Energy Assessments

As a full-service energy consultant, Hawks and Associates understands that improving the performance of your industrial or commercial facility means creating a comprehensive assessment of the entire building envelope, the mechanical and electrical systems, as well as the operations and maintenance procedures employed in order to identify high-impact opportunities of energy reduction.

Our energy assessments and efficiency improvement strategies follow the guidelines and standards of the Association of Energy Engineers (AEE) and the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration, and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), and consider renewable energy opportunities that will deliver proactive, long-term results.

General Building Audits (ASHRAE Level I)

Level I audits identify low-cost and no-cost recommendations that will have an immediate impact on your usage and costs. During a site visit, our team of credentialed professionals will interview facility personnel, make observations, and document the existing conditions and processes. Afterward, we’ll review the current energy bills you’ve given us and outline potential improvements.

Building Systems Audit (ASHRAE Level II)

In addition to the information garnered by the Level I assessment, the energy survey and engineering analysis included in Level II audits provide information concerning innovative measures that are specifically applicable to your facility. While identifying potential energy-saving investment opportunities, we perform life cycle costs analysis to determine the savings potential.

Capital Investment Grade Audit
(ASHRAE Level III)

Investment grade audits deliver detailed energy assessments along with recommendations and complete financial analysis for any major capital investments designed to generate maintenance and operational cost reductions.

Renewable Energy Opportunity Assessments

By combining extensive in-house engineering capabilities, the latest technology resources, and innovative, “out-of-the-box” thinking, we develop customized recommendations for our clients that explore the feasibility and quantify the project costs for any applicable, renewable energy sources, such as wind, solar, geothermal, as well as, energy recovery from manufacturing processes.
