Engineering and Technical Assistance

EXPERTISE AND QUALITY ASSURANCE

ENGINEERING SERVICES

ERS offers a broad range of engineering expertise to help utilities, energy agencies, and facility operators to implement cost-effective energy solutions. We excel at providing technical expertise and quality assurance, along with enabling utility program administrators to be trusted advisors for their most valued customers. We have completed numerous energy efficiency projects addressing a multitude of systems and technologies, including building lighting, HVAC, process controls, and distributed energy resources. ERS has developed database analysis tools for estimating the impacts of energy saving projects. Our data analytic solutions include the latest visualization tools, such as Tableau and Python.

SAMPLE PROJECTS

BQDM

CON EDISON

BROOKLYN QUEENS DEMAND MANAGEMENT (BQDM)

ERS is providing technical assistance and field measurement services to quantify 52 MW of potential peak demand savings. Con Edison of New York is deploying a mix of distributed energy resources, including energy efficiency, to reduce forecasted overloads of two of its substations. ERS measured and verified energy efficiency program impacts at the substation and aggregated energy use data to develop hourly energy savings profiles to inform the utility’s energy forecast. ERS conducted field studies at over 700 facilities and analyzed over 4,000 data loggers to develop the hourly savings estimates.

NYSERDA BATTERY STORAGE

NYSERDA

SOFT COSTS BATTERY STORAGE

For the New York Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), ERS implemented a battery storage potential assessment as part of New York’s Reforming the Energy Vision (REV) to transform electricity markets. ERS examined the current state of battery storage technologies that are feasible in behind-the-meter installations and investigated the associated business and revenue models. ERS identified near-term programmatic opportunities, mid-term regulatory opportunities, and long-term market transformation impacts.

MIT

MASSACHUSETTS INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY

STRATEGIC ENERGY MANAGEMENT

ERS helped the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) assess their building stock and establish energy savings targets in order to enter into an agreement with Eversource, formerly NSTAR, to receive incentives for energy efficiency measure implementation. ERS analyzed a variety of building consumption data and then worked with MIT and Eversource to collaboratively establish potential efficiency improvements. A quantified reduction in electrical energy consumption was determined and used to inform a customized incentive structure.

NYSERDA
CHP OUTREACH 

 

ERS provides outreach and technical assistance to promote and transform the combined heat and power (CHP) marketplace in New York. ERS developed comprehensive lead generation by leveraging business and building data sets and publicly available benchmarking data to generate data analytic models for targeting customers with the best opportunity to take advantage of on-site CHP systems.
