EE Central will replace BPA’s existing planning, tracking &reporting (PTR) system currently used by over 140 Pacific Northwest utilities and stakeholders to manage and report on their energy conservation and renewable resource activities.

EE Central’s core functionalities include an extensive common EE measures library, advanced process flow management, document management and repository, flexible reporting, and user dashboards, as well as the ability for real-time integration with external tools such as savings calculators.

BPA Energy Efficiency vice president Mike Weedall said EE Central will provide the customers with a user-friendly platform employing the latest technology to report their energy efficiency results.

"The system will help us as we work with our customers to meet energy efficiency targets included in the Northwest Power and Conservation Council’s Sixth Power Plan," Weedall said.

Nexant CTO Martin Milani said EE Central, being built on top of Nexant’s next generation TrakSmart platform, will deliver unparalleled flexibility, extensibility, interoperability, and the most advanced Energy Efficiency planning, tracking, and reporting capability in the market.

Nexant offers a energy enterprise software designed to transform utility business processes and implement smart grid and energy conservation initiatives.
