AUSTIN, Texas, Feb. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Creekwood Energy Partners LLC has integrated Noesis Project Financing services offered by Noesis Energy into its energy management and consulting business. By working with Noesis' team of project finance specialists, who provide assistance with project financial analysis and working with lenders, Creekwood is able to include attractive financing options and deliver a more comprehensive solution.

After initially focusing on renewables, Creekwood broadened its service offering in 2009 to include comprehensive energy management and consulting services. "We serve as an outsourced energy management partner for mid-size companies, who depend on us to act as trusted, independent third-party advisors on their energy strategy," says Ron DeLyons, managing principal and CEO of Creekwood Energy Partners. "We evaluate their energy assets and determine how, given their current energy supply options and available financing, they can better manage their energy spend, and reduce energy consumption and environmental impacts."

New technologies offer numerous energy efficient heating, cooling, and illumination choices. At the same time, innovative tariff arrangements can subsidize renewable and distributed energy production and reward peak load reduction. Creekwood analyzes the data to determine the optimal mix of technology innovations, energy conservation measures, and available incentives that will maximize savings and deliver energy independence for its clients. By including access to financing, Creekwood can offer its clients a turnkey option.

"One of our challenges is getting the finance team comfortable with the numbers. We view Noesis as our back office for modeling and analyzing project calculations, and to provide a robust and verifiable economic basis for our recommendations," says DeLyons. "These days, it's extremely important to include financing — you need to deliver a comprehensive solution that shows how the project will be budgeted and offers off balance-sheet financing. This is where Noesis Project Financing is invaluable."

"Noesis gives Ron and his team an effective and efficient way to build financing options into every potential deal. Many times the scope of engagement with a prospect will shift, and having Noesis Project Financing services as his 'back office' gives Creekwood the flexibility and scalability to keep the project moving forward towards approval – for one flat fee," said Jason Putnam, VP of sales at Noesis Energy.

Looking ahead, DeLyons sees an opportunity to work with companies whose capital budgeting does not include energy conservation projects. "I think where Noesis will provide additional options in those situations where you're looking to finance a project for smaller companies. We're currently reviewing the possibility of offering our clients shared savings options, for example."

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management.

Service providers will w...
The term culture has had a polarizing effect among DevOps supporters. Some propose that culture change is critical for success with DevOps, but are remiss to define culture. Some talk about a DevOps culture but then reference activities that could lead to culture change and there are those that talk about culture change as a set of behaviors that need to be adopted by those in IT. There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...
There's Big Data, then there's really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data.

In her session at Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, discussed how IoT, Big D...

Fundamentally, SDN is still mostly about network plumbing. While plumbing may be useful to tinker with, what you can do with your plumbing is far more intriguing. A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and that's reasonable. But SDN opens opportunities for novel constructions in Layers 4 to 7 that solve real operational problems in data centers. "Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...

WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos.
