The days of work being done in individual siloes are behind us. Forward-thinking utilities know that in order to meet today's challenges—and anticipate those that lie ahead—collaboration is key.
Energy efficiency, water conservation, demand response, and other distributed energy resources ... It doesn't make sense to look at these as separate endeavors anymore—not when there's so much opportunity for synergies with grid optimization and customer engagement technologies. Today, load is being optimized for generation. And programs are being optimized for each customer's unique journey.
That's why so many utilities across the United States and Canada choose to partner with Franklin Energy to implement portfolio-level solutions. By anticipating industry trends and capitalizing on connections across different programs, we are able to provide a seamless experience for you and your customers, while providing predictability for your generation portfolio.
Franklin Energy is the only company in the industry with decades of both energy efficiency and demand response experience, a founder-led executive team with their eye firmly on the future and industry-leading customer engagement technology. What's more? Our sister company, AM Conservation Group, is the industry's leading provider of energy efficiency and water conservation products. Our unique background and integrated capabilities give us the insight and tools to build relationships and programs where others can't. We have our finger on the pulse of grid optimization and customer engagement, allowing us to design customer-centric programs, with greater savings at lower costs, that maximize performance and capacity of the distribution grid.
With our statewide portfolio programs, we unify efforts across utilities and sectors, which creates impressive synergies. Consistent branding means less consumer confusion, greater message saturation
Customer engagement is key to the success of Franklin Energy's portfolio-level programs. The traditional approach to demand side management programs has been too fragmented for customers to wrap their heads around.
We are constantly asking ourselves how we can improve your customer's experience. Do they know what demand response is, and why they should care? Do their eyes glaze over when we talk about distributed energy resources, but their ears perk up when we talk about smart thermostats, solar and battery storage? We want to change the program conversation and focus on grid optimization in a way your customers actually understand. Our coherent program design, marketing and implementation strategy reduces confusion and creates a logical journey, increasing customer engagement and satisfaction.
At Franklin Energy, we have a 40-year history of working with utilities of all sizes to maximize program results. We can find synergies that allow for collaboration within utility departments, or even between utilities across regions or entire states.
