Energy efficiency measures can reduce the operating costs of a building portfolio, and they often qualify for financial incentives from local governments and utility companies. However, since each property has a unique consumption profile, energy efficiency requires a customized approach. A specific technology or energy conservation strategy can be highly effective in some of your buildings, while achieving little or no savings in other properties in your portfolio.

Many companies don’t have an energy efficiency strategy. Energy is simply treated as another cost of doing business, not a factor that can be actively managed. There are industry sectors where energy efficiency can provide a significant competitive advantage. For example, commercial real estate projects with low energy costs are more attractive for potential tenants.

At EOS Labs we combine technical expertise with the latest design software and monitoring technology, delivering the most effective solutions for each building. Achieving energy efficiency across an entire building portfolio can pose a challenge, since the energy needs of buildings vary significantly depending on their occupancy classification. There are also sectors like oil & gas or healthcare, where buildings are subject to additional design requirements, which must also be considered for energy efficiency projects.

A typical ENERGY STAR building has the following advantages over non-certified properties:

35% Energy Savings

35% reduction of greenhouse gas emissions

Operating costs are reduced by $0.54 per square foot

Increased rental and occupancy rates

To become ENERGY STAR Certified, a building must be among the top 25% most efficient of its type. EOS Labs is an ENERGY STAR Service Partner, and we can design an energy efficiency strategy that will help you certify all eligible buildings in your portfolio.

Know the Energy Performance of Your Building Portfolio

Many companies are aware of their total energy consumption and costs, but they lack a detailed breakdown by business unit and by property. An enterprise energy efficiency strategy starts with a clearsnapshot of your consumption profile.

  • We conduct professional energy audits for existing buildings, and design reviews for projects that have not yet started construction
  • In our assessment of existing buildings, we combine technical expertise with smart energy monitoring to get a clear picture of your energy consumption.
Having a detailed breakdown of energy consumption across your entire portfolio, buildings can be ranked individually based on their performance. You can identify which properties are wasting more energy per square foot, and give them higher priority in your energy efficiency strategy. You can focus on the energy upgrades with the highest ROI as a first step, and use the savings achieved to fund subsequent projects.

Energy waste is often an indicator of other maintenance issues. For example, a building air conditioning system with an abnormally high energy consumption could be suffering from a chiller malfunction or excessive air leakage in the duct system.

Identify Cost-Effective Energy Upgrades for Each Building

Equipment manufacturers often advertise their products based on typical savings or “rules of thumb”, but actual results may differ once they are implemented in your building. Our experts can identify the energy efficiency measures that achieve the highest savings in each of your properties, maximizing ROI and shortening the payback period of building retrofits.
  • EOS Labs uses energy modeling software to analyze the interactions between prospective energy efficiency measures.
  • We can determine which energy efficiency measures achieve synergy, and which measures interfere with each other.
  • Following this approach, we determine the ideal combination of energy upgrades for each property, maximizing your savings per dollar invested upfront.
EOS Labs goes beyond a simple payback period calculation. We analyze the total ownership cost of energy efficiency measures, including their maintenance requirements over time, to identify the options that yield the highest financial returns. An energy efficiency project yields higher returns when the equipment used can be serviced easily.

By following a whole-building approach, we identify an optimal combination of energy upgrades. Traditionally, energy efficiency measures have been analyzed in isolation, and this leads to inaccurate savings projections and missed opportunities. Using energy modeling software, our experts analyze the overall performance of your building with different combinations of upgrades. We can design the ideal energy retrofit project for each building, lowering operating costs across your portfolio.
As an ENERGY STAR Service Partner, EOS Labs can implement energy efficiency strategies and best practices that have been proven in multiple building projects.

Qualify for Energy Incentive Programs and Tax Benefits

Depending on where your buildings are located, energy efficiency measures may qualify for different types of financial incentives. The programs are normally managed by local government agencies and energy companies, and you must meet certain requirements to be eligible. At EOS Labs we are familiarized with energy incentive programs across the US, and we can make sure your buildings qualify for local and federal programs.

There are many types of energy incentives, but they can be classified into several broad categories:

  • Tax incentives
  • Performance-based incentives
  • Cash Rebates
  • Low-interest and zero-interest loans

Several types of incentives may be available for the same building energy retrofit, and there are cases where their combined effect reduces upfront costs to zero.

Using Energy Efficiency to Meet Climate Mandates

Energy incentive programs are common in the US, but some state and city governments have taken a more aggressive approach. Some jurisdictions have climate mandates for building owners, with financial penalties for non-compliance. For example, a local law may restrict the combustion of certain fossil fuels in buildings, or it may establish annual emissions limits for each property.
  • An example of this is Local Law 97 of 2019 in New York City, which has emission limits for buildings that take effect from 2024 onwards.
  • Buildings covered by this law are assigned an emissions limit based on their floor area and occupancy group, and emissions over the limit are penalized at $268 per metric ton.

EOS Labs not only helps you qualify for energy incentives. If any of the buildings owned by your company are located in cities with climate mandates, we can help you comply. Some local regulations require periodic energy benchmarking or emissions reporting – our advanced energy monitoring software can help you meet these requirements.

Renewable Energy Strategy

Renewable sources can complement your energy efficiency strategy, achieving a further reduction of your operating costs. EOS Labs can analyze the feasibility of different renewable energy technologies, and identify cost-effective options for each building
Energy efficiency measures lower your operating costs through a direct reduction of your energy usage. Renewable sources achieve the same effect by replacing utility services, partially or completely. For example, a 10,000 kWh reduction in your monthly electricity consumption and 10,000 kWh of solar generation will subtract 20,000 kWh from your power bills.

EOS can help you compare different renewable energy procurement options, which include:

  • Direct purchase
  • Loan financing
  • Leasing
  • Power Purchase Agreement: Purchasing renewable energy from a third party, at a price below your current electric tariff.
