Energy Conservation Consulting

Energy Modeling, Energy Efficient Design and Engineering

Energy consumption is complicated. To accurately assess potential usage and implement optimized energy strategies requires mechanical and electrical engineering expertise, technical capabilities and experience. DeFeo Associates leverages its strategic alliance with the licensed LEED Accredited Professionals (LEED AP) of M& E Engineers, Inc. to provide HVAC and energy design consultation, energy modeling and LEED certification support, including:

  • Evaluating environmental considerations, building materials, energy sources and usage projections
  • Modeling energy consumption by fuel type, task (heating, cooling, lighting, ventilation, hot water) and building
  • Optimizing interactions between energy tasks (e.g., lighting vs. cooling)
  • Identifying high potentials for energy saving strategies in new or existing facilities
  • Meeting requirements for optimizing energy performance under LEED Atmosphere & Energy Credit
  • Sizing HVAC systems and implementing efficient lighting and climate systems and controls

Evaluating Energy Efficiency with Energy Audits

DeFeo Associates reviews an organization's total system - facility, practices, attitudes - for its environmental impacts, including:

  • Solid Waste Collection and Disposal
