Ken Scheepers to Spearhead Delivery of Energy Advisory and Submetering
Services Throughout the Southwest
utiliVisor, a leading provider of energy monitoring and submetering
services, has opened an office in Dallas to provide comprehensive energy
advisory services in Texas and throughout the Southwest, in partnership
with TD Industries.
The new utiliVisor operations will be managed by Ken Scheepers, a former
Building Performance Manager at TD Industries in Dallas, who has been
named Director of Energy Advisory Services at utiliVisor Southwest.
“utiliVisor and TD Industries have a long track record of providing
advisory services that enable our clients to realize significant energy
savings,” Mr. Scheepers pointed out. “We have saved such customers as
Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas State University at San Marcos,
and the University of Texas at Arlington millions of dollars in
operational savings over the past few years.”
utiliVisor Southwest offers both energy plant monitoring services and
energy submetering and billing. The company provides cloud-based
monitoring systems that enable building owners to optimize chiller
plants and district cooling and heating systems, resulting in 12- 20
percent energy savings.
Built on open standards, the utiliVisor platform collects, monitors and
interprets energy use in real-time while monetizing system operations.
Customized analysis and analytics combined with experienced engineering
experts provide insights and actionable recommendations to help maximize
efficiency and minimize capital expenditures.
“utiliVisor believes in local control at the plant and doesn’t control
from the cloud,” Mr. Scheepers explained. “And our services are easily
adaptable to all facilities because utiliVisor is product and technology
According to Mr. Scheepers, the utiliVisor technical platform is the key
element toward enabling college and university campuses, hospitals and
commercial buildings to achieve their energy efficiency goals. “With end
to end energy monitoring and performance analysis performed by
experienced engineers interpreting the fact-based data, we are able to
track utilities from the point of generation at each plant through to
consumption,” he said. “This enables utiliVisor engineers to create
energy savings at every critical point of a facility’s utility system,
and has resulted in over $8.8 million savings in Texas over the past six
and one-half years, with minimal capital investment."
utiliVisor Southwest also provides energy metering services that ensure
the accuracy of submetering and utility billing in campus settings and
for large commercial properties. “Our energy metering services make it
easy to manage and measure utility consumption for cost recovery and to
provide reliable and accurate billing for building tenants,” Mr.
Scheepers noted. “For example, on behalf of Brookfield Property
Partners’ 2 and 3 Allen Center buildings in Houston, the utiliVisor
system is providing the latest submetering and utility accounting
technologies, offering a customizable, expandable and dependable
platform for the accurate analysis and allocation of all tenant utility
Mr. Scheepers, who was honored in 2015 by the Dallas Business Journal as
a Who’s Who in Energy Services, has 45 years of experience as an energy
advisor. At TD Industries, he was responsible for implementing energy
efficiency projects at Texas Woman’s University (TWU), George Bush
