Jimmy Jia

You can build remarkable company value

while reducing energy consumption.

Unmask hidden carbon costs to deliver strategic energy use and achieve higher company value.


Jimmy works with boards, executives, and policy makers to quantify energy risks, innovations and opportunities for improved capital deployment of energy and infrastructure assets.

For over a decade, he has challenged executives in retail, non-profits, higher education, healthcare and utilities to examine their energy use practices. The results are that organizations save money, reduce exposure to volatile pricing, and improve competitive advantage.

Strategy Workshops

The benefits go far beyond a workshop

  • Fast moving 6-hour workshop

  • Learn key energy factors improving value

  • Exemplary case studies

  • Engage cross-functional discussions

  • Rules, roles and tools for common goals

  • Clear next steps for implementation

Practically speaking, a single workshop will not instantly result in a 100% efficient, carbon neutral company with increased value. But it will help you and your team challenge current practices and realize the importance of aligning global company goals and performance metrics based on strategically vetted initiatives.

Most importantly, you’ll see that creating company-wide Energy-As-Strategy ensures everyone is on the same page to maximize company value.

“If you cry ‘Forward!’ you must be sure to make clear the direction

in which to go. Don’t you see that if you fail to do that and simply call out

the word to a monk and a revolutionary, they will go in precisely

opposite directions” —Anton Chekov

Misalignment is jeopardizing your company’s value

Unsystematic selection of efficiency measures may be undermining your potential to excel. Without solid metrics and clear company priorities the projects providing maximum benefit are not identified. Misalignment with company goals may already be costing you a great deal.
