SPOKANE, Wash. — Ecova, an energy and sustainability management company, has announced a newly upgraded service designed to provide multi-site commercial and industrial companies with greater visibility into their energy and water resource management performance. According to Ecova, the Resource Benchmarking Report will help companies examine their programs and results across their building portfolio and at the site level, and drive greater improvements in their energy management efforts.

“Ecova has provided internal energy benchmarking for our clients' buildings since 2007, and is the top partner in automated benchmarking for Energy Star’s Portfolio Manager, supporting more than 40,000 buildings a month,” said Jeff Heggedahl, CEO, Ecova. “That experience, coupled with our Big Data Warehouse, which contains over 2.5 billion points of energy data from more than 700,000 facilities, guided us as we developed the new Resource Benchmarking Report. We know that timely energy trend analysis, presented in a clear and simple format, lets clients focus on taking action to improve energy performance.”

Understanding costs drivers, comparing consumption year over year, and identifying the right facilities for energy efficiency efforts are some of the features delivered in this new report, said the company. Once facilities are targeted and prioritized for energy efficiency projects, Ecova’s team of energy managers help to identify and implement the right energy efficiency measures to drive down resource consumption.

“At Walgreens, we operate more than 8,000 stores and serve 6 million customers every day in diverse locations across the United States. It is imperative that all of our stores operate efficiently without sacrificing customer comfort,” said Mike Colwell, manager, Energy & Utilities, Walgreens. “We rely on Ecova’s Resource Benchmarking Report to provide us with a clear overview of our entire energy portfolio and give us flexibility with features like mapping to drill down to specific regions or locations. This report ensures that we are able to identify outliers and understand how our energy efficiency efforts compare, directing us to the best way to solve many of our energy management challenges.”
