Maximize income opportunities like demand response.
Programs that pay you to adopt new energy measures, approaches or behaviors are proliferating as the “smart grid” and sustainability sectors gain traction and exert influence.
World Energy can help you stay on top of the incentives available to you and effectively integrate them into your overall energy game plan. With many dollars at stake, some incentives worth consideration include:
- Demand Response – These multi-billion-dollar grid-run programs come in many flavors, including Emergency, Synchronous/Spinning Reserves and Economic, offering payments to customers who can curtail energy use when needed.
- Renewable Energy and Efficiency Credits – Federal and State incentive programs fund and reward a gamut of clean-energy and energy-efficiency measures, including green building initiatives, high-efficiency lighting and mechanical systems, and the implementation and use of solar panels.
- Combined Heat & Power (CHP) Systems – Many states offer incentives for CHP – or cogeneration – systems, which produce electricity and heat from a single fuel source, such as natural gas. CHPs can reduce energy costs and act as a hedge against volatile energy prices.
World Energy approaches incentive programs with the same focus on value it applies across energy commodities. The World Energy Exchange is the first online marketplace for sourcing demand response. Now you can make providers compete for your curtailment just as you do for power and natural gas, a process optimized to net you more dollars and reduce your overall energy cost. In the case of energy efficiency, we’re skilled at getting you the most incentive dollars for your lighting, mechanical and energy management systems (EMS) projects.
