Energy & Portfolio Management
AEA offers energy analysis and performance monitoring services to multifamily building owners and managers. We can enhance the value and improve the performance of a building by designing, installing and monitoring energy management technologies. These technologies also improve the bottom line for owners and managers, while also maintaining residents’ health, safety and comfort.
Our goal is to ensure that a 20% improvement in energy performance is achieved and maintained in order to fully utilize the performance incentives available from NYSERDA through the Multifamily Performance Program.
We work with installed Energy Management Systems to provide periodic reports that show simple conclusions and recommendations on measures that enhance property value. Whether boiler, hot water, electric heat, wired or wireless, AEA has the IT capability to collect and analyze data, produce reports, and monitor building performance in real-time. We work with vendors of major energy management and control systems to gather relevant data into a secure database where it can be analyzed for performance improvements. Often owners and property managers do not realize how much money underperforming systems are costing their bottom line. Regular feedback on building performance offers opportunities for timely response and corrective action.
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 offer you cutting edge solutions developed by engineering firms, and help to set up partnerships with these organizations for you in order to maximize your building’s gains in energy efficiency performance.
Another important component of energy efficient building operations, is the monitoring of building utility and energy performance over time. AEA offers energy portfolio management services to provide key metrics to building owners, managers, and operators so that they are able to make informed operational decisions. These metrics can include monthly analysis and reporting of building load profiles and weather-normalized energy usage across a portfolio. AEA can also train clients to identify cause and effects of energy use variances so that trends to be identified, and anomalies investigated and quickly remedied. Additional research and consulting services are available as needed.
