Nov. 20, 2013: Software Lets Users Define Energy-, Emissions- and Cost-Reduction Goals
Goals Can Be Set Per Square-Foot, Unit of Production, Revenue, or Employee
The major feature enhancements of this release — comprising normalized goal setting and the normalized tracking of those goals — will allow companies and institutions to analyze their entire supply chains and achieve more precise energy efficiency and cost savings, said the company. For example, a retail company can now set a goal of reducing energy resource utilization, emissions, or cost on a square-foot basis. Other possible normalizations include per unit of production, revenue, or employee. In addition, organizations can customize their own through the EnergyPoints platform.
Energy Points provides integrated source-to-site energy analytics through an enterprise software as a service (SaaS) platform, which measures “behind the utility meter” for electricity, fuels, water, waste, and transportation. The platform converts each of these to an EnergyPoint® (EP), which is equivalent to a gallon of gasoline, and energy per gallon (EPG), which is comparable to the MPG of a car. As a big data solution for maximizing enterprise energy productivity, the EnergyPoints platform facilitates benchmarking, evaluating projects, managing the risk of changing energy systems and regulations, communicating to stakeholders, and supporting required disclosures.
“It is industry standard to capture resource pricing and site consumption to identify building outliers that are at risk,” said Bill Rebozo, vice president of product development at Energy Points. “What makes Energy Points unique, however, is the fact that we measure the source energy required to produce those resources to identify resource outliers that are at risk. Simultaneously measuring and managing price, site, and resource risk maximizes both short- and long-term financial and environmental gains captured through strategic resource planning. Furthermore, normalizing these measurements based on building attributes, production volumes, or corporate KPIs provides insight from the boiler room to the boardroom that our clients love and can’t find anywhere else.”
