Enterprise-Level Energy Efficiency Strategies

Large corporations and real estate firms with multiple properties possess the greatest ability to benefit from energy savings that can save millions of dollars each year.  The fundamental goal for all successful corporate entities is to reach the triple bottom line. To increase profits for owners, maintain a comfortable and healthy work environment for employees and customers, and to do their part in protecting the environment. Going “Green” is no longer an option, it’s a responsibility, and most private and government entities have adopted policies that encourage the triple bottom line. At the forefront of these policies is the need to conserve and better manage energy to:

  • Increase profits and reduce operating costs
  • Enhance building occupant comfort and satisfaction
  • Reduce impact to the environment

At Vert Energy Group, we develop and deliver innovative solutions for corporations and government entities that help you achieve your corporate sustainable goals. Our professional team of energy engineers and green building experts excel at creating custom strategies that maximize the energy efficiency and increase profits across your portfolio of buildings. Whether you manage 5 or 500 properties, Vert Energy Group has the ability to identify and implement the most cost-effective energy efficiency projects at the enterprise level, based on the individual needs of each building. If you manage multiple properties and are looking for new ways to improve their performance, call Vert Energy Group at (800) 585-2690 x 101 to speak with a project manager about creating a custom Energy Management and Modernization Plan, specific to your organization’s goals and objectives.

Industries That Most Benefit From Energy Management

Typical private and public entities, with multiple locations, that often benefit the most from implementing energy management programs include:

  • Commercial Real Estate Management Companies
  • Hotels and Resorts
  • Supermarkets and Grocery Store Chains
  • Big-Box Retail
  • Government and Municipalities

Vert Energy Group’s Project Development and Implementation Strategy

Step 1: Energy Audit or Scoping Study

During the first step, we clearly define the goals and objectives of the project that serve to meet the financial and operational goals of the building. We then conduct an Energy Audit or Scoping Study of the property to identify specific needs and opportunities. The end result is a list of savings and improvement opportunities that includes a detailed financial analysis for each recommendation. Measures can include:

  • Upgrades to major equipment, such as HVAC, lighting and refrigeration;
  • Deferred maintenance and operations scheduling;
  • Equipment replacement or retrofit;
  • Installation and commissioning of new controls;
  • Retrocommissioning existing systems;
  • Sub-metering equipment;
  • And other measures that affect energy, water and operational costs.

This initial phase can include a comprehensive ASHRAE Energy Audit, or more targeted feasibility studies, needs analysis, and modernization planning. Every project is unique and we customize our approach so that the most cost effective and appropriate energy management program is developed, which aligns with the owner’s financial and operational goals.

Step 2: Engineering and Due Diligence

Following the Energy Audit or Scoping Study, we can answer any additional engineering questions, perform any necessary due diligence to verify savings and cost estimates, develop construction budgets, and prepare preliminary engineering designs/schematics. This phase is not always necessary; it depends on the project goals and objectives.

Vert Energy Group provides the building owner with enough information and level of detail to make the most educated decisions. The owner maintains full control over how much time and money is put in this due diligence phase, based on their own requirements.

Step 3: Develop Request for Proposal Package

After the project scope of work is finalized, Vert Energy Group will prepare the Request for Proposal (RFP) package. This can include design/build documents with preliminary scopes of work or complete engineered plans, designs and specifications. It also includes contractor requirements, timelines and project testing and commissioning requirements.

This RFP package is then used to solicit competitive pricing from qualified vendors and installers, in addition to any capital providers if financing is required. Vert Energy Group can make recommendations for contractors, use local talent, or use owner preferred service providers.

Step 4: Construction Management and Commissioning

In the next phase, Vert Energy Group can provide project construction management and technical oversight services to ensure the selected installers properly engineer, install, and test the new equipment and systems in accordance with contract requirements. This may also include commissioning mechanical and control systems when not provided by an installer.

Once the project is fully implemented and commissioned, Vert Energy Group will help establish long-term goals and responsibilities to ensure energy use is properly managed and equipment is maintained. Vert Energy Group will assist in developing an on-going energy management solution and train your staff to perform these functions in-house. This generally includes:

  • On-going commissioning and maintenance of equipment.
  • Tracking and reporting on monthly energy use and other utility bills.
  • Supporting on-going budgets related to energy and O&M capital projects.
