360 Energy, EnWin Utilities and Union Gas have partnered to help companies remain profitable, strengthen their competitive advantage, and continue the focus on green initiatives by developing an effective energy management strategy.
By pushing for aggressive cost reductions and a concentration on fine-tuning its lean processes, manufacturers will need to focus and sustain savings through energy cost reductions. A three stage business-solution methodology sponsored by EnWin Utilities (electricity and water) and Union Gas (natural gas) provides Windsor-area businesses a streamlined approach to engage a site’s workforce (from floor level to senior management) to control and reduce daily energy costs and consumption.
The program kicks off with a one-day event on Thursday, November 13, 2008 at the Caboto Club in Windsor, Ontario. This limited seat event is a high-profile program and should not to be missed by organizations that are serious about controlling their energy expenditures. As an added bonus, Rod Peturson will be the lunchtime guest speaker discussing the design of the David Suzuki Public School – "the most advanced energy efficient school in Canada”, which is being built in Windsor.
Participants of the one-day Sustainable Energy Planning Workshop (SEP) will focus on five key areas of energy management while assessing their current energy management programs by developing a scorecard and baseline map of their current activity. Exposure to over 60 world-wide best practices and energy saving techniques will motivate companies to capitalize on missed opportunities while identifying what internal resources they have available to generate sustainable savings.
For those that are interested, a site pre-assessment can also be accomplished outlining who should take the SEP program and the current strengths and weaknesses of the active energy management strategy. This is intended to provide the company with a clear picture of what areas they can expect to be improved after the SEP session. After completion of the workshop, 360 Energy will also be offering additional support to help develop a plan and sell the concept to senior management to begin to initiate the plan. Successful execution will pave the way to utilizing the appropriate technology and creating a sustainable energy program for years to come.
