Rising costs, tighter margins, and competing needs for capital continue to prevent many industries from proactively addressing deferred maintenance, energy infrastructure upgrades, and large-scale renovations or new construction projects. Energy-as-a-Service is our solution.
Energy-as-a-Service is an emerging market sector that provides an alternative to the typical customer-funded or financed project. In the Energy-as-a-Service model, a client partners with a service provider to manage the client’s complete energy portfolio needs. This includes project financing, implementation, and long-term asset management.
Like other subscription-based business models, Energy-as-a-Service solutions provide clients with the benefits of efficient and reliable energy without the need to directly manage energy production and use. By partnering with an outside expert like Bernhard, clients can focus their resources on their core business operations.
Bernhard is the only turnkey Energy-as-a-Service solutions provider in North America.
With financing, design, build, and on-going operation all provided in-house, Bernhard is the only turnkey Energy-as-a-Service provider in North America. From procurement to end-use in the facility, Bernhard’s team applies expertise from more than 100 years in the industry to ensure long-term success. Our turnkey solutions reduce energy use, risk, and cost so that our clients can focus on their everyday work.
Healthcare, higher education, government, and commercial clients can all benefit from the Energy-as-a-Service business model, which provides a holistic solution to common challenges of maintaining and operating the built environment.
With rapidly aging infrastructure and a growing backlog of deferred maintenance at institutions across the country, many are faced with difficult decisions about how to allocate limited capital. Energy-as-a-Service ensures those dollars remain with investments in the core business, while Bernhard takes on the burden of capital renewal and maintenance of energy infrastructure projects.
Bernhard’s Energy-as-a-Service offerings are unique, custom solutions based on the client’s needs. Our experts in finance, legal, accounting, and engineering develop energy infrastructure renewal and optimization programs to monetize assets, reduce risk, and maintain customer liquidity and proper balance sheet treatment. We offer flexibility in the development and structure of our Energy-as-a-Service solutions in order to maximize benefits to the client.
Comprehensive Energy Conservation
Saving energy is at the core of a successful Energy-as-a-Service project. We know from experience that sustainable energy reduction starts with the big-picture perspective. Our in-house engineers and contractors take a comprehensive look at client’s energy use and determine the best methods for reducing demand and optimizing systems. This expert analysis forms the foundation of energy efficiency measures that are implemented through the life of the partnership.
We provide for sustainable, long-term operation through integrated O&M, monitoring, and asset management services. This multi-faceted approach provides proactive operation and maintenance, driven by data analysis and engineering expertise. All operations staff receive regular, industry-leading training that is tailored to the systems and equipment in the facility. Supported by a team of engineers and contractors, they are empowered to operate the energy assets at their optimal level.
