$60,000 in yearly savings


The client encountered challenges with their 12-year-old Combined Heating and Power (CHP) system. They needed new controls to ensure efficiency, measure on-site generation output, and a notification system for system performance issues. The client focuses on value creation, operational excellence, and maximizing asset performance.

Addressing Unconsidered Needs:

Agave® Systems identified and addressed unconsidered needs, such as real-time economic reporting, tracking key performance indicators (KPIs) like system efficiency, Greenhouse Gas reduction, and financial metrics. By addressing these needs, the solution aligned with Tamarack Capital Partners’ objectives, providing a more comprehensive energy management solution that contributes to operational excellence and asset optimization.


Agave® Systems deployed their on-site EVOLUTIONTM Controller, which integrated on-site metering equipment with the cloud-based Virtual Energy Manager software package. This allowed the hotel to analyze system performance, identify low-efficiency performance, receive alerts for corrective action, and obtain economic justification for system improvements. As a result, the client achieved annual cost savings of over $60,000 through demand charge avoidance and thermal energy savings.

The Agave® Systems solution provided the client with management control of their cogeneration systems, offering real-time economic reporting on the actual utility cost of each component, and tracking KPIs and financial metrics, improving system efficiency and utility savings.
