Energy audits are performed to help customers understand current and past energy use, identify opportunities for improvement and reduce energy costs. By establishing a solid baseline, we can compare the energy performance of facilities against one another, their business peers and competitors, and prioritize which facilities to focus on first for improvements. The technical assessments and audits Infrastructure Innovations performs are used to evaluate the operating performance of facility systems and equipment.
Energy audits focus on:
Analyzing building and utility data, energy bills, and installed equipment
Surveying actual operating conditions
Understanding building behavior and interactions with weather, occupancy and operating schedules
Selecting and evaluating energy conservation measures
Estimating energy savings potential
Identifying customer needs and concerns
Infrastructure Innovations offers the following energy audit and analysis services:
Energy Use Analysis
Determines which areas and specific utilities are really driving the energy consumption in a facility; can be performed during a preliminary audit.
Energy Contract Analysis
Enables Infrastructure Innovations to offer clients in deregulated states the most competitive, open market energy rates.
The American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning (ASHRAE) Energy Audits
A broad spectrum of energy studies ranging from a quick walk-through of a facility to identify major problem areas to a comprehensive analysis of the implications of alternative energy efficiency. ASHRAE has developed the following standard energy audit levels:
Energy Star Building Benchmarking
Preliminary | Small Business (ASHRAE Level I)
Comprehensive | Investment Grade (ASHRAE Level II and III)
