Portfolio Energy Audits

Through our energy audit process, we help public and private sector clients identify opportunities to save thousands of dollars every year. And we continue to lead the charge nationally to implement programs for entire portfolios of existing buildings that provide greater value at less cost than programs for individual buildings. With our analytical capabilities and real-world perspective, we can identify strategies for our clients that not only work on paper but also deliver in practice.

Our energy audit services range from simple Level I ASHRAE audits to comprehensive building retrofit programs built on the framework of Level II and III audits: conducting detailed evaluations of building energy systems; developing energy-conservation measures; conducting retro-commissioning, energy modeling, and investment-grade analyses; and providing implementation assistance. As experts in the sustainable operation of existing buildings, our staff members are skilled at rigorously analyzing no-cost and low-cost operational improvements and capital retrofits for HVAC systems and controls, building envelopes, and light systems and controls.

Our comprehensive energy audits yield extensive recommendations for saving energy and money. We also can provide additional services such as preparing bid solicitation documents to assist with implementation; conducting sustainability audits including water, waste, and procurement; and developing strategies to pursue zero net energy and zero net carbon operations. Our energy audits can also be used as a solid foundation for pursuing LEED Existing Building certification.
