proACTIVE™ Energy and Carbon reduction
We live in a day and age where the world is moving faster and change has to be embraced. We have created a center that supports
the ideation process, and moving it to presentation allows us to move significantly faster then anyone else in our industry.
We say, in our company, that we need to remain curious and critical. If you are curious in business and curious in life, you
will learn, every day. If you are critical, you feel objective, enough to look at your best work and ask, can we do it better?
Every aspect of our company is constantly under, internal, critical attack, to create an even better company with better products.
We have a great deal of empathy, in our approach to design. The one thing we aspire to hear from our customers is, "I
had no idea I could save so much cost of power and yet alleviate our world, of excess carbon emissions".
Carbon credits come into play for companies that produce more than 100,000 tons of carbon dioxide a year. As of 2017, in Alberta,
Canada these companies are required to reduce emission intensity by 12%, annually. To meet this target they have 4 options:
implement renewable technology that reduces greenhouse gas emission, pay $15 per ton to a provincial technology and research fund,
purchase carbon credits from a third party, or add a DOS Proactive solution, to the existing power system, to reduce both energy cost
and carbon emissions by close to +/- 20%.
If a company produces more than 100,000 tons of carbon dioxide per year, most of the carbon comes from electricity usage.
The power companies is charging you more, due to poor power factor and thus, you are paying for excess reactive power, kvarh and
additional kwh. A company producing 100,000 tons of carbon uses 168,776,371 kwh of apparent power. At $0.12 per kwh,
this would add up to $20,253,164. With DOS Proactive installed on your existing power grid, we can reduce the carbon and power
by +/- 20%, therefore reduce power cost by $4,050,632 and reduce carbon by 20,000 tons per year.
One metric ton of carbon dioxide = One carbon tax credit
