The Energy Engineer, Level II, is responsible for identifying project opportunities by conducting feasibility assessments in one or more market verticals. The role performs preliminary and detailed facility audits to identify and develop improvement measure (FIM) project opportunities.
Key responsibilities include, but are not limited to:
- Coordinate and lead facility site visits with client representative and communicate with outside vendors as it pertains to FIM development.
- Lead technical aspects of preliminary and final performance contracting proposal development, including energy benchmarks, proposed project descriptions, utility cost savings and preliminary cost estimates.
- Determine existing facility AMEP system design and control concepts and operating characteristics with client technical representative.
- Determine original systems design concepts and control strategies; compare with existing system operating characteristics.
- Benchmark facilities utility use and costs compared to applicable standards (CBEC, etc.).
- Reconcile utility use of applicable AMEP systems by applying operating characteristics or using energy simulation software.
- Compare existing building system operating efficiencies to current energy efficiency/code standards and industry best practices. Determine and rank potential opportunities to renovate systems to improve system efficiencies and reduce operating costs.
- Determine potential savings and overall project opportunity.
- Calculate energy and cost savings calculations using existing templates or create new calculations using applicable software tools.
- Create detailed project scopes of work. Coordinate project scope contact with Operations in order to meeting bidding requirements.
