Energy Budgets At Risk (EBaR)®
An innovative approach to energy-efficiency investment and energy purchase decisions
Energy Budgets at Risk (EBaR)® introduces a new energy management framework that reduces energy costs and energy-efficiency investment risk by applying risk management tools developed in the financial industry.
EBaR quantitatively determines energy-efficiency investment risk and provides energy risk management investment strategies that reduce costs while meeting budget flexibility and risk tolerance requirements of individual organizations. By providing energy budget savings greater than investment costs, EBaR investments result in increased cash flows—creating the same financial bottom line impact as an increase in revenues. In fact, EBaR strategies can save 30% or more of current energy bills even after paying for energy-efficiency investments.
Written for a nontechnical audience, Energy Budgets at Risk (EBar)® shows all those on the frontline who are responsible for electric, natural gas, and fuel oil budgets in commercial, industrial, government, and institutional buildings and other facilities how to develop and apply a comprehensive, consistent financial risk management framework to evaluate energy budget risk; how to make the most of alternative energy-efficiency investments; and how to integrate efficiency investment decisions with purchase decisions. An opportunity to meet environmental goals through energy-efficiency investments that reduce energy use, EBaR analysis should be a cornerstone of every organization’s carbon-reducing efforts
