On-Demand Energy Manager Platform by Correlate Energy Management

Share via:


We need more ENERGY MANGERS. Were there enough private drivers before uber?N0 Correlate built a platform to provide EnergyManagers OnDemand



There are multiple existing technologies that can save energy and the environment - BUT are massively under deployed. This is because THERE ARE NOT ENOUGH ENERGY MANAGERS! 

Business and organization doesnt have the time/skills/knowledge/resources to implement all these needed projects. They need help, but expensive consultants and existing programs have failed. 

Companies have a difficult time figuring out energy management. Energy is a rapidly changing necessity. How do companies stay on top of the energy evolution with limited resources? And companies want to act but don’t for lack of knowledge, expertise, time, and capital budgets. Correlate built a platform that enables companies an easy path to understand and take action on energy management programs and eliminate the need for capital or budget expense.


"Correlate provides technology based, portfolio-scale energy management programs that require no upfront capital for improvements. Software-driven workflows, analytics, combined with on-demand concierge services execute the work to complete more clean energy and efficiency projects. Correlate's multi-year programs constantly maintain the gains and discover new opportunities in the daily changing energy landscape. We provide the lowest cost, lowest risk, customer-centric option on the market for energy users and industry to deliver cash flow positive, low-carbon solutions."

Correlate provides custom energy management programs to help organizations get up to 60% energy savings results.

Software workflows combined with concierge services provide the needed work to efficiently drive engagement and create the insights and action to do more energy projects.

Correlate's persistent and multi- year service is a fraction of the cost of hiring a traditional energy manager and projects are completed "As a Service", off-balance sheet with no upfront costs.

About the author(s)

Ben Peters is a human who works for Correlate and thinks Strategic Energy Management is whats needed. Not all these fancy gadgets and gizmos, that have really not done enough individually over the past 3 decades. 

The current paradigm of tech competing for attention is broken and needs to be solved with SEM
