USA: Johnson Controls is collaborating with 3Degrees, a California-based firm that helps organisations around the world achieve renewable energy and decarbonisation goals.
The new collaboration aims to accelerate building owners’ and operators’ progress toward net zero by making use of 3Degrees’ large-scale environmental commodity solutions, including Renewable Energy Certificate (REC) transactions, long-term renewable energy procurement, carbon credit portfolio management, transportation decarbonisation and climate advisory services.
“The need for global net zero solutions has never been greater, and global organisations are turning to Johnson Controls to help them achieve their goals,” said Dan Svejnar, Johnson Controls’ VP of renewable services, sustainable infrastructure.
“This collaboration with 3Degrees provides customers with market-sourced renewable energy supply services, which, together with energy efficiency, is one of the most effective paths for customers to address operational carbon emissions and achieve net zero.”
The energy supply services can be delivered as part of the comprehensive Johnson Controls OpenBlue Net Zero Buildings offering or as a stand-alone service. OpenBlue Net Zero Buildings designs, digitises, and deploys net zero solutions at any stage. The steps range from goal setting and facility-wide digitalisation to distributed energy strategies and renewable energy supply services. The solution is also available as a performance-based service where customers pay for the outcome with a fixed monthly fee to lower their inherent risk and avoid capital investments.
