  • How to decide between various competing options, how to rank them, and how to balance different metrics like energy cost, payback time, risk, and sustainability?
  • What are the operational requirements for implementing them, and how to best evaluate the different service providers?
  • Generation and storage and building management systems not just to reduce utility bills but to leverage new revenue streams.
