EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

This report provides a global benchmark of energy management priorities, budgets and governance based on interviews with 285 decision-makers positioned at an executive level; its findings will help shape corporate decisions on energy and energy management. Corporate energy management is increasingly a centralized, enterprise-wide concern. Although many firms have started to consolidate global energy management decision-making, implementation of strategies is still delegated to local levels – where energy managers struggle to fund projects to meet corporate targets. This report helps energy directors to benchmark their organization’s energy management strategies, investments and priorities across energy management initiatives for the next 12 months. It also helps providers of energy technologies and services to align their business and product plans with market demand across 24 countries and 21 sectors.
