Have a question?
Below is a list of our frequently asked questions to help you get started.
Skyven is an industrial decarbonization partner. We design, fund, and build thermal energy solutions specific to each unique facility. Then, we manage and maintain projects, staying involved every step of the way.
There are a lot of products available for improving energy efficiency. What products and technologies does Skyven deploy?
Skyven is not a product company but a thermal energy partner helping large manufacturing facilities decarbonize to meet climate goals. We simultaneously consider all possible solutions ranging from electrification, enhanced heat recovery, and other energy efficiency solutions. Through engineering and analysis, we deploy only those projects that align financial, operational, and environmental goals.
Skyven has developed a first-of-its-kind software modeling tool (Galileo) that quickly identifies large opportunities for clean process heat at your plant. By inputting data points for your operation, Skyven’s Galileo software will generate and share an instant project proposal with 2-5 attractive decarbonization projects, including how much carbon, energy, and money each project saves, as well as several additional considerations. This is done in hours, not months.
Skyven understands the importance of safety, quality, and throughput at your facility. We do not alter your current process. Our decarbonization technology is engineered with redundancy, helping you meet climate goals without affecting your operations.
Plant downtime can be more expensive than the savings from energy efficiency. How do you minimize plant downtime?
Our decarbonization technology is engineered with redundancy, helping you meet climate goals without affecting your operations. Skyven projects can be installed while the plant is fully operational or during an already planned event, so no additional downtime required.
Our systems are installed in parallel with your current process. Existing boilers and cooling towers remain in place as backup. If our systems are underperforming, we are incentivized to fix problems right away. We align our financial goals with your emissions reductions.
Skyven takes project responsibility alongside your team. Our certified project managers oversee all aspects of the project and bring in additional Skyven and third-party resources as necessary to partner with your team. You can focus on your operations.
Skyven understands that our system is installed in your process and plant, therefore you have absolute authority to approve the design, engineering, and choice of contractors.
Skyven structured our business around making sure that we are aligned with our customers. We bill based on the measured and verified energy delivered back into the plant – which means if the system underperforms, we make less money. If the equipment breaks it is our responsibility to fix it.
Skyven is backed by a climate change investment fund that is focused exclusively on helping companies reduce the carbon footprint of their process heat. Skyven will also secure all of the grants and incentives we possibly can for these projects to make them as attractive as we can for both of us.
The standard agreement is 10 years.
At the end of the agreement, you have a few options on how we move forward. This can all be discussed and determined during the process.
There is no catch. The Energy-as-a-Service model is a different way to implement industrial capex projects. Skyven covers all project costs, including engineering, equipment, and installation, then bills you based on the amount of measured and verified energy saved onsite.
Skyven can provide zero cost decarbonization for projects with payback periods up to 5 years.
