There’s no denying energy prices are soaring. Just filling the tank on the average car today will run you anywhere from $55 to $75 or more. And as Schneider puts it in their latest article, “Energy inflation has taken its toll through cost increases, contract constraints, labor shifts, and supply issues. High fuel costs have even caused some factories to curtail production or shut down altogether.”

To address this, they recommend a three pronged approach, consisting of (1) tapping into available incentives and technology funding aimed at energy efficiency, (2) conducting energy audits to learn where most of your energy is being used, and how efficiently those processes are using it, and (3) implementing a measuring and monitoring system to keep track of increases in energy use, as well as to document savings from ongoing efforts to reduce waste and increase efficiency.
