ENERGY AUDITING

inspect, survey and analyse your building’s energy use to improve and optimise its energy conservation.

How does your property compare to energy and water benchmarks for similar buildings?

Measuring is the first step to improve, therefore water & energy auditing are critical to trace a continuous improvement route for energy & water efficiency. Our energy and water consultants will perform regular inspections coupled with analysis of your sites’ historical performance, to track and help you make informed decisions about your building energy and water performance.

What do you get?

HFM will:

  • Recommend to you with different actions or scenarios to be undertaken
  • Develop a comprehensive budget
  • Calculate your return on investment (ROI) expected

This means you’ll be able to make rational decisions about how to allocate your resources to achieve the best value for energy savings.

Info energy management plan

ENERGY MANAGEMENT PLAN

Your building needs a strategic plan to achieve energy efficiency

 

We will guide your company, site or portfolio on how to improve energy efficiency.

 

At HFM, we develop customised Energy Management Roadmaps that articulate the required measures to reduce energy consumption and achieve formal targets (such as NABERS Star Rating, Greenstar Performance, etc).

 

Each of our Energy Management Plan (EMP) is a systematic and evolving plan which is progressively updated and permanently improving as energy reduction measures and efficiency improvements are implemented and new ones developed.

 

We work closely with our clients and meet regularly with all stakeholders to review the progress, milestones achieved and drive the implementation of each recommendation in our report.

 

Our improvement recommendations are based on expert knowledge, thorough site investigation and analysis conducted by our engineers and consultants, usually during an initial Energy Audit or inspection.

UTILITIES MONITORING SOFTWARE

Yardstick, our building efficiency tool will help you Monitoring your utilities and CO2, via Yardstick, our powerful cloud-based monitoring and report platform, you can be in control of your site’s performance and energy consumption.

How does this relate to energy or water procurement?

By regular tracking and monitoring of a buildings end uses of energy and water, any issues can be quickly detected. This may prompt a review of certain consumption trends and flag out where efficiency improvements can be made, thus assisting in maintaining steady utility costs.

SOLAR ENERGY & RENEWABLES FOR BUILDINGS

We make a difference through Engineering Guidance.

From feasibility studies for a solar panel power generation system to installation and monitoring of its performance; HFM provides independent advice and solutions that will make a difference in your solar power and renewable energy journey.

You can save money and reduce energy consumption with onsite generation in the form of:

  • Battery storage
  • Solar PV
  • Embedded network
  • Microgrid arrangements.

If you are interested in renewable power, installing onsite generation to reduce grid consumption and energy costs for your asset, we will make sure the site, its electrical infrastructure and energy contracts are ready for renewable energy to streamline the process and maximise the benefits for you.
