Analysis & Reduction

be informed; use less; do more

When it comes to the costly energy used in your buildings and infrastructure, using less saves more by reducing both energy and operating costs. The money you save can pay for the cost of an upgrade and then can be further invested into your goals and mission far into the future. This is why we evaluate energy usage in everything we do, giving you the power to make informed decisions, so you can use less and do more.

Along with benefiting 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 emissions output, lowering your overall environmental impact.

Our certified energy managers and engineers can support you as you investigate your buildings, infrastructure, or systems energy usage, identifying or validating 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. Energy projects can be planned and budgeted in coordination with existing deferred maintenance projects from a Facility Condition Assessment, maximizing economies of scale.

Energy audits and reduction planning can investigate:

  • HVAC
  • Lighting
  • Electrical equipment
  • Domestic water
  • Wastewater
  • Central utilities
  • Fuel consumption
  • Steam/Hot/Cold water distribution
  • Utility infrastructure
  • Operations

Reduce your energy use in:

  • Offices
  • Classrooms
  • Laboratories
  • Residence halls
  • Manufacturing plants
  • Warehouses
  • Central heating plants
  • Central chiller plants

Energy Audit Levels Guide

Energy audits generally follow three basic levels (ASHRAE Levels 1, 2, and 3), providing various extents of detail in information gathering and analysis. The goal is to dig deep enough to get the insight YOU need to make more informed decisions. Often, a Level I assessment is the starting point to determine if a deeper dive is warranted for a given building or system.
