CEG Markets

Private Sector

Whether you are seeking to become more sustainable or simply to minimize your utility expenses, CEG can help reduce operations expenses, increase your property’s value, and boost your firm’s reputation for sustainability. We understand the specific challenges that private sector clients face regarding project returns and financing and can design projects to achieve your goals. CEG focuses on understanding each property’s unique operating characteristics, plans for short-term usage and plans for long-term operations and focuses on those improvements that maximize the value to the property owner.

Public Sector

We offers comprehensive solutions for federal, state, and local governments. We understand that in today’s fiscal environment, governments are increasingly being asked to do more with less. Our solutions allow governments to get the benefits of energy efficiency, renewable energy, and sustainability without needing to allocate their scarce budgets toward the projects. We understand the specific challenges and requirements of working in government facilities. In addition, CEG is a DOE-qualified Energy Services company and we are one of 16 firms that hold the DOE IDIQ contract, which allows us to use DOE FEMP’s processes and resources for Federal projects.

Laboratories

Research facilities, specifically laboratories and clean rooms, consume energy at significantly higher rates than average commercial buildings. CEG’s nationwide portfolio of mission critical projects includes a diverse group of projects implemented in fully-occupied and operational research facilities. We have the in-house development, engineering, construction, management, and implementation capabilities that are critical to the success of complex utility efficiency projects.

Industrial

CEG has the experience and expertise to seamlessly upgrade industrial facilities to reduce utility and operational costs. Our holistic projects typically include more than the typical water and HVAC measures. Some of our most impactful energy efficiency upgrades have been the result of our experience with compressed air systems, refrigeration systems, water purification plants, and other industrial processes. Moreover, because many industrial sites have a large base heating or electric load and large roof or land space, alternative energy installations like CHP or solar PV are typically more viable at industrial sites.

Offices

At the average office building, about 30% of energy is wasted – most of it during peak-use times when energy prices are highest. Approximately 70% of an office’s energy use relates to lighting and space conditioning, two areas where we can typically have an immediate impact. We also consider how you can engage your occupants to drive further reduction and a sustainability of savings for your property. CEG can tailor a plan to your office that achieves your desired level of cost and energy savings.

Supermarkets

Supermarket stores in the U.S. spend on average more than $4 per square foot on energy, consuming around 50kWh and 50 cubic feet of natural gas per square foot per year. In a typical supermarket, refrigeration and lighting represent 44-77% of total use depending on climate, making these systems the best targets for energy savings. Especially since the profit margins of supermarkets are so thin, on the order of 1%, ENERGY STAR estimates that one dollar in energy savings is equivalent to increasing sales by $59!
