The first step in saving energy is to understand where it is being used. An energy audit accomplishes this task and provides a list of Energy Conservation Measures (ECM’s) for the owner’s review. Typically, many ECM’s will have zero or minimal cost to implement, while others may require considerable investment.

Whether your goal is to save energy costs now, minimize the impact of future price increases, reduce carbon footprint, convert to renewables, utilize onsite waste as fuel or be energy independent, it all starts with an energy audit.

Building envelope, lighting, boilers, chillers, HVAC, compressors, pumps, and motors all offer opportunities for improved energy efficiency. Power factor correction, energy management systems, waste heat recovery, increased utilization of on-site waste fuels, fuel switching and CHP (combined heat and power) are other possibilities. Utility incentive rebates are available for most of the above improvements.

On the renewable side, biomass, geothermal, solar and wind may qualify for grants, special financing and tax credits. We can assist with all of these.

Certification in Energy Star and Zero Net Energy are also available.

The Nielsen Group understands the complexities of project development. Process engineering, cost estimating, environmental, project finance, construction and operational considerations are all important, as is the evaluation and selection of partners such as vendors, contractors and architects.

We can coordinate the activities of all stakeholders to meet project deliverables including cost, schedule, scope, commissioning, startup and close out. Principle Ken Nielsen has been involved in projects ranging from a few thousand up to $250 million.
