Energy Audits, Analysis, & Reduction
be informed; use less; do more
When it comes to the costly energy used in your buildings and infrastructure, using less saves operating dollars and allows you to further invest those savings into your goals and mission far into the future once, project costs are recouped. This is why we evaluate energy usage in everything we do, giving you the power to make informed decisions and do more.
Along with benefitting your bottom line, the greenest energy is energy that isn’t used or needed. As most energy production creates carbon dioxide emissions, using less energy reduces your carbon footprint, lowering your overall environmental impact.
Through our energy assessment, auditing, and analysis you receive an energy reduction plan. Our certified energy managers and engineers complete a thorough investigation of your buildings, infrastructure, or systems energy usage, and identify energy conservation measures (ECMs) or energy projects. ECM project costs and savings are used to calculate payback periods; projects are then prioritized to minimize your payback periods to start earning returns on your energy investments sooner. Those energy projects are then presented in your energy reduction plan for implementation.
Your energy project progress can be easily tracked and reported via our energy database, which is customized to help you achieve your energy goals, by allowing you to make more informed decisions. ECMs also calculate carbon emission reductions; coupled with existing deferred maintenance projects from a facility condition assessment to plan and budget maintenance and energy projects within a single system, maximizing economies of scale.
