Putting On-Site Energy to Work: How to Increase Your Organization’s Use of Renewables while Decreasing Reliability on the Grid
Making use of on-site power generation — that is, producing electric power at the site of a business rather than importing it from the grid — can offer a number of benefits to an organization, from increasing energy independence to reducing its reliability on the grid to improving its carbon footprint.
This panel discussion will give attendees a look at how on-site energy actually works and help answer questions that organizations may encounter as they pursue their own on-site energy initiatives.
How on-site energy can help you reduce the risk of utility pricing volatility;
The various benefits of different types of on-site energy, including solar, CHP, and wind;
How on-site energy can generate a significant amount of your facility’s power needs;
Whether on-site energy can save an organization money;
The role of microgrids and battery storage in the energy management mix;
Join experts from Kimberly-Clark, the Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD), the City University of New York, and West Monroe Partners as they offer an insider’s view of on-site energy as it relates to energy efficiency and management.
Why Isn’t Your DER Strategy Working Like You Planned?
Make More Money On Your Behind-The-Meter Energy Assets While Benefitting the Grid AND Your Community. The electric grid is amidst a transition to a cleaner and more dependable future. Today, the grid needs flexible resources – such as energy storage or back-up generation --- to enable that transition. Meanwhile, businesses like yours are looking to support their own resiliency needs and provide critical services to the grid necessary to achieving a reliable renewable energy future, while optimizing the economic value of their energy assets. The solution sounds simple: implement Distributed Energy Resources, lower energy costs, help the grid and improve sustainability. But for most, this is far more complex than it sounds. This is where we come in, combining artificial intelligence with CPower’s energy market wisdom. CPower has launched EnerWise Site Optimization --- a new service powered by artificial intelligence that optimizes and automates behind-the-meter DERs participation across on-bill savings and available grid services programs. EnerWise Site Optimization aligns the incentives of stakeholder groups across the value chain. The service supports energy users, the power grid and a clean energy future by optimizing commercial & industrial facilities’ energy assets and helping them achieve resiliency and ESG goals, while also providing grid-balancing services that are critical for the transition to renewable energy resources. It’s never too late to create or adjust a strategy that saves resources, drives better resilience and grid reliability, more cost savings and a predictable revenue stream.
