Energy is a significant controllable operating expense for sites. At NKF Global Corporate Services (GCS), we provide advisory and project management services for clients to execute on different energy savings opportunities. Our proprietary software, the Energy Intelligence PlatformTM, serves as a comprehensive tool for utility data management, energy supply procurement, invoicing, measurement and verification, and sustainability metrics. Our goals are simple: to develop long-term partnerships and deploy successful frameworks for energy savings and sustainability implementation.

Energy Intelligence PlatformTM (EIP)
Our SaaS-based utility intelligence platform is designed to drive best-practice energy and utility management practices for single or multi-facility organizations. Our proprietary cloud-based approach utilizes invoice and data reception to create aggregated, actionable energy analytics and automates the bill-pay and energy procurement process. In addition to collection and bill-pay services, the NKF EIP provides benchmarking reports around energy usage, tracking of energy efficiency initiatives and customizable reporting to suit your business requirements. The EIP helps our clients identify the value of implementing energy conservation measures such as ENERGY STARTM scoring, facility upgrades, operational changes, and procurement strategies.

Engineering & Project Management
NKF offers clients a complete range of analysis and implementation for various energy efficiency and renewable energy initiatives.  Our team provides the entire suite of services to help clients execute their energy saving and sustainability strategies for a single site or across a global portfolio. Our services include ASHRAE Level I-III energy audit reports, retro-commissioning and turnkey project implementation of energy conservation initiatives such as efficient lighting, HVAC/mechanical performance optimization, and renewable energy solutions.  To date, NKF has deployed its engineering services to over 30 million square feet globally.

Sustainability Reporting  
NKF is a member of EPA EnergyStarTM, and the US and Canadian Green Building Councils, which gives our team access to ever-changing building certification standards implementation strategies. Our focus on sustainability and waste reduction helps clients manage their social and environmental impacts and improve operating efficiency and natural resource stewardship. NKF clients are provided LEED certification and recertification services in accordance to USGBC LEED EB O+M v4. Sustainability remains an important component of employee and stakeholder relations and disclosure can serve as a differentiator in competitive industries and foster stakeholder confidence, trust and employee loyalty. NKF adheres to the Global Reporting Initiative Standards (GRI) for comprehensive sustainability reporting.

Financing Solutions  
At NKF, we understand that upfront costs are a major barrier to implementing energy efficiency and conservation projects. An important goal of efficiency projects and programs is to help finance these upfront costs so our clients are encouraged to invest in energy improvements without breaking the bank. Through NKF’s deep network of financing partners, we enable clients to participate in savings upside from day 1 without deploying any internal resources. Our team offers financing structures to provide site owners with access to up-front capital and financing for comprehensive facility energy improvements, which are the repaid over time as energy savings are generated.

Renewable Energy Credits and Carbon Offsets
With corporates accounting for about 50 percent of global energy demand, the renewable energy and carbon markets have seen massive growth from initiatives to offset conventional grid electricity. NKF Energy and Sustainability offers unique REC and carbon products to clients who are searching for ways to offset their energy usage, and where localized or on-site sustainability solutions are a challenge. With deep relationships and expertise in the wholesale environmental markets, we are able to structure the best products tailored to our clients' sustainability goals. Our team offers various types of carbon offset classes/price structures under both the Climate Action Reserve (CAR) and the Gold Standard for verified emission reduction. Under the Green-eTM protocol, the most widely used renewable energy standard in North America, we are able to offer diverse REC products based on technology and geography.
