SunTrust Bank - Energy Management Information System
BITHENERGY is helping SunTrust Bank monitor and track their energy usage across 1500 different buildings in 10 different states while managing over 2300 electric and gas accounts. SunTrust Banks, with assets of over $172.9 billion, is one of the nation’s largest financial services holding companies. BITHENERGY has implemented an Energy Management Information System featuring EnergyCAP to track and monitor energy usage. BITHENERGY set up the system, input historical data to establish a baseline and manages the database. BITHENERGY inputs data on a monthly basis and analyzes SunTrust’s utility bills. BITHENERGY is especially efficient at analyzing utility bills because of our extensive knowledge of complex rate schedules, various commodities and vendors.
EnergyCAP gives BITHENERGY the ability to audit the data to verify that the energy usage information is accurate. Reports are created and billing errors are corrected. EnergyCAP allows the grouping of buildings to compare energy usage patterns and compute Energy Star Ratings as well as creates graphical models to assist with analyzing energy usage and with monitoring trends. Executive management reports are produced that help managers make decisions about energy usage, energy suppliers and future energy related recommendations.
During the course of this project, BITHENERGY found a billing error that resulted in SunTrust receiving a refund of over $31,000. BITHENERGY has also helped SunTrust cancel many utility accounts, saving over $100,000. BITHENERGY’s solution provides a quick and easy way to monitor energy usage.
