Deregulation … rising costs … shifting environmental pressures. When change is the only constant, you need someone who can help you take control. To cut costs now. And to secure your energy needs for the future.
At Henneman Engineering, our advanced energy specialists can help you utilize today’s high-efficiency technologies to reduce energy consumption while maintaining or improving the quality of your working environment. From strategic energy planning to the design, construction and implementation of new, cost-saving systems, we’ve got what it takes to make your limited energy dollars go further.
With sophisticated computer modeling, you can see the savings up front. And with performance contracting, you can implement energy conservation measures with a guaranteed savings contract and use energy savings to pay for improvements with no capital outlays.
Energy alternatives with bottom-line results
From executive offices to complex foundries and sophisticated surgical suites, we can lower your energy costs, decrease maintenance and reduce costly operational man-hours.
Henneman can assist you with:
Utility Deregulation Analysis – Providing curtailment strategies, system monitoring, even the integration of complex information management systems
Rate Analysis – Checking utility bills, evaluating real-time pricing (RTP), analyzing usage and advising you on ways to alter your load profile
Energy Audit – Surveying all end-uses in the facility such as lighting, HVAC, energy management systems, manufacturing/ processing equipment and the building envelope to determine kW demand and kWh consumption, gas consumption, water consumption, operating hours and energy costs
Energy Modeling – Simulating the energy usage of your facility and comparing multiple “what if” scenarios to determine the optimum energy plan
Cogeneration Analysis – Examining the feasibility of generating your own power and recovering the heat produced for a wide variety of energy purposes
Gas Program Support – Assistance in procuring natural gas in the deregulated market, including determining daily and monthly allotments
Energy Management Systems – Consolidating and streamlining operations in order to reduce maintenance and the number of man-hours required for operation
Chilled Water Studies – Blending electric and natural gas cooling has the potential for significant cost savings, in part due to the high demand charges assessed by electric utilities during their peak summer season and low cost of gas during the cooling season
LEED Certification – Using sustainable design to improve building performance
Examples of energy conservation measures
- Motor upgrades and variable speed drives
- Electric chiller replacements/retrofits
- Indoor and outdoor lighting retrofits and replacements
- Energy management systems
- Fuel switching: electric motors and chiller equipment replaced with natural gas-fired equipment
