Power and Energy Systems

Experts from around the country are predicting double digit increases in energy costs in 2009. Energy supply budgets, energy conservation measures and operational cost reductions have never been more important.

To combat rising energy costs, owners need a multi-discipline team of electrical, mechanical process and structural engineers to evaluate their current energy usage, perform life cycle cost analysis and prepare recommendations and designs to effectively reduce energy consumption.

Our engineers have performed more than 100 energy audits for manufacturing plants, major office buildings, hotels, restaurants and other commercial facilities, saving the owner hundreds of thousands of dollars in energy costs.

In addition, R.E. Warner is in the forefront of planning and designing emergency generating systems to maintain critical operations during any unforeseen power outage.
