Energy Design Assistance

We provide the most reliable, relevant energy analysis data – faster and earlier than anyone else – and get you started with utility incentives to help offset energy efficiency investments.

Your Collaborator from Day One

We meet with your team to tailor your model to your particular needs, goals, and budget – in real time. There’s no “average” building, but the earlier you model, the more you can save.

Understand Your Savings Potential

We know that our energy models predict building energy performance more reliably than anyone else’s,
because we’ve field-tested them against the actual performance of nearly 2,000 real buildings.

How Energy Design Assistance Works

  1. Step 1


    You provide schematic information about your building through our Energy Design Assistance application

  2. Step 2

    Preliminary Analysis

    Together we perform real-time evaluation of energy-efficiency measures and bundle potential whole-building strategies for further analysis

  3. Step 3

    Refined Analysis

    You determine the strategies bundle that best aligns with your project goals, from which projected energy savings and utility incentives are determined

  4. Step 4


    We confirm your project was constructed to plan and issue a final report for you and your utility provider

  5. Step 5


    Your utility provider issues incentives for the strategies implemented in your project

Enroll your project for a free energy analysis and utility incentives.
