VISN 21 ASHRAE Level 1 Energy Assessments

This project included energy audits to existing healthcare facilities for the purpose of establishing baselines for and altering Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning (HVAC) and related energy-using systems, and their associated control systems.VA San Francisco

The Davenergy audit team evaluated seven large VA Medical Centers totaling over 4.4 Million square feet. The energy assessment included a building-by-building evaluation of existing conditions encompassing all major equipment/system types. Cost effective energy and water conservation measures (collectively referred to as ECMs) were identified that reduce utility consumption, costs, and the greenhouse gas (GHG) footprint of the subject Veterans Affairs (VA) campus. The scope required the quantification of utility and operational savings, cost to implement, and the simple payback of each measure.

Veteran Affairs Greater Los Angeles Energy Assessment

The Davenergy audit team evaluated three VA medical campuses encompassing 5,039,000 SF at VAMC West Los Angeles, VAMC Sepulveda and Los Angeles Acute Care Clinic in VISN 22. The energy assessment included a building-by-building evaluation of existing conditions encompassing all major equipment/system types.VA Los Angeles

Cost effective energy and water conservation measures (collectively referred to as ECMs) were identified that reduce utility consumption, costs, and the greenhouse gas (GHG) footprint of the subject Veterans Affairs (VA) campuses. The scope required the quantification of utility and operational savings, cost to implement, and the simple payback of each measure.

Veteran Affairs Medical Center Long Beach Energy Assessment

The Davenergy audit team evaluated forty-seven buildings encompassing 1,359,753 SF at VAMC Long Beach in VISN 22, the subject facility for this report. The energy assessment included a building-by-building evaluation of existing conditions encompassing all major equipment/system types. VA Long Beach

Cost effective energy and water conservation measures (collectively referred to as ECMs) were identified that reduce utility consumption, costs, and the greenhouse gas (GHG) footprint of the subject Veterans Affairs (VA) campus. The scope required the quantification of utility and operational savings, cost to implement, and the simple payback of each measure.

VISN 3 ASHRAE Level 1 Energy Assessments

This project included energy audits to existing healthcare facilities for the purpose of establishing baselines for and altering Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning (HVAC) and related energy-using systems, and their associated control systems.US Department of Veteran Affairs

The Davenergy audit team evaluated eight large VA Medical Centers in New York and New Jersey totaling over 8.6 Million square feet. The energy assessment included a building-by-building evaluation of existing conditions encompassing all major equipment/system types. Cost effective energy and water conservation measures (collectively referred to as ECMs) were identified that reduce utility consumption, costs, and the greenhouse gas (GHG) footprint of the subject Veterans Affairs (VA) campus. The scope required the quantification of utility and operational savings, cost to implement, and the simple payback of each measure.

US Department of Agriculture – Logan, Utah – Energy Assessments

Davenergy Solutions performed ASHRAE Level 1 energy assessments on two major and several minor buildings encompassing 59,630 square feet at USDA – ARS Logan.  The energy assessment included a building-by-building evaluation of existing conditions encompassing the air handling, lighting and other energy consuming equipment in the facility.  Energy and water conservation measures (collectively referred to as ECMs) were identified that reduce utility consumption, and costs of operating the subject USDA facility.  The scope requires the quantification of utility savings, cost to implement, and the simple payback of each measure.Dept of Agriculture

During the on-site inspection all the relevant information on the existing building conditions was collected. This on-site assessment included reviewing building and equipment data, interviewing site personnel, observing energy related equipment operation, and conducting some limited site measurements.

Mt. Morris Dam, Energy Audits

This report presents the results of an ASHRAE Level II building energy assessment and analysis for the United States Army Corps of Engineers’ (USACE) Mount Morris Dam Facility in Mount Morris, NY. The Mount Morris site consists of five buildings and a flood control superstructure initially built in the 1950’s. The primary purpose of the dam is flood control, but the Mt Morris location also provides public access for education and outreach programs hosted in the visitor’s center.Mt Morris Dam

Davenergy Solutions conducted the initial field survey for this assessment on September 29-30, 2014 to identify energy efficiency opportunities. A follow-up field survey was performed on December 8th, which included IR scanning of the conditioned buildings at the site.  Engineers analyzed current building energy consumption by reviewing utility bills and estimating energy end uses. Energy loads and energy efficiency measures were evaluated using pertinent energy and equipment data and spreadsheet calculations. Implementation costs and annual utility cost savings are used to calculate a simple payback period, an internal rate of return (IRR) and Savings to Investment Ratio (SIR) which forms the basis for each recommended measure.

MCLB Barstow, CA Energy Audits

Davenergy Solutions was subcontracted by Abraxas Energy Consulting to assist in the conducting of Detailed Energy Audit conducted on 30 separate buildings at Marine Corps Logistics Base (MCLB) Barstow, with a total area of 2,821,069 square feet.  MMCLB BarstowCLB Barstow is located 134 miles east of Los Angeles in San Bernardino County.

The 30 buildings included in this scope of work were divided between 21 warehouses, two barracks, three offices, child care center, gym, fire station, and communications center.

MCLB Barstow contracted with Abraxas Energy Consulting to complete a detailed energy audit, including the analysis of a month of 15 minute electric interval data.   The goal of the audit was to assist MCLB Barstow in achieving the EISA 2007 required 30% energy reductions by providing conservation measures with detailed descriptions, scopes and calculations that could then be executed using O&M, ECIP or other sources of funding.

During the on-site inspection all the relevant information on the existing building conditions was collected. This on-site assessment included reviewing building and equipment data, interviewing site personnel, observing energy related equipment operation, and conducting some limited site measurements. Based on the inspection and calculations 13 Energy Conservation Measures (ECMs) were recommended, as well as recommendations for improving the current electric meter data logging scheme.
