Implementing Energy Saving Opportunities No. 11
Providing a well thought through executive summary will help engage key decision makers from the outset. If the project is technical in nature include a lay person’s explanation of the technology before going on to say how you propose to apply it.
When drafting the proposal:
Have a clear proposal culminating in a single recommendation or request
Present a summary of the case you want to make
Have the appropriate analysis of the costs, benefits, risks and implementation timetable to hand should there be questions or further detail required
Avoid jargon and explain any abbreviations
Use images and charts to help communicate where possible
Ideally, you should give just one clear recommendation that the senior decision makers can endorse. Show that you have considered alternatives.
In our next newsletter we will discuss: Implementation of low-cost and no-cost recommendations
