LORING’S ENERGY SERVICES GROUP HELPS BUILDING OWNERS IDENTIFY AND IMPLEMENT ENERGY AND COST SAVINGS OPPORTUNITIES AND REDUCE GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS
Loring provides technical assistance that allows our clients to make informed energy-related decisions for their facilities. The Energy Services Group works with building owners to identify and implement energy and cost savings opportunities and achieve mandated or discretionary greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reductions. Loring’s design engineers incorporate energy strategies that optimize the balance between the first cost, operating and maintenance costs, and any potential future energy or carbon penalties, to help identify system selections that are customized to meet each project’s unique needs. Applying life-cycle cost analysis, we review alternative energy source technologies, including solar photovoltaics, geothermal systems, fuel cells, rainwater harvesting, thermal energy storage, and combined heat and power (CHP) systems to determine if they meet Owner payback requirements.
Loring’s energy services team includes Professional Engineers, Certified Energy Managers, Certified Energy Auditors, Building Energy Assessment Professionals, Certified Building Commissioning Professionals, Certified Passive House Consultants, Distributed Generation Certified Professionals, LEED Accredited Professionals, and WELL Accredited Professionals. This team has performed energy audits, deep energy retrofits, energy master plans, feasibility studies, and retro-commissioning in over five hundred buildings, in addition to supporting hundreds of design and commissioning projects undertaken by our engineers that involved energy performance upgrades. Loring earned a Diamond Award (First Place) from ACEC NY for our energy work in New York City public buildings.
We understand building electrification technologies. Consideration for building electrification has become necessary in recent times with city, regional, and federal governments, as well as public agencies, issuing guidelines for greenhouse gas emission reductions aligning with the Paris Climate Agreement. Governments are establishing policies that will significantly penalize fossil fuel-fired plants and incentivize electrification and the contribution of renewable energy technologies in the future. We have a deep understanding of technologies that shift the energy curve by activating low-cost energy utilization like energy storage, demand response, and optimization of time-of-day use of energy when developing energy strategies for each building.
