Energent uses unique measurement tools and national indices to determine the "as-is" state of our client's energy and sustainability profile.
Starting with client input and ASHRAE Level 1 & 2 audits, Energent will generate a list of potential energy conservation measures (ECMs) projects and priorities.
Our engineers verify the operation of controls and core building equipment against design parameters and best practices, focusing attention on fixing problem areas and eliminating waste.
Energent helps its clients score their eligible buildings on a 100-point scale using a regression model of similar facilities across the country.
Demand Side Management
Energent works with clients to create a structure to prioritize energy conservation measures (ECMs) by cost, savings potential, financing options, and incentive eligibilities.
Measurement & Verification
Clients use Energent's M&V process to ensure the accuracy of incentives, continuation of rebate programs, and resilience of energy and operational cost savings.
As a trusted implementation partner, Energent makes projected savings of ECMs more dependable and can increase longevity of savings.
Often a lucrative and practical energy-reduction strategy, demand response programs can provide reward to our clients for voluntary brief reductions in energy consumption.
Reducing Greenhouse Gas (GHG) and carbon emissions is a company-wide process, and requires detailed data tracking and coordinated planning.
Emissions-reduction programs are predicated on determining current operations and comparing them to industry-accepted protocols.
Action Plan Creation
Effective plans outline the transition from analysis to action by setting appropriate reduction targets and selecting feasible methods.
Well-managed sustainability programs implement action plans and measure results while maintaining buy-in from stakeholders.
Our commercial clients understand that their buildings reflect the companies' core values – both internally to their employees and externally to their own commercial clients. Energent understands that lighting, comfort, and indoor air quality can impact productivity and job satisfaction. For many companies, an energy management or sustainability initiative can serve as a key differentiator and competitive advantage for attracting and retaining employees and customers.
Government & Institutional
Public agencies at local, state, and federal levels operate in environments of defined budget limitations and regimented protocols. This challenge is magnified when the portfolio of buildings vary in age, use and operating hours. Energent's expertise in diagnosing and making practical recommendations are key for organizations that have energy and sustainability targets, while maintaining a high level of transparency for internal and external stakeholders.
Increased reliance on technology for diagnosis, treatment and patient care creates a unique set of challenges for energy management in Hospitals. Hospitals are among America's most energy-intensive building types. The performance of building systems is key to quality patient care, employee recruitment and retention and support for the community during disasters. Energent understands the challenges of working in a 24×7 mission critical environment. Hospitals, medical campuses and ambulatory centers have very complex energy and HVAC functionality needs that can vary significantly from corridor-to- corridor, floor-to-floor, and department to department. Our team has worked with health care organizations around the country to develop successful energy management and sustainability programs.
While students, staff, faculty, and alumni define the culture of a college or university, the buildings and infrastructure of a campus are its foundation and often a source of pride. Campuses comprise a wide variety of building types, functions, and operational schedules unique to academia. Energent shines in the dynamic atmosphere of a campus and has provided leadership, implementation and educational resources for successful programs.
Budget certainty and reducing operational costs are high priorities in an environment of budget uncertainty. The characteristics of the physical learning environment impact the learning experience. Our team excels at building realistic building operational schedules that optimize comfort, indoor air quality, lighting and operating costs.
Manufacturing & Industrial
Energy efficiency improvement is an important way to reduce costs and to increase earnings, especially in times of energy price volatility. Energent has deep experience in a variety of manufacturing and industrial sectors. In some cases, an effective energy management or sustainability initiative can serve as a key differentiator or competitive advantage for attracting and retaining customers and increasing profitability.
