Energy Assessments

Our energy assessments cover all aspects of the energy usage of commercial and industrial facilities and processes. They typically fall into one of three categories: commercial facilities, industrial facilities and industrial processes.

All energy assessments involve evaluating your energy usage and identifying areas for improvement. We provide recommendations that help you become more energy efficient and save money. We also work closely with electric utilities and can provide insight and financial analysis on the possibilities of incentives. If desired, we can conduct a formal ASHRAE Level One or Level Two energy audit.

Once energy-saving projects are identified, we can provide the following additional support:

We can conduct detailed assessments of facilities, processes and specific energy-consuming systems:

In addition to looking at your facility energy, we offer process assessments in which we analyze your entire production process from raw materials to finished goods. We work with you to break down and understand each step along the way to help you identify and take advantage of potential energy savings in all aspects of your production processes.

Transformation is a key component of process assessments. We develop a process block diagram to identify the basic steps in transforming your raw material into your final product. Understanding these steps in terms of their required energy input is useful for determining where potential process energy savings can be realized and helps answer the following questions:

Our process assessments focus on helping manufacturing sites optimize their processes to reduce energy intensity in terms of energy consumed per unit of product.

We work closely with equipment vendors, technology centers, technical trade associations and electric utilities to ensure that we can provide you with the best and most efficient manufacturing processes analysis.

We maintain a detailed Process Heating Vendor Database of over 250 process equipment vendors and participate in many trade associations to ensure that we stay up to date on manufacturing processes.

Assessments frequently lead to non-energy benefits as well, including:
