Energy Management System Assessment
This is a simple questionnaire that will help you to evaluate your energy management system. Select answers that describes the actual status of your system then submit the survey. I will evaluate your answers and send you back the evaluation report with short possible improvements actions plan for your reference.
Your facility type is:
Oil and gas
Small manufacturing facility
The manpower size of your facility is:
More than 1000 employee
Between 500 to 1000 employee
Between 100 to 500 employee
Less than 100 employee
Do you have an Energy management system?
What is the approximate value of your facility annual energy bill?
More than 1 Million US $
less than 1 Million US $
Less than 100,000 US $
What is the Energy cost share out of your operational cost?
Less than 25% of the OPEX value
Between 25% and 50% of the OPEX value
Between 50% and 75% of the OPEX value
Between 75% and 100% of the OPEX value
What is the total energy consumption of your facility and what is your Energy sources ? (for example we are using x value GJ energy per day or per month and the energy sources are Natural gas (x value) and electricity (X value) or others.)
Please select the answer that represent your case from the below options.
What is the current status of your Energy policy?
No energy policy
General guidelines but not documented.
Written energy policy set by management but not adopted.
Formal energy policy established with objectives and targets but weak implementation due to lack of committment from top management (Not part of Management Reviews).
Documented and communicated Energy Policy with; defined scope & boundaries, measurable energy objectives & targets, commitment to legal & other compliances, supporting energy efficiency in purchasing, and is integreal part of management reviews.
Who is responsible for Energy management in your facility?
No energy management or any formal delegation of responsibility for energy consumption.
Energy management is the part-time responsibility of someone with limited authority or influence, mostly from technical side but no links to financial department.
Energy manager assigned, reporting to ad-hoc committee, but line management and authority are unclear.
Energy manager and energy team members are nominated by top management comprising of technical, financial and purchase departments but roles and responsibilities are unclear
Energy management fully integrated into management structure. Clear delegation of responsibility for energy consumption. Energy planning is conducted on defined intervals including energy profiling and energy Reviews, leading to clearly set energy action plans and is integral part of management reviews.
How could you describe managing information system in your energy management system?
No energy information system. Actual energy consumption is not part of accounting and/or costing.
Cost reporting based on energy/utility bills and energy production (in case of captive power) data. Engineer compiles reports for internal use within technical department.
Monitoring and targeting reports based on supply meter, bills and energy production data (in case of captive power). Energy manager has ad-hoc involvement in budget setting.
Energy Performance Indicators (EnPIs) for major energy sources and significant energy uses with energy baseline values are defined. EnPIs are considered in costing and accounting, but energy savings are not reported and communicated in terms of EnPIs.
Comprehensive system sets targets and monitors appropriate EnPIs for all energy sources and significant energy uses; monitors effectiveness of action plans, objectives and targets; evaluates actual versus expected energy consumption; and investigates & responds to significant deviations in energy performance. Energy Performance reviewed by top management periodically.
How you could describe the communications for your energy management system?
No communication about energy efficiency. No consideration of energy aspects in regular operations.
Basic and Informal communication to employees on energy efficiency.
Some information or instructions on energy saving practices displayed in most relevant areas, some trainings conducted and enforced to a major extent. Suggestions from staff on EE measures considered on ad-hoc basis.
Proper work instructions on energy efficiency displayed and enforced in all significant energy use areas, Regular programme for staff awareness and training executed, System for suggestions from staff on EE measures in place.
Energy performance is communicated to all levels in the organization, regular programme of awareness and training on energy espects are developed and execute. Energy efficiency suggestions by staff are reviewed by energy team and top management.
How you could describe your Energy consumption measurements and monitoring system?
We have no monitoring or measurements for our energy sources consumption.
We have monitoring for the main supply energy sources but we do not have measurement systems for the internal consumers.
We have monitoring for the main supply energy sources and major energy consumers but we do not have measurement systems for small and medium consumers.
We have monitoring for the main supply energy sources, major energy consumers and small & medium consumers.
How could you describe the implementation for actions in your energy management system?
No energy efficiency (EE) measures implemented. No regular maintenance with the objective to improve energy efficiency.
No clear tendency regarding improvement of EE performance. Implementation of EE measures on ad-hoc basis, not following a general action plan that is based on the energy policy.
EE performance is improving. Implementation of some of the EE measures as defined in an action plan that is based on the energy policy.
Continuous improvement of EE performance. Implementation of a large part of energy efficiency measures as defined in the action plan that is inline with the energy policy. Some delays or changes in original plans as EE is not the highest priority.
Continuous improvement of EE performance. Implementation of (nearly) all energy efficiency measures as defined in an ambitious action plan that is inline with the energy policy. Energy performance is essential part of procurement, design, operation & maintenance of significant energy uses.
How you are managing investments in your energy management system?
No investment for improvement of energy efficiency.
Only investment in low cost measures.
Investment only in low cost measures or measures with short payback time.
Same payback criteria employed as for all other investment, taking into consideration reduced operation costs due to reduced energy consumption.
Positive discrimination in favour of ‘green’ schemes with detailed investment appraisal (life-cycle cost accounting) of all new-build and refurbishment opportunities.
What is the status of Energy efficiency awareness in your facility?
There is no energy efficiency awareness in my facility.
We conducted basic training for a selected members from Operations and engineering teams.
We conduct a regular certified training and launch different types of awareness campaigns.
What is the status of Recognition and employee rewarding system for their proposals in your facility?
There is no rewarding system for any proposals or initiatives in my facility.
We have a simple rewarding system for any production increase or cost reduction proposals from employees.
We have a good and attractive rewarding system for any production increase or cost reduction proposals from employees.
The way forward
once you submit your reply, I will send you a brief evaluation for your Energy management system with the proposed action plan to improve your system.
