Onsite energy systems today have long service lives. Whether we look to more traditional diesel and gas generators, or to newer renewable generation and battery storage systems, the expected service life of a system is typically measured in decades. With the right business case, investing in these kinds of assets also pays dividends over those decades.
Making great decisions today is impactful for a long time to come. This is part of what makes onsite power so exciting, businesses can enjoy better reliability, lower prices, and reduced emissions!
The flip-side of this opportunity for some energy users is a fear: “what if I make a mistake today. Will I be paying for it for years to come?” It is a wise question to ask, and the good news is the risk can be planned for and mitigated by using the right tools.
At VECKTA we see the echoes of this fear of mistakes often. Approaches to deploying energy projects that don’t address it often stall, leaving opportunities for value creation unrealized. Energy users feel frustrated and overwhelmed, while project developers pull out their hair wondering why clients won’t act on a good business case.
So why does this happen? We help with a lot of energy projects, from big to small and everything in between. In all of those projects the most common frustrations people experience are rooted in information asymmetry.
