Soft-systems model of energy management and checklists for energy managers

  • Fawkes, Steven
Registered author(s):

    This paper presents a model of the energy management process developed using a soft systems methodology. The model divides energy management into 4 levels; good housekeeping, retro-fit projects, plant replacement projects and new process design. The purpose of the model is to assist energy managers and other agents of change implement technical changes resulting in energy conservation. However, as with all soft systems models, it should not be taken as a final development, but rather a starting point for structured debate. From the model a number of checklists for energy managers are developed and presented.
