BPO – Business Process Outsourcing – has been on the rise for years. The outsourcing of back office services that are not core competencies of the organization, yet require high skill level, is particularly attractive.
Organizations that are new to using EnergyCAP often find that the enhanced visibility into their utility bills highlights opportunities for quick monetary savings. One example of low hanging, money-saving fruit is
A recent article titled, From the Ground Up: Energy Resilience Begins With Our Buildings, published by Penn State News, stated that buildings “consume about 40% of the energy we use in the United States… and a full 70% of all electricity.” In the same article, James Freihaut, Professor of Architectural Engineering at Penn State, commented, “If we want to conserve energy and stop global warning, we’ve got to make the buildings a lot better.”
Everyone whose job includes utility bill auditing and processing knows audit challenges all too well. The bane of analysts everywhere is false positives—audit results that point to a problem but after investigation are found to be groundless.

Congratulations! Thanks to your effective energy management and building operations practices, you’ve achieved two months of “flatlining” your buildings. As proven by your smart meter data, effective shutdowns of high daily “occupied” electric loads have been flatlined, the only bumps being slightly higher nighttime security lighting loads.
