|Holmes Energy Clients|
Holmes Energy Has Been Providing Energy Partners Since 1979
Our methods are radically different from those used by others in this profession. We partner with our clients to serve as their in-house energy experts on an ongoing basis.
We recognize that People are the Key, Technology is Only A Tool. Energy management is a continuous process not a one-time project.
We have provided Energy Partners to General Electric, RCA, Alcoa, DuPont, Honda, Rexnord, GenCorp, Mitsui, Kosmos, Hoover, Golden Casting, Mariah Meat Packing & many others.
Holmes Energy Partners Have Unique Qualifications
Holmes Energy Partners work in teams. Our teams consist of a minimum of one Energy Partner who is a Registered Professional Engineer and/or Certified Energy Manager with a minimum of 20 year's actual field and project experience, plus one Energy Partner who is a young and highly qualified engineer in the early stages of her or his career.
The Energy Partner Team approach results in mentoring and continuous energy education for both our clients and in-house professionals. It combines and utilizes the best and latest technologies along with practical and proven solutions for the benefit of our clients.
Energy Partnerships Produce Results
The key to our success is that our contracts are structured so that both the owner and Holmes Energy Partners have the same goals, to produce, document and maintain savings on a long term basis. When we work together as partners and are successful, we both benefit. There is no minimum contract period. We must produce value on a continuing basis for the Partnership to continue.
The existing energy conservation profession makes money from selling products or services, from capital improvements, audits and studies, not from saving energy. We help our clients produce energy savings as quickly as possible with the lowest first cost and fastest return on the initial investment through good management alone. Our experience has been that our clients recover their initial investment within 6-9 months.
Our Industrial Clients are the Experts
Holmes Energy has never subscribed to the theory that an outside energy expert can come into a complex industrial plant where most of their utility costs are for production systems, do an audit or study and tell them how to run their plant more efficiently. Industrial plants already have tremendous in-house technical capabilities; that is a given in order to survive in today’s market. However, they may have little energy data or experience in integrating utility costs with existing management and information systems. That’s where Holmes Energy comes in.
Our Services Include Providing the Unique and Powerful Holmes “AutoPilot Analytics” Software Package
The system was developed by Bill Holmes in 1979 while he was a Purdue Professor teaching Thermodynamics, Thermal System Analysis, Energy Conservation and Mechanical System Design classes. It is based on his 7 years in the U.S. Air Force working with Fighter instrumentation systems.
The "AutoPilot Analytics" Software continuously collects information from installed sensors, analyzes critical systems data, identifies and presents opportunities to improve systems efficiency and reduce consumption and costs while improving performance. The data is presented in a clear and easy-to-understand format and is continuously available to all authorized personnel In the Cloud.
The “AutoPilot Analytics” Software provides an accurate, continuous, unbiased energy audit of the entire facility and major energy systems, a continuous commissioning system, the data required to insure that the energy systems are working properly and running efficiently, and notification the instant something goes wrong.
Our teams are trained to use the actual monitored data from the AutoPilot Analytics Software along with the methods developed and used by Holmes Energy for more than 33 years to assist our clients in meeting, documenting and maintaining their goals.
Our Partners Help Clients Run Their Plants More Effectively, Efficiently and Profitably
We assign energy professionals to work closely with the client on an ongoing basis and provide all of the energy information, analysis and support the client needs. We train their employees to use the resulting information and then assist them as necessary to produce and maintain savings.
Our Partners Help Clients Evaluate & Verify Capital Projects
When a client is considering an investment in a capital project as a part of a plant or production improvement or expansion, or to further reduce energy costs, Holmes Energy will assist in the evaluation using actual monitored energy data to accurately size equipment and predict energy consumption and savings. Actual data will be used to verify the resulting performance, savings and ROI.
