Simuwatt® Energy Auditor and Clark Nexsen Announce Collaboration to Streamline Energy Auditing Process

simuwatt® Energy Auditor implemented by Clark Nexsen on Retro-Commissioning Project at NASA’s Langley Research Center

simuwatt® Energy Auditor, a provider of software aimed at reducing the time and cost of energy audits, and Clark Nexsen, a national architecture and engineering firm, today announced their collaboration to streamline the data collection phase of energy auditing, retro-commissioning, and similar efforts. Specifically, this collaboration is ongoing on a retro-commissioning project at NASA’s Langley Research Center. This effort creates an opportunity for Clark Nexsen to more effectively deliver high value energy efficiency recommendations, and empowers end facility owners in reducing their energy consumption.

5.6 million commercial buildings account for 36% of all electricity consumed in the United States, amounting to more than $190 billion in energy costs every year. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, 30% of the energy used in commercial buildings is wasted, presenting an opportunity for building owners and managers to significantly reduce their operating costs. Energy engineering companies, like Clark Nexsen, conduct energy assessments for clients looking for key areas for cost savings. Collecting site data needed for analysis can be inefficient and costly; a problem that many energy companies are turning to technology in order to solve.

“The use of simuwatt Energy Auditor has allowed us to focus more time on analysis and less time on raw data collection providing more effective outcomes for our clients,” said Tom Ostasiewski. “Ramping up on simuwatt came at little investment due to a simple, intuitive interface requiring minimal training, and a powerful export into currently used analysis solutions.” Providing efficient and effective energy analysis is a growing need as government mandates for commercial energy benchmarking and auditing continue to grow. As this market continues to evolve, partnerships between energy engineering firms and software companies will become more prevalent.
