An energy roadmap from Hanson assists organizations of all sizes with identifying, prioritizing and building an overall energy strategy, as well as meeting energy and savings goals.
Consisting of a customizable process based on an organization’s progress, the energy roadmap can forecast future energy needs, assess current consumption, establish energy reduction goals, identify energy efficiency measures and recommend persistence strategies for sustained energy savings. The roadmap can be a standalone document that is updated regularly, or it can be integrated with the organization’s overall sustainability master plan.
The identification of energy efficiency measures (EEMs) can involve performing or reviewing past energy audits, retro-commissioning and building automation system assessments. EEMs can be weighted, ranked and grouped based on client-provided criteria for capital and operational spending. Criterion can include metrics such as first cost, simple payback and reduction in energy utilization index. When complete, the energy roadmap provides the organization with a customized business plan that can be implemented immediately and used for budgeting future savings.
