EES Solutions: Smarts, Service, Software, and Stuff
Is there a single “right way” to achieve energy efficiency? No. There are many paths to effective energy efficiency. What path you take depends on a lot of factors. We strive to identify effective solutions and help our clients implement them in ways that work with their own unique circumstances. Some organizations want to use in-house resources as much as possible. For others, it makes sense to have outside resources engaged to do the work. It is as much a matter of organizational culture as it is having the know-how to get things done. We strive to support both approaches through our four S’s: Smarts, Services, Software, and Stuff.
When we say “smarts”, we refer to the training programs that we have developed to help you and your staff come up to speed on the choices available. We help you to identify the “low-hanging fruit” as well as get prepared for the requirements of tomorrow. During the training, we share the best practices that we have identified and help you find the ones that will work best for you. You’ll have the smarts and be able to move forward to identify and implement your energy efficiency goals.
We can help you find the right service providers to get the work done. In some cases, that will mean our own in-house staff. But we don’t pretend to be experts on everything. When and where it makes sense, we will refer you to our third-party partners. When we make such a referral, you can know that we have searched for the best possible service providers so that you can be confident in their capabilities. How do we know? Just ask us. We are happy to share our criteria and let you know why we have chosen one set of providers over another.
Computers have changed the world. Whether this has been a good thing or not, we have a background in computer software and so are always on the lookout for ways that software can make a difference in the world of energy efficiency. As with everything we do, you can be assured that we pick software that works the best for the task at hand. Or we won’t recommend it.
For computer power management, we have chosen to resell Faronics Power Save. To find out why, see our Faronics Power Save information page.
By "stuff" we mean hardware for measuring energy usage.
Why? Two reasons: first, measuring allows comparisons to industry benchmarks to see how much variances exists between your organization, a "typical" organization, and highly-efficient organizations.
Before implementing any efficiency measures, it helps to make sure there is, in fact, room for improvement.
The second reason we measure is to demonstrate that real progress has been made.
These snapshots of our organization's energy usage means that you can feel confident that your organization -- and your environment -- both receive real benefits.
This is so much of a "win-win" that we can't help but love what we do.
And we expect that you'll love what we can do for you as well.
