Energy Efficiency Consultants, LLC introduces a 15-Step Comprehensive Energy Efficiency Process that will transform the energy use in energy intensive facilities. Each step will affect changes made from subsequent stages thus setting the overall process up for the greatest energy and cost savings possible.

This statistic as published by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is staggering. If your business is in manufacturing the energy wasted can be significantly more due to the waste heat generated.

A well designed, staged comprehensive Energy Efficiency Process is essential for obtaining energy reduction goals. Similar to the approach as recommended by the EPA's Energy Star Program which accounts for the interactions of all the energy flows in a facility. Each stage includes changes that will affect the upgrades performed in subsequent stages, thus setting the overall process up for the greatest energy and cost savings possible. Perfect examples are how the lighting affects the HVAC&R load and how natural light affects the lighting and HVAC&R systems. Improper ventilation affects work productivity, heating, cooling and motor efficiency. Air Infiltration issues that affect the HVAC systems.

How do business owner's or a non-profits address the issue without breaking the bank. There are many cost-effective energy waste reduction strategies that can be implemented. In some cases, there are no-cost energy conservation measures (ECM) and low-cost energy efficiency measures (EEM) that can be implemented immediately that will reduce energy use. In other cases, there are modifications, upgrades, operational and optimization strategies that will improve the efficiency of the mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems (MEP).

Every commercial building can use a re-commissioning process to unlock the energy saving potential. However, energy intensive facilities will benefit most. Whereas, the mechanical systems rarely shut down because of clientele or production such as resort hotels, manufacturing, healthcare facilities or municipalities.

As a business, if you identify as a high energy user one can benefit from our services. Energy Efficiency Consultants, LLC is passionate about energy waste and committed to achieve the best results from buying your energy, to how it's used and how to fix what is using too much. Nationwide services.
