Managing a company’s energy needs can be a daunting task, especially as investors and consumers make more environmental and sustainability demands on corporate citizens. Citigroup’s real estate portfolio is spread out over 60 million square feet in 12,000 locations in 160 countries. The company is exploring the options available to it with a Energy-as-a-Service model, changing the energy purchasing dynamic to meet the needs of both operations and stakeholders in an environmentally responsible manner.

In this session, you will learn:

  • What is required of a company as it moves from dealing with energy as a commodity to considering it as something that can be outsourced.
  • How to search for a partner who can approach your company’s energy management needs as a compensation model.
