Engineering Approach and Methodology

Reduce Project Risk with Performance Management, Savings and Efficiency

Asset PerformiX project engineering approach and methodologies enable customers to take the risk out of their Grid Modernization projects with DERMS, VPP, and site engineering. We use a utility energy maturity model where each project reduces risk, increases resiliency, reliability, and efficiency with DER equipment assets providing optimization and many benefits.

Our process has years of success with 87 companies and 14 + years of utility DER and energy efficiency experience combined with 25 years of industrial operation, equipment, and asset integration experience. We have worked with some of the largest utilities, labs, and research facilities completing some very complex projects that many cost saving and operational benefits with some very happy customers and awards.
