Our Mission

Making industrial energy efficiency happen in smart, measurable, and sustained ways.

Our project engineers, software developers, account managers, program specialists, graphic designers, HR professionals, and many more are all connected by one idea: helping the industrial sector run more efficiently by reducing energy waste and unnecessary spend.

The potential to decrease industrial energy usage is massive, and the urgency to do so has never been more real. In 2020, the industrial sector was responsible for 33% of total U.S. energy consumption. The International Energy Agency has called out energy efficiency in the industrial sector as a key tenet of its Net Zero by 2050 report. Increasingly, our industrial and utility clients are setting ambitious clean energy goals in recognition of the urgency of climate action. We are proud to be a part of the solution.

At Cascade, we value sustainability in the biggest possible sense – helping the world become a better place. We are doing our part to fight climate change, for us and for future generations.

of 650,000 typical U.S. homes

Our Goal

In 2016, we set a goal to deliver 8,000 GWh of sustained energy savings by 2028. How will we do it? By looking for new and innovative ways to drive energy efficiency and helping our customers operate more efficiently every year. Each Cascade employee plays an important role in achieving our ambitious dream.


Saving energy one drop at a time

Improving efficiency without compromising water quality

This video shares the stories of several organizations that decided to become intentional about their energy use. If you want to learn more after hearing about their experiences, please give us a call or send us an email.

Cascade delivers utility-sponsored programs like this in several states. We can also design a customized energy management services program specifically for your industry or your organization.

Achieving savings through innovation and collaboration

Working with our program partners at the Vermont Energy Investment Corporation (VEIC), Cascade launched the first Wastewater Energy Coaching (WEC) cohort in western New York in 2018 with nine water resource recovery facilities participating. This program, sponsored by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), is aimed at bringing strategic energy management (SEM) concepts and organizational awareness to the wastewater industry in New York.

NYSERDA’s program includes one half-day and five full-day workshops, full-day “treasure hunts” for each participant, energy modeling to track savings, and technical and organizational coaching and assistance.

Midway through the engagement, several of the participants came together to share their thoughts about the experience in a short video.
