New cities can grow up and bring their development closer to regions characterized by more efficient in the terms of the energy use. This requires a change in human behaviour.

  • Energy should be considered a production factor as important as labour, capital and raw materials;
  • Managing energy is important as managing human, financial or other resources;
  • Should be included in the first stage of project development, the energy management and planning, choosing a rational use of energy as well as efficient production systems. However, it does not mean that energy management actions can not be complemented by others. Energy management is an ongoing and indispensable process;
  • Energy management should be based on the knowledge of consumer systems, by means a real-time consumption monitoring, by facility/building, elaboration of periodic energy audits and action plans, in order to reduce the energy consumption;
  • Energy management should lead, on a continuous basis, to the increasingly rational and efficient use of energy.
