Energy Modelling

Energy modelling of buildings consists of the use of software to analyze and optimize the energy performance of a building. It is a versatile tool used to:

  • Help the design teams toidentify the measures with the best return on investment
  • Plan and optimize renovations
  • Ensure building code compliance
  • Support financial incentives requests

Fianancial Incentives

Financial subsidy provided by an organization toencourage and influence energy efficiency measures by reimbursing a portion ofthe costs associated with the measures implemented.

The main applications for grants are made to the following entities:

Commissioning (Cx)

The commissioning of new buildings is a critical step to ensure that a project's systems meet technical design requirements. The quality assurance process is implemented from the start and continues during the first year of operation. It involves testing, in-depth analysis, staff training and the identification and correction of any compliance issues with the building’s electrical, HVAC, lighting or other systems.

Benefits:

  • Validating the operation of the equipment
  • Reducing operating and maintenance costs
  • Transferring information between design, construction and operation teams
  • Identifying problematic elements before having negative impacts

Measurement & Verification

This process, based on the IPMVP Protocol, allows the precise measurement of the actual energy consumption of a building's mechanical and electrical systems. This verifies real energy savings associated with efficiency measurements implemented, helping understand energy consumption.

This program is essential for some of the financial incentives programs and credits for LEED Certification.

The measurement and verification process (M&V) ensures that mechanical systems are working properly. Monitoring can also be used to verify predictions made about energy savings.

The training we offer and the conferences we participate in are aimed at different audiences and improve knowledge and skills in the field of energy efficiency.

Energy studies

Energy analyses allow the identification of energy efficiency measures to improve the performance of a building. Following a site visit and after a review of the technical documentation and the use of relevant computational tools, Akonovia’s team prepares a report on the feasibility of energy efficiency measures and their impacts on the energy consumption and the environment.

Some programs offer a grant to conduct energy studies.

Energy analyses identify energy efficient measures to improve building performance.

Geothermal

Akonovia has expertise in geothermal system sizing design, commissioning and solving operation problems.

Optimization of the geothermal field to increase profitability using Energy modelling and geothermal sizing models.

Recommissioning (Rcx)

Recommissioning identifies improvements to reduce operating and energy costs while improving comfort and air quality.

In this process, Akonovia’s team analyzes and provides detailed performances improvement recommendations that may includere pairs, upgrades, or staff training. Akonovia then monitors these efficiency measures over time, ensuring their sustainability.

Recommissioning identifies improvements to reduce operating and energy costs while improving comfort and air quality.

Integrated Design Process (IDP)

  • In integrated design, the team members for each project are involved upstream in all plans and specifications, so as to properly identify the project's stakes in order to optimize the design. This collaboration brings added value to the project and allows productive teamwork.
A collaborative, spanning the entire project from the beginning to the end with all stakehoders: architectural designers, building engineers, energy modellers, operators, users and client representatives Energy modelling.
