SEATTLE - Optimum Energy, LLC, provider of heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) software solutions that set a new standard in energy efficiency, is strengthening its partner support programs with enhanced project development tools and training resources. Optimum Energy's support is customized to meet the needs of each project partner, and is designed to ensure reliable savings projections, a streamlined sales process and successful implementation.
HVAC optimization offers new business opportunities for equipment and controls suppliers, mechanical and controls contractors, engineering firms, and plant maintenance and service providers. Incorporating Optimum Energy's optimization software into efficiency projects maximizes the energy reduction potential of high-efficiency, variable speed equipment to improve overall project return on investment. Optimum Energy's solutions typically represent 10 to 15 percent of an overall project investment, leaving the vast majority of the total project revenue for partners.
"Optimum Energy's success is dependent on supporting all of our partners at all stages of the sales and implementation process," said Matthew Frey, president and CEO, Optimum Energy. "Our partners and customers benefit from our HVAC expertise, and our ability to reliably deliver the industry's highest levels of energy reductions. Working together, we are changing the way the commercial building industry approaches efficiency and setting new standards for energy reduction - one building at a time."
Optimum Energy offers customized partner support at every stage of the sales and implementation process based on partner and project needs. Partner support services include:
o Project development support: Business development representatives and local account executives support partners at every stage of a project, from identifying potential projects, to assisting with customer meetings, analysis and proposal development.
o Education: Customized training sessions cover a broad range of topics, from how the solutions work, to developing targeting criteria and demonstrating successes in a variety of plant configurations, building types and geographies.
o Preliminary savings analysis: A free preliminary savings analysis, including an estimated scope of work and return on investment, helps determine quickly whether a specific project is a good candidate for optimization.
o Site validation/engineering study: Once a project has been identified as a viable optimization candidate, Optimum Energy works with partners to conduct an on-site study or review planning documents to validate and fine tune energy savings calculations, scope of work and return on investment.
o Design/Build: For new construction or major retrofits, Optimum Energy provides a range of sales support services, including peer review of plans and documents, savings modeling and bid/specification documents.
o Project proposal: Site validation/engineering study results are used to generate an optimization proposal, including a project description and financial analysis that can be used by partners for their project bids.
o Project implementation support: Project level integration application guides, technical training for contractor teams, and step-by-step execution detail support project installations and integration.
o Measurement, verification and management services: Web-based measurement, verification and management services, reporting and ongoing technical support continue after implementation to sustain energy reductions.
