TimberRock Advanced Energy forms and operates Smart Energy Co-Ops that deliver clean, cost-competitive & reliable energy to the world’s most demanding energy consumers.
A Smart Energy Co-Op (SECO) is a specialty energy company established to supply electricity, natural gas and additional, demand-side energy services to a company or community of energy consumers - called Members - that require differentiated energy solutions to accomplish their mission or achieve their policy objectives.
A SECO serves as a captive energy company to its Members providing tailored, exclusive energy services that result in cleaner, more reliable energy and smaller energy bills.
SECOs are a fit for companies, institutions or a community of consumers who need their energy spend to reflect their values and who need to achieve renewable and clean energy targets through the most economic and adaptable means possible.
48% of the Fortune 500 and many of the largest municipalities and institutions in the U.S. have established renewable energy (RE) or green-house gas (GHG) emission reduction goals.
These entities are large enough to require their own captive energy company exclusively focused on meeting their unique energy needs. SECOs were created to serve this role.
SECOs are anchored by a Founding Member - such as a Fortune 500 company - and Membership can be extended to their larger ecosystem of suppliers, stakeholders and even customers. This is a win-win. Smaller suppliers, stakeholders or customers gain access to lower cost energy due to scale. Founding Members gain the benefit of helping their partners control their energy costs while also enabling the reduction of greenhouse gases across their entire value-chain.
First, all Member energy customers will be Aggregated. With volume comes lower prices due to scale.
Second, the energy being supplied to the SECO Members is Digitized, exposing its Energy DNA and carbon content. This tracking and measurement allows data-driven decision-making regarding how to reduce the carbon-intensity of energy as cost-effectively as possible.
Finally, Optimization is the process by which dirtier elements of the Energy DNA are replaced with cleaner elements. This can also include deployment of Distributed Energy Resources - like EV chargers, batteries and smart energy management systems - that reduce energy consumption. Optimization addresses both supply and demand providing the benefits of both cleaner energy and the potential for smaller energy bills.
