EMCOR Services Betlem provides energy benchmarks, energy audits and energy conservation measures, and FlexTech studies.
An energy benchmark provides customers with a unique “energy score” based on the existing performance of the facility.
Our team provides a benchmark report that compares facilities of similar use—through an energy usage index (EUI)—allowing customers to rank different facilities they own or compare theirs with others in a similar industry. The report also provides information on potential savings opportunities.
An energy audit is performed through an in-depth site visit and utility bill analysis to assess a building’s energy performance. The audit report provides customers with a list of low- or no-cost energy conservation measures (ECMs). Our energy experts calculate annual energy costs, implementation costs, and potential utility savings for each ECM. This allows customers to make educated decisions on prioritizing future projects.
ECMs often take the form of:
A FlexTech study (ASHRAE Level II and III) gives our specialists a comprehensive understanding of a facility’s operations, major equipment, and energy consumption factors, so they can provide customers with customized energy saving opportunities.
For each energy improvement project identified, a complete financial analysis is provided, including calculated annual savings, estimated or proposed implementation costs, and any available state and local utility incentives.
This information is used to calculate the simple payback period, cash flow analysis, and net present value for each project. Financing options can be included, if requested. FlexTech study results are then presented to the customer, along with proposals for each of the identified projects.
Through continuous monitoring of a facility’s energy consumption and/or its energy consuming equipment, our team can provide our customers with real time energy use data and analysis. This information helps facilities specialists manage resources and maintain optimal equipment performance.
The primary benefits of energy monitoring include:
An energy service agreement (ESA) is a regularly scheduled review and evaluation of a facility’s energy consumption. It can include utility bill monitoring, annual or semiannual benchmarks, energy assessments, and/or energy audits. The intent is to help customers reduce energy costs and/or measure and verify savings on previously installed energy projects.
Tenant Build-Out Project Highlight
When a large law firm needed to expand and modernize its offices, they called on Gibson Electric for a complete package of electrical contracting services.
During the project, we installed a complete structured-cable system, the highlight of which was a data center build-out and riser providing high-speed interconnectivity to the rest of the office suites.
The facility’s two floors worth of data center space features:
Throughout the entirety of the project, Gibson Electric maintained our client’s strict move-in schedule. The remaining 25-floor build-out included:
