Energy assessments provide a wide-range of benefits including identifying and correcting building deficiencies, analyzing potential energy reduction projects and associated savings, reducing pollutant emissions, and improved energy security. Energy assessments save energy, reduce energy costs, and lead to better, more efficient buildings. Energy assessments are a flexible tool that allows building owners insight into the “how,” “when,” and “why” energy is being used.

SEA provides ASHRAE-level energy assessments, and we have experience with complex systems in all building types including: healthcare, industrial, educational, transportation, mixed-use development and high security facilities. Our experience includes hundreds of millions of square feet of conditioned space across the world. Our energy assessment services include identifying life-cycle cost effective energy savings opportunities and developing project-level documentation for project implementation. In general, project activities include:

  • On-site assessment of all energy using systems
  • Benchmarking
  • Identifying low and no-cost energy saving opportunities
  • Identifying energy conservation measures
  • Energy conservation measure costing analysis
  • In-depth energy rate structure analysis
  • Building energy modeling


Energy assessments can be performed on a building to building basis, on a select group of representative buildings or across the owner’s entire portfolio. The depth of the assessment can span from a simple low cost/ no cost study to a detailed analysis of capital-intensive modifications.

Sain Engineering Associates, Inc. is proud to be one of the most prolific providers of energy assessments in the world. Contact us for more information about how we can help you become more energy efficient.
