AUSTIN, Texas, July 30, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Noesis Energy, the fastest-growing energy measurement and savings website, announced that it is supporting the efforts of EDF Climate Corps fellows and their host companies, universities and cities. By utilizing Noesis' energy management tools and community of more than 11,000 energy professionals, the EDF Climate Corps fellows (who are embedded in leading companies, cities, universities or nonprofits) are able to track, prioritize and forecast energy-efficiency projects in their facilities.
"We've been so impressed with the level of sophistication and sheer enthusiasm of the EDF Climate Corps fellows," said Scott Harmon, CEO of Noesis Energy. "Noesis has been a longtime supporter of EDF, initially with EDF Climate Corps, and more recently as a Project Ally with the EDF Investor Confidence Project. Noesis and EDF are well aligned to remove many of the barriers that have kept too many efficiency projects on the sidelines. We're looking forward to continuing to work with EDF in the years to come."
EDF Climate Corps taps the talents of tomorrow's leaders by placing specially trained graduate students into hundreds of leading organizations as dedicated energy problem solvers. By highlighting the financial and environmental gains from energy efficiency and sharing best practices and cost-effective ways to save energy, each EDF Climate Corps fellow uncovers an average of $1 million in energy savings for each participating organization. The 2013 program has 116 fellows.
Noesis provides the free tools necessary for anyone to easily evaluate the energy performance of a commercial or industrial facility, locate areas in need of improvement and—most importantly—enable the advancement of energy projects. All this can all be accomplished with Noesis' free, web-based software tools. As their needs evolve, EDF Climate Corps fellows have access to premium project reporting services and project financing services to meet the requirements of their host organizations.
A few EDF Climate Corps fellows speak out about their experience with Noesis:
"I have found Noesis Energy extremely helpful in forecasting the monetary impacts that various energy-efficiency projects could have at my host organization. The reports I'm able to generate through Noesis Energy help me convince key stakeholders of the environmental and financial returns of proposed initiatives." – Jessica Lehmann, 2013 EDF Climate Corps fellow
"Noesis has been instrumental in understanding my host organization's energy data. It is great to have it in one place and easy to analyze." – Sam Kahn, 2013 EDF Climate Corps fellow
"The platform is visually appealing and an excellent complement to Energy Star Portfolio Manager. I would especially recommend the platform to clients with large portfolios to help them easily view consumption and performance trends, potential reduction opportunities, and to track the success of upgrades and retrofits. I also love how Noesis draws on social media to support its platform with a community of like-minded energy-efficiency professionals that are quick to offer input on projects and post the latest news from the field." – Charlotte Peyraud, 2013 EDF Climate Corps fellow
"Noesis recently helped me create an insightful snapshot of my host organization's energy usage. This has helped shape and set the direction of my project for the remainder of my fellowship. With the help of Noesis and their amazing staff, I could not imagine how I would have been able to generate the reports and analysis I now have at hand. As I continue with my work, I will definitely be using Noesis to help manage my work and craft my recommendations to my host organization. I would recommend Noesis to anyone dealing with large-scale energy-efficiency projects." – Daniel Heras, 2013 EDF Climate Corps fellow
"Noesis has been a great resource for tracking and understanding energy usage. Noesis' discussion forum has also been very helpful, and has allowed me to have complex questions answered by energy experts in the Noesis community. I would recommend Noesis to energy managers who are struggling to understand their energy usage, how potential energy-efficiency projects have or may impact energy usage, or are simply trying to learn more about their systems." – Robert Orvis, 2013 EDF Climate Corps fellow
