VGG is a Smart Technology based service company focused on developing sustainable projects globally. As a thought leader VGG continually provides insights on the most important trends in sustainability and business responses to environmental and social change to ensure the projects are taking advantage of what is available now and, in the future,
VGG developed a methodology for sustainable development design that focuses on applying sustainability principles through out every facet of a project from design to operational structures. To verify activities, all projects use SMARTweb™, a proprietary measurement and verification software application. SMARTweb™ provides in-depth auditing of all-natural resource activities at a device level and cross checks the activity against human behavior to provide recommendations of how to improve environmental, economic, and social performance within the designated area of assessment.
VGG In recent years has conducted extensive research into the ESCO (energy service company) energy funding and project management model and its flaws and costs to the customer
VGG has overtime developed a methodology of being able to package projects to position a project to funding. Why, because we have the innate ability, expertise and know how to clearly articulate the solution for the project which most of the project owners have real trouble doing. Their slant is mostly on technology instead of a business focused (including financing) approach.

VGG In recent years has conducted extensive research into the ESCO (energy service company) energy funding and project management model and its flaws and costs to the customer. Through our research and development, we have designed an innovative and specialty solution that now attracts some of the largest funding institutions in the U.S. and globally to participate, is able to meet impact investment mandates and attracts the best contractors to alleviate common funding problems for worldwide projects that do not have suitable resources to fund and manage large complex energy management projects. We encourage you to compare the VGG model to that of Traditional banking, On Bill finance programs, Utility demand response programs or traditional Energy Services Company (ESCO) models and you will see that you will realize more savings while creating a future proofed, smart and sustainable development in the process.
