Technical Assistance and Engineering Services

Let Mass Save help energy-efficiency work for your business.
Energy efficiency increases economic competitiveness, improves financial results, and protects the environment. Technical Assistance makes it possible.

 

Your Resource for Energy Efficient Solutions

Our Technical Assistance Services tap into the expertise of the Sponsors of Mass Save, pre-qualified independent engineers, and consultants to help businesses become more energy efficient. We work with commercial, industrial, and municipal customers to identify better energy management practices and implement customized energy efficiency projects.

Technical Assistance is ideally suited for specialized efficiency measures, including the selection, engineering, and installation of:

  • Building envelope/weatherization improvements 
  • Chillers and boilers
  • Combustion controls
  • Compressed air systems
  • Custom lighting systems
  • Energy management systems
  • Heat recovery
  • HVAC systems
  • Process and manufacturing improvements
  • Pumping systems
  • Steam systems
  • Variable frequency drives

Technical Assistance is also the basis for more targeted services, including Commissioning, and Retro-Commissioning.

 

Benefits of Technical Assistance

Technical Assistance enables significant improvements in the energy efficiency of key equipment and systems, while also:

  • Helping building owners and operators understand the energy costs in their buildings
  • Reducing operating costs and fostering improved profitability
  • Promoting environmentally friendly operations by reducing the carbon footprint of the business
  • Educating staff regarding energy efficient technologies and practices

 

Mutual Commitment

The Technical Assistance process is highly collaborative and interactive. The commitment and involvement of the customer’s staff is essential to achieve the greatest possible improvements in energy efficiency.

 

Costs and Incentives
