Portfolio

Conservation & Renewables Discount System (C&RD) and Planning, Tracking and Reporting System (PTR)

Conservation & Renewables Discount System (C&RD) and Planning, Tracking and Reporting System (PTR)
  • Type Consultant
  • Role IT Consultant
  • Client Northwest Power and Conservation Council (NWPCC) & Bonneville Power Administration (BPA)

Synergy built the C&RD database system enabling NWPCC to track energy efficiency measures with the Bonneville Power Administration (BPA), utility power customers, third party vendors, state agencies as well as not-for-profit conservation groups. Several years later, the NWPCC and BPA asked Synergy to develop the PTR, a more robust version of the C&RD, to accommodate new energy efficiency programs.

Synergy designed PTR as an e-commerce application so industry customers could view product specifications (engineering data that calculate energy savings and credits), shop for conservation measures, and then add these measures to their online shopping carts.

The PTR site uses MS SQL Server, Internet Information Service, and SSL security. Synergy has also developed offline calculators using complex MS Excel formulas and macros.
