About Whysaver/Synergy©

Problem:
Global Energy Shortage
01

Businesses are busy doing what they do well serving their markets. Businesses in general do not understand the energy market, much less devote the time and resources to understand it, unless this is their primary or secondary business. The result is not controlling costs of energy usage and/or not employing alternative strategies to offset or reduce that usage. Companies are now realizing that with the rising cost of energy, energy costs are affecting their bottom line.

Solution:
Using Data to Control Costs
02

Why Energy employs proprietary software and hardware systems to monitor detailed building or plant usage. Data is precise to all electrical appliances, lighting, and equipment. The data is analyzed to determine effective actions to reduce waste and costs. Proprietary energy benchmarking and predictive lifecycle modeling reveal all aspects of current and future energy profiles.

03

Why Energy provides services to both large and small businesses.  Small businesses may need an analysis of recent energy usage that identifies appropriate cost-saving options while larger organizations require ongoing detailed monitoring through a subscription service.

 

 

Why Energy Product and Service Division

Current Client Projects

Why Energy was created to address the product void for some Why Energy customers. Why Energy contracts premier installers and works directly with manufacturers to provide solar, LED, offset, and storage solutions for our clients. We have projects at the utility (solar farm) level as well as the commercial level.

Why Energy systems produce more energy per panel and have higher up-time reliability over their 25- year warranted lifetimes and beyond than industry competitors. Why Energy can also address demand charges, which are becoming a significant energy cost contributor that other companies cannot address.

Why Energy works directly with manufacturers to provide custom solutions that include LED retrofit lighting as well as solar systems and advanced energy storage solutions.

MicroGrid

A microgrid is a localized grouping of electricity sources and loads that normally operates connected to and synchronous with the traditional centralized grid (macrogrid), but can disconnect and function autonomously as physical and/or economic conditions dictate.

WhyEnergy will help plan your microgrid.

Microgrid Landscape


Turn commercial real estate into energy assets with the best energy management tool available.

Microgrids are electricity distribution systems containing loads and distributed energy resources, (such as distributed generators, storage devices, or controllable loads) that can be operated in a controlled, coordinated way either while connected to the main power network or while islanded. (Reference: Conseil international des grands réseaux électriques CIGRÉ)

MicroGrid Benefits

  • 01 It is a locally controlled system
  • 02 It can function both connected to the traditional grid (megagrid) or as a self sufficient island.

There are two major types of microgrids, those wholly on one site, akin to a traditional utility customer, which are usually called customer microgrids, true microgrids (µgrids), and ones that involve a segment of the legacy regulated grid, which are often called milligrids (mgrids).

The operation of microgrids offers distinct advantages to customers and utilities, i.e. improved energy efficiency, minimisation of overall energy consumption, reduced environmental impact, improvement of reliability of supply, network operational benefits such as loss reduction, congestion relief, voltage control, or security of supply and more cost efficient electricity infrastructure replacement. There is also a philosophical aspect, rooted in the belief that locally controlled systems are more likely to make wise balanced choices, such as between investments in efficiency and supply technologies. Microgrids can coordinate all these assets and present them to the megagrid in a manner and at a scale that is consistent with current grid operations, thereby avoiding major new investments that are needed to integrate emerging decentralized resources. Microgrids have been proposed as a novel distribution network architecture within the SmartGrids concept, capable to exploit the full benefits from the integration of large numbers of small scale distributed energy resources into low-voltage electricity distribution systems.

At the highest level, the SmartGrid has 3 components:

  • 01 Improved operation of the legacy high voltage grid, e.g. through use of synchrophasers
  • 02 Enhanced grid-customer interaction, e.g. by smart metering or real-time pricing
  • 03 New distributed entities that have not existed previously, e.g. microgrids and active distribution networks.

Note: there is no reference to the actual generation or other DER technologies involved, and in fact, many microgrids will involve a combination of resources, sometimes a quite complex one. Nor is there any guidance give on the size of microgrids. Rather the focus of the definition is on two features.
