Energy Innovation

Supporting a cleaner, greener, more energy efficient future

Energy innovation is more than simply being more environmentally conscious. It’s about helping to carve a cleaner, more sustainable future for generations to come. Our creative solutions are not only kinder to the environment, they will also save you money, by actually helping to minimize your monthly running costs.

Why Energy Innovation Is So Important

With the world’s supply of natural resources in rapid decline, we believe it is vital to have a long-term sustainable energy policy that involves the clever use of renewable energy and energy saving measures. At Alpin, we take into consideration everything from your building’s orientation, glazing, materials and HVAC, to lighting, water and renewable energy resources to come up with innovative energy saving solutions.

Our Approach To Energy Innovation

Our team has years of experience in sourcing and implementing some of the most cutting edge, creative sustainable solutions. We are always researching new ways to help you harness the power of cleaner energy sources. Our strategies are not only cleaner and less harmful to the environment, they will also help you surpass your energy performance goals.

Our Energy Innovation Services

Energy Audits

Our diagnostics team will look at exactly how your building and all its systems function as a whole. We’ll help evaluate and uncover ways in which it might be wasting energy or underperforming and recommend measures that can reverse this. Our energy audit services will not only vastly improve your building’s operational efficiency and save you money, it will decrease the time you spend dealing with complaints; creating a happier, healthier environment for your occupants.

Energy Modeling and Analysis

We use cutting-edge technology to virtually look at your entire building and how each of its components and systems function together. By doing so, we can analyze and predict monthly energy bills, lower annual costs and create a stronger development that operates more efficiently. We’ll help your design team weigh up alternative strategies for improving building performance and running costs, while also helping you to meet your energy saving goals, LEED credits or local and international energy requirements.

Measurement and Verification

Once we’ve calculated the predicted savings you could make by carrying out energy modeling and audits, we can then verify the exact total through measurement, performance data trending, system diagnostics and utility bill analysis. We’ll directly compare the estimated savings from your energy model to the detailed data we collect to define your project’s true energy savings.

Daylight Modeling and Analysis

We use some of the most advanced lighting / daylighting analysis tools on the market to help revolutionize daylight design solutions. We can work from your design team’s 2D or 3D CAD / Revit files to create an accurate representation of the space, taking into account glazing properties, surface reflectance, furniture layout, shading and light distribution.

Renewable Energy Strategies

Did you know that using renewable technologies such as solar, wind, geothermal or biomass to generate electricity and heating is actually cleaner and more cost effective than traditional methods? Our renewable energy study will look at everything from energy demand and efficiency to annual operating costs and carbon emissions to determine the best strategy for your project.

CxA Commissioning

Commissioning is at the heart of what we do. It’s a vital process that is employed right from the first design stages through to handover and beyond, to help guarantee the operational success of your project. Our owners and developers have commissioned our expertise in everything from high tech laboratories to high performance schools.

BIM (Building Information Management)

Our approach to using Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) with international standards in Building Information Modelling across all our projects means we dramatically reduce mistakes and waste, in turn helping you to save both crucial time and money.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Energy innovation refers to the development and application of new and advanced technologies, processes, and ideas aimed at improving the efficiency, sustainability, and overall performance of energy systems. It encompasses a wide range of activities, from the invention of novel energy sources and generation methods to the optimization of existing technologies for cleaner and more effective energy production and consumption.

In the context of addressing global challenges such as climate change and energy security, energy innovation plays a crucial role in transitioning towards a more sustainable and resilient energy landscape. This can include breakthroughs in renewable energy technologies, improvements in energy storage systems, advancements in energy efficiency practices, and the integration of smart technologies for better energy management.

Energy modeling is a computational method used to simulate and analyze the energy performance of buildings, systems, or entire communities. It involves creating virtual models that replicate real-world conditions to assess how different factors impact energy consumption, efficiency, and sustainability. These models use mathematical algorithms to simulate the interactions between various components, such as building materials, heating and cooling systems, lighting, and occupancy patterns.
Energy modeling serves several purposes, including predicting energy usage, identifying areas for improvement, and informing decision-making in the design and operation of buildings. It helps architects, engineers, and policymakers optimize energy efficiency, reduce environmental impact, and make informed choices about energy-related investments.
By providing insights into the potential outcomes of different design choices, energy modeling contributes to the development of more sustainable and resource-efficient structures and systems. It plays a vital role in the broader context of sustainable design and helps achieve energy goals, such as minimizing carbon emissions and promoting the use of renewable energy sources.

Daylight modeling is a simulation-based process used in architecture and building design to analyze and optimize natural light conditions within a space. It involves creating virtual models of buildings and their surroundings to predict how daylight interacts with the interior spaces throughout the day and across different seasons. This simulation helps designers understand and control the distribution of natural light, informing decisions about window placement, shading devices, and overall building orientation.

The goal of daylight modeling is to maximize the use of natural light, reducing the need for artificial lighting and improving energy efficiency. It considers factors such as the sun’s position, geographical location, architectural elements, and materials to simulate and visualize how daylight will illuminate interior spaces. By assessing the quality and quantity of natural light, designers can create spaces that are not only well-lit but also enhance occupants’ well-being, productivity, and comfort.

Incorporating daylight modeling into the design process allows architects and planners to create sustainable and visually appealing environments while minimizing reliance on artificial lighting, contributing to energy savings and environmental sustainability.
