The U.S. Decarbonization Goals:
In alignment with the government incentives offered to the building owners who make an effort to decarbonize, the U.S has set the following decarbonization goals:
- Net-zero emissions by 2050
- 100% clean power generation by 2035
- The 2030 Naturally Determined Contribution (NDC) 0f 50-52% reductions below 2005 levels
With a team led by some of the most reputable and sought-after executives, engineers, advisors, and analysts in the country, UCEP has a clear vision for the actionable steps that need to be taken in order to make the most significant impact in building decarbonization.
The UCEP Decarbonization Roadmap:
UCEP is the FIRST Energy Technology Solutions Company (ETSCO) that provides building owners and managers with a pathway to facility operational carbon neutrality, and/or net-zero operations carbon through:
- Energy Optimization: The first step to meeting decarbonization goals is to optimize existing infrastructure to provide optimal energy efficiency at the device, space, building, and campus level.
- Monitor Building Carbon Footprint and Output: Proactive monitoring, tracking, and management of energy usage is critical for creating an effective and sustainable decarbonization effort.
- Utility Procurement and Cost Management: The goal is to return utility dollars back into their clients budget to be reallocated towards further decarbonization measures.
- Operational Decarbonization: Energy Management as a Service (EMaaS) will provide owners and managers with a pathway toward facility operational carbon neutrality, and/or net-zero operations carbon. This is primarily achieved through the Energy Optimization element. EMaaS also includes renewable energy management, which may be onsite, off-site, utility provided, or a blend of renewal energy strategies.
