Energy Auditing

DMI's experience with a broad array of energy systems and end-users makes us well suited to find opportunities for improved energy performance and reduced operating cost at your facility. DMI provides basic "walk-through" measure identification services as well as comprehensive energy auditing to pinpoint specific areas for improvement in your facility's energy consumption.

DMI performs a walk-through of your facility to identify potential energy efficiency opportunities. As part of this effort, we provide a "first cut" approximation of savings and implementation costs for each measure which can be used to estimate simple payback periods for expected investments. This type of study is a cost-effective way to develop a preliminary list of potential projects, which serves as a valuable planning tool for both the customer and the utility company in preparing energy rebate applications.

Demand Response Audit

For large energy users, audits of demand and usage patterns help identify opportunities to shift certain operations to off-peak billing periods. This can reduce demand charges and also allow the customer to participate in specialized demand- and price-response programs offered by local utilities and the regional independant system operator (ISO-NE). These programs offer credits to the customer for reducing demand when system capacity is constrained or when commodity prices are high. We expect the role of these programs to increase as utility rate structures migrate towards a "real-time" pricing model. DMI provides the metering and analysis services to asses the value of these opportunities.

Metering and PowerMap Analysis

DMI has developed data analysis tools to assist owners and operators in understanding energy allocation and consumption issues. On-site metering and PowerMap analysis of whole or partial building energy data helps identify cost reduction opportunities.

We also focus on identifying "ghost" usage that occurs when facilities are unoccupied. In some cases, energy consumption during unoccupied periods can represent 50% or more of the annual bill! The analysis also spotlights measures that can optimize consumption within a facility's particular utility rate structure. Learn more about metering and PowerMap.
