Ecova gives our clients more opportunities for savings by providing insight and analysis into costs across all categories: energy, water, waste, telecom and lease. With this comprehensive data, businesses and utilities can better pinpoint, fund and extend efficiency programs to more sites and more customers, making better use of capital, equipment, facilities and people.
Ecova identified more than $1.6 billion in savings for commercial and industrial clients across North America in the last two years.
Energy is costly for U.S. businesses and utilities. The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that commercial facilities account for up to 50 percent of electricity use in the U.S., nearly 30 percent of which is wasted through controllable inefficiencies.
Ecova serves as an extended arm of in-house energy and resource management
, guiding clients in developing comprehensive strategies for resource savings while connecting them with utility funding for efficiency projects.
Our detailed insight into over 25,000 MW of U.S. electricity demand recently revealed comparative industry trends showing that energy consumption per square foot declined by an average of 8.8 percent between 2008 and 2012.
