Managing multi-source, multi-sink energy grids requires massive investments in interdependent infrastructure as well as simultaneous management of disparate market forces in order to reduce costs and manage reliability. These supply and delivery grids are dominated by risk from uncertainties such as weather, market variations, transportation, governance, logistics, and asset reliability. Reputational risk as it relates to environmental sustainability, energy performance, and reliability dominate board room discussions, but are rarely quantified, understood, or actively managed from a risk management perspective in planning, engineering, or every day operations. These uncertainties and accompanying business inefficiencies can be continuously acted on by use of computational decision-making tools that enable rich opportunities to improve a firm’s profitability through reduced costs and by mitigating or containing emergent and emergency situations. CALM Energy has developed software-based solutions to these uncertainties and business inefficiencies combining with the latest smart grid and business process standards.
Businesses routinely make strategic decisions to sell, buy, build, and use infrastructure of all kinds to supply customers with energy. Costly decisions about the maintenance and redesign of these facilities also need to be made. Assets have to be modernized and modified to provide reliable and valuable services to the customer, or they risk being made obsolete by changing technologies, regulations, or market forces. In such infrastructure based businesses, uncertainty is the prime impediment to profitability, rather than the maintenance of efficient supply chains or the management of assembly lines. Energy products must be delivered 24/7 and often to a global market. Bad incidents related to weather, equipment failures, industrial accidents, and government regulations must be managed. More importantly, these incidents need to be predicted and pre-emptive actions need to be taken before they become uncontrollable costly events. At CALM Energy, we are passionate about providing solutions to these impediments to profitability. CALM Energy provides software-based energy services and solutions to a firm’s existing energy management, whether it be a large electric utility or a micro-grid of buildings, to manage uncertainty and to reduce costs.
