Sometimes lack of authority and complex decision chain also contribute to this barrier. These barriers are presented below. 2.1.3. (A) Power Lack of power among EE decision-makers (e.g., the energy controllers), is often put forth as an explanatory variable for the “gap”. The low importance of energy management within organizations leads
Future costs are cash expense that will be occurring in the future due to a potential decision made. The avoidable costs are these costs related to decision making that if you decide not to implement it and you can decide to avoid. Opportunity costs are costs of measuring the chance of sacrificing when choosing an action plan requires that an alternative to be abandoned. The cash inflows that are sacrificed due to specific management decisions. Incremental cost also known as differential costs.
It is highly effective way to fight against many different issues as environmental, economical and so. Now great attention is given to the practical aspects of energy efficiency and researches are being conducted to developed more energy efficient appliances and systems. This is evolution to the use of energy and most of the expectations are being kept with it to be helpful in dealing with great many issues whilst saving, costs, resources, efforts and so. It must also be understood that future time will be more challenging and economical, environmental difficulties will be stronger and greater in number, so in order to respond them effectively the method and concepts of energy efficiency be
Cost risk analysis in construction projects N.Hari Raghavan, M.TECH; C.Venkatasubramanian, Ph.D. Abstract Cost, time, risks and availability of funds are the key factors in any construction project. Project managers are prone to face various risk factors that affect project cost and time duration of the project. This paper concentrates on the effect of risks on the overall cost of the construction projects. Questionnaire was prepared considering various risk factors that are associated with construction process. Risk factors were identified by conducting in person interviews with project managers and technical experts.
Information costs also include uncertainty about the future; that is the limited knowledge of the outcome of a specific decision. The corn farmer might be able to know the current prices of corn on the market, whereas he or she knows little about the prices of corn in three or six month after the current season ends. Just like information about the future is costly (uncertainty), so it is with information about the past. Information about the past performance of a resource is called the risk of the resource. If I want to book a plane ticket with a particular airline company, I would most likely want to know the accident history, in other words the flying risk of that particular company.
Introduction. One of the crucial problems that world facing is energy use and energy efficiency is the main solution for this issue. As Juodis (2009) mentioned, term energy efficiency has two meaning, namely minimal consumption of energy and cost-effective energy use which is smallest amount of energy consumption to keep convenient hygiene conditions in a building. Energy efficient construction should be compulsory in Kazakhstan. Such a change would significantly reduce the energy consumption of the country and lead to decrease in consumer expenditure.
They think that markets ought to not be permitted to benefit while causing potential hurt to the environment by utilizing up all accessible assets and contaminating the planet. One of the most vital characteristics of a advertise economy, also called a free venture economy, is the part of a limited government. Most economic choices are made by buyers and dealers, not the government. A competitive market economy advances the productive utilize of its resources. It is a self-regulating and self-adjusting economy.
The index is a ratio between the environmental variables and the financial variables (Sturm, et. al., 2004) and can be shown as: Environmental influence/ Product or service value (as presented in formula 2 above) We can therefore see that if we want to increase eco-efficiency, we can accomplish this by providing more values with a decrease in the environmental influence or resource consumed for the evaluated product or service. For example the fuel consumption of a car expressed in kilometers per liters of used fuel, this could be used to measure the fuel efficiency of the
Risk will rises in project estimation due to the firm that is unable to forecast of the existence. Consequently, the potential future events with inevitability cannot make any precise prediction about the cash flows. The uncertain economic conditions are the sources of uncertainty in the cash flows. Risk exists on account of the inability of the firm to make perfect forecasts of cash flows. The capital budgeting suggestions are not grounded on impeccable estimation of costs and revenues.
