About Us

Sustainable Energy Solutions, Inc. is an energy services firm that specializes in helping the smaller organization deal with energy cost reduction. The traditional ESCO model normally serves the energy needs of organizations that have energy consumption in excess of ten million dollars per year. At SES, we recognize that for a nursing home, a private high school, a health club or other middle market company, a combined energy bill of $250,000 per year can represent a staggeringly high cost relative to their annual revenues. Our typical customer has energy bills in the range of $100,000 to $1,000,000 per year.

We also recognize that a combination of factors has emerged in recent years that have made the area of energy and energy-related utilities complex for the organizations that we seek to serve, many of whom do not have in-house staff versed in energy matters and who may not feel that their traditional mechanical/electrical/plumbing/maintenance contractors can provide them with the more sophisticated answers that they require in an environment of increased risk and cost, and with the potential for increased savings.

Sustainable Energy Solutions is providing solutions by offering Energy Improvement Program uses these tools to assist local Managers and corporate management in understanding, and then managing, energy use and cost. The EMIS supports the following cost reductions:

a. Benchmarking Energy Consumption: Understanding the patterns of all forms of energy use helps in assessing the potential for savings. With the data available through EMIS, our analysts, together with the client, can organize and display (visualize) key energy parameters in real time for cost savings.

b. Reduction in Distribution Loss: With our system it is easy for managers to identify energy consumed by each circuit and major machine. It is useful to know whether power received from source is being utilized effectively by all loads. Understanding the measured values, management can reduce losses.

c. Reducing Peak Demand: Spotting peaks, and the reasons for those peaks, leads to managing demand reductions and resultant demand charges. Regular verification of daily load profile will helps identify and eliminate demand spikes, such as those associated with simultaneous motor, pump, and compressor start ups.

d. Energy Resource Planning: Our system computes the energy balance at various nodes to formulate and implement loss elimination schemes. EMIS supports overall energy accounting. Energy pattern of feeders, when monitored, shows variation in power consumption patterns and makes it a candidate for immediate control.

e. Eliminating Inefficient Equipment Operation: This is highly useful in quickly spotting wasteful energy use. By reviewing daily load profiles and comparing to bench mark levels, managers can identify when equipment is not performing properly or unused equipment is left running. Our services have helped customer in saving of 5% or more.

f. Predictive Maintenance: EMIS helps in planned shut downs based on run hours and efficiency of the equipment. This reduces down time and helps plan predictive maintenance.

EMIS In The Middle Market

The recent trend of higher energy prices has caused a number of responses in the market. The first is for facility operators to look for lower cost energy. Put another way, facility operators will not look at conservation, or operations practices or replacement of capital equipment as a first step. Purchasing commodity at a lower cost is a typical and valid first means to achieve energy cost reduction.

With energy prices rising relative to other budget items such as labor and health care, facility owners are looking further at energy use. An Energy Management Information System (EMIS) is a tool that yields substantial amounts of useful data regarding facility energy consumption and performance.

Example of Energy Management Information System capabilities

1. Monitor multiple circuits at sites
2. Internet based enabling you to see real time, parameter reports on-line
3. Multiple 20 electrical parameters monitored online
4. Digital meters of high quality certified internationally
5. Automation of equipment is doable on request, although not a standard feature
6. T&D loss tracking for quantifying costs of reactive current due to internal resistance of
wiring as a percent of total consumption.
7. Breaker Status monitoring for instant response to shop breakers openings
8. Phase load balance reporting for re-balancing phases
9. Non electric monitoring for pressure, flow, temperature for energy consumption
10. Load control for taking advantage of TOD rates and internal cogenerations supplies
11. Monitor power quality voltage and frequencies for cutting costs of high neutral current,
12. Process control monitoring for taking stand-alone data from process machinery and
calculating optimum energy usages.
13. Fuels usage efficiency
14. Costing of process products per unit
15. Reduce maximum demand – which will help in those few places still needing help.
16. Equipment efficiency reporting – cooling towers, compressed air, refrigeration, fans
17. Load factor for each shop and facility for benchmark comparisons per square foot.
18. Predictive maintenance for cost-effective replacement of obsolete equipment
19. Root cause analyses
20. Verification of cogen reduced carbon footprint
