Having worked in more than 19,000 buildings across the country, we’ve seen enough to know that energy and water can’t be properly managed by tweaking thermostats and patching leaky pipes.
To effectively manage energy and water in buildings, owners and managers must proactively identify problems, implement solutions, and then monitor the results over time — a framework we call Find, Fix, Follow.
At Bright Power, this is how we approach energy and water management because it produces visible, long-lasting results.
The First Complete Energy Management Methodology
Intelligence-Driven Energy Management (IDEM) is a new paradigm for managing energy and water that is set to become a real estate industry best practice. Built on our Find, Fix, Follow framework, the IDEM methodology leverages advanced data analysis and dedicated expertise to inform and control energy management at a portfolio-level.
Bright Power delivers Intelligence-Driven Energy Management to clients through MoBIUS (Management of Building Information, Utilities, and Systems), a comprehensive managed-service offering that gives building owners and managers the ability to evaluate, prioritize, and monitor the performance of energy investments across an entire portfolio.
Many of our clients initially engage us for a discrete service, e.g. benchmarking, energy auditing, or energy procurement, however it usually doesn’t take too long for them to recognize the value of a more holistic, intelligence-driven approach.
One great example of this comes from Capitol Management Corporation, an owner and operator based in New Jersey, who knew they could do better, but lacked a clear roadmap for implementing energy improvements. They worked with Bright Power to first evaluate energy and water usage across their portfolio, then to eliminate the waste while making tenants more comfortable.
