Our Process

Why it works   


 

Our innovative process reverses the out-of-date practice of pushing products and instead offering a robust solution with monetary gains. We start with a deep evaluation of the monetary margin between the way a facility currently uses electricity and new ways to leverage the utility rate structure. We then apply a wealth of energy solutions, product knowledge and software programming skill to design a non-biased ADMS (Advanced Demand Management System) package to beat the utility structure and achieve the desired payback.

Our Process   

DETERMINE OPPORTUNITY TO LEVERAGE UTILITY STRUCTURE


Our experts combine historic energy usage records from your facility with deep research into the energy market and billing structures, detailed site surveys, and the building operations and schedules. During the research phase, we use the latest technology available to visualize your energy usage in real-time and create an energy usage profile that will be used to build our energy savings algorithms.



BUILD PROFIT ALGORITHM


We use the information from our in-depth research to engineer a wide range of energy efficiency improvements and to tailor our demand response algorithms. Using specialized software, we create, refine, and test proprietary system control hierarchies to mitigate energy demand spikes while preserving overall system efficiency and comfort. These control systems are designed in parallel with on-site generation such as solar power to create our demand management package.



Engineer Advanced Demand Management System (ADMS)


“Smart Solar” (solar power linked to automation) is the backbone of our ADMS package. We carefully engineer a solar array based on measured daily load profiles, and current and future energy load estimates. This array drives down the baseline demand of the building at peak times, while our constantly “thinking” automation controls evaluate changing conditions, monitor the solar output, and reduce usage spikes. This dual attack of demand is what makes our solutions unique to the industry and valuable to the end user.



Engineering, Procurement, & Construction (EPC)


Our holistic approach to system design allows us to plan and oversee every step of the product selection, construction, installation, and maintenance process, from the initial survey to the final on-site inspections. Quality assurance during the design phase and quality control during the construction phase is guaranteed by keeping the entire EPC process in-house. EnergyLink also provides continued monitoring and long-term support to ensure that your investment is protected.

Optional   

Performance-Based Financing


EnergyLink is an energy service company (ESCO) that can integrate financing based on energy savings into the project’s design, installation and operational elements. We can craft a custom energy savings performance contract, which is an alternative financing mechanism that uses a portion of your profit from energy savings to pay for the investment over time. This works in multiple ways – guaranteeing performance, mitigating technical risks, and providing a financial guarantee to project lenders that the energy savings generated over time will cover the investment exposure. Our demand reduction and efficiency projects are a win for everyone involved - the client, the investor and the utility company. We will gladly assist the customer in understanding all of the available financing options.
