Strategic Energy Planning

Strategic energy planning is the development of an overall energy resource plan to ensure that necessary energy resources are available, and to make the most cost effective energy decisions. It provides for orderly growth in energy consumption and transition to new fuels or suppliers when required. A strategic energy plan will address short and long term actions to improve and sustain the energy efficiency of the facility, define procurement strategy, and provide contingencies for outages, expansion, or reduction in production and occupancy. This class provides an overview of the important prerequisites for planning and the components of an effective plan.
