Energy Engineering Consulting
Trident works with agencies and organizations to cooperatively develop strategies for improving facility energy performance. Trident conducts on-site and off-site facility energy audits, calculates baseline energy performance and greenhouse gas emissions, determines potential opportunities for improving energy use, and works with the organization through the implementation process.
Trident Energy Services is well versed with the wide variety of financing mechanisms available to public agencies and private organizations. Funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act are supporting new energy projects in the form of grants, bonds, and low- to no-interest loans. In addition, local government agencies, utilities and select counties are also offering financial assistance in the form of rebates, incentives, and low- to no-interest loans. Trident works diligently with all of our clients to ensure that each client receives appropriate funds to supplement or cover projects costs. For more information on funding opportunities see our Resources page.
Federal Energy Management Program
Under the guidance of the Federal Energy Management Program, Trident performed several SAVEnergy audits for federal facilities including prominent locations such as: Channel Islands National Park Headquarters, Zion National Park, and the U.S. Geological Society National Wetlands Research Center. The purpose of the SAVEnergy program was to help federal facilities reach the target goal of 30% less energy use by 2010 under the Energy Policy Act of 1992 and Executive Order 13123. The audits summarized the results from energy and water saving measures and renewable energy projects.
Trident calculated energy and water consumption values before and after upgrades took place and the greenhouse gas emission reductions from each measure. Trident also worked with the agency to determine the financial impact from each measure, assisted in locating funding sources to supplement the project cost, and provided support through the ongoing verification process.
