Energy management systems are the key to saving energy and reducing costs. Municipalities are increasingly considering energy efficiency measures in their own operations in an effort to reduce costs and increase sustainability. The information brochure outlines a step-by-step guide to energy management systems in municipalities and describes an energy management organisational model for implementation. It also presents a case study from the City of Cape Town illustrating how municipalities can transition from project-based energy efficiency interventions to a programmatic energy management systems approach.
