US Energy Group Announces Total Energy Efficiency Management (TEEM)
Fresh Meadows, NY: US Energy Group announces TEEM, a new enhanced energy management and metering service that provides clients with a dedicated Energy Manager, who works to maximize their fuel, electric, and water savings while improving tenant comfort. TEEM clients outsource their energy monitoring to US Energy Group, and a dedicated expert checks their buildings daily, comparing them to other buildings, and providing a weekly update on the efficiency of each building.
“Using the most advanced technology in the industry and experts who are knowledgeable and customer-focused, TEEM makes running an efficient building completely hassle-free,” stated David Unger, Chief Operating Officer.
TEEM is an add-on service, available in buildings using US Energy Group’s flagship BEMS, which reduces fuel usage by 15-30% with a payback in less than two years, and the USE Manager information portal. The dedicated TEEM Energy Manager handles daily Alert Monitoring, reviewing all HVAC system issues and trouble-shooting with the building staff to determine the exact cause of the issue. The expert also conducts trend analyses, identifying concerns, such as short cycling and heat imbalances. Solutions are recommended for ongoing operational issues and are tracked until they are resolved. TEEM clients also receive comprehensive BEMS and USE Manager training for property managers, superintendents, and administrators, as well as unlimited phone support.
During weekly conference calls, the TEEM Energy Manager provides a comprehensive and succinct status update on all open issues, and discusses the overall performance of the building. The client receives a building report card each week, providing three separate grades for the building. The Energy Grade reflects energy consumption in comparison to other similar buildings. The Comfort Grade is based on interior space temperature, and the Operations Grade is based on quantitative metrics reflecting boiler plant operations, such as stack temperature and water loss.
As the leading pioneer in energy management solutions for existing residential, commercial, and industrial buildings from 20,000 to 500,000 square feet, US Energy Group’s BEM and USE Manager are currently in over 3,500 buildings, including high-profile portfolios owned by Newman Knight Frank (37 commercial buildings) and OMNI Properties (110 residential buildings). TEEM makes these robust and powerful systems even more versatile and personalized.
“TEEM clients can let us worry about the details,” stated Jerry Pindus, Chief Executive Officer of US Energy Group. “They have peace of mind knowing that their buildings are running efficiently, their tenants are comfortable, and they are saving money.”
