Step 6: Measure Performance and Quantify Results
Evaluate the progress made by including formal review processes that compare the outcomes with the projected goals. The evaluation results and information gathered will assist in creating new goals, identifying best practices, and setting new performance goals.
If applicable, the community should review energy use and cost data to measure accomplishments. Energy performance should be compared to baseline information. Measure your results and reward individuals and teams for accomplishments. Document savings opportunities as well as non-quantifiable benefits that can be leveraged for future initiatives.
Celebrate your accomplishments with your community.
