Our team collaborates with governments, utilities and industry to encourage more efficient use of energy and other resources in the industrial sector. We accomplish this by developing energy and demand management practices, standards, policies, analysis and technologies. We perform our work in the U.S. and throughout the world.
We demonstrate to industry that adoption of state-of-the-art energy and water management practices will increase competitiveness and sustainability; that developing standard measurement and verification methods allows market valuation of the resulting energy and water savings; and using the resulting market valuation will establish globally recognized shareholder value of energy and water management best practices.
