While a powerful tool, energy-analysis software is also prone to misuse or misinterpretation. To avoid this, Altura goes beyond simple data analysis, leveraging our deep engineering expertise and commissioning experience to build models that are informed by real-world performance. Our modeling focuses on
This approach ensures that we are only spending time and money to build models we know can add value, but also result in better decision making.
Altura is focused on making your business better, improving your asset performance, and answering your questions. We use a combination of commercial software and custom spreadsheets to offer nimble, cost-effective service.
Our targeted modeling approach leverages the software and technologies that best fit the project’s needs—rather than one-size-fits-all solutions. And, because our engineers perform commissioning services and verify energy performance in the field, our modeling is governed by realistic assumptions and practical recommendations.
Examples of how Altura has successfully leveraged energy modeling services include the following:
Working with Enterprise Community Partners and a development team that includes Mercy Housing and The Related Companies, Altura staff developed a comprehensive energy master plan for the planned Sunnydale community in San Francisco.
Altura developed energy models and provided financial performance analysis of dozens of energy-efficiency and on-site energy generation strategies, including
The development of the plan included a robust stakeholder engagement process to ensure buy-in from all parties and support the success of energy opportunities.
As part of a sustainable redevelopment initiative in the District of Columbia, the DC Housing Authority (DCHA) was awarded a grant to complete a renewable power generation feasibility study. This effort would explore opportunities to redevelop an abandoned coal-fired power plant into a renewable energy powerhouse.
The new sustainable power plant will support the redevelopment of Langston Dwellings, the first public housing project in Washington DC that’s also a historic landmark and listed on the National Register of Historic Places and the District of Columbia Inventory of Historic Sites.
Altura is working with the DCHA to complete a renewable power generation feasibility study, exploring renewable energy opportunities. This includes plans to develop 2 – 3 viable scenarios for successful project redevelopment, using on-site renewable power generation technologies such as
