EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Energy management software apps first started flooding the market in 2008 when much of the conversation in the market was around carbon. Since 2008 corporates’ acknowledgment of the importance of energy management, prices and legislation has increased, with energy rather than carbon now the topic of conversation. As energy management strategies have evolved over time, firms have shared responsibility for procuring, managing and reporting on energy consumption across multiple business functions. In some instances, they have outsourced the responsibility to third-party service providers. In this report for the leaders of business development, strategy and marketing for energy management software suppliers, Verdantix identifies nine user groups that get value from energy management software. The report also analyses the importance of aligning software capabilities with different user groups and why suppliers should be targeting facilities teams more.
