Energy Intelligence PlatformTM (EIP)

Our SaaS-based utility intelligence platform is designed to drive best-practice energy and utility management practices for single or multi-facility organizations. Our proprietary cloud-based approach utilizes invoice and data reception to create aggregated, actionable energy analytics and automates the bill-pay and energy procurement process. In addition to collection and bill-pay services, the Newmark EIP provides benchmarking reports around energy usage, tracking of energy efficiency initiatives and customizable reporting to suit your business requirements. The EIP helps our clients identify the value of implementing energy conservation measures such as ENERGY STARTM scoring, facility upgrades, operational changes, and procurement strategies.

Financing Solutions

At Newmark, we understand that upfront costs are a major barrier to implementing energy efficiency and conservation projects. An important goal of efficiency projects and programs is to help finance these upfront costs so our clients are encouraged to invest in energy improvements without breaking the bank. Through Newmark’s deep network of financing partners, we enable clients to participate in savings upside from day 1 without deploying any internal resources. Our team offers financing structures to provide site owners with access to up-front capital and financing for comprehensive facility energy improvements, which are the repaid over time as energy savings are generated.

Renewable Energy Credits and Carbon Offsets

With corporates accounting for about 50 percent of global energy demand, the renewable energy and carbon markets have seen massive growth from initiatives to offset conventional grid electricity. Newmark Energy and Sustainability offers unique REC and carbon products to clients who are searching for ways to offset their energy usage, and where localized or on-site sustainability solutions are a challenge. With deep relationships and expertise in the wholesale environmental markets, we are able to structure the best products tailored to our clients’ sustainability goals. Our team offers various types of carbon offset classes/price structures under both the Climate Action Reserve (CAR) and the Gold Standard for verified emission reduction. Under the Green-eTM protocol, the most widely used renewable energy standard in North America, we are able to offer diverse REC products based on technology and geography.
