Honeywell Invests in Energy-as-a-Service Market Leader Redaptive to Drive Private Sector Energy Contracting

Leverages complementary abilities and expertise to enable energy efficiency and sustainability upgrades with little-to-no upfront capital investment for private-sector-owned commercial buildings

ATLANTA, MARCH 29, 2023 – Honeywell (NASDAQ: HON) today announced a strategic investment in Redaptive, which will accelerate a collaboration to bring Energy-as-a-Service (EaaS) capabilities to private sector-owned commercial and industrial buildings.

This investment helps enable the rapid deployment of technologies designed to reduce carbon emissions across a large portfolio of buildings. This collaboration combines Honeywell’s experience in energy savings performance contracting (ESPC) and building controls capabilities with Redaptive’s innovative data technology and EaaS platform. It provides customers with more ways to baseline current energy usage and reduce consumption to achieve their sustainability goals – with little-to-no upfront investment.

Terms of the investment were not disclosed.

The energy-performance-contracting market and associated funding mechanisms enable energy improvements without upfront customer capital investment by using the energy savings to fund the work. This approach is well-developed in the public sector, as well as in the education and healthcare markets. However, there remains significant opportunity with private-sector commercial building owners and operators who have traditionally made the full investment in energy audits and upgrades, potentially impeding the opportunity to fully capture energy savings. 

This collaboration will create the opportunity for customers to generate meaningful energy savings in a capital efficient manner. It also offers accelerated technology deployment to upgrade existing building infrastructure, support capabilities such as on-site renewable energy assets, and deploy advanced controls software, such as Honeywell Buildings Sustainability Manager powered by Honeywell Forge. As part of the collaboration with Redaptive, Honeywell will deploy the Redaptive platform in its own facilities.

“The time to reduce the energy use and carbon impact of buildings is now,” said Del Misenheimer, president of Honeywell Building Solutions. “We must find ways to bring much-needed technologies and capabilities to many more buildings. Our work with Redaptive will enable us to help more commercial buildings deploy energy conservation projects with innovative capital deployment models and efficiently deliver asset-level analytical insights.”

With this move, Honeywell and Redaptive will enable customers to improve operational efficiency and better support sustainability goals through rapid deployments and uptime improvement, using technologies designed to lower energy use and improve asset health. Redaptive’s data technology is easy to use and deploy at scale, enabling improved energy monitoring and equipment optimization for customers.

“We are thrilled to work with Honeywell to further our shared commitment to boost sustainability efforts in commercial and industrial buildings,” said Redaptive Chief Executive Officer Arvin Vohra. “This collaboration enables us to expand our platform to support businesses with real estate holdings of all sizes to reduce carbon emissions and energy use.”

Research shows that the building and construction sector accounts for 34% of energy demand and 37% of energy and process-related CO2 emissions. The EaaS market is growing rapidly due to rising energy costs, and Redaptive is a market leader in this space. The collaboration provides the companies with access to each other’s capabilities. This includes Redaptive’s data technology, energy assessments, and efficient capital deployment to identify the energy conservation measures with the best return on investment, as well as Honeywell Buildings Sustainability Manager to monitor, control and optimize a building’s energy use and carbon emissions.

Why Achieve benefits ?

Energy as a service (EaaS) firms are revolutionizing the way businesses manage and consume energy. These innovative companies provide comprehensive energy solutions that go beyond traditional energy procurement and management. By offering a suite of services, including energy efficiency upgrades, renewable energy integration, and demand response programs, EaaS firms help businesses optimize their energy usage, reduce costs, and minimize their environmental footprint.

Partners ?

One of the key advantages of partnering with an EaaS firm is the flexibility it offers. Instead of investing in expensive infrastructure upgrades or navigating complex energy markets on their own, businesses can rely on EaaS providers to handle all aspects of their energy needs. This allows companies to focus on their core operations while benefiting from the expertise and resources of the EaaS firm. Moreover, EaaS firms often utilize advanced technology and data analytics to optimize energy usage in real-time. By monitoring energy consumption patterns and identifying areas for improvement, these companies can help businesses achieve significant energy savings without sacrificing performance or comfort. In addition to cost savings, EaaS solutions also contribute to sustainability and environmental stewardship. By implementing energy-efficient technologies and transitioning to renewable energy sources, businesses can reduce their carbon footprint and support the transition to a clean energy future. Furthermore, EaaS firms offer scalability, making them suitable for businesses of all sizes and industries. Whether it's a small retail store looking to reduce its energy bills or a large manufacturing facility aiming to improve its sustainability practices, EaaS solutions can be tailored to meet specific needs and goals. Overall, energy as a service firms are driving innovation and transformation in the energy sector, empowering businesses to become more efficient, resilient, and sustainable in the face of evolving energy challenges. With their comprehensive services and commitment to excellence, EaaS firms are poised to shape the future of energy management and pave the way for a cleaner, more sustainable world.
