5twenty to Become Independent Energy Solutions Company

Feb 11 2014, 9:30am CST | by

Charleston, SC, February 11, 2014 --(PR.com)-- SPARC announced this week that it will spin off its energy solutions line of business, 5twenty, in order to allow it to grow as an independent energy solutions company.

“Given the development of the 5twenty platform and the opportunities the team has cultivated, it makes sense to prop 5twenty up as a stand alone entity. The company will always have its roots here at SPARC but I couldn’t be more pleased with the development of the platform and the achievements of the 5twenty team,” said SPARC CEO Eric Bowman.

5twenty is a technology-based energy solutions company that helps building owners, managers, and key stakeholders drive building efficiency through energy related cost reductions. SPARC initially developed 5twenty to deliver energy efficiency assessments for the Department of Veterans Affairs. Since then, 5twenty has expanded into the commercial market to provide a full suite of energy management solutions directly to building owners, operators, consultants, and other building services providers.

When asked about the future of 5twenty, Jeff Beck, former Product Manager with SPARC who will take a senior role in the new entity, stated "Planning for and executing more in-depth projects has historically been expensive and risky. We’re changing that. We are delivering solutions that make those deep energy savings a reality, without that expense and risk."

5twenty will continue to develop its financial analysis tools and will move forward with plans to expand cost effective solutions for planning and executing energy efficiency projects.

Here Are The Breakeven Oil Prices For America's Shale Basins

Oct 22 2014 5:23pm CDT | Source: Business Insider

The price of a barrel of light sweet crude oil has tumbled from over $100 per barrel this summer to just around $80 per barrel this week. Analysts have attributed this to slowing demand due to the decelerating global economy and higher supply in large part due to the US shale energy boom. However, the US shale basins are relatively expensive to tap. And when the price of oil falls below a certain breakeven level, fracking for oil ...
