Welcome to my blog series, #5 of 5, on Effective Energy Management from Home. If you haven’t read Blogs #1, #2, #3, and #4, I recommend you give them a quick read first.
You’re a home-bound Energy Manager. How can you spend your time productively? One good use of your time is to do the benchmarking and analysis tasks that you’ve had on your action list but haven’t gotten around to yet,
Hello friends and colleagues, and welcome to a new COVID-19 reality unimaginable only a few weeks ago. It is the sincere desire of everyone here at EnergyCAP that you and your loved ones are safe and healthy.
The way developers talk about them, APIs can sound like the solution to all our troubles. “You could do that a lot faster if you used the API.” “You know, if you want EnergyCAP to talk to the Asset Management Platform, we can use their API.” “If that’s something you need to do every day, we should just code something up in the API.”
Welcome to 2020, the year in which way too many marketing campaigns will feature at least one obligatory reference to perfect vision. So, let’s get ours out of the way now.
Our vision for 2020 is clear, and we’re excited about what we have in store for EnergyCAP users over the next 12 months. Some are improvements to existing offerings, and others reflect an expert-level foresight that can only come from 40 years of industry experience.
Does your university or campus-based organization struggle to obtain detailed energy information for individual buildings? Are you challenged by the complexity of internal energy use & cost allocations (a.k.a., chargebacks)?
Utility bill auditing and processing just got a whole lot easier.
On November 9, 2016, I published a blog article titled, “Improving Utility Bill Auditing.” The article addressed a comment that we hear time and time again during initial conversations with prospective customers: “We know we should check our utility bills more closely, but we don’t have a system in place to do that.” I then outlined how our EnergyCAP software-based solution helps organizations overcome the challenges of utility bill processing and bill validation before they are paid.
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 the application. 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.
So much data, so little time. An all-too-common scenario for energy managers.
Utility bills arrive like clockwork (you hope) every month by the dozens or hundreds. Each one contains numerous line items, providing useful details about facility energy consumption and cost. Ideally, that valuable information is being tracked in EnergyCAP, where it’s readily available for analysis.
ENERGY STAR® is the nation’s most widely used and recognized energy reporting and benchmarking system, but it is seldom considered to be a method of measurement and verification (M&V) of savings. EnergyCAP, Inc.’s CEO, Steve Heinz, recently led a study
In a perfect world, all of your utility meters would trip their odometer readings at 12:00 a.m. on the first day of every calendar month, all your utility bills would reflect the energy you used for precisely that period, and all planes and trains would run on time. Your relationship with your energy data would be perfect, and you wouldn’t need dating rules!
Before we get started on today’s topic, let me share some exciting news regarding a company reorganization here at EnergyCAP. Don’t panic, it’s nothing dramatic or upcoming—just a part of our vision for 2016: “Getting to the Next Level.”
As a company, we’ve taken a good look at where we are and where we want to go in pursuit of our company purpose,
