For smarter energy solutions.

Our Process

UCEP is not a retailer of products, i.e., does not represent a specific lighting, HVAC equipment, or energy management controls company. Being agnostic to manufacturers and products empowers UCEP to partner with existing equipment / systems providers to drastically improve operating efficiency and client satisfaction. In lieu of unwarranted or unjustified investments in new assets, we retro-commission and enhance the operating energy-consuming assets and systems.

The patented optimization software layers on the existing equipment and building automation controls to maintain energy and operations efficiency. This unique strategy provides clients with zero financial risk, a highly accelerated payback period, and a long-term stream of surplus operating funds. Completed projects, nearly 1000, have provided more comfortable buildings, improved Indoor Air Quality (IAQ), improved facilities operations, lower carbon footprint, and an average annual utility cost reduction of 34%. Nearly all projects have financial return of investment of 5 years or less.
