This spring we worked with Greenbiz to develop a online survey to better understand the emerging role of corporate energy managers.  158 companies responded, with 63% with revenues greater than $1 billion.
 
Some survey highlights:
•    More companies have a dedicated energy manager at the corporate level. This mirrors the trend of adding of corporate sustainability leaders that started several years ago
•    Energy efficiency and energy management are the top priorities (over energy procurement and renewables)
•    The two most common key performance indicators (KPI) tracked by senior management are energy intensity by facility (54%) and overall energy cost year to date compared to previous year or budget (45%)
•    More CFOs are becoming involved, but energy management is not a priority for CFO at 38% of reporting companies
•    18% of companies plan on investing in additional software for plants and facilities this year. 23% indicated they will purchase software to monitor and manage energy at their facilities for the first time this year
•    The awareness of different vendor solutions remains low, with no single vendor mentioned by more than 31% of respondents.
