Building Energy Modeling

Building energy modeling forms the technical foundation of all the work we do. We use energy models to comply with green building programs, to help our customers qualify for above-code incentive programs, to forecast future utility use and to value engineer the merits of energy-related building improvements, such as solar photovoltaic systems.
