  • Renewable energy and energy storage design
  • Reducing building energy baselines through Monitoring Based Commissioning (MBCx) or through active Energy Audits
  • Electrification and more carbon neutral/energy efficient building system design
  • Serving as a project facilitator to support clients throughout the development, design and building phases of resiliency projects
  • Implementation of demand response solutions
  • Helping select appropriate engineering contractors to implement a microgrid or other resiliency projects
  • Monitoring energy flow and demand within buildings and between energy sources
  • Geotechnical surveying solutions
  • Community outreach and sustainability policy support
  • Environmental studies and reviews to support building and generation systems
