Development of a facilities plan considering the impact of each energy usage component and its cost benefit to a facilities life cycle plan. The energy modeling process involves projecting the current annual and future costs of maintaining a building within its current state of improvement and upgrading a facility at its most efficient improved level.
- Gain a better understanding of a building’s potential energy performance to gauge which design or retrofit solutions are cost effective and also provide the best energy conservation options for the facility.
- Predict energy costs in advance in order to implement strategies for energy savings costs such as reducing day lighting and occupancy controls or increasing levels of insulation.
- Provides energy savings clarification allowing for design changes that exceed minimum energy codes resulting in higher building efficiency.
