The aim of this study was to demonstrate and analyze the energy management practices in the cement industries of Bangladesh. The outcome of this study shows that there are some barriers in energy management and energy efficiency practices; Lack of staff consciousness, insufficient attention from government and bureaucratic intricacy are most significant among them. On the contrary, the most dominant drivers of energy management are risk of high energy prices in the future, highly motivated employee and high demand from consumer and Non-Government Organizations. According to the study, around 4–5% of energy efficiency can be enhanced with the assistance of energy management practices in cement industries. However, many industries are unaware of the idea of energy service companies as there is a lack of information about such company, and deficit of competent human resources in the energy management sector.
