Review Design and Current Operations
Interview staff to confirm energy using systems installed and current sequence of operations. Walk the building to review these systems.
Perform Functional Testing
Test each system and component and their response to changes of setpoint to confirm proper operation of building systems. Potential ECMs are identified and calculations are performed to estimate potential savings of each measure.
Follow Up and Track Implementation
Energy Efficiency is an ongoing project. The report itself does not save energy. Tracking the implementation of projects is what will save operating expenses and emissions.
Create Functional Test Forms
Create Functional Performance Test forms that will be used as a step-by-step guide through the function of each energy using system to ensure proper operation.
Create Master List of Findings
A Master List of Findings Report is created to use for identifying current issues and future projects. This report includes a table of ECMs and is used to place these in recommended order of implementation.
Celebrate Energy and Cost Savings
Also track the energy and cost savings against goals created at the beginning of the project. CELEBRATE Energy Star score targets, % reductions, and $ cost savings.
