Development

One of our specialties is helping our clients’ executive management teams develop and implement a comprehensive program to manage energy procurement, consumption, and generation.

Masonic Charity Foundation of New Jersey

MCFA performed a total site energy audit and energy infrastructure master planning project for the Masonic Charity Foundation of New Jersey.  The project goals were to develop a basic understanding of energy use on-site and develop preliminary energy savings opportunities (ASHRAE Level 1); perform detailed evaluations and analysis for a subset of opportunities of interest to the Masonic Charity Foundation (ASHRAE Level 2); and finally to develop design documents and robust modeling to build an Investment Grade Audit for lighting retrofits, chilled water plant renovations, and cogeneration projects.

MCFA assisted the Masonic Charity Foundation not only in energy savings opportunities, but also in developing a risk-based assessment of the facility’s condition and developing alternative financing methods to replace failing infrastructure.

MCFA’s energy analysis included detailed eQuest models of the facility, calibrated and adjusted for typical meteorological year, as well as robust hourly models for solar power and cogeneration projects.

MCFA also developed design drawings for pricing, coordinated with bidders, and developed financing alternatives to achieve the desired reduction in operating expenses and capital infrastructure improvements.

Cathedral Village – New Jersey

MCFA performed a total site energy audit and energy infrastructure master planning project for the Cathedral Village.  The project goals were to develop a basic understanding of energy use on-site and develop preliminary energy savings opportunities (ASHRAE Level 1); perform detailed evaluations and analysis for a subset of opportunities of interest to the Cathedral Village (ASHRAE Level 2); and finally to develop design documents and robust modeling to build an Investment Grade Audit for lighting retrofits, a hot water heat recovery system, replacement of six roof-top combined hot water heating and air conditioning units, and a cogeneration project.
MCFA assisted the Cathedral Village not only in energy savings opportunities, but also in developing alternative financing methods to provide energy savings and replace failing infrastructure.

MCFA also developed design drawings for pricing, coordinated with bidders, and developed financing alternatives to achieve the desired reduction in operating expenses and capital infrastructure improvements.  MCFA is currently working to finalize an energy services agreement between the Cathedral Village and a financier, which will result in a no-cost energy infrastructure improvement to the Cathedral Village site.
