  • Low to no cost tips to improve facility energy efficiency

Integrated Feasibility Studies: 

In-depth analysis of options & costs to implement measures with a facility. Measures may include:

  • Energy Efficiency (EE) – Optimize energy use & reduce consumption
  • Low Carbon Electrification (LCE) – Switch from fossil fuels to electricity
  • Demand Response (DR) – Reduce or shift energy demand on customer side & manage demand costs
