Navigating the broad scope of available energy auditing services can be a daunting task for owners; Whitman energy audit engineers (EAE) focus on simplifying and clarifying that task throughout the entire project. The Whitman EAE process begins with the most important first step; listening to the owners’ articulation of the project goals in an initial consultation. Whitman EAE then documents the elements of that consultation, along with an outline of the initial EAE project approach, in writing, to the owner. This focus on clarity is intended to demonstrate that the EAE team truly “heard” what was said, instilling confidence in a successful outcome at the earliest stages of the project.
At the same time, Whitman EAE will establish an “EA Project Team” by identifying, in the outline project approach, the need to solicit information from, and include participation in the project development of:
- Operating and Maintenance Staff
- Off-Site Service Contractors
- ATC/BMS Vendors
- Major Equipment OEM Representatives
- Facility Users
The Whitman EAE project approach includes an outline of anticipated field-survey and data-gathering activities. If warranted by the scope of the project, Whitman EAE can sub-contract with qualified testing and balancing agents, subject to owners’ approval, to obtain the field in-situ data commensurate with the agreed-upon level of EA services. Whitman EAE has found that, at even the most elementary EA level, a written narrative of existing operating conditions and procedures is a mission-critical element of EA services.
As early as practicable, Whitman EAE will outline such critical elements as
- Modeling from simplified manual calculation methods to rigorous computer-based analyses
- Tax incentives
- Utility Rebates including potential available rebates for energy audit services, if available
- State-funded Incentives
