Fortier Engineering has experience with and provides services for energy auditing, building commissioning and retrocommissioning, energy savings Measurement and Verification (M&V), and commissioning and retrocommissioning through analysis of trend data monitored and stored by building automation systems. We can develop a custom program, designed to meet individual project needs, which will allow us to quickly analyze up to hundreds of thousands of trended points, and automatically detect problems that effect energy costs.

ENERGY AUDITS

Fortier Engineering performs energy audits for commercial and institutional buildings, including comprehensive evaluations of a building’s energy performance relative to the state energy code, Energy Star requirements, and ASHRAE recommendations. We provide detailed analysis of energy consuming systems, including cooling, heating, ventilation, and domestic water systems. We partner with an electrical consultant to evaluate lighting systems. As part of the energy audit, we may construct an energy model in EnergyPlus or in Carrier’s HAP program. Fortier Engineering provides cost estimates and savings projections, and can follow up with project design, savings Measurement and Verification (M&V), construction inspection, and commissioning.

PERFORMANCE CONTRACTING

Dan Fortier has guaranteed energy savings performance contracting experience as an Owner’s representative, as a Consultant, and in a management capacity for a Contractor selling and installing performance contracts, which has provided him with insight into which kinds of energy efficiency retrofits can be incorporated into a building renovation to produce the greatest cost savings possible. One of the greatest benefits Fortier Engineering can provide to an organization considering entering into a performance contract, is an evaluation of how enforceable an energy guarantee is from a technical standpoint.

MEASUREMENT AND VERIFICATION (M&V)

Fortier Engineering provides M&V for Guaranteed savings performance contracts and for LEED Energy and Atmosphere credit 5. Dan Fortier is certified by the Association of Energy Engineers (AEE) as a Measurement and Verification Professional (CMVP).
