Peregrine Energy Group wants to make it easy for building owners and managers to understand and manage their energy use. Peregrine Focus on Building Performance delivers. A tightly integrated new suite of services, Peregrine Focus on Building Performance combines equipment monitoring, sophisticated data analysis, and hands-on guidance from experts to uncover and immediately reduce the energy waste that occurs when equipment runs more than it should.
A lightweight retro-commissioning offering, this new service targets equipment schedules as a key source of energy savings. Non-intrusive monitoring dives deep into a building to identify exactly which equipment drives energy use. Straightforward scheduling change recommendations generate savings immediately. Ongoing monitoring catches new problems before they become expensive. Typical discoveries from pilot projects included buildings that start up too early, equipment that runs when the building is unoccupied, simultaneous heating and cooling, poorly programmed energy management systems, and maintenance issues.
Peregrine Focus on Building Performance is designed to make energy use more transparent to building owners and managers without overwhelming them with data. Built on a foundation of Peregrine Focus, Peregrine’s energy data analysis and reporting tool, Peregrine Focus on Building Performance collects, analyzes, and distills minute-by-minute equipment use data and interval meter data into clear reports. With these reports, building owners and managers can easily see when building equipment is running more than expected and monitor the impact of any changes to equipment use.
“It can be a real challenge to know if your building equipment runs too much,” said Peregrine CEO and Founder Paul Gromer. “But with many building owners and managers now responsible for both managing energy costs and reporting energy use, understanding equipment performance is increasingly important. We’ve designed a streamlined service that makes it easy and cost effective to figure out. We can show a facility manager how much energy each piece of equipment uses, as well as when that use exceeds what they need. Then with a few schedule changes, the energy savings are immediate and easy to track.”
Peregrine plans to target municipalities, small colleges and universities, and commercial office buildings with this new service.
