At Group14, we inspire better buildings that are smarter, healthier, and more cost-efficient through innovative energy solutions.
Group14’s energy efficiency services include energy modeling and consulting for early design optimization, electrification of building systems, LEED and building code compliance, utility and life-cycle cost analysis, Measurement and Verification (M&V), energy audits, and utility incentives. We serve the commercial and multifamily sectors, with a specialty in affordable housing.
Group14 uses energy modeling tools to assess the building energy performance and make energy efficiency recommendations with respect to the envelope, lighting, mechanical systems, controls and process energy consumption. Owners and designers can rely on our analysis to determine the value of energy upgrades.
Group14’s energy audits analyze and reduce the energy consumption of existing buildings. Our clients include owners of single buildings, multi-building campuses, building portfolios, and government buildings. Auditing services are customized to the client’s goals and include ASHRAE Level I, II, and III audits.
Group14 is assisting clients with all-electric design and operations to achieve net-zero energy (NZE) and reduce their building’s carbon emissions. Group14 has worked on all-electric buildings across multiple sectors with verified net-zero energy results.
Group14 has extensive experience helping clients decide where to focus their efficiency efforts. This includes verifying and tracking progress over time and monitoring the long-term performance of buildings to identify improvements. Group14 analyzes utility data and establishes benchmarks to provide Measurement & Verification, tracking ongoing energy and water savings.
Group14 produces utility allowances for a variety of clients, capturing monetary benefits associated with in-unit, energy-efficient investments. We have in-depth experience with consumption and engineered allowance calculation methodologies, including several types of energy modeling software (eQuest, REM/Rate, Energy Plus, etc).
I have worked extensively with Group 14 on many HVAC projects. Their understanding of energy, energy tradeoffs and common-sense solutions are unparalleled in the industry.
