Energy Audits – Identify and evaluate energy-saving opportunities
- Measure current energy consumption and energy cost. Breaks out energy consumption by users showing where and when energy is used.
- Show potential to save energy with a cost benefit analysis
- Prioritize actions for energy savings by using best practices and easily implemented solutions.
Energy audits look for savings in energy consuming systems: Pumps, Ventilation, Lighting, Compressed Air, Steam, Refrigeration, HVAC, and Vacuum. In commercial buildings HVAC and Lighting tend to produce the largest amount of energy waste.
Feasibility Studies – Develop engineering designs and specifications.
If you are looking to implement a capital intensive project to improve the energy efficiency of your building, then you want to make sure that the solution will work and provide an adequate return on investment. By performing an engineering feasibility study a trained energy efficiency engineer will evaluate your current building conditions. Identify areas that are causing the most energy waste, and maintenance program refinements. Then evaluate potential solutions for solving these problem areas for their cost savings, installation costs, maintenance costs, and their total savings over time. Then the best performing solutions can be identified and defined. By performing a feasibility study on your building, you can guarantee your energy efficiency project will both work, cover project costs, and provide significant savings. Feasibility studies are useful in arranging for project financing.
