Macquarie and Siemens form a new energy-as-a-service company | The Paper Source University
Calibrant Energy, a new Energy-as-a-Service solutions company, has been formed by Siemens Financial Services, Siemens Industry and Macquarie’s Green Investment Group (GIG).
The new company will offer onsite Energy-as-a-Service (EaaS) solutions at no up-front cost for its customers, which include corporate and industrial clients, as well as municipalities, universities, schools and hospitals.
The EaaS solutions firm will leverage technical, operating, and risk management expertise gained by its owners to enable customers to access the benefits of on-site energy systems with a new level of simplicity.
Calibrant will build onsite energy solutions for customers to achieve cost savings, cost certainty, resilience and low-cost energy grid augmentation.
The aim is to simplify the transition toward energy decarbonisation for US corporations and institutions by planning, designing, building, owning, and operating clients’ energy production and storage assets.
Technologies to be offered by the new company include solar, integrated solar-battery solutions, hybrid systems, standalone batteries, microgrids, combined heat and power, and centralised heating and cooling infrastructure upgrades.
