In addition to our comprehensive LED lighting services and products, Advanced Facilities Solutions provides a management service called the Energy Intelligence Suite. Utility procurement options and regulations rapidly change across regulated and deregulated markets. The Energy Intelligence Suite arms your organization with the data it needs to benefit from data driven energy management and procurement strategies. We assign a “live” energy manager to monitor your accounts.
Bill auditing is labor intensive and, in most cases, just does not get done. The Energy Intelligence Suite allows you to automate this process so you can “Set It and Forget It.”
Eliminating manual invoice handling by automating invoice processing is the first step.
Part of the automation includes automatic audits for all invoices in the system.
Data from the invoices supports reporting and analytics through all levels of your organization.
Benchmark facilities for internal reporting (key performance indicators) or to comply with “Benchmark Ordinances” through our direct API with DOE’s ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager.
A data driven utility procurement strategy is established for all electricity and natural gas accounts.
We will design a proposal based on the data from your invoices and accounts outlining the scope of our service. Typical implementations take 30 to 90 days depending on the number of accounts with $0 out of pocket expense.
AFS believes that the agriculture industry, including food production and processing, can greatly benefit from modern energy systems. We can audit your farm or other facility and realize products and solutions to benefit you, including solar energy, LED, and IoT devices.
For businesses that are interested in green energy but lack the ability or desire to produce it onsite, community solar is an excellent resource. In this system, clean energy is produced by a local solar farm, then transferred to the business through the local grid. The business then enjoys the financial benefits of using solar energy without having to set up the infrastructure onsite.
Easily and accurately monitor utility bills, energy and emissions data and more using our data management service. AFS helps to manage the data so you can keep an eye on any potential problem areas in your energy use.
As your operation demands more power, it risks overwhelming the grid and causing a blackout. AFS will develop a demand response management plan suited to your needs that ensures your energy demand does not exceed your usage.
