September 2021: Edison Energy

Edison Energy provides independent, innovative solutions and services to help leading commercial, industrial, and institutional clients navigate and optimize the key challenges of cost, carbon and the increasingly complex choices in energy.

Taking a collaborative and data led approach to analyzing and advising their clients on their energy portfolios – they design and implement solutions that meet their needs in renewables, energy supply & demand, and sustainability.

Their Energy Optimization Services team leverages both traditional demand side strategies and newly available supply side initiatives to ensure optimum facility performance and lower operating costs. With experience ranging from large-scale power generation to traditional & complex, integrated building and energy systems, their solutions focus on the domains of building HVAC and controls, project implementation and owner’s representative, data analytics and monitoring, distributed energy resources (DER), transportation electrification, renewables, and energy program development and training.


Key Energy Efficiency Related Work

Providing comprehensive consulting, engineering, and implementation services, Edison’s Energy Optimization Services team partners with clients as a strategic adviser, specialty implementer— or both—to design, develop and execute complex energy efficiency and conservation projects. Having identified, quantified, and implemented energy conservation measures and programs in over 600M square feet of commercial, industrial, and institutional space, clients utilizing their core offerings have saved billions of dollars in avoided energy costs.

Staffed with highly tenured professionals ranging from energy & field engineering, project management, design & construction, to market & procurement specialists, renewables and new energy technologies experts, their team has decades of hand-on experience to ensure their clients get the best results.

With a local presence, their team has familiarity with the Virginia market, assuring adherence to permitting and interconnection, codes, requirements, regional rebates/incentives, and other essential experience critical to ongoing oversight of energy efficiency projects.

A selection of notable project highlights are listed below:

  • Edison Energy was contracted by Bausch Health for multiple projects in Lynchburg, Virginia, including: new addition commissioning, new addition safety consulting, and a facility conditions assessment. The conditions assessment was conducted by interviewing the facility operating and managing staff and by making site inspections of all primary energy using equipment. Upon completion of the assessment, the Edison team identified energy conservation opportunities that would improve operations and save energy. If implemented, the reduction would equate to 37% electric savings, 19% demand reduction, and 1.4% natural gas reduction.
  • Edison Energy worked with the University of Richmond to perform a refresh of an Energy Master Plan originally developed in 2011. The intent of the Energy Master Plan was to guide the University’s strategic and tactical efforts to meet the goals and objectives established in the University’s Climate Action Plan. This refreshed Energy Master Plan was organized as a guide to benchmark the University’s success over the years. Overall, 42 energy conservation measures were identified, which upon implementation, the university would see an IRR of 10.3% (15 years, 1% annual increase for energy costs).
  • Edison Energy is currently performing commissioning work at the Smith Aquatic Center in Charlottesville, Virginia and Fairfax County Public Schools (Langston Hughes Middle School). Both projects are expected to be complete by the end of 2021.
