Distributed generation takes many forms, so creating a framework which can address corporate, social and economic stakeholders is essential. The available technologies, demand profiles, and location will play a big part in building the business case, as will environmental goals and concerns. Energy professionals prefer to have this analysis completed by unbiased independent specialists like Vervantis.
Low emission distributed generation technologies (solar, wind, biofuels) and those utilizing waste streams (landfill or manure), have a number of distinct differences when evaluating commercial viability, and suitability for use. We have a specialist team who identify the most appropriate technology to fit your business, evaluating project economics and funding options. All areas are investigated from supporting tax incentives, utility rebate programs or tariff offsets.
As an independent advisor, Vervantis give you all the facts on all the costs. We model distributed generation schemes over there life, allowing you to take make or buy decisions with confidence. Our project team is always on hand to further support or fully manage installation, liaising with developers and utility companies to ensure permitting and grid connections for on-time delivery.
The cheapest unit of energy is the one you don’t use. Vervantis engineers are ASHRAE, N.E.S.I and LEED certified and expert in uncovering behavioral and operational inefficiencies. Most level one and two audits uncover 10% in energy savings with half of these requiring no capital and the rest under 2-year payback with deeper audits uncovering in excess of 30% savings.
Often we have little control over when we use energy, so making it as cheap as possible when we do is the key driver for most supply chain professionals. Thanks to commercial scale battery storage, organizations can now store cheaper off-peak power for use during peak times, avoiding expensive network charges.
Electricity and Natural Gas are commodities that change in value constantly. To understand the best sourcing options, it helps having specialist knowledge matching business requirement to risk appetite precisely. Contracts are sourced in every competitive market and regulated utility rates are checked in the rest. Proprietary risk management solution SourceRisk™ delivers tailored purchasing strategies to larger consumers, valuing price risk daily and transacting flexibly (fixing & unfixing) in a unique supply agreement.
Sustainability reporting is streamlined with our agile and accredited financial-grade reporting software that underpins CSR programs (CDP, DJSI, GRI etc), and brings environmental strategies to life. Simplify management with supplier surveys, task assignment, automated follow-up and data collection. An independently verified process ensures data quality, and because we keep all emission factors up to date, you never have to worry about accuracy for audits.
