GEMS Methodolgy

The methodology, a Global Energy Management System, is based on the following strategic pillars:

  1. Site Characterisation
  2. Performance Evaluation
  3. Energy Strategy
  4. Shared learnings and dissemination
These pillars are underpinned by essential foundations: (a) Global energy team and communication forum; (b) Knowledge base at site and global level; and (c) Corporate Energy Policy. The methodology incorporates both quantitative performance evaluation using novel key performance indicators and benchmarking, as well as qualitative characterisation using energy management maturity models

Systematic Decision Support Framework

Decision Support Framework

poll Go to Decision Support Framework

A decision support framework that allows for informed decision making by analysing all the relevant information and data sources. The aggregation of the data needed for implementing such a decision support framework (DSF) is based on four ‘pillars’ underpinned by three ‘foundations’ The DSF added value lies in the systematic, repeatable and scalable approach to evaluating all energy capital projects under the same criteria, and allowing a final decision with all the relevant information made available in an understandable and simplified manner. The DSF enables consistent project assessment against the predefined corporate energy policy (foundation) and energy strategy (pillar). It should be noted that the role of the DSF is not to eradicate the need for expert knowledge in project selection, but rather to present all the information required for decision-making in a clear and concise manner.

call_made Go to Energy Management Maturity Modelling

The development and implementation of a novel approach to deliver the qualitative metrics in the form of an Energy Management Maturity Model (EM3) for MMO with a global presence. EM3 is a fundamental step towards continuous improvement and optimal energy efficiency as part of GEMS. The maturity model should provide a global view of the overall network readiness for engaging in energy efficiency by adapting and enhancing existing ‘site focused’ maturity models to cater for MMO. The EM3 model needs to enable two-way communication between global and local energy management teams and provide an evaluation framework to highlight prioritization of elements with larger deviations. In parallel EM3 should provide the global energy management team with direction on where the organisation needs to focus central efforts to support the sites. The EM3 should enable the evaluation of key non-technical aspects of energy management required for continuous improvement within an MMO. The proposed model will support both baselining and benchmarking activities required as part of a global EnMS.
