Energy Audits involve assessing a building’s current energy usage, energy using equipment, and building conditions that may cause excessive energy consumption. Once a building’s energy consumption is evaluated, projects that can reduce the energy consumption or Energy Efficiency Measures (“EEMs”) can be identified. The goal of the energy audit is to provide information on EEMs that is detailed enough to allow business owners and managers to make decisions based on their current and future business goals. Implement EEMs are based on need, budgets, investment return criteria, green branding goals, and sustainability goals.

For each recommended energy efficiency measure, we provide the following:

  • Scope of Work
  • Estimated Install Cost
  • Energy and Cost Savings Tables
  • Related Rebates and Incentives
  • Simple Payback Period
  • Greenhouse Gas Emissions Savings
  • Impact on Energy Star Rating

Benefits to energy efficiency include:

  • Increased asset value through reducing operating costs and increased revenue
  • Hedge against future rising energy costs
  • Increase building occupant satisfaction, productivity and safety
  • Quantify future building value and operating income during building acquisition due diligence
  • Meet and exceed capital investment return criteria
  • Comply with energy efficiency disclosure laws and regulations
  • Promote environmental stewardship by reducing harmful greenhouse gas emissions
