Educational Facilities

U.S. Energy Engineers works with school districts to provide tools necessary to reduce the cost of operating their facilities. Our work provides schools teams with energy management methodologies that keep operating costs down by reducing energy waste while providing a safe, comfortable environment for learning. We work with K-12 facilities through to university campuses, producing reports that can be used to verify and monitor energy project costs.

Education Facilities

Our work addresses energy efficiency options for new and existing education facilities all over the United States. We work with design teams, school boards, educational facility planners, architects, engineers or others that manage energy utility of educational facilities. Understanding that most institutions have budgetary concerns, U.S. Energy Engineers consider investments costs to adhere to expected ROI targets set for each project. We use various energy analytical methodologies to establish financial parameters, energy reducing measures and project priorities.

Solutions for schools and universities

Depending on the location, climate and various other statistics, U.S. Energy Engineers provides expert services in analyzing the predicted performance of educational buildings. We analyze HVAC, airflow, lighting and energy systems control. We coordinate and model energy loads, mainly HVAC loads, and how they impact ventilation, supply of air conditioning, and control moisture. We also optimize lighting loads since schools and universities need specific lighting levels, distribution and quality. In cases of retrofits or new construction, we can evaluate or re-design where necessary. We have the ability to balance energy loads while reducing energy costs. Additionally, we can set energy reduction priorities for an entire campus, at the same time providing reporting and monitoring of energy use after implementation.


We also design specialized energy management planning tools for individual facilities, campuses or for entire school districts. These include:

  • Energy Management Checklists
  • Strategic Energy Management Plans
  • Long Range Energy Utility Plans

These planning tools assists the various stakeholders with an action plan that guides and controls budgets, operational targets and other aspects of energy management.
