The Strategic Energy Plan
When curating a short-term and long-term energy strategy constructing a clear and concise roadmap, achieving energy goals becomes critical. As a trusted energy advisor, the Helios Energy™ Team works directly with clients to identify the ‘as is’ state of energy management and consumption, then craft a step-by-step strategy to reaching all desired energy goals.
What does a Strategic Energy Plan (SEP) involve? When we implement our approach for our clients, we first analyze their facilities’ consumption and usage levels, and then design and implement energy management and energy efficiency solutions to reduce current consumption. We choose the technologies that will best fit your facility’s needs. These technologies include energy measurement and remote access control systems, LED lighting, and energy efficient HVAC units. Once we drive down energy consumption levels with these solutions, we can then implement clean energy generation and storage solutions to meet the new, ‘right-sized’ level of energy consumption for optimal working conditions. These solutions include solar PV arrays, wind technologies, and battery systems.
The development of a Strategic Energy Plan occurs following extensive planning, auditing, and analysis. The Helios Team initiates analysis with a look at current energy technologies and a retrospective, longitudinal examination of energy utilization. In addition, if the facility is powered all or in part by fossil fuels, the Team utilizes energy forecasting to pinpoint the future availability of those sources, and compare continued use with a transition to energy efficient and clean energy technologies.
What makes the Helios approach to SEPs unique? We develop a Strategic Energy Plan that addresses both current and future energy needs, and recommends the implementation of technology strategies that are tailored specifically to meet those needs. Our plan revolves entirely around our client’s goals, which allows us the freedom to procure only the most appropriate, specific energy solutions. With this, all energy planning, solutions, and servicing can be operationalized with Helios, rather than across multiple vendors.
