Building Energy Audits
An energy audit is an inspection survey and an analysis of energy flows for energy conservation in a building. It may include a process or system to reduce the amount of energy input into the system without negatively affecting the output. In commercial and industrial real estate, an energy audit is the first step in identifying opportunities to reduce energy expenses and carbon footptrint.
Energy & Utilities Management
Facilities Management implements a prioritized, cost-effective approach for managing energy and utilities with goals of improving reliability, saving energy, and reducing carbon footprint. As an example: Maintenance of associated infrastructure (transformers, switchgear, wiring, chillers, boilers, pumps, piping, valves, fans, ductwork, etc.)
Includes the optimization of a set of different aspects, not only the minimization of energy needs, with the consequent reduction of CO2 emissions, but also the maximization of economic efficiency, dealing with either subsidies or proper investments, depending on the specific perspective, the preservation or improvement of the indoor environmental quality, and ultimately the long term sustainability of the intervention.
Lighting & HVAC Upgrades
Lighting systems convert only a minority fraction of their electrical input into useful light output. Much of the rest is released directly as heat into the space. Therefore, any upgrade of the lighting system that reduces input wattage reduces the amount of heat that must be removed by the air cooling system. This results in air cooling energy savings during the operation of the building. In new construction, an energy-efficient lighting design can result in significant savings in the installed cost of cooling systems.
Data Center Support Services
Support services for the data center can be generally defined as technical support, which provides assistance to help solve problems related to technology products. Technical support services for data centers help to address challenges with the servers, storage, software and networking equipment that constitute a data center, or the related processes involved in managing data center equipment. Data center support services can also include installing and configuring technical equipment.
Batteries & Energy Storage
An energy storage system enables you to manage when and how your energy is going to be used.
Energy Storage Systems (ESS) have emerged as a promising, versatile technology that can provide solutions to many electric-grid challenges. Without the ability to store energy, conventional power systems have been reliant on matching supply and demand in real-time. However, with recent advances in storage technology and significant cost reductions, energy storage has become a convenient equipment.
Advanced energy storage systems enable users to store excess energy to be used at a later time. The systems are rechargeable and allow for electrochemical, mechanical, thermal and solar energy storage.
