  • Analyze historic utility use, peak demand, and cost.
  • Develop Energy Cost Index (ECI) and Energy Utilization Index (EUI).

-Level 1—Walk-Through Survey

  • Assess energy cost and efficiency with energy bills and a brief on-site survey to determine Energy Conservation Measure (ECM).
  • Identify low-cost/no-cost efficiency measures and potential capital improvements.

-Level 2—Energy Survey Analysis

  • Conduct a detailed building survey and energy consumption analysis.
  • Break down energy end uses within the building.

-Level 3—Detailed Analysis of Capital Intensive Modifications

  • Focus on capital-intensive projects with detailed field data and rigorous analyses.
  • Often include modeling the annual energy performance of the building.
