In a world with increasingly constrained resources, energy captures top management attention. Using language that is accessible to as many readers as possible, this book explains the connection between energy and business performance. Corporate leaders, production managers, machine operators, policy advocates, and technology providers will all learn how day-to-day choices relate to the risks and rewards of energy use. Concise, to-the-point chapters explain how energy is invested, preserved, and ultimately positioned to create wealth. Hard-nosed business leaders should appreciate the section with examples that show a strong financial case for energy improvements, including the save-or-buy criterion, the economic penalty for "doing nothing," the break-even cost, and the budget for supporting design and analysis work. Managing Energy from the Top Down is written with the goal of making the challenges and opportunities of energy use accessible to all readers that have a stake in industrial competitiveness.
