Energy Master Planning
We assist organizations with energy benchmarking for their campuses. The benchmarking efforts provide useful information on campus energy use, and inform the determination of campus facilities suitable for ASHRAE Level II Energy Audits. We help organizations develop climate action plans designed to reduce campus greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, water-use, and waste for existing buildings and future developments.
Our team can use energy benchmarking and analysis to help clients establish design targets and evaluate the performance of their building compared to other similar building types. We use CBECs data, PNNL’s Reference Building’ EUI data, in-house data collection to meet these goals. The Green Engineer regularly assists its client to use Energy Star Portfolio manager for energy tracking, benchmarking, and data sharing for Energy Star Certifications, LEED certification, etc.
The Green Engineer has worked on large campus-wide projects to benchmark buildings by use type & size and establish performance goals.
