  • Quickly gauge a facility’s energy performance using benchmarking, as well as evaluate energy costs and savings, GHG reductions and financial viability
  • Determine the energy production and savings potential for any location in the world by using Archetypes
  • Verify the performance of implemented projects and find opportunities for further energy improvements
