Energy Efficiency & Optimization
Save money, reduce your carbon footprint and improve service quality by optimizing your energy assets.
Proven Energy Efficiency & Optimization Results
Driven by factors such as rising energy costs and environmental sustainability goals, Vicinity’s energy efficiency and optimization programs use a multi-pronged approach with skilled professionals that can deliver complete energy assessments and designs, procure utility incentives, provide or structure investments, implement the projects and validate results over time.
Energy Efficiency Assessments
By analyzing energy infrastructure performance and energy consumption, an energy efficiency assessment can identify energy conservation measures (ECM) that can generate significant cost-saving and carbon reductions.
Projects identified by an energy assessment often require capital investment. Vicinity can structure and deliver comprehensive financial solutions for our customers to eliminate or reduce capital constraints.
Utility Incentive Programs
The energy landscape is constantly changing with new or revised State and Federal utility incentive programs. Our team of experts stay up-to-date on the latest incentive programs to deliver cost-saving benefits for energy efficiency projects.
Energy Project Implementation
We take a multi-faceted approach to develop energy conservation projects through all phases, from evaluation and design to implementation. This approach delivers turnkey, performance-based projects on-time and within budget.
Why Energy Efficiency and Optimization Could be Your Energy Solution
Energy generation and utilization equipment and systems are ever-evolving. Assets that may have been cutting edge only a few years ago may now be inefficient or obsoleted by new standards.
Energy efficiency and optimization programs offer building owners the ability to improve the performance of existing infrastructure and reduce energy consumption. This results in both monetary savings and lower carbon emissions.
Vicinity seeks to identify how much energy a facility and/or campus consumes and the best options to deliver required energy savings at the lowest possible cost.
Through energy efficiency and optimization programs, the improvements typically pay for themselves within a short period of time. Efficiency and optimization projects also serve to lower energy consumption, which typically yields carbon savings. Through these programs, building owners can achieve significant economic and environmental benefits.
What Benefits Can Energy Efficiency & Optimization Offer You?
Vicinity has the expertise to implement efficiency and optimization projects from planning to investment, all the way to implementation and measurement and verification (M&V). Through decades of experience, our energy, finance, engineering and construction management experts are helping customers optimize how their facilities use energy to save money and reduce carbon emissions.
