Optimizing Energy & IEQ
Welcome to your portal for innovative and highly effective energy efficiency solutions. We invite you to learn more!
We specialize in helping our clients reach the next level of energy efficiency with innovative solutions. Typical return on investment is between 2 and 5 years [see Project Profiles].
We implement strategies like demand-based control to zero in on loads that can vary with occupancy. We apply the most innovative and cost effective sensors to match lighting, heating, and plug loads with occupancy and environmental conditions. Our solutions provide simple and intuitive dashboards that give you access, control and insight to your ongoing performance – not only energy but indoor environmental quality.
Our strong partnerships and collaboration with various industry professionals is important. We are privileged to work with some of the best industry experts in the region, including design engineers, architects, utility companies (incentives), building automation, mechanical, electrical, finance and other energy efficiency companies.
We serve a multitude of clients, ranging in size from hospitals and college campuses (including i.e., their laboratories, academic buildings, and student housing), to medium- and small-sized commercial buildings.
After a preliminary review of your facility, we determine the best applications for your needs and work closely with your current service providers to provide seamless integration. It’s never to late too start saving money and energy.

The strategies below are frequently implemented due to code requirements or specified as part of green building compliance. The question is not so much “if” the strategy apples, but rather how it is implemented for the best return on your investment.
In many cases, the most immediate and high-yielding results come from demand-based control of plug, lighting, and HVAC loads. This means controlling energy at the point of use through effective sensors.
Smart sensor applications require three critical attributes:
- Quality sensors for accurate measurement with low life cycle costs*,
- Efficient integration for control
- The ability to gather information for future improvement, ongoing energy savings, and indoor environmental validation
New energy codes call for demand-based control of energy, yet most buildings are not taking advantage of innovative sensor platforms that optimize savings and information for future improvements. This is where we come in.
Conventional single-location CO2 sensors are now obsolete. Maintaining sensor accuracy over a building’s life cycle is now far more practical and affordable with a centralized DCV platform. Ventilating large spaces in proportion to occupant and/or environmental parameters is not new. Getting it done cost effectively is. More
Only 10 -15% of small to medium sized commercial buildings have automated energy management systems to control lighting, HVAC, and plug loads. Utility savings can range from 20 to 60%. Thanks to reliable and secure wireless network systems, light switches, thermostats, and plug outlets can be easily automated to respond to occupancy. Measure and store real time power consumption. Manage peak demand and enable demand response. More
According to the US Department of Energy, A Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory study found that the leakage rates of commercial buildings exceed the ASHRAE recommended classes by an average of 20 percent. Why condition the ceiling plenum? This wastes energy and may significantly effect comfort. Now leaky ductwork can be cost effectively sealed from the inside using an aerosol sealant? More
