About NuGreen Solutions
NuGreen is a unique New Zealand Energy Services Company (ESCo) formed by the directors of Nuvo Group and Urban Maintenance Systems, and specialist partners, to audit, finance, manage, deliver and maintain energy efficiency, LED lighting, PV Solar and other technical solutions for the built environment.
We service blue chip and government clients in the Commercial and Industrial, Retail, Hotel & Entertainment, Industrial, Healthcare, Education and Community sectors. We provide a suite of end-to-end services, delivered by in-house resources across Australia through our network of offices.
Backed by leading financial institutions, including Westpac, FlexiGroup and Clean Energy Finance Corporation we offer capital expenditure, operational expenditure or fully funded energy efficiency solutions allowing clients to lease environmental and energy efficiency upgrade projects. Under any of our financial models NuGreen can take full responsibility of the maintenance for up to 10 years, or longer as agreed with our clients.
Established to address the emerging energy and technology related issues facing New Zealand organisations we are “Product Agnostic” and have sourced the world’s best and latest technology from a range of leading suppliers.
With the ‘whole of life’ mindset entrenched in our thinking NuGreen not only manage the audit, design & installation of retrofit and new projects, we navigate clients through the complex aspects of energy efficiency, carbon management, grants, government programs, carbon trading initiatives, and carbon certificate generation and certification.
NuGreen’s unique energy efficiency and technology integration approach enables us to act as your ‘Trusted Advisor’, assessing how your asset and business can become more energy efficient through the best ‘value for money’ approach enabling your business to meet obligations with least impact.
We use the world’s best and latest technology to minimise customers’ energy consumption and cost. We are also one of the only companies to finance and lease back the equipment as well as take responsibility for maintenance. NuGreen allows clients to pay for energy efficiency projects on a monthly fee basis with the option to purchase in the future.
For a client to achieve immediate cost savings on their energy bills and meet stringent national green building codes, the client will have to consider refitting an entire commercial application. The initial capital expenditure of that project would be quite substantial and potentially cost prohibitive. This option may not always be suitable and a return on investment may not be realised for an extended period.
NuGreen replaces large upfront costs with a low monthly fee and maintenance free periods. The client receives the services and products installed with the added security and assurance of ZERO maintenance costs.
This allows for the immediate commencement of projects that would normally have large capital costs and extended payback periods. With NuGreen the concepts of payback periods are a thing of the past. NuGreen provides immediate impact and savings. No more budgeting large retrofit projects – use the current expenditure model to cover new projects.
The NuGreen engagement process is consultative. The client identifies the drivers for their engagement with NuGreen, which are often a mix of financial and operational outcomes that need review. NuGreen then tailors the engagement to focus on identifying and quantifying a solution that achieves these site-specific drivers.
Scope & Quantify
A site audit will take place to quantify the operating profile of the area and the consumption profile of the infrastructure targeted for replacement, including capturing data on legacy technologies. Once the project scope is established, NuGreen will produce an initial proposal.
Analyse & Specify
The next step is to analyse opportunities to save energy and specify replacement solutions, solution life and outcome goals. This process often involves identifying opportunities to optimise the layout of your infrastructure and achieve additional energy savings. All this data is included in a business case that can support an internal capital application process which details the savings and ROI that can be achieved through the upgrade.
NuGreen manages the delivery process on behalf of the client; partnering with our nationwide solution providers, all of these contractors are experts in their fields, whether it be Solar, PFC or other technologies. Nugreen can also partner with a client’s legacy provider as long as the provider meets NuGreen’s qualifying criteria.
Measurement & Verification
Using post project analytics, a verification process can be implemented to ensure efficiency outcomes are aligned with the business proposal.
NuGreen After Sales Support
The NuGreen business model is designed to take away the risk of ongoing maintenance after a solution is installed. NuGreen mitigates your risk to zero by providing a full on-site warranty – covering hardware, labour and on-site assessments over the warrantable period.
