Market Problem: Lack of Unified Reporting
Energy reporting lacks a unified platform, a fact made clear by the numerous energy vendors in the market offering a variety of systems and software. Created by computer scientists in labs, many of these solutions miss the practical considerations of daily management and building operations.
Owners are often enter this complex field aiming to:
- Reduce operating costs;
- Promote Green initiatives; and
- Comply with EPA and municipal mandates.
This is noticeable as you walk through different buildings, where energy control systems from Siemens, Johnson Controls, Carrier, and others work independently without coordination. A complete management platform is essential to effectively control and coordinate a building’s systems. Without a structured solution, building systems can become disorganized, resulting in significant energy waste.

Executive Statement: ECC is the Solution
The EPA revealed that $60 billion in energy is wasted annually by commercial and industrial sectors — a cost borne by building owners and tenants. Solving this market problem is feasible with the right tools. The Energy Control Company (ECC) offers a comprehensive accounting and control system designed to produce results. ECC monitors energy, pinpoints waste, and solves the problem.
Monitor & Pinpoint Energy Waste
ECC recently tackled the prevalent issue of high utility expenses in a commercial office building. Facing tenant dissatisfaction and the possibility of tenants seeking cheaper spaces, the client embraced the challenge and proactively sought a solution. ECC became that solution by addressing the tenant’s needs and providing effective improvements.
ECC recently installed its Submetering system in the client’s buildings, which included real-time monitoring of the main electric meter. Within just 14 days, ECC detected a $64,200 per year energy waste. Using the client’s existing systems and vendors, ECC efficiently addressed and resolved the issue at minimal cost — driving their ROI.
Looking Deeper: Lack of Data & Unified Reporting
ECC reduced the client’s costs significantly. However, existing accounting and energy management systems had failed to detect substantial waste. ECC conducted research to understand this oversight’s prevalence in similar real estate firms.
The issue lies in the differences within financial and energy accounting systems. Thus, energy management requires a unique approach, separate from financial strategies. Despite advanced accounting tools, commercial real estate companies lack the real-time data analysis and engineering needed to address energy waste effectively.
ECC’s Energy Accounting System and engineers provide a comprehensive solution for uncovering and solving hidden energy waste issues. We’re here to do what we do best: monitor energy, pinpoint waste and solve the problem permanently.
The Energy Control Company
Energy reporting: there is no coherent platform, as evidenced by the seemingly endless number of energy vendors in the marketplace, promoting assorted systems and software. Much of it was designed by computer scientists, in a lab and detached from the day to day management and building operations. Owners are often guided into this complex field in search of:
• Reducing Operating Expenses
• Promoting Green Initiatives
• Complying with EPA mandates and municipal mandates
This is evident when walking through any building and seeing many independent energy control systems such as Siemens, Johnson Controls, Carrier, etc. that don’t work in concert with each other. A universal management platform is essential to properly controlling and coordinating a building’s systems. Without a disciplined tool, building systems revert to chaos, resulting in a significant amount of wasted energy.

The EPA states $60 billion in energy is wasted every year by the commercial and industrial sectors, building owners and tenants pay for this waste. Solving this market problem, though daunting, is achievable with the correct tools. The Energy Control Company (ECC) provides an enterprise-wide accounting and control system designed for results. ECC monitors energy, pinpoints waste and resolves the problem.
Recently, ECC was engaged to address the all too common problem of high utility expenses in a commercial office building. The tenants had some difficult reconciliations and simply put were shopping for cheaper office space. Embracing the challenge of self-improvement, our client listened to the tenant’s needs, and proactively sought out a solution. They found it in ECC.
ECC had recently installed its Submetering system in the client’s buildings. Part of this package included monitoring the main building electric meter. This real-time main meter data allowed ECC to monitor the building’s energy footprint for telltale signs of waste and within 14 days a $64,200 per year problem was identified. Once pinpointing the issue, ECC oversaw the correction of the problem utilizing the client’s existing systems and vendors, costing them very little monetary investment for the payback.
Even though ECC drastically decreased the client’s operating expenses, the apparent failure of the existing accounting system and energy management system to catch such excessive waste was concerning. Curious as to how this oversight could have occurred, and continues to occur in countless other similar commercial real estate companies, ECC did some research. The bottom line is that financial accounting and energy accounting are fundamentally different systems. Therefore the approach to managing energy must differ from that of finance. Commercial real estate firms utilize state of the art accounting systems but these systems lack real-time data analysis and the detailed engineering required to solve energy waste problems.
ECC’s Energy Accounting System and engineers are the complete answer to identifying and fixing energy waste problems that building owners never knew they had. Let The Energy Control Company do what we do best: monitor energy, pinpoint waste and resolve the problem.
