Day Two, Monday, February 25, 2019
Energy is the largest unaddressed risk faced by most companies, and can exceed foreign currency, interest rate & other operational risks. In this session, we will explore how taking a strategic, analytics-based portfolio approach to energy management helps clients increase risk-adjusted return on capital, protect themselves from rapidly changing markets and products, and outperform their competition. We will be reviewing a use case of a company's U.S. operations to highlight how a 10% increase in their electricity and natural gas prices would have decreased their earnings per share by over 7%. Additionally, we will explore how likely this is to happen over the next 1, 3, 5 and 10 years and identify the key underlying market factors that would cause it.
Learning objectives and key takeaways:
•Learn what an energy portfolio is, how this methodology differs from other energy management strategies, and why leading companies are adopting the portfolio approach
•Learn how to optimize future energy spend intelligently by deploying capital and directing procurement actions strategically across the entire portfolio for competitive advantage
•Learn how to inform key stakeholders on the materiality of energy management through treasury level risk analysis and compliance documentation related to energy spend
•How energy management decisions are viewed differently through the lens of Treasury, Finance, Sustainability and Energy and the methodology being used to tie these stakeholders together to evaluate capital investment decisions, risk management strategies, and renewable energy opportunities.
