Case Study

Lower Energy Costs, Greater Sustainability According to Plan

With an annual U.S. energy spend of nearly $30 million, a global electronics manufacturer made a commitment to reduce its carbon footprint by 15 percent within five years. As the company’s facility manager, we were asked to develop programs to meet these goals. We immediately identified tactics at each facility that would reduce energy use by 7 percent and greenhouse emissions by 10 percent within three years.

Jones Lang LaSalle recommended that the electronics manufacturer also pursue a more large-scale strategic approach. Our energy and sustainability experts helped develop and implement a comprehensive portfolio energy management plan for all U.S. locations. Short- and long-term initiatives included:

  • Analyzing utility consumption and cost information to obtain optimal utility pricing
  • Reducing data analysis time from 45 to five days to identify issues while they could be quickly addressed
  • Developing an innovative benchmarking tool to quantify energy management effectiveness and drive operating improvements at each facility
  • Charging facility managers and chief engineers with process improvement at their locations

Portfolio energy management has helped minimize the impact of electrical rate increases of up to 20 percent in key locations, and the company is now in an excellent position to achieve its carbon footprint reduction goal. Powerful energy strategy lessons learned in the United States are being implemented across global operations.
