We start by defining the elements, policies, and procedures that will govern the program. These include applicability and reasonableness, the risks of adoption, and the requirements related to monitoring and reporting.
Our expert Energy Engineers estimate the program’s expenditures and establish savings estimates.
We oversee the development of all technical specifications for energy conservation projects and programs.
We create a written plan, centered around existing operational procedures, that serves as a guide for program procurement and implementation.
Prior to implementation, the design group finalizes engineering assessments, program costs, and design and specification activity.
We either install the energy-efficiency projects ourselves, or we partner with internal procurement groups to procure subcontracting teams.
Our construction managers provide contract administration and construction management services to ensure safety, quality, and compliance.
Throughout the construction phase, we execute day-to-day administrative functions. These include processing and documenting payment applications, tracking the program’s total performance, and updating program stakeholders.
M&V provides a detailed quantitative analysis of collected data, including precise measurements and models to ensure persistence of program benefits.
Our measurement and verification services improve the value of your program by:
Tracking the cost-effectiveness of energy projects and answering the question: How much is actually being saved over time?
Prioritizing and planning for future projects based on how previous projects performed relative to expectations.
Producing reports for the stakeholders, regulators, and staff on the overall performance of energy efficiency programs. These reports include key performance indicators (KPI) identified before program implementation.
