Manufacturers and industrial companies are among the largest consumers of energy in the country. APenergy lowers those energy costs through our unique approach to energy management systems and utility incentives.

Problems We Solve

Optimal energy efficiency in your facility is the result of a process of continuous improvement. We are technical experts that help you start down the right path on a strategic energy management program.

With unbiased insights and cost-effective strategies, we reduce your energy consumption without sacrificing the product quality or production uptime. Utilizing utility incentive programs, we can typically offer our services to boost your performance, and we do it often without charging your facility a dime.

Energy Analysis

We perform an audit of your current systems and any upcoming projects to find opportunities for energy saving initiatives or funding from utility incentives.

Energy Savings solutions

Implementation

We’re always willing to get our hands dirty and start developing your implementation plan with quotes on equipment and contractors and verification for funding.

Why We’re Different

  • Independent and Brand Neutral

    We have chosen to remain independent and brand neutral so our solutions are the most economical for our clients. Our core service is energy consulting and how we implement is up to you.

  • Custom Solutions

    No facility is the same, and we don’t offer a packaged solution. Each facility is a clean slate, with new opportunities and new avenues for unique improvements. We become an extension of your internal technical staff by paying personal attention to your project planning, implementation, and completion. Our mission is to manage energy consumption while meeting production objectives of industrial clients.

  • Trade Ally Network

    Our 35+ years of industrial assessments has fostered relationships with implementers all over the continental US. This is a direct benefit of working directly with facilities preferred vendors and we are now in the unique position to offer those relationships to clients, filling in gaps to better manage the clients objectives.

Technologies We Address

We provide support over a wide range of technologies and industrial systems. Our utility incentive management success extends well beyond traditional Energy Savings Projects to cover Plant Expansions, New Production Lines, New Industrial Processes, and most any project being considered in a plant’s capital budget plan.

Industries We Serve

We help manufacturers and industrial facilities improve their energy performance and pay for it through utility incentives and funding. We don’t sell or install equipment, but we have established connections with trusted vendors that do. We work with individual facilities or multi-plant organizations.

Compressed Air Case Study

APenergy assisted an industrial manufacturing plant with a $300,000 compressed air system re-piping and optimization project. It resulted in reducing the plant’s operating costs by more than $150 each month. With our help, they were able to do all of this without spending a penny of their own funds.

Process Cooling Case Study

Through energy analysis, project consulting, and utility incentive funding, APenergy helped this industrial manufacturer reduce their operating costs. This $60,000 process cooling modification project reduced operating costs by $70,000 without costing the plant any money.

Frequently Asked Questions

APenergy started as a compressed air industry expert, focusing on implementing compressed air-related projects with our in-house expertise. Now, APenergy maximizes its trade ally network to implement and manage incentives for all types of industrial projects including but not limited to: lighting, HVAC, vacuum, process cooling, process improvement, plant expansions, hydraulic and pumping systems, thermal insulation, and variable frequency drives.

We primarily focus on US manufacturing with focus localities that vary year-to-year.

For us, this means that APenergy does not sell equipment. We take an independent, impartial assessment of your facility and work with your recommended implementers to develop energy-efficient projects. However, if the facility does not have a preferred vendor, APenergy has preferred trade allies located all over the US to assist in the implementation process

Technical assessment, system troubleshooting, project implementation support, project incentive management and funding, monitoring and tracking systems, incentive management for capital projects and plant expansions, corporate programs for benchmarking and annual energy initiatives.

Many programs have specific rules about what is referred to as a free rider. These are projects that would occur or are occurring, regardless of their utility benefit, and therefore the project is ineligible for Utility incentives. This is exactly why it’s best to get APenergy involved as early as possible to verify eligibility prior to starting the project. The specifics are different for each utility program and having APenergy involved with a low/no-cost walkthrough to assess eligibility is always a good idea.

Many of our recommended projects can be implemented with little to no capital costs. We work towards that goal because of the ever-restricting corporate budgets being allocated. Even projects upwards of $10K typically require a corporate budget approval. Developing utility funding options, as well prioritizing focus on projects the facility wants to implement, APenergy is typically able to keep these decisions at the facility level, quickly improving implementation timelines and maintaining a low, up-front cost.
