Invenergy continues to expand its sustainable energy solutions platform – today we’re proud to debut Invenergy Edge!

With broad experience delivering energy solutions to meet a wide range of customer needs, Invenergy serves leading utilities, large commercial and industrial companies, and public power agencies and has developed 150 sustainable power projects that total more than 24,000 megawatts across four continents. This track record has made us the world’s largest privately held sustainable solutions provider and gained us a reputation for unparalleled project execution. Now, after listening to what large energy consumers are asking for, we’re extending our services to new applications.

Through Invenergy Edge, we promise to simplify energy decision-making for owners of industrial facilities and electric vehicle fleets. Our turnkey energy solutions deliver cost savings, reliability and sustainability by pairing onsite energy infrastructure with offsite renewable supply and the sophisticated software that pulls it all together. These scalable energy solutions offer a simplified option in a landscape that is notoriously fragmented and difficult to navigate. Invenergy stands for energy innovation, and we are embracing that belief through Invenergy Edge by providing the right energy toolkit for our customers, optimized around their energy goals – whether those be achieving sustainability targets, enhancing reliability at critical facilities or electrifying vehicle fleets.

We have deep roots that position Invenergy Edge to be the best in the industry. From early market leadership in industrial cogeneration systems in the 1980s and 90s to large-scale renewable energy and battery installations today, our leadership team has been at the forefront of meeting the needs of large energy users. Our entrepreneurial mentality remains the same across our organization today. With one of the most experienced teams in the industry, Invenergy Edge will provide comprehensive, innovative cost-saving energy choices to new customers seeking greater control of their energy future.

Why now?

For some time, businesses have been able to tap energy innovation to reduce electricity bills, shrink carbon footprints or boost reliability, but they had to pick which of these three goals were most important to their operations at the expense of the others. Each of these three areas have reached inflection points as energy innovation gains momentum.

  1. Cost Savings: Costs for energy hardware, software and other soft costs have fallen across several major technologies, making them more accessible than ever for large energy users. For example, costs of solar generation and energy storage technologies have decreased by more than 80 percent since 2010.
  2. Sustainability: All over the globe, climate is at the forefront of conversations from corporate boardrooms to the halls of government. Since 2016, the number of companies committing to 100% renewable power has increased 88 percent year over year.
  3. Reliability: Power outages cost the U.S. economy $44 billion every year, and reliability and resilience are more in focus than ever with severe weather events and planned power shutoffs regularly making front-page news.

Inflections across these three areas are driving significant shifts in the global energy market including the increasing adoption of onsite and offsite renewable energy supply, the embrace of energy storage technology, growing electrification of transportation and new opportunities to dynamically control electricity. Yet, customers are often faced with taking a piecemeal approach to implementing these energy solutions. Many developers offer rooftop solar, behind-the-meter storage or electric vehicle charging infrastructure independently and cover limited regions – making it challenging for customers to think through the relative importance of each piece of technology and whether it meets the energy needs of its unique locations. This creates another layer of complexity for organizations that are looking for solutions across their industrial operations, at individual facilities or for fleet electrification.

Invenergy Edge looks to provide energy solutions that enable customers to achieve three goals – decrease costs, increase sustainability and increase reliability – while removing the fragmentation of energy decision-making. Never before has energy been so simple.

Our Approach

We’ve worked with energy specialists at large electricity consumers and leading utilities to solve their most complex challenges. Our technology-agnostic approach allows us to commit to the right integrated solution – not the vendor – that makes the most sense for our customers’ needs. Invenergy Edge can take advantage of Invenergy’s global scale to secure the lowest-cost technologies available on the market and deliver solutions wherever our customers have facilities. Invenergy Edge provides turnkey services from initial consultation to the design, construction, financing and operation of cost-effective projects.

Our 24/7 Invenergy Control Center allows us to monitor and manage customer assets to maximize their value in response to shifts in North America’s major electricity markets. We offer the Invenergy Edge Customer Portal to track the real-time performance of assets and provide customers with the key energy, financial and sustainability data points at their fingertips to inform operational decision-making for facilities and fleets. Our robust team of in-house experts can apply our extensive knowledge of a variety of sectors to create the perfect solution that is tailored to the needs of our customers. Whether through solar, storage, generators or fuel cells, load management, smart controls, electric vehicle (EV) infrastructure, market interaction or off-site renewables procurement provided by Invenergy’s core division, we aim to deliver all-encompassing energy solutions to ensure that each customer is equipped to take full control over their energy operations to maximize financial and sustainability benefits across their individual facilities or real estate portfolios.
