Working with Cenergistic®

You work with Cenergistic when you want to work with what you have. You work with Cenergistic when you want to redirect budget without buying more equipment. You work with Cenergistic when you want to save more than any other vendor or provider can deliver.
But what does that actually look like? What should you expect? Here’s the step-by-step process, and the time frame when everything is expected to happen.

Step 1: You Get Initial Building Audits: The First of Many

Month 1

After all the t’s are crossed and i’s are dotted, you begin getting onsite audits of your buildings from multiple Cenergistic engineering and energy experts. No matter the size of your organization, you will have multiple auditors on site (throughout your contract) to be thorough and conclusive.

These experts have seen it all, and their careers are all about energy. They know what to look for — not just because they’ve been doing this for decades, but because they just did yesterday, on a campus much like yours. They know the challenges schools, universities and municipalities are facing right now, and they can help you avoid underlying problems.

No matter how many experts we send, you never see an additional bill.

Energy Specialists help capture savings

Step 2: You Get One or More Permanent, Onsite Energy Specialists

Month 1-2

Energy management is a full-time job. That’s why Cenergistic hires energy specialists from your community — people who are invested in and committed to the people you serve — to be change agents.

Cenergistic hires energy specialists who show the ability to lead from within rather than leading from the front; people who can rally others to a common cause. The changes in your district, university, or municipality won’t just be thermostats and light switches — these changes will be at the core of your staff’s behavior. You need leaders capable of influencing that behavior.

These energy specialists are also trained in reviewing more than 1,200 areas for energy savings, so that no stone is left unturned as you drive down your energy usage.

Step 3: Meet Your Energy Specialist(s)

Month 2-3

You will meet the person who is on the front lines in your buildings. You might not see much of them — they work behind the scenes and after hours. Their goal is to improve the education and work environment, so they do everything they can to not interrupt daily activities.

Sometimes staff get into the thick of their daily work and realize that they haven’t seen the energy specialists around. They aren’t sure if they’ve noticed any kind of a difference, and so they wonder if the energy specialists are making a difference. That sounds negative — but it’s actually very positive. If your students and staff don’t notice a difference, then we’re doing our job. Because we’re helping your organization use exactly what it needs…and not a penny more.

Your Technology Setup:

A custom combination of any or all of these tools:
  • GreenX® Technology
  • GreenX Predict® and Simulate® Tools
  • Cenergistic Energy Specialists
  • Additional Engineering
  • Measurement and Verification via EnergyCAP®

Step 4: You Get Technology

Month 3-4

You will also hear from Cenergistic about loading your energy management system data for each building into Cenergistic’s proprietary software. This technology is built to analyze and pinpoint energy savings opportunities in real time. This is similar to the technology that many energy savings companies (ESCOs) sell…without providing the onsite manpower to actually capture each savings opportunity. But with Cenergistic, it’s just one part of a much more synchronized whole.

This technology will inform and complement the hundreds of physical audits performed by the energy specialist. Then you receive regular reports about energy consumption based on technology…and your energy bills.

Step 5: You Get Regular Reports

Month 4+

You will designate an executive sponsor, so you are never disconnected from the day-to-day work of energy savings. Now that the foundation is set, and your energy specialist is fully engaged, you’re going to get regular monthly reports about energy usage and trends in comparison to the base year…as well as how much you’re saving.

At the beginning, your energy specialist will be immersed in training. As they learn more, they do more. The first several months of your work with Cenergistic are exciting and full of changes.
