Energy as a Service (EaaS)

The evolution toward a decentralized, more sustainable energy grid has unleashed new possibilities for large energy users with onsite generation assets. These opportunities include driving revenue without investing additional capital or disrupting normal operations. With the holistic energy market expertise provided by EaaS solutions, customers transform their backup power assets into revenue-generating assets. By analyzing patterns on the grid, utility monitoring software predicts when power demands will burden the energy supply and drive up prices. This proven technology automatically dispatches customers’ on-site assets to generate and store energy at the optimum times for maximum savings. With the ability to monitor and manage distributed energy resources, EaaS capabilities empower customers to participate in energy market programs for additional monetization.
