Fortune 100 Tech CompanySince 2012, this Fortune 100 Tech company has leveraged the C3 Energy Management application to manage energy consumption for nearly 500 facilities worldwide.

This technology-intensive global company manages a diverse portfolio of buildings, from typical office buildings to very energy intensive labs and data centers. With such a disparate portfolio, the company needed a software solution to manage energy and GHG emissions, integrate and analyze sustainability and energy metrics, plus embark upon and report results from energy and emissions mitigation projects in their Corporate Social Responsibility report and through the Carbon Disclosure Project.

The company used C3 Energy Management to perform detailed interval analysis on thousands of opaque energy-consuming racks of equipment. The company then identified and analyzed energy efficiency opportunities, and managed a global portfolio of low-cost, capital-intensive energy efficiency and emissions mitigation projects. Since 2012, the enterprise has used C3 IoT to successfully manage nearly 1000 energy efficiency and onsite renewable energy projects and to track and communicate progress on energy and environmental goals.

The company’s Global Energy and Sustainability teams, property managers, and Financial, Planning, and Analysis (FP&A) executives all use C3 Energy Management. They use the application to manage the full lifecycle of energy and environmental sustainable management – from data integration to analysis and opportunity identification, through mitigation project execution, and, finally, to reporting and continuous improvement. C3 Energy Management provides a unified and automated energy and environmental sustainability management and reporting solution.

"This long-standing program is a story of digitization and results. We went from manual data input and disparate spreadsheets to cloud-based data automation and analytics, which has allowed us to shift our focus from collecting and validating data to analyzing data and implementing changes in our operations. We now have a very mature energy and sustainability program and are adding much more value to the company."
