Vlad Hernandez, VP, IoTEnergy management is gradually becoming the key area of focus for major businesses across the world. It was often neglected by firms until the advent of the Internet of Things (IoT). Successful energy management can not only bring down expenses but can also serve as an added path of revenue. The modern-day energy management solutions help organizations to have a cost-effective and eco-friendly business without compromising on the quality and efficiency of the services. These smarter ways of energy management are transforming businesses like never before. Choosing the right energy management solutions provider can be a major decision, which can translate into big energy cost reductions and even bigger efficiency gains.
Environ Partners is a company whose vision is to help the world see energy differently. Based in Frisco, Texas, Environ comprises of experts who are committed to delivering innovative energy management solutions. Environ Partners customizes energy-saving and financial strategies that result in operational efficiencies, predictable costs, increased reliability, and overall sustainability for industrial and commercial companies. The company’s financial intelligence, cutting-edge energy solutions, and customer advocacy are its core competencies and what sets it apart from the competition.
Environ’s focus is to ensure real-time energy data is readily available through its IoT platform and services. “We intend to create a unified IoT platform to collect and centralize data across our client’s assets so they can make better informed decisions around their energy spend. Better decisions lead to efficiencies and savings directly impacting the bottom line,” says Vlad Hernandez, VP, IoT of Environ Partners. Taking a holistic approach to energy management, Environ recently completed replacing traditional lights with LEDs as well as upgrading the HVAC system to a more efficient solution for a large office development group in Dallas, Texas. Coupling this approach with their IoT services, Environ implemented an energy management solution that collected and analyzed real-time energy data, identified system standards and anomalies, increased operational efficiency by 10%, and reduced overall energy consumption by almost 20%.

“By encompassing our client’s entire energy spend, we enable ourselves to be very creative and offer innovative solutions for them to not only curtail their energy usage but also potentially earn revenue,” adds Hernandez. Through its creative solutions, the company has also helped clients add revenue to the bottom line by having them participate in demand response programs, which pay the business to respond to grid stress by reducing energy load.
Environ plans to dig deeper and push forward in the domain of healthcare. Healthcare facilities spend more than $9.7 Billion on energy annually and are one of the most energy-intensive building types. The company is developing a specific energy management program tailored to hospitals, which will optimize the energy required to sustain operations as well as reduce their overall operational cost. Hernandez adds that, “The savings in energy consumption can be transferred directly to the cost of patient care.” The team of experts at Environ provides clients with the best solutions according to their needs and look towards knitting long-term relationships. Environ intends to expand its services in other areas of the country as well, to cater to the needs of their clients faster and more efficiently.
