The Energy Manager - Should He Be Working Himself Out Of A Job?
MetadataShow full item record
The germ of what I would like to discuss with you today was generated in a shirt-sleeves session here in Houston last year. A number of you and other senior Energy Managers, some of whom have since retired, in the wake of the recession that all of us have been living through during the past year, participated in that discussion. The basic question raised in that discussion was 'Are Energy Managers really necessary?' I was somewhat surprised to find a number of senior people who took the position that we should all be doing our very best to 'work ourselves out of a job.' As a result of that discussion, I have spent considerable time and talked to energy specialists, including Milt Williams and several others, and would like to review with you today the results of this thinking to date. I would also like to challenge further discuss ion and debate among those of US who are deeply involved in the management of energy programs.
