Enhancements to EnergyPoints Analytics platform, Version 2.5.1, include the ability for users to set and track energy-, emissions- and cost-reduction goals on a user-defined, normalized basis.
The enhancements allow companies to analyze their entire supply chains and achieve more precise energy efficiency and cost savings. For example, a retail company can now set a goal of reducing energy resource utilization, emissions, or cost on a square-foot basis. A coffee company could do the same on a per-cup-of-coffee basis.
Other normalizations used by EnergyPoints clients include per unit of production, revenue, or employee. Additionally, organizations can customize their own normalizations through the EnergyPoints platform.
Energy Points provides integrated source-to-site energy analytics through an enterprise software-as-a-service platform, which measures “behind the utility meter” for electricity, fuels, transportation, waste and water. Using embodied energy principals, Energy Points converts each of these to an EnergyPoint (EP), which is equivalent to a gallon of gasoline, and Energy per Gallon (EPG), which is comparable to the MPG of a car.
The EnergyPoints platform facilitates benchmarking, evaluating projects, managing the risk of changing regulations, communicating to stakeholders, and supporting required disclosures, according to the company.
