The Midwest Energy Efficiency Alliance (MEEA) has awarded its 2020 Inspiring Efficiency Innovation Award to ComEd. As the program creator and manager, Power TakeOff first launched the Virtual Commissioning (VCx™​) Program in ComEd’s Illinois service territory starting in 2016. At no cost to participants, the VCx™​ Program helps SMBs and public institutions identify and implement operational focused energy efficiency improvements. These hard-to-reach customer segments represent more than 90% of all non-residential accounts for ComEd. Power TakeOff has substantially grown the VCx™​ Program from its 2 GWh savings achievement...

In the spirit of the holidays and to brighten up our Denver office space, the team held a door decorating competition in lead up to the company's holiday office party. Competition was fierce and impressive as numerous teams put forth clever and detailed displays. As voted on by the families of staff at the party, Nate and Clark were awarded a much deserved first place, followed very closely by Chris and Natalie with a company themed design...

Join a few Power TakeOff team members at one of the most rejuvenating conferences of the year. BECC is a great conference to learn new behavioral sciences, program designs, and research from the top graduate students and organizations in our industry. We're excited to take some time away from the office to take a step back and look at the industry anew. We look forward to seeing you at the many events....

With all energy efficiency program designs, the company makes changes to consumption and then calculates savings. Deemed savings estimates allow for engineers to make comparisons between equipment that was previously installed and estimate lifetime savings for new equipment. Whole building modeling gives programs the opportunity to do non-intrusive monitoring to look at the facility from a holistic view. One of the major benefits of using whole building approaches with utility data is the ability to monitor...

Despite the massive opportunity for energy reduction, operational savings in commercial buildings have long been low on utility priority list because of the challenges of big data: acquisition, analysis, and action. There are energy savings that are easy to prove, and energy savings that are harder to prove. Proving energy savings from capital measures, like changing out lightbulbs, is relatively simple. Incandescent light bulbs use a certain amount of power to operate, and LEDs use less...

Join Power TakeOff and over 50 national corporations at the EEI Fall National Key Accounts Workshop in Las Vegas Oct. 6-9. This will be Power TakeOffs six consecutive attendance at the workshop and continually finds the agenda, audience, and networking to be worth the time away from the office. Karen and Peter look forward to catching up with our Virtual CommissioningTM partners at our booth #409....

Small and Medium businesses have traditionally been hard to reach the market for utilities. The potential for savings at a single site is significantly smaller and historically the cost per kWh savings less attractive than larger C&I locations for utility energy efficiency programs. This year Power TakeOff's Virtual Commissioning (VCxTM) Program is on track to surpass each filed program goal for our utility partners. In light of this success, one utility partner has recently increased the program...

Power TakeOff's Colorado based team, with not pictured families and pets, took a break from the fun of energy efficiency and data science to enjoy some outdoor sun at Chautauqua Park recently. We were blessed with a visit from a few of our Canadian colleagues in town for the IEPEC Conference on EM&V that afforded us the opportunity to showcase Denver and Boulder....
