There is an increasing need for organizations to track and justify sustainability efforts and report progress to regulators, investors, customers, and employees. Intelligent energy efficiency and management strategies represent a new, crucial tool for enterprises as the central repository, management system, and reporting mechanism for comprehensive energy and greenhouse gas emissions data.

USL Technology’s Comprehensive Building Assessment & Maintenance:

Technology and Sustainability Initiatives: Good for Business and The Environment.

“Buildings have a significant impact on New York City’s environment. Energy use in our buildings is responsible for 75% of our carbon emissions, 94% of our electricity use, and 85% of our water consumption.”- PlaNYC 2011

Managing energy costs has become a corporate-level priority for many organizations. Challenges such as data center capacity constraints, shrinking budgets, and global climate change have spurred new innovation in intelligent energy management technologies.

There are many opportunities to achieve significant company-wide energy reductions. Taking an iterative approach to energy management for the enterprise, organizations can set practical goals for improving energy efficiency across data centers, IT assets, technical facilities, commercial buildings, and Federal, State, Local and City Government buildings.

As we continue to develop our expertise in the market, USL Technology partners with industry leaders such as Cisco Systems. Our firm has met the rigorous Cisco certification requirements for designation as an EnergyWise Suite Integrator Partner. This helps ensure that our sales and support organizations are better prepared to properly design, install, and support EnergyWise specific technology and products for our clients.

The Customer Requirements are Our Guide.

Developing an energy efficiency strategy requires careful planning and assessment of your business, and there is no one-size-fits-all solution.Every building, with its specific features (age, size, geographic location and particular climate area), requires a unique set of solutions. We consider a few financial metrics as part of determining the potential of recommended efficiency measures: Return on Investment (ROI), Net Present Value (NPV), Savings to Investment Ratio (SIR) and the Simple Payback Period. This tailor-made approach can greatly improve the success of your organization.

To this end, we provide ASHRAE Level I and Level II Energy Assessments, Empirical Analysis of Current Operating Conditions of Systems and Subsystems, and Annual Energy Utility Bill Analysis.

Some factors we consider when reviewing potential solutions:

  • Energy Audit
  • Airflow Management & Containment Strategies
  • Temperature Set-point Adjustment
  • Building Automation Systems and Controls
  • Lighting Controls
  • Building Management Systems
  • Transformers
  • UPS/PDUs
  • CRAC & CRAH Units
  • Chiller Plant
  • Air and Water-Side Economizers
  • Cooling Towers
  • Backup Generators
  • Wiring & Cabling
