads of energy in firms with revenues of at least $250 million. The respondents represent 20 industries and are located in 13 countries. This global energy survey provides hard data against which energy leaders can benchmark their spending plans and priorities for 2014. The data set also provides unique insights into governance and spending patterns for firms supplying products and services such as consulting, technology services, equipment and software.

The file contains data collected through the Verdantix Global Energy Leaders Survey 2013 with 250 energy decision-makers and buyers segmented by region and industry. Verdantix clients should use this data with the report “The State Of Global Corporate Energy Management” for context and to understand the scope of the study. 

The 250 interviews were conducted by telephone. For quality control, we carefully screened all respondents and ensured we only spoke to individuals directly involved in decisions that relate to energy efficiency or the purchase of energy management equipment.
