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:
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.
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.
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.
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.
