Whitepaper summary

Written by: Allan Rudman

In the hydrocarbon sector, saving energy is the most reliable way to reduce operating costs and improve margins in a volatile market. Energy projects have a lower risk profile as they are less dependent upon relative prices of different products. Saving energy will always save money; today, tomorrow and next year. Energy projects will:

In this paper we consider the drivers to reduce energy consumption, challenges and opportunities, the benefits of an energy management system and KPIs.
