We call it the energy transition, but I think the “energy perfect storm” might be more fitting. A number of technology, market, policy, and climate trends are reshaping how we view and use energy on a daily basis. This storm includes rapidly rising energy rates, new energy technologies with uncertain results, electrification, decarbonization, workforce turnover, compliance requirements, grid instability, and other challenges.
At Nimble Energy, our mission is to accelerate the energy transition and help our clients benefit from the opportunities the transition is creating. We’re focused on serving both public and private sector organizations impacted by the rapid pace of change, including our schools, local governments, retailers, restaurants, healthcare providers, commercial property owners, and many more.
Conventional Solutions Lack Accessibility and Scalability
I’ve had the good fortune to work in clean energy for almost 20 years. From firsthand experience, I’ve seen huge progress in a few areas, such as renewables, electric vehicles (EVs), and building materials. But too many aspects of how we think about and manage energy haven’t changed, especially when it comes to buildings.
For example, the conventional, services-based approach of combining in-building audits with one-project-at-a-time plans is expensive, time consuming, and not scalable. This leaves many organizations with minimal information about their unique buildings’ equipment; their opportunities to save, invest, decarbonize, or electrify; or which new technologies could have the greatest impact on costs and operations, among other issues.
Don’t get me wrong, we need more energy managers and engineers, not fewer. But we’ll never have enough to cost-effectively scale this approach to meet the needs of most organizations to capitalize on the economic, operational, and climate benefits available.
Our Innovative Platform Solves for These Energy Transition Challenges
At Nimble Energy, we combine the best of artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), building models, and behavioral economics to address these challenges head on. In doing so, we can create a complete picture of the current state of and opportunities for our clients’ buildings by aggregating key data sets and deploying our analytics methods at a fraction of the cost of conventional methods.
But the technology goes far beyond just assessing building conditions. It also helps operators and facilities teams to capture benefits by providing a detailed, long-term plan across a whole portfolio; projecting financial performance; mitigating technology complexity and risk; augmenting workforces; engaging stakeholders; identifying incentives and financing; and streamlining the decision-making process.
In my experience, information and analytics alone aren’t enough to drive change. So we’re leaning heavily into automation, personalization, economics, and behavioral science to create accessible, optimized plans for building portfolios that can help align and motivate stakeholders to action–a far higher level of support than most organizations currently receive. It’s early, but we’re already seeing meaningful results. We’re excited to continue innovating to help our clients benefit from, rather than being steamrolled by, the energy transition.
