Commercial Efficiency Measures
RISE Engineering is a one-stop provider of turnkey energy-efficiency services encompassing various technologies, industries, and facility types.
RISE provides commercial and industrial energy users comprehensive solutions that reduce the environmental footprint and operating expense of their facilities. Our start-to-finish services include energy assessments and proposals, energy engineering services, project management, installation of energy improvements, and assistance leveraging available financial incentives. We serve various industries and types of facilities and scale our services accordingly, whether it be for a single building in one location or a portfolio of buildings in multiple locations.
Outdoor and low profile garage LED fixtures to maintain light levels over time, cost less, and require less maintenance in providing necessary safety illumination for patrons.
With the increasing number of EV’s, the demand for charging stations is increasing rapidly. A dedicated team at RISE can design/build a solution that captures significant cost-sharing in conjunction with the emerging utility company programs.
Most electricity used in non-residential buildings flows through distribution transformers on the customer side of the electric meter. Older equipment can be replaced with premium efficiency transformers that will reduce noise and heat, and save a significant amount of energy. Because transformers are powered every hour of every day, even incremental improvements can yield significant energy savings over time.
It is important to ensure your facility is not wasting energy on inefficient heating and cooling systems. These systems usually make up over 50% of the site's energy load. Identifying when to upgrade these large energy-using items is a critical part of managing your overall operational costs.
Advanced lighting controls help save energy and enhance building occupant comfort by using energy-efficient LED light when and where it is needed most. Types of controls include lighting-level presets, occupancy sensors, single and multi-zone dimming, daylight harvesting sensors, photocell sensors, and wireless remote control.
RISE uses advances in wireless building controls to help managers operate their buildings for occupant comfort and efficiency.
In commercial kitchens, RISE can ensure that a properly designed demand control hood ventilation system, coupled with refrigeration controls on walk-in coolers and freezers, will optimize performance.
One of the most cost-effective improvements, RISE has installed thousands of high-efficiency spray and salon valves to reduce water usage and save energy without compromising performance.
RISE has effectively deployed combined heat and power (CHP) plants to provide cost-effective on-site electric generation and waste heat recovery in facilities that have a year-round demand for hot water.
High-efficiency chillers can save up to 60% of your cooling costs for your facilities.
Eliminate the need for hot water when building and resurfacing ice while lower utility costs for your facility. The ice rink water treatment installed by RISE is maintenance-free and removes micro-air bubbles from water without using chemicals, filters or membranes. This technique requires no additional energy sources to operate and typically yields an ROI of 1-2 years.
Premium heating equipment, coupled with high-efficiency distribution system components, make up the wholistic RISE approach for more affordable and effective heating system upgrades.
These controls are designed to improve the efficiency of HVAC, fan and pump systems by matching only the energy that is required by the building or occupants. Without these controls, your facility may be paying for energy that is not needed.
RISE is deploying these increasingly popular units to provide highly efficient heating and cooling. They are well suited to commercial applications, and incentives to encourage their adoption are rapidly becoming more generous.
By installing new insulation or adding to existing insulation you can pinpoint the sources of occupant discomfort, reduce unwanted energy loss and devise strategies to improve building envelope efficiency and create better work environments.
The mechanical room of a large multi-family, commercial, or industrial building can be an important source of cost-effective energy-saving investments. Advances in equipment efficiency and control technologies make it possible to achieve greater reliability, reduce maintenance requirements, prolong system life, and achieve better comfort in occupied spaces. Taking a holistic approach to mechanical room efficiency is a sound strategy for building owners and operators.Learn More
Once facilities have optimized their efficiency, RISE has helped many clients utilize PV systems to move towards "net zero" energy use.
It was an easy decision to move forward with this project once we saw how much we could save. I was worried that the installation would inconvenience the tenants or interrupt our operations, but after the installers introduced themselves and got to work we barely noticed they were there. The initial savings we've realized have been great, and we're interested in retrofitting other buildings.
