The effort to renew 2009’s Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant (EECBG) Program got a boost recently when it was announced that the LIFT America Act, introduced to the House Committee on Energy & Commerce on March 11, includes $17.5 billion in EECBG funding.
Public and private organizations across North America are enacting energy reduction directives, resolving to reduce energy consumption and GHG emissions by a goal percentage within a defined time period.
In January 2019, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf signed Executive Order 2019-01, titled “Commonwealth Leadership in Addressing Climate Change and Promoting Energy Conservation and Sustainable Governance.”
We are pleased to announce that our EnergyCAP® energy management information solution (EMIS) has been granted an Authorization to Operate (ATO) under the U.S. Government’s FedRAMP program and is now an authorized participant in the FedRAMP Marketplace.
The need for EnergyCAP user training continues. Unfortunately, so does the ban on in-person training sessions and conferences. That’s why I’m issuing this reminder about EnergyCAP Academy, a comprehensive online training program that we originally announced back in June:
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.”
Benchmarking your buildings thru ENERGY STAR’s Portfolio Manager website is an energy management best practice. Not only does a favorable building rating promote energy management success, but it can deliver fiscal advantages.
“Energy management decisions should be based on data that is comprehensive, efficiently obtained, easy to analyze, and communicated widely. And selecting the right energy management information system (EMIS) and vendor is critical to meeting those goals.”
Over our 40-year history, we have seen or heard about scenarios where an EMIS vendor promises to deliver comprehensive functionality, only to fail to meet the customer’s requirements during the implementation stage. The solution (and the price) might have looked appealing at first glance,
Bithgroup Technologies, a consulting firm based in Baltimore, MD, has used EnergyCAP as the foundation of their Energy Information Services operation since 2007. They have processed hundreds of thousands of utility bills through energy auditing software. Corey Culbreath, Bithgroup’s hands-on Director of Energy Information Services, recently shared how he identified a major client billing problem without having to run a single EnergyCAP report. He found the problem while performing the eyeball test—a quick visual review of customer data via EnergyCAP’s exclusive PowerView™ charts.
In a recent EnergyCAP-hosted webinar, Casey Keyser, Senior Energy Manager, described how Oklahoma State University’s “culture of conservation” has produced energy savings in excess of $38 million over a 13-year period.
