Seeking Solutions, Not Projects
Energy audit reports can be notorious for failing to provide actionable results, giving you projects instead of solutions. Uncommon Energy's approach provides data customized to your decision-making process, ensuring that the results will give you the confidence to move forward through procurement and the data required to apply for incentive from your local utility. If you want, Uncommon Energy can help facilitate the process alongside you, presenting results to executive or council staff and assembling and running tenders.
Whether you're looking for a simple walkthrough audit or a highly-detailed engineering report for a single building or an entire portfolio, Uncommon Energy can help you quantify the risk and seek the solution that provides you with the lowest life-cycle cost. Please reach out to us to provide a free, no-obligation estimate.
Applying Energy Analytics to Demonstrate Performance
There is no shortage of companies marketing purported energy efficiency technologies with insufficient evidence to prove energy and cost savings. Uncommon Energy can shed light on these technologies, providing metering and analytics services to help better understand the impact of new technologies and how they can work in your scenario.
Whether you're an energy manager looking to evaluate a particular technology or a service provider looking for the data you need to effectively market your product, Uncommon Energy can design and carry out a fair apples-to-apples comparison compliant with international standards like IPMVP that you can bring to your clients or local utilities alike.
Charting a Path Toward Your Goals
Across Ontario, municipalities have completed Energy Conservation and Demand Management Plans as part of the Green Energy Act but have mixed results on progress towards their goals. If you're looking at a big list of potential projects and aren't sure where to start, give UE a call to help put structure towards your goals. Contact us today to have a no-obligation discussion of the information you have on hand, the goals you're looking to meet, and the best way to meet or surpass those goals.
WHO IS UNCOMMON ENERGY?
My name is Blake Strachan and I'm the founder and owner of Uncommon Energy. I have worked as an engineering professional in the energy efficiency consulting world for over 9 years. I am passionate about creating innovative and practical solutions to create an efficient, comfortable built environment. I've audited hundreds of buildings ranging from luxury hotels in Indonesia to nuclear safety laboratories in the National Capital Region and pride myself in delivering pragmatic, grounded solutions that work with day-to-day occupants, not in spite of them.
I've concentrated my efforts on this industry because I find it uniquely interesting. So yes, when I walk into your building and stare at the ceiling, I'm checking out your lights and doing simple payback period calculations in my head. And yes, I'm looking to see where your thermostats are located and whether that might make your systems run overtime, costing more money to create a less comfortable space. I'm constantly researching new technologies, incentive programs and regulatory developments to see how they might impact my clients' utility spend.
