Our mission is to manage energy consumption while meeting production objectives of industrial clients.

Our 35+ years of industrial assessments have 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.

FAQ

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
