For those in charge of energy procurement and management at firms with annual revenues above $250m, even the tiniest error in one part of the business can multiply itself across the whole company – leading to big problems. So it’s up to heads of energy in all industries to keep a close eye on what they’re spending, and where they can cut back.
Verdantix wanted to find out what heads of energy plan to do in 2014, and how they’re going to split up their budgets, so it spoke to 250 of them at firms with annual revenues above $250m. These people had job titles including Head of Energy, Head of Property, Facilities Director and Operations Director. In this issue of EL Analysts, Susan Clarke dissects the findings.
