Energy Efficiency Programs
Wadsworth Solutions specializes in improving your building performance, avoiding repairs and improving your bottom line. Reduce your facility operating expenses with Wadsworth's efficiency systems and smart energy programs. Our engineers will maintain, monitor and automate facility systems, ensuring optimal operating and energy efficiency at all times.
Energy Efficiency Programs Include:
- Energy Utilization Assessments
- Demand-side energy management
- Supply-side energy management
- Continuous commissioning
- Utilization measurement and verification
- Facility Benchmarking and Detailed Analytics
Energy Utilization Assessments
Wadsworth will provide real-time feedback on the building's energy consumption, including Electric, Gas, Water. We will also cross reference this with weather and temperature patters to provide an accurate depiction of your total energy consumption
Demand-Side Energy Management
Through our auditing process and analytical energy evaluation, our team will be able to identify key energy draws within the facility and create solutions to limit or reduce their direct consumption. By improving energy efficiency on a macro and micro scale, Wadsworth is able to reduce your overall energy consumption and your utility bill at the same time
Supply-Side Energy Management
Wadsworth analysts go beyond simple utility bill auditing, and identify facility-based power supply savings that other firms cannot. We will negotiate with utility companies on your behalf to manage the end-to-end implementation of power saving suggestions, while maintaining system reliability and integrity. As your partner, Wadsworth will reduce your supply-side costs by navigating the complex energy landscape with a data-driven approach that delivers immediate savings and rate stabilization
Retro-commissioning is a systematic process for identifying less-than-optimal performance in your facility’s equipment, lighting and control systems and making the necessary adjustments. Wadsworth analysts specialize in creating more efficient, and less expensive, ways to utilize the equipment that is already in place in your facility.
Like Retro-Commissioning, Continuous Commissioning is a technique used to evaluate and reduce less than optimal energy performance in your existing facility and equipment. Where Retro-Commissioning is a periodic process that requires regularly scheduled service, Continuous Commissioning relies on constant monitoring and software systems to receive real-time feedback and make adjustments accordingly. By using this monitoring system, facilities can be more responsive to energy demands, and update consumption needs as the system runs. This includes a review and analysis of historical energy use and operating data over time, ensuring that the facility and its systems are running at peak efficiency constantly.
Utilization Measurement and Verification
Wadsworth systems are maintained through real-time feedback on energy consumption of key building operating data, including electric, gas, bandwidth, and other forms of energy consumption in the building. We cross reference this with external temperature, humidity and weather to track energy trends over time, and plan accordingly. By using constant measurement and verification, Wadsworth's engineers are able to maximize your savings and help predict energy use and costs over time.
Once we've obtained our measurements, the next step is to rating your building's performance compared to similar buildings within your industry. Wadsworth will compare the Energy Star ratings for your building across similar facilities, and determine what can be done to bring you more in line with industry norms, if necessary. We can also compile an environmental index of floors or even individual business units to better determine operating efficiency on a micro level as well. By aligning energy consumption with benchmarking trends, we can identify potential energy issues and bring your entire facility below industry norms.
Facility Planning and Design
Wadsworth's team of system engineers and evaluators are expert at new facility planning and design. We're responsible for hundreds of complete system designs, facility engineering and development from the ground up, ensuring that your energy utilization is as efficient as possible. Let Wadsworth take the guesswork out of energy design from the earliest stages of development, avoiding costly retro-engineering on the back end. We have the experience, knowledge and experience to design and engineer complete facility operating systems, guaranteeing you save time and money over the life of your facility.
Wadsworth design and engineering professionals will create the optimal system for meet your current needs and future growth. We design the system you need today, with the ability to scale as you grow, ensuring that your energy needs never outpace your infrastructure. Our system automation and efficiency implementation will help you achieve maximum output and energy yield every day of operations
