ABI Advantage LLC ("ABI") offers comprehensive energy management information services (EMIS), including Utility Bill Management (UBM) and Submetering services, such as tenant billing, to submeter individual units and equipment, improve overall performance, and help optimize and reduce your utility costs. With our expertise, you can better manage your energy resources and create a more efficient and cost-effective energy plan for your business.

Energy Management Information Systems (EMIS) consist of powerful tools to help you make decisions about your building's mechanical and electrical equipment, water usage, and indoor air quality (IAQ) in your space. You may want to evaluate the past, the present or predict the future of your space's commodity use or the functionality of your equipment, meet the Building Energy Performance Standards (BEPS) for your area, exploring your company's environmental impact to meet Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) criteria, or have some of your own ideas you want to see implemented to monitor performance. 

ABI recognizes not all systems provide information in the way you need it or can best utilize it; therefore, ABI will work with you to find the best solution or custom approach to meet your needs.  Whether you are just looking for analytics software or a fully hosted solution (such as our Analytics Based Commissioning Service, ABCx™ Service) or a mix of the two or more, ABI is here to help.
