We are experienced, knowledgeable professionals and can identify opportunities to save energy and money. Our greatest strength is in performing energy audits however we are experienced in a variety of related activities. Our energy audits include an on-site visit of your building(s) to inspect mechanical, heating and ventilation systems as well as general building condition, construction and operating procedures. We examine your utility bills, evaluate your energy consumption and ascertain seasonal patterns of energy use. With this information we identify your specific energy consumption requirements, how and where energy is used in your buildings and, most importantly, WHAT YOU CAN DO TO REDUCE YOUR COSTS. A little more detail is provided below for some of the different activities we typically perform:
UTILITY BILL ANALYSIS
Enerscan has developed and delivered training in energy management since about 1985, for dozens of different clients. Probably 1000 people have attended training sessions delivered by Dale Robertson, P.Eng., an individual well known in this field throughout the nation. He has participated in the development of not less than 20 different training sessions that have been delivered on 4 continents by both Dale Robertson and others. Although involved in this work for over 15 years, in the past roughly 5 years Mr. Robertson has had the privilege of working with well-known experts in Canada including Doug Tripp of the Canadian Institute for Energy Training, Steve Dixon of TdS Dixon Inc., Derrick Finn of Finn Projects, Brian Tyers of Optimum Engineering Ltd. and Robert Greenwald of Prism Engineering. Training programs have included the following:
At present one of the most active areas of training in Canada is the series offered by Natural Resources Canada's Office of Energy Efficiency (OEE). Enerscan participated (in a minor role) in developing one of the 3 full-day sessions, titled "Spot the Opportunities", and currently delivers all 3 workshops throughout Atlantic Canada, with occasional deliveries in Ontario.

ENERGY MANAGEMENT IMPLEMENTATION PLANNING AND COORDINATION
The management and coordination of implementation activity is sometimes the most important task to be undertaken! Although the use of good quality consulting engineering expertise can lead to the greatest savings, if the intentions of the engineers are not implemented properly then the savings may not be achieved. Through proper, organized planning and project management the cost of implementing suggested changes can be minimized and the savings that result maximized.
Enerscan has over 2 decades of experience managing the many different stages of implementation for a wide variety of clients.
One of the important elements of long term planning is developing a proper Energy Master Plan for the organization. The format for the plan has sometimes followed the suggestions made by Natural Resources Canada's Office of Energy Efficiency, and sometimes followed Enerscan's own determination of a most suitable format. In all cases, an organized plan for how an entire organization will yield superior results. Enerscan has the ability and experience to assist you develop your plan.
APPLICATIONS FOR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE
As time passes different concerns become more important to funding agencies and governments. At present, Canada has made a significant commitment to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and to reducing consumption of fossil fuels. As part of the leadership efforts there are a variety of financial incentives available to assist with the cost of implementation of measures as well as the cost of consulting in support of various measures. Enerscan is experienced in providing assistance to clients in applying for and securing grants and incentives.
