Lower your long-term costs
Get ahead of the curve
Taking the path to all-electric requires expertise and experience. AEA has extensive energy consulting experience on all-electric buildings, including both new construction and retrofits, and can offer assistance such as:
RFQs and RFPs – AEA can help developers develop language for Requests for Qualifications/Proposals to help identify sub-consultants and contractors with all-electric experience.
Gap Analysis – AEA will work with design teams to perform gap analysis of major and minor hurdles to achieving all-electric design so the team can begin addressing each issue systematically.
Design Charrette – Consultants from AEA can facilitate detailed all-electric strategy and design charrettes to help design teams break down silos and develop holistic approaches to building systems electrification.
Equipment Options Analysis – All-electric equipment options may be unfamiliar to some design teams. AEA can help identify options and help teams consider advantages and disadvantages of different approaches.
Equipment Manufacturer Coordination – AEA can connect design teams with manufacturers of all-electric equipment to facilitate design review and assistance from manufacturer representatives. While not intended to replace close engineer coordination with equipment manufacturers, this can be a helpful step in the process.
Electric Water Heating, Space Heating, and Cooking Assistance – AEA can help review electric (heat pump) water heating systems, electric space heating systems, and electric cooking systems for feasibility and performance — and suggest ideas for improvement.
Educate your teams about all-electric
EBCE is offering webinars to developers and design firms interested in learning how to design all-electric multifamily buildings. If you would like to schedule a webinar for your company, please contact us at email@example.com.
