There are many reasons why an organisation should take energy efficiency seriously, from improving the economic health to helping with reducing damage to the environment. Many measures can also bring substantial benefits in terms of employee comfort through improved heating, insulation and the avoidance of cold spots.

Attention to energy efficiency can often highlight deficiencies in other areas such as maintenance, process yield and quality, therefore giving significant additional productivity benefits.
