Implementing Energy Saving Opportunities No. 18
Depending on the specific energy saving opportunity, the time from identifying the opportunity until you start saving energy can range from a few days for simple no-cost measures, to multiple months or even occasionally years for large, capital intensive projects.
It is recommended that you develop a project plan at the outset of the project. This should include a contingency period to help avoid unnecessary delays. It will also help you to communicate to project stakeholders when they can expect to start to realise the benefits outlined in the initial business case.
A key consideration to ensure a successful implementation is the lead time required for your project. Where possible try and align it with your business cycle, for example by making sure you obtain sign-off from decision makers before budgeting is finalised for the next financial year.
