Our Services:

Demand Response Education and Training

Education & Training

Technology is only part of the solution—for buildings to be optimized, people need to be trained and software needs to be customized to drive the behavior changes that support building performance. We provide equipment training and customized continuous learning plans optimized to your technology investments. Our education and training experts are part of leading technology demonstration projects helping design and implement training standards for emerging technologies including OpenADR. We currently offers over 40 courses live and online for building operators, utilities, and energy professionals.

  • Training Standards
  • Community Outreach and Training
  • Customer Training
Building Energy Optimization

Building Energy Optimization

Smart use of data driven energy engineering can generate significant cost savings and bring increased controllability and predictability to buildings. We leverage our expertise to help clients save money by aligning their energy usage to utility tariffs before undertaking other energy efficiency upgrades or deep energy retrofits. We provide a robust analytical framework, tools and decision criteria enabling property owners, building managers and technology companies to reduce energy costs, optimize tariffs and make smart technology deployment/investment trade-offs.

  • Commissioning & retrocommissioning
  • Building energy audits (ASHRAE I & II and investment grade)
  • Energy modeling
  • Energy retrofit project management and implementation
Demand Response

Demand Response

As a demand response pioneer and early advocate for aggregated load management, we have evaluated over 3,000 commissioned and automated demand response (ADR) sites. We have a unique vantage point and base of experience having been involved in the market from early stage manual demand response and direct install to the current open, automated and standards-based approach. The result is a unique leading-edge method using data and automation to drive savings for our clients.

  • Program Policy Development
  • Technical Policy Development
  • Audit Review
  • Load-shed Functionality Testing
  • Demand Response Automation Server (DRAS) connectivity requirements development
Measurement and Verification

Measurement and Verification

We understand the role of multiple stakeholders to accelerate energy technologies and building performance. We work with program implementers to identify leverage points, real barriers to adoption and ensure that incentives are properly aligned. Our thought leadership and expertise on M&V, related-policy recommendations, smart meters/interval data analysis and over-generation risks provide critical support for leading utility and community energy implementers.

  • Codes and standards development & implementation
  • Energy efficiency measures (EEM) development
  • Research design, analysis, and reporting for market assessments and programs.
  • Economic and environment impact analyses
echnology Integration and Deployment

Technology Integration and Deployment

We partner with research institutions, community energy demonstration projects, and technology vendors interested in developing living laboratories for testing, certification, and training support. We help promising residential and commercial technologies get to market by ensuring their integration with the built and grid-connected environment. Our leadership in the field of emerging technology evaluation has enabled our team to become experts in water pumping, flywheels, phase change materials, refrigeration systems, and ADR-enabled connected devices.
