Today, computer modeling allows companies to see into the future.
As technology has advanced, complex undertakings like energy performance and measurement can be simulated by a digital model to a greater degree of accuracy. The model begins with an effort to understand how, when, and why your facilities use energy today. It’s important to include variables that drive energy consumption such as occupancy schedules and production shifts, and to develop a relationship between outside air conditions like temperature and humidity and corresponding energy consumption. We also model utility rates, which can vary considerably, so that we understand the impact timing has on what you pay for each unit of energy consumed.
Chateau experts view energy modeling as a discipline, using precision and a high level of expertise in software and building systems to produce a comprehensive picture of how an energy efficiency retrofit will change the shape, timing, and cost of your facility’s energy consumption. We’ll include smart “low and no cost” operational improvements as well to drive as much value to your capital investment opportunity as possible. Our experts can show you, with a high degree of accuracy, what your facility will look and feel like once upgrades are applied.
