Ecova and Powerhouse Dynamics Expand Energy Management Partnership
Ecova, the total energy and sustainability management company, and Powerhouse Dynamics, creators of the SiteSage enterprise energy and asset management platform, have announced a milestone in their partnership to provide energy management and managed services to portfolios of facilities under 10,000 square feet.
Powerhouse Dynamics brings its award-winning SiteSage enterprise energy and asset management system to the partnership and Ecova brings its sizeable and industry-leading resource monitoring services team. Under the partnership, Ecova offers SiteSage directly to its customers, saving them up to 29% by using the combined solution.
As energy prices, staffing expenses, and product costs rise, restaurants, convenience stores, and retailers have been challenged to produce profits within tightening margins. Remote equipment control and analytics, asset management and facility services have become increasingly important in preserving operational efficiency and protecting the bottom line. Increasingly, savvy businesses are implementing energy management systems and services.
Ecova and Powerhouse Dynamics already provide this solution to several clients, including Arby’s, who just announced 11 percent total energy reduction per company-owned restaurant since 2011. “Thanks to equipment control and insights from SiteSage, and Ecova’s services interpreting and acting on intelligence generated by the system, Arby’s has seen significant annual savings across its portfolio of company-owned restaurants,” said Frank Inoa, senior director of engineering for Arby’s. This full-spectrum integrated approach offers maximum benefit while minimizing demands on restaurant, retail, and convenience store staff, freeing them to better serve customers.
