The importance of an integrated ICT strategy in Energy Management.


‘’Energy loss = Energy gained’’

Energy changes form. It can be used, distributed, harnessed and re-used.

‘’Knowledge = Power’’

Knowledge = Processes + Information (Data + Structure)

Processes can be mapped using applied supply chain process engineering methods (or processes are re-engineered through Lean-ICT mapping)

Information can be compiled (Information is derived from Data constructs)

Data can be collected and meaning can be derived from it using data analytics

Do organisations have the ICT strategy to manage their Energy Assets?

‘’If you cannot measure it you cannot manage it’’ Jack Welch GE
