Energy Project Scopes

While there are many ways to produce a cleaner and greener environment, reducing a building's carbon footprint is one that has a tremendous impact. Buildings in the U.S. currently account for significant primary energy consumption and 39% of carbon dioxide emissions.1 The building sector is one of the most cost-effective arenas for reducing energy consumption. Moreover, by reducing overall energy demand, improving energy efficiency in buildings can significantly reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.2

Fuel conversions (oil to natural gas) are one important way to create a cleaner environment. This eliminates pollution generated from oil burning boilers and furnaces. Building retrofits and upgrades create an opportunity to reduce energy usage – reducing the amount of heat and air-conditioning, lighting, and electricity, produced by a building directly impacts the amount of carbon dioxide and other pollutants given off into the air. Renewable energy sources offer ways to produce energy in a clean and sustainable manner – by using natural resources such as sun, wind, earth and water, we can power our buildings in a mindful way.
