Cost reduction (energy) with positive cash flow

In these times of great uncertainty, the decision to invest in energy cost reduction solutions can be difficult or even unfeasible.

The alternative that deserves to be explored is contracting results! This is a tested model in the following areas:

1. Distributed generation
2. Consumption and demand management
3. Migration to the deregulated power market
4. High voltage access
5. Reduction of energy consumption via "retrofit"
6. On-peak and emergency generation
7. Cogeneration

The main constraint is to accept the principle of contracting solution providers in the long term so that they can have a return on their investment considering that part of the benefits will be for the customer!
