With the advancement in technologies the goal of an energy efficient commercial, industrial or municipal building or campus has become increasingly more realistic. Energy is one of the top five costs for a business or property. Energy consumption in the us is a $400-billion-dollar market according to the US Department of Energy.
Lighting, heating, ventilation, air conditioning, HVAC consume 70% of all building energy. These internal systems can have a dramatic impact on the amount of energy a building uses and purchases. Commercial and Industrial buildings are responsible for 45% of all greenhouse gas emissions and they waste approximately 30% of the energy they consume. The fact here is most buildings need minor, some major improvements to decrease the amount of energy used, waste and emissions. Only about 2% of all commercial buildings in the US are considered “NEW” meaning 98% of buildings or about 6 million buildings across the country lack basic improvements that can lead to a more efficient property which will reduce your energy spend. Simple things such as replacing bulbs with LED can have a dramatic impact on usage, there is a reason the LED market worldwide is approaching $166 billion dollars. These small but impactful changes have a positive impact.
When you look at an efficiency project you need to look at it as an investment in your property. Once a project has been amortized the savings continue over time. Your investment in your property will lower your energy spend, or you could do nothing and pay the utility and supplier more every month or year as buildings age and become more inefficient. Power Logix has a network of energy efficiency contractors across the country. We start with bringing a building efficiency engineer to your property for a full audit of the building, systems and services in use. This gives us a broader picture of issues that need to be addressed and where we can best invest to save money and energy in the future.

Energy ProcurementThe procurement of energy services has become increasingly more difficult to understand. There are many strategies a business can take based on the amount of usage and risk tolerance. Whether you’re a Property manager, property owner or business executive the purchasing of energy is inevitable. We have to keep the lights on right? Very few organizations have an expert on staff to navigate the complex world of energy procurement. The one aspect of energy procurement many businesses don’t understand is that energy procurement is a strategy.
Solar DevelopmentIn the 1800’s wood was the primary source of energy accounting for about 90% of energy production. As natural gas, petroleum and coal expanded use the US became less reliant on wood. Today we have solar, wind, biomass, hydropower and biofuels create alternative and renewable energy source. Many of these sources are impractical or too costly to build on a small scale. The one renewable energy source that is cost effective for a business or homeowner is Solar. In 2014 about 13% of energy in the US was generated from renewable energy sources but only 5% from Solar, making solar increasingly more attractive for business who own land or have large unobstructed rooftops. So what is Solar energy and why should I consider this as a strategy.
Demand ResponseDemand response is shifting the generation of electricity from the grid to your own local power generation facility such as a generator or multiple generators. The grid experiences occasional system emergencies or sudden surges of peak demand. Demand response is a program that allows the suppliers to lessen the burden on the grid by having contracted customers use local power generation for specified period of time. If you are a property manager, portfolio owner or building owner you usually have emergency generators for building systems such as elevators, lights etc.
