Prepare audit reports containing energy analysis results or recommendations for energy cost savings.
Collect and analyze field data related to energy usage.
Inspect or evaluate building envelopes, mechanical systems, electrical systems, or process systems to determine the energy consumption of each system.
Perform tests such as blower-door tests to locate air leaks.
Educate customers on energy efficiency or answer questions on topics such as the costs of running household appliances or the selection of energy efficient appliances.
Calculate potential for energy savings.
Recommend energy efficient technologies or alternate energy sources.
Prepare job specification sheets for home energy improvements, such as attic insulation, window retrofits, or heating system upgrades.
Quantify energy consumption to establish baselines for energy use or need.
Identify opportunities to improve the operation, maintenance, or energy efficiency of building or process systems.
Analyze technical feasibility of energy saving measures using knowledge of engineering, energy production, energy use, construction, maintenance, system operation, or process systems.
Analyze energy bills including utility rates or tariffs to gather historical energy usage data.
Measure energy usage with devices such as data loggers, universal data recorders, light meters, sling psychrometers, psychrometric charts, flue gas analyzers, amp probes, watt meters, volt meters, thermometers, or utility meters.
Determine patterns of building use to show annual or monthly needs for heating, cooling, lighting, or other energy needs.
Compare existing energy consumption levels to normative data.
Oversee installation of equipment such as water heater wraps, pipe insulation, weatherstripping, door sweeps, or low flow showerheads to improve energy efficiency.
