Our goal is to provide quality management services that ensure the reliability and safety of installed systems, increase the responsiveness of local jurisdictions and utilities, and enhance the growth of the renewable energy industry.
IBTS’ quality management services are both cost effective and scalable. We have conducted quality assurance (QA) and compliance monitoring for multiple agencies and state governments, including: the Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Department of Energy, and the Environmental Protection Agency, and the state governments of Louisiana, New York, North Carolina, Texas, and Virginia.
Investment-Grade Quality Management (IGQM): Through metrics, data collection, and a reduction in the variability of observations, IBTS’s IGQM delivers more consistent outcomes for consumers, lenders, utilities, and other stakeholder agencies. Our IGQM practice works with you to increase investor confidence, ensure the quality of solar photovoltaic installations, and fully exploit different grant and financial strategies.
Investor Confidence Project (ICP): IBTS is a registered quality assurance (QA) provider for the Investor Confidence Project (ICP). ICP reduces transaction costs by assembling existing standards and practices into a consistent and transparent process (commercial and multifamily energy performance protocols) that increases confidence in energy efficiency as a demand-side resource.
IBTS ensures quality installation, code compliance, and performance for specific metrics like output, orientation, and shading. Our nationwide network of inspectors and certified reviewers use advanced web-based inspection technology to ensure quick and reliable processing of project data and photographs.
Exploring All Available Grant and Financial Strategies: We identify, evaluate, prioritize, and secure available funding opportunities that support energy efficiency and renewable energy project development, including grants, tax incentives, bond instruments, energy savings performance contracts, power purchase agreements, and finance-based strategies.
