Energy Commodity Audits
The quality of our site surveys and feasibility studies requires an accurate understanding of the historical energy usage for your facilities. NORESCO analyzes this historical energy data using various industry-accepted methods, and then segregates it into various categories including weather-related energy, occupant-dependent energy, and building operating hour-dependent energy, among others. NORESCO benchmarks your facility's energy performance against comparable facilities by calculating an energy index and comparing it to thousands of similar facilities in our proprietary database.

Energy Systems and Facility Audits
Energy systems and facility audits are conducted by NORESCO's team of professional mechanical, electrical, HVAC and building control system engineers who have extensive experience in the energy field, know which efficiency improvements work, and do not waste time pursuing uneconomic improvements. NORESCO site surveys are comprehensive. We thoroughly examine each type of energy consumed at the facility and perform a comprehensive end-use analysis for interior and exterior lighting, heating, cooling, refrigeration, power, motors, drives, humidification and ventilation, among others. Combining the information on energy usage with a site assessment of existing equipment and building performance and conditions forms the basis of our energy savings assessment.

Design Engineering
Capital investments in energy efficiency and infrastructure upgrades rely heavily on the strength and quality of the engineered solution.
