Sustainability management company Ecova has launched the Ecova Efficiency Platform, a cloud-based product providing integrated data analytics, real-time performance visibility and actionable insight to help utilities deliver programs that maximize energy savings and increase customer satisfaction.
The Ecova Efficiency Platform consolidates utility energy efficiency program data and operational activities into one platform, streamlining operations and providing greater insight across a utility’s portfolio of energy efficiency products and services for ongoing program optimization. Analytic technology combined with Ecova’s expertise enables strategic, targeted and personalized customer engagement to increase participation and improve customer experience, the company says.
The Ecova Efficiency Platform is adaptable to client needs and designed to provide real-time visibility to enable efficient program decisions. Its robust cloud-based reporting provides utilities with actionable program analytics, while its flexible delivery system can be rapidly deployed and easily customized to specific client goals and design requirements (such as hard-to-reach populations or regional needs).
The Ecova Efficiency Platform’s architecture enables Ecova’s Retail Lighting programs to be launched 37 percent faster with 20 percent to 30 percent lower setup costs, the company says.
Ecova launched an LED retail lighting program for a utility client in the Southwest by fusing point-of-sale and in-store market data to fuel precise management of incentive levels and sales volume by product mix and geographic distribution. The company says this resulted in a 42 percent increase in kWh savings through the incentive optimization.
