Energy audits are an effective approach to assess and identify opportunities for overall energy efficiency improvement. During an audit our team of licensed engineers will inventory all energy consuming systems, analyze historical energy bills, conduct an occupant survey, and more. Upon completion of the audit, all findings and recommendations are presented in a comprehensive report which includes cost estimates, financial benefits, and an analysis of available rebates and incentives for which your project qualifies. Gaia will provide a Report Card grading your systems with an A, B, C, D or F grade. We will benchmark it against similar buildings across the nation, and if efficient Gaia will manage the Energy Star Certification Process.
For projects pursuing LEED for Existing Buildings certification, you will need to benchmark past performance of your existing building. This includes not just the systems within the building, but also evaluating the usage of the people using the building - employees, residents, visitors, students, etc.
