Energy & Portfolio Management
AEA works to enhance the value and improve the performance of multifamily properties by designing, installing and monitoring energy management technologies that improve the bottom line for owners and managers, while also maintaining resident health, safety and comfort.
In New York, AEA offers energy analysis and performance monitoring services to building owners and managers as a Partner in NYSERDA’s Multifamily Performance Program. Our goal is to ensure that the 15% energy performance target is achieved (or exceeded) and maintained so as to maximize the Performance Incentives available from NYSERDA through that program.
AEA works with vendors of major energy management and control systems to gather data into a secure database where it can be analyzed for performance improvements. Often owners and property managers do not realize how much an underperforming system affects the bottom line. Regular feedback on building performance offers opportunities for timely response and corrective action.
Whatever type of heating system, and whatever the fuel source, AEA has the technology and IT capability to deliver a system with either wired or wireless controls that will collect and analyze data, produce reports, and monitor building performance real-time. We work with installed Energy Management Systems (EMS) to provide periodic reports that show simple conclusions and recommendations on measures that enhance property value.
AEA has conducted several state and federal research projects involving wireless-mesh control systems, demand response, real-time electrical pricing, boiler data analysis, and advanced sub metering. AEA is uniquely qualified to make cutting edge solutions developed by expert engineers available to properties.
An important component of energy efficient building operations is the monitoring of building utility and energy performance over time. In order to make informed operational decisions, AEA offers energy portfolio management services to provide key metrics to building owners, managers, and operators. AEA can provide monthly analysis and reporting of building load profiles and weather-normalized energy usage across a portfolio. AEA assists in training users to identify causes and effects of energy use variances. This enables trends to be identified and anomalies investigated and quickly remedied. Additional research and consulting is available as needed.
