    This is almost certainly the best book on energy management ever written. As an energy management practitioner for over 20 years I can state that Christopher Russell is absolutely spot-on with his diagnosis of the reasons why organisations fail to realise the very substantial financial benefits associated with energy efficiency. It is refreshing that he not only diagnoses the barriers, but offers a wide range of solutions - some innovative, some challenging, but all thoroughly practical. His focus on leadership, organisation, roles and financial business cases touches the core issues for successful energy management. He beautifully demonstrates the stupidity and value-destruction in the way many organisations approach energy efficiency. The challenge is not around technical solutions (we largely know how to save energy) but in getting these solutions implemented - in raising them to the top of the corporate agenda. The central challenge for business is how we can develop continuous... More > improvement process which will deliver savings year on year as we urgently decarbonise our economies to avoid catastrophic climate change. At just over 150 pages, this is a rather short but nevertheless very satisfying read. It is written well in an enjoyable style and with a logical progression of concepts. Don't let the size put you off - every page is huge value for money - especially now that it is available for a modest price via Lulu rather than the rather large cost I had to pay originally on Amanazon.co.uk :-( This book should be on the curriculum of every energy management course and I thoroughly recommend it to anyone interested in this topic. Niall Enright About me so that you might assess this review: I don't know the Author and my review is made purely on the basis of my professsional expertise. I am a Cambridge University graduate and a energy and sustainability practitioner in the UK who has worked on many very large-scale energy efficiency programs for the likes of BP, Unilever, Hilton International, Heinz and Rio Tinto. I have almost 25 year's battle-scars at the coal-face delivering savings and change in excess of 300 facilities in every continent. See www.sustainsuccess.co.uk. for more.< Less
