C3 and SAIC Expand Strategic Industry Alliance to Deliver Fully Integrated Energy Solutions for Commercial, Industrial, and Government CustomersAlliance Spans Strategy, Design, Build, and Manage Capabilities to Accelerate Time to Value, Reduce Risk, and Minimize Costs for Customers (January 23, 2012)
MCLEAN, VA and SAN MATEO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/23/12 -- SAIC Energy, Environment & Infrastructure, LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) (NYSE: SAI), and C3, an energy and emissions management software provider, today announced a comprehensive strategic alliance to deliver fully integrated energy solutions to commercial, industrial, and government customers in North America. Building on an alliance initially formed in 2011, the extended relationship between SAIC and C3 includes joint product development, sales, marketing, and support. Under the agreement, SAIC will sell, install, and support C3 software as an integrated component of its energy services offerings.
"With revenues of $1.2 billion and more than 5,000 employees focused on our energy, environment, and infrastructure business, SAIC has decades of experience in delivering substantial savings through energy management, project financing, and project execution. C3 provides a comprehensive software solution that helps organizations to more deeply understand and better manage their energy effectiveness," said J.T. Grumski, SAIC senior vice president and business unit general manager. "The combined offering from SAIC and C3 will provide commercial, industrial, and government customers with a single source for complete, integrated energy solutions, resulting in lower cost, faster time to value, and reduced risk."
The joint solutions available from SAIC and C3 span a broad range of offerings, from strategy to project execution; each represents a combination of SAIC's extensive portfolio of energy services and C3 Energy and Emissions Management software:
- Strategic Energy Positioning: Services and software to provide market analysis, energy forecasting, financial incentives management, procurement and hedging strategies, as well as financing resources to move projects forward, including performance based contracts.
- Practical Energy Solutions: Services and software to identify, design, build, and commission energy- and emissions-related projects.
- Project Integration and Management: Services and software for aggregation, normalization, and management of energy-related data, comparative benchmarking, energy audits, analytically-driven mitigation project identification and management, verification, ROI analysis, and the associated project financing.
"An effective energy strategy requires an investment in robust software to aggregate and analyze energy data. C3's advanced energy management software platform provides an enterprise-class solution. For optimal results, highly specialized expert services to design, build, finance, and execute are a must," said Adrian Bowles, Principal Analyst with independent advisory firm Sustainable Insights Group (SIG411, LLC). "SAIC's deep expertise in energy project delivery services complements C3's software to provide an end-to-end solution. The SAIC-C3 strategic alliance represents a significant step forward in the maturation of the energy management market."
"The emerging energy management market has consisted mainly of stand-alone software applications on one side, and professional services offerings from a variety of firms on the other," said Warren Wilson, Lead Analyst, Ovum. "Combining the two in effective solutions has been expensive and time-consuming, creating a barrier to adoption. The new alliance moves the market forward by pre-integrating C3's advanced software with SAIC's expert services in design, build, financing, and project management to create end-to-end energy management solutions that lower the barriers and quickly start delivering bottom-line benefits to customers."
"Effective energy and emissions management represents one of the greatest opportunities for organizations to improve efficiency, streamline operations, and strengthen profitability," said Ed Abbo, President and CTO, C3. "Energy management, however, is currently a complex challenge that requires both depth of experience and modern technology solutions in order to fully capture the potential gains. The combination of solutions by SAIC and C3 is uniquely positioned to deliver complete, integrated energy solutions that meet customers' complex requirements and provide material financial benefits."
SAIC and C3 will be presenting their joint offering at DistribuTECH 2012 in San Antonio, January 24th-26th, in booth #916.
