Managing and Controlling Decentralized Corporate Energy Systems - Transferring Best-practice Methods to the Energy Domain

Christine Koppenhoefer, Jan Fauser, Dieter Hertweck

Abstract

Managing decentralized corporate energy systems is a challenging task for enterprises. However, the integration of energy objectives into business strategy creates difficulties resulting in inefficient decisions. To improve this, practice-proven methods such as the Balanced Scorecard and Enterprise Architecture Management are transferred to the energy domain. The methods are evaluated based on a case study. Managing multi-dimensionality and high complexity are the main drivers for an effective and efficient energy management system. Both methods show a positive impact on managing decentralized corporate energy systems and are adaptable to the energy domain.
