SENSEI won in the Energy category which considers the number of kilowatt hours of energy saved and percentage of energy from renewable sources. This is the fourth annual competition hosted by SBO and Portland Business Journal. In addition to Energy, other award categories include: water, waste, equity, food, natural environment, and transportation. Needless to say, we are very excited!
Sustainable Business Oregon hosts a bevy of industry events, and their mission is to create a platform for sharing ideas, discussing best practices and accelerating Oregon’s leadership in sustainable business by creating an organized, collaborative community. We’re really proud to be a part of that community.
We know that SENSEI is a game changer when it comes to driving continuous cost-effective savings for industrial facilities worldwide–and now others are beginning to recognize this (see how SENSEI compares to other platforms here.) SENSEI is unique among energy software solutions because it does much more than merely monitor consumption—it helps change behavior by providing the kind of energy data people need to drive results. It’s also the only platform on the market that’s designed by industrial energy-efficiency experts.
To date the industrial complex has been under-served in terms of effective energy-management solutions because the energy industry continues to focus primarily on commercial and residential investments. In commercial buildings and homes energy savings typically results from implementing lighting and HVAC solutions. But industrial customers are faced with complex, interconnected systems that require constant monitoring and fine-tuning to maintain optimal performance levels.
When you consider that industrial facilities consume approximately 1/3 of the energy in the U.S., according to the Department of Energy, the potential for increasing efficiency in the sector is phenomenal.
SENSEI’s positive impact on the environment starts with helping industrial facilities get more productive use out of the energy they consume. When a company integrates energy optimization and efficiency into its core operations, it can be phenomenally successful at reducing both consumption and impact on the environment. SENSEI plays a pivotal role in this process by helping establish a clear picture of true energy performance and then providing a way for all stakeholders to easily communicate and work together to save more each year.
