        Guide for Communications: Energy Conservation Program

        By Sustainability Program Lifecycle:

        Before program launch, Cenergistic will work with stakeholders from your organization to determine current performance for all buildings, set comfort standards, check ventilation, optimize air handling units, identify irrigation strategies, and so much more!

        The Energy Specialist hired for your program will attend a week-long course where they will receive world-class training. They will work closely with your Client Manager and implementation team to understand the ins and outs of your facilities.

        We offer a Program Liaison Forum for all new Program Liaisons, which is hosted in Dallas, Texas. The forum includes round table discussions, an overview of the measurement and verification process and in introduction to our ground-breaking technology. Program Liaisons are key to a successful implementation of Cenergistic’s energy conservation program.

        To learn more, check out a sample program launch plan:

        Sample Energy Program Launch Plan

        launch

        The start of your program is about creating awareness. As a result, we hope that your entire team joins our movement in sustainability. We recommend, at a minimum, you execute the following (templates provided above under “resources and templates”). 

        • Program Guidelines: In collaboration with Cenergistic, your Board of Directors will adopt energy policies, and your administrators will approve guidelines to be implemented throughout your organization. You are encouraged to post these guidelines on your website and throughout your facilities. 
        • Energy Specialist(s) Introduction: We encourage you to introduce your Energy Specialist(s) to your staff via an internal announcement. The announcement helps associate a new face with a name to foster collaboration. Your Energy Specialist(s) will be auditing your facilities and observing your equipment during both occupied and unoccupied times. 
        • Co-Branded Press Release: Coupled with internal communication, it’s important to educate your surrounding community of your new energy program and commitment to our environment. 

        Let the bragging begin! Don’t be shy. Let’s start sharing your success. Hint: ask your Client Manager about the awards application process. 

        As a result of your conservation efforts, you should now see a reduction in energy use and potential savings on your utility bills. It’s time to share the story of how your organization is evolving into a sustainability leader. 

        Work with your Client Manager and Program Liaison to understand the financial and environmental impact of your program. With access to Ceres Hub, your Program Liaison can share data points on how the adoption of energy conservation strategies and technology has reduced  greenhouse gas emissions compared to: miles driven by an average car, CO2 emissions from home’s energy use for one year, greenhouse gas emissions from tons of waste recycled, and carbon sequestered from trees grown for 10 years. 

        A great way to feature this data is in the form of an infographic that can be repurposed for social media or your website. 

        Here’s a snapshot:
