By Dailey Tipton

The historical method of energy management was merely a function of energy spend and cost avoidance. In today’s economy, the demands for sustainability and energy management far outreach yesterday’s limited approach and include a myriad of aspects that are intermingled across the operations.

As energy markets evolve, new opportunities to create value have immerged.  These include:

  • Energy efficiency
  • Renewable energy
  • Local generation
  • Green energy purchasing
  • Contract hedging
  • Regulatory requirements
  • Sustainability goals
  • And more!

The Energy Market Today

Over the past few years, there have been significant changes in energy markets that materially impact organizations’ energy strategies and decision-making processes. New energy conservation technologies, lower prices for renewable energy, and strict efficiency legislation in major cities across the US are forcing change.

Energy offerings have evolved to meet these challenges, but there is no “one-size fits all” solution. There must be a holistic approach to consider all the available technologies, market opportunities (including state and regional programs), green energy requirements, and the financial impacts of energy spend and efficiency projects.

Our Solution

Considering the needs of our clients, we have introduced an offering that can deliver a specific scope of services, customized to a clients’ goals and budget, while still allowing opportunities for continuous improvement and operational scale. Sustainable Energy Management is made up of a wide range of components that are tailored to the specific requirements of the customer.  Sustainable Energy Management will significantly increase your organization’s overall profitability while accomplishing your sustainability goals. This is accomplished by determining how your organization will define its desired direction and implementation of the following:

  • Energy advisory services strategies
  • Energy supply risk management and services for on-site/off-site green/brown supply
  • On-site/off-site renewable development projects
  • Energy supply services for on-site/off-site green/brown supply
  • On-site/off-site renewable development projects
  • Peak load management and demand management
  • Distributed energy resources (DER)
  • Integrated data management across the portfolio to include energy data, ESG data and M&V for efficiency
  • Portfolio-wide energy efficiency projects and energy conservation management
  • Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) data required for reporting
  • Employee engagement and training

There may be further consideration to investigate other desired energy programs or projects, but the list above can drive the strategy conversation and define the “scope” of a companies desired outcome.

When discussing the Sustainability Energy Management package with clients, we will evaluate a client’s unique position to determine which pieces of the package are the most cost-effective and relevant to the client’s needs.  As an example, a manufacturing client defined a national efficiency audit program that included, on-site renewable definition, cost reductions for efficiency projects with strong ROI, and definition of procurement practices that allow long term contracts as well as green procurement. The entire program package will be wrapped into our data management platform to track the efficiency projects and spend management.

How can an organization become efficient, manage energy spend, and meet its sustainability goals and requirements?

By defining a Sustainable Energy Management strategy that fits the goals of the organization with measured impacts and results.
