offers a full range of energy engineering services that can
be tailored to meet our individual clients' needs. Our very
name is derived from and based upon what our experience and
capabilities will mean to our clients: energy cost and consumption
reductions, environmental responsibility and tangible, measurable
economic benefit. Our staff of experienced professionals possesses
a varied set of skills, including rigorous professional training
combined with a holistic understanding of how complex HVAC sub-systems
interact within a facility. These skills allow our team to generate
solutions to existing performance deficiencies that when corrected
will provide the greatest net benefit to our clients.
is not an energy services company (ESCO), but an HVAC Systems
specialty engineering firm. We can increase your business revenues
and bottom line performance by identifying energy conservation
opportunities that have been discounted, or overlooked entirely,
due to traditional engineering and contractor practices. Other
opportunities stemming from the contractor driven "low
bid" mentality of today's market place and the resulting
installation and application deficiencies can be identified
and evaluated, and usually require minimal investment to correct
to further reduce operating costs. It is imperative to understand
that any and all system deficiencies will preclude the HVAC
system operating at peak performance. Our services will guarantee
that level of performance, including:
System Analysis experts begin the optimization
process at this phase of the project, which is very much a forensic
investigation. Most if not all systems are currently performing
substandard, causing comfort delivery issues and a myriad of
associated problems: lack of capacity/redundancy, humidity control,
Indoor Air Quality (IAQ), and of course excessive utility costs.
Our collective ability to identify these performance issues
and devise solutions is a core competency of Energy-Environment-Economics
and is the essential means by which we can and will start to
optimize your facilities. Facility audits provide an accurate
baseline understanding of the existing systems and insights
into energy and operations-related cost reduction opportunities.
Commissioning services provide independent
third party technical validation that installed equipment and
systems operate as specified and will perform per the construction
documents and designer’s intent. Commissioning can be provided
in conjunction with our suite of services, as it is during the
OptimissioningSM of a system, or may be provided
as a stand-alone professional service. LEED compliance peer-to-peer
and all required field Commissioning activities are available.
– a combination of Commissioning and our exclusive
Optimal Performance Integration (OPI) techniques - services
combine our analysis, innovative design, commissioning, and
energy management acumen to obtain the desired outcome of the
absolute lowest life cycle cost of ownership with no sacrifice
of comfort. Our approaches to problem solving are driven from
the group's unique combination of analytical skills, in-depth
knowledge of building systems and the proper application of
advanced technologies designed to help facility owners and managers
minimize their HVAC-related operating costs, allocate capital
more effectively and manage associated risks
Management Systems (EMS) Consulting Services
help our clients to better understand how new and emerging technologies
can be used to manage their operating costs more effectively.
We routinely encounter EMS that are improperly applied, usually
under-utilized, and in many cases are themselves contributors
to excessive energy consumption. A detailed review of current
EMS capabilities and usage will provide energy managers with
an effective tool to maximize existing energy management capabilities.
Administration Services assure sub-contractor
compliance with the project’s usually rigid schedule and with
the construction documents' design and intent. Our B-1 licensed
field inspectors provide detailed records of all construction
activities, and quality control improves when we provide the
engineering and project oversight. Combining these activities,
as well as Commissioning and OptimissioningSM activities,
creates an environment that makes communication and problem
solving seamless, flexible and very efficient. Our staff can
deliver fast track projects from the initial assessment to full
implementation, on-budget and on-schedule.
Management and Compliance
services provide our clients with important training and tools
to help identify potentially dangerous or litigious situations
and to more effectively manage their facilities. Code compliance
and regulatory agency compliance reviews protect your business,
and environmentally responsible (GHG) business practices will
enhance your company’s portfolio and standing in industry.
concept of providing a service where compensation for their
efforts is paid for out of energy savings is not unusual.
But having the combined resources to identify problems, develop
alternative solutions, estimate the construction costs and
energy savings dollars, arrange and coordinate the work required
to fix the problems, and on occasions arrange the financial
side as well, is unusual and admirable.
