how we're different: unique bundling

Our unique bundling of services (software, consulting, and engineering) allows you to save time, reduce energy, and mitigate costs.

We believe energy is an operating cost that can be measured and managed. Let's join forces to create a proactive energy plan for your organization.

  • Utility Data Collection & Reporting

    Through our software platform we will collect and consolidate all of your utility bills (electric, natural gas, water) onto our web based dashboard (or you can access it via our API!). The data will be compiled into simple, singular monthly reports in order to quickly educate you on how your building(s) is performing. Historical performance is compared with current performance normalizing consumption, cost, weather, and number of billing days.

  • Sustainability Reporting

    Our software represents a singular platform for your organization to track and share a variety of sustainability metrics. From recycling and composting, to VOC's of air emissions, we make it easy to measure and manage the aspects of your organization that impact the broader community. Now, you can seamlessly share your sustainability reports with clients, vendors, suppliers, team members, and shareholders.

  • Benchmarking

    Our software is an Energy Star Partner and automatically integrates with Portfolio Manager, the EPA's online energy management and tracking tool. After benchmarking your building, some buildings will be eligible to receive a 1-100 Energy Star Score. Buildings with an Energy Star Score of 75 or greater may apply for the Energy Star Certificate.

  • Document Storage

    In addition to your utility bills, we allow the storage of any document of your choosing as it relates to energy and sustainability management. Does your organization currently have internal spreadsheets, Word docs, and PDFs that you use to track various metrics? With our solution, you can easily house it all in one place and turn your de-centralized data into meaningful information.

 
 
  • Utility Rate Analysis

    Foresight Energy Engineers and Utility Experts will evaluate your organization’s electric and natural gas rate (tariff) structures. After an in-depth analysis of various rates, we will deliver a detailed report of our findings, highlighting the pros and/or cons of what it would mean for your building to be on a different rate. Our report will include recommendations for future forecasting and planning.

  • Procurement Consultation

    Our Energy Procurement team will conduct a holistic analysis of how your organization buys energy, helping you understand what your purchasing options are in both the electricity and natrual gas markets. We will partner with you in areas such as contract review, writing requests for proposal, supplier vetting, and serving as your advocate to utility providers.

  • Utility Rebate Program Reporting

    Utility incentive programs change often. Every quarter, our team provides a detailed report of your utility provider’s incentive (rebate) program. Understanding when rebates have changed will allow your organization to capitalize on increased incentives, and understanding a specific rebate’s timeframe will empower you to capitalize on the incentive before it expires.

  • Utility Rebate Identification and Reporting

    When your organization is considering a construction or maintenance project, our team will research to determine if the project qualifies for a utility incentive. In the event that it does, we will work with you to optimize the potential incentive and coordinate all necessary paperwork with your utility provider.

  • Federal Tax Incentive Identification and Coordination

    When your organization is considering a construction or maintenance project, our team of experts will research to determine if the project qualifies for any Federal Tax Incentives. In the event that it does, we will work with your tax preparers and help coordinate the necessary paperwork to receive the incentive.

 
 
  • Facility Energy Audit

    A Foresight energy engineer will conduct an on-site energy audit at your facility. We will evaluate the energy consuming systems in your building such as lighting, motors, HVAC, compressed air, control systems, water and building envelope related systems. A report will be created as a working document, and a strategic energy plan will be formed. This plan will include a prioritized list of energy efficiency opportunities we identify, and our recommended implementation plan.

  • Maintenance and Operational Equipment Assessments

    Using state of the art thermal imaging cameras, our technical team will visually inspect and evaluate your electrical, HVAC, and compressed air equipment. A report will be issued outlining maintenance recommendations and life cycle analysis.

  • Project Management

    Our Foresight Engineers and Project Managers have a long history of implementing contracting projects. If your organization has the desire to execute a project and needs assistance managing it, let's partner to get the job done. From writing the scope of work and managing the bid process, to overseeing contractors and acting as your liaison, we are available to be an extension of your team whenever necessary.

  • Technology and Vendor Qualification

    Our team and expertise represents an unbiased stance on all things technology, manufacturer, installer and supplier related. We work diligently to learn your organization’s values, budgets, timelines and goals, and with this in mind, can effectively vet prospective technologies and vendors on your behalf. You no longer have to feel alone when asking, “Is this the best fit for me?” Our team is here to help educate and provide alternative options for you based on your needs.

  • Resource Mapping (Sub-Metering)

    Have you ever wondered which areas of your facility consume the most energy? Have you ever asked which of your production lines/equipment operates the most energy efficiently? Our team can help you answer these questions by metering equipment either temporarily or permanently. We will analyze the data, empowering you to make informed decisions about your building operations. Creating a map of where your energy resources are being consumed is a powerful way to fine-tune your operating habits.

  • Retro-Commissioning and Controls Optimization

    More often than not, your building over time will need a tune up. Our team will assess the performance of the systems and equipment in your building to ensure that things are operating correctly with energy efficiency in mind. We will not only review and report on your building controls, but will also help you optimize them. From scheduling temperature set points to aligning sequencing operations, we will “tune up” your building to ensure you are not wasting money.
