"Strategic Planning” is all about setting goals and determining what actions and resources are needed to achieve these goals. Nonetheless, many (business) plans never materialize due to the fact that the required resources are not allocated / mobilized. Before anything happens we nevertheless create "awareness" as to where the opportunities lie whereby this is done by creating "baseline" scenarios laying out "business as usual" compared to what can be achieved when "monetizing waste".
• Strategy Energy Planning.
The oil sector is very much focused on registering and reporting production volumes but seldom do they register and report the potential to "monetizing waste". POWER LATIN AMERICA has designed the tools to not only create this awareness but also identify and quantify the “waste” opportunities (energy efficiency opportunities).
i) Energy Matrix (Baseline).
ii) Value and Risk Scan / Analysis.
iii) Efficiency Potential.
iv) Business Case / Project Design.
• Business Plan / Business Case.
In this world opportunities need to be translated into a language and road maps that opens up the door to "limited resources" which is why developing a credible Business Plan / Business Case is essential. To the contrary ideas simply will never translate into clear deliverables.
i) Scope of Work.
ii) Project Budget / Resources.
iii) Time Schedule.
iv) Feasibility Study.
v) Risk and Sensitivity Analysis.
vi) Road Map.
• Project Conceptual Design.
An Energy Efficiency Business Plan / Case needs to be sustained by a conceptual design which then forms the foundation fora credible scope of work and project budget. After that is always important to make sure the Business Case withstands a serious "sanity check" since far to often projects fail due to them not have undergone a serious "stress test" (as it often goes, "the wishes are the father to all thoughts" or, call them Business Plans).
• WHAT IF / SANITY CHECK (Devil’s Advocate Analysis - DAA).
• Conceptual Design.
i) Block Diagrams.
ii) Process Flow Diagrams.
iii) Design Criteria.
• Project development structure.
Once you have a Business Plan / Case it is important to structure the project funding, contracting and implementation process.
i) Suppliers Analysis.
ii) Project Structure / Model.
iii) Project Funding Structure.
iv) Project Contract Documentation.
