Company Profile

Energy@Work Inc. provides organizations with the tools, support and guidance to manage their energy and take advantage of the volatile market. Founded on international recognition, Energy@Work Inc. uses Energy Solutions to help companies succeed. Understand Right, Use Right, Buy Right.

Products/Services

  • Real Time Monitoring Real Time Monitoring • Manage price spikes • Capture “free” energy • Identify unusual consumption • Ensure building is operating at maximum efficiency Real Time Monitoring (RTM) involves monitoring and measuring energy consumption and displaying it in real time. By connecting facility managers with utility meter data, RTM provides time-relevant information, empowering operators to ensure optimal building operation. Educated decision making leads to savings in energy use and utility costs. RTM provides information on: • Demand (kW 5 minute profile) • Consumption (kWh showing the energy being used) • Price ($/kWh to help know how much you are paying and when) • Cost ($ knowing the true utility cost enables smart choices to cut waste) Utility costs can be managed with the right tools and strategies.

  • Energy Solutions Providing a corporate energy plan to better understand, use and reduce utility costs that will help improve the "triple bottom line" from; - economic prosperity - environmental performance, and - social responsibility

  • Energy Master Plan Energy Master Plan • Enhance tenant comfort while reducing utility costs • Identify specific energy efficiency measures • Build a 5 year Capital Plan to optimize energy efficiency measures implementation Energy@Work’s Custom Energy Master Plan is an all-inclusive approach to energy management designed to help our clients: • Formulate specific action plans that can generate buy-in from all relevant stakeholders; • Empower facility management and operations teams with the tools, data, and resources they need to reduce energy consumption • Maintain the leadership position of “best in class”, Triple A office facilities with respect to energy management The Energy Master Plan is continuously updated to track projects, review progress and make improvements though experience, training, peer reviews, best practices, etc. The Energy Master Plan is built on a framework that has been recognized by the Environmental Protection Agency for both Canada and the US. It has been continuously improved by means of peer reviews and the experience of implementing it in commercial and institutional space.

  • Enery Audits An energy audit is an inspection, survey and analysis of a building to identify viable and cost effective energy efficiency measures (EEM) that will reduce the energy use and operating costs of the facility. Energy@Work offers a range of audits from the preliminary or simple audit to a virtual building simulation or advanced general energy audit. Energy@Work’s energy audit: • establishes a utility baseline using monthly utility usage • evaluates energy using equipment • identifies ways to enhance operational efficiency and decrease maintenance costs • resolves occupant comfort issues • identifies economically feasible EEMs Energy@Work has three types of audits: • Preliminary • General • Virtual Building Simulation

  • Energy Efficiency Measures • Reduce energy consumption • Achieve annual cost savings • Utilize available incentives • Increase tenant comfort • Reduce carbon footprint Energy efficiency measures (EEMs) are specific projects geared towards reducing energy consumption. EEMs can be simple, cost effective projects such as an Exit light retrofit, or more complex projects like redesigning a building’s automated control system. EEMs are identified through Energy Audits and energy team meetings as part of the Energy Master Plan. Energy@Work provides its clients with support necessary to identify, evaluate, and execute EEMs. We will also work with you to capture all available incentives, and monitor each EEMs progress to ensure that they stay on track.

  • Certifications Energy@Work is committed to providing the necessary support to achieve the desired level of certification. We assist our clients with completing applications, completing energy and water audits. We help to develop plans and policies to reduce resource consumption as well as benchmarking and evaluation options. Energy@Work has assisted over 18 Million ft2 of commercial office space with obtaining BOMA BESt certifications. Why certify your building? • Acknowledgment of industry standards for environmental management • Gain recognition for energy efficiency efforts • Optimize use of finite resources • Qualify for government incentives • Demonstrate social responsibility • Increase value-add for tenants

  • Certified Measurement & Verification • Reliably determine savings of energy efficiency measures and validation of past projects • Increase energy savings through a proven process • Fulfill requirements for incentive applications for energy efficiency projects • Improve facility operations & maintenance • Manage energy budgets • Methodically and critically ensure energy efficiency project results Energy@Work employs accredited Certified Measurement & Verification Professionals (CMVP). CMVP are recognized as having the skills and knowledge required to undertake savings verification in a manner that complies with the International Performance Measurement & Verification Protocol (IPMVP). Energy@Work can design a custom M&V program for a specific retrofit or for the whole facility that will be: • Accurate • Complete • Conservative • Relevant • Transparent

  • IPMVP International Performance Measurement & Verification Protocol (IPMVP) IPMVP is a framework established to measure utility savings. • Published to provide current good M&V practice • Documents common terms and methods to evaluate performance of Energy Efficiency Measures (EEM) • Provides methods with different levels of cost and accuracy for determining savings tailored to suit specific retrofits • Specifies the contents of a Measurement & Verification Plan (M&V) • Applies to a wide variety of facilities including existing and new buildings and industrial processes. • Requires a Qualified M&V Professional Four Options are available to evaluate and quantify energy efficiency measure (EEM) savings: Option A: Retrofit Isolation – isolate the EEM’s energy use from that of the rest of the facility leaving room for assumptions, i.e. Contractor is not accountable for parameters affecting energy use and is able to assume some parameters. On-going measurement is not required. Option B: Retrofit Isolation – Option A, but accounts for aspects of the system that was retrofitted, i.e. Contractor is accountable for all aspects of energy use. On-going measurement ensures EEM remains in place. Option C: Whole facility –assesses the performance of the whole facility: retrofitted and non retrofitted systems or areas. Option C uses a global approach and must consider the size of savings from the existing utility meters to verify EEM effectiveness. Option D: Calibrated Simulation – savings are calculated from the difference in energy use between a computer simulated model that has been calibrated from the following: i) a computer simulation model of energy use of the whole facility ii) gather of real energy use data iii) calibrate’ the computer model to make it fit the real energy data iv) run the calibrated model with and without retrofits. The determination of actual energy and monetary savings will follow current best practice, as defined in IPMVP Volume I, EVO 10000-1:2007.

  • Commissioning Commissioning • Reduce utility use • Improve building performance • Test systems operations against design specifications • Reassess specifications against building’s changing needs One of the most effective tools available to large real estate owners and amangers for reducing utility use and improving building performance is to take advantage of the various forms of commissioning. There are different commissioning processes. The processes differ in approach, rigor, and results. The best process of a given property to move forward with depends on that property’s objectives and required outcomes. Although specific definitions may vary, in general there are 4 commissioning types used to assist Existing Buildings (EB): • Recommissioning (RCx) • Retro-commissioning • Monitoring-based Commissioning (MBCx) • Continuous Commissioning TM (CC) Energy@Work provides the option best suited for the needs of each individual client's building.
