What does a SEDAC energy assessment entail?

A SEDAC energy assessment includes a site visit and consultation. SEDAC will examine major energy-consuming building components including the building envelope, lighting, heating, ventilating, and cooling systems. An energy assessment also typically includes a utility bill analysis and benchmarking to see how your building's energy use compares to other similar buildings. 

SEDAC will provide a report with a list of recommendations that the facility should consider to save energy and money. We will identify specific opportunities for taking advantage of energy efficient technologies and building design techniques.  SEDAC staff and the participant can determine any needs for further program services.

SEDAC provides some high potential buildings with a more in-depth analysis, including a life cycle cost analysis, to identify specific cost effective energy cost reduction measures (ECRMs) and potential savings. These assessments include results and analyses that employ energy simulation software. A cost-benefit analysis for upgrades will prioritize the ECRMs identified.
