Measurement, Verification & Maintenance
Bright Power can support your property management team by providing ongoing measurement, verification and maintenance services, which may encompass continuous benchmarking, ongoing commissioning, and on-call consulting for building-specific, energy-related questions or concerns.
Continuous benchmarking allows building owners to track and compare energy usage over time, independent of changing prices and weather events. Our monthly, bi-monthly or quarterly benchmark report will address:
- An up-to-date analysis of building energy use
- A comparison to the building's previous energy performance
- The energy impact of energy-related building improvements
A property owner can track the impact of new equipment, system problems, and efficiency measures. Owners or organizations planning projects across large portfolios can use benchmarking to replicate verified successes and avoid repeating unsuccessful efforts.
Commissioning is the process of ensuring that the systems in your building are designed, installed, functionally tested and capable of being operated and maintained according to the owner's operational needs. In ongoing commissioning, monitoring equipment and trending software is placed to continuously track of energy consumption, so that problems can be identified and addressed promptly. Also, building maintenance is enhanced to include operational procedures that promote energy efficiency. For ongoing commissioning to be highly effective, the building owner must retain high quality staff or service contractors that are trained and have the time and budget to not only gather and analyze data, but also to implement the solutions that come out of the analysis.
