Energy & Sustainability
From basic benchmarking to advanced procurement and resiliency strategies, energy plays a key role in the operational and financial health of buildings. A holistic approach to building energy strategy closely intertwined with the asset strategy and operational needs of your clients' properties is key to success.
Comprehensive Energy Management Solutions
For contractors looking to take their business' energy strategy to the next level without hiring a full-time in-house energy manager, Era offers part-time or retainer-based energy services as a part of our Actionable Building Consulting platform.
Performance Benchmarking & Actionable Auditing
Now required by many municipalities across the country, benchmarking building performance is not only a key first step to gauging savings opportunities in your clients' buildings but also an important process for proving the savings created by approved projects and tracking general improvement over time. We believe in actionable benchmarking and energy auditing, meant to create meaningful knowledge, enable action, and yield results...not just another binder for the bookshelf.
Improvements can come in many shapes and sizes, from minor operational improvements to major capital investments. After identifying the improvements that best suit the operational and financial needs of your client's building, we help to both demonstrate the project financials to building owners and verify energy consumption and dollar savings post-execution.
Energy expenses often account for over 30% of property operating expenses. Keeping the cost of your clients' building consumption down (however high or low it may be) is just one more key to showing that you care about the financial strength of their property. By concurrently addressing consumption, demand, and contact terms, our experts can help to create the energy procurement solution that best suits the needs, risk tolerances, and objectives of your client's property.
