At the heart of our work to reduce waste is the review and benchmarking of utility information. Utility benchmarking is a foundational practice for understanding the performance of your facility relative to your peers. Our approach includes collecting, analyzing, and reporting the consumption and costs associated with a facility, campus, or portfolio.
Facility Energy Audits
Why do you need an audit?
Facility energy audits form the foundation of a realistic, long-term sustainable energy plan. It’s the best way to systematically identify and develop opportunities to help reduce energy use and optimize operational practices.
How often do you need one?
Facility energy audits are a vital component of any energy management program. We recommend that you have one performed at least once every five years to prioritize capital investments in your portfolio.
What does an audit entail?
ASHRAE (American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers) defines best practices for energy audits under three levels, each with varying standards of depth.
