Energy Efficiency

Paving the way for a brighter, energy efficient future

NEXTGEN offers leading edge energy consulting in systems and technologies to improve the sustainability of new and existing residential and commercial buildings and the optimization of industrial plants.

These include energy efficiency, retrofit and green program design and management services to facilitate resource efficient, affordable and sustainable homes, offices and industrial plants.

Energy Audit and Analysis

Effective management of energy-consuming systems can lead to significant cost and energy savings, lower maintenance expenses and extended equipment life. The NEXTGEN Energy Audit evaluates the efficiency of all energy intensive processes and systems in a building / facility to determine what measures can be implemented to reduce energy use and save costs.

The Audit documents the use and occupancy of the building / facility, its condition and the condition of it’s systems equipment. It also recommends ways to improve energy efficiency through improvements in operation and maintenance and the installation of energy conservation measures.

Industrial Plants

Two global trends, volatile energy prices and increasing environmental regulation and public concern over growing green house gas (GHG) emissions have combined to drive the mounting pressure on industry to manage energy more efficiently. With global consumption expected to rise by 53% by 2035, the industrial sector can expect to incur increasing scrutiny as people everywhere focus on reducing energy and fossil fuel use, as well as carbon gas emissions

The integrated strengths of NEXTGEN’s energy efficiency and consulting teams are committed to helping industries develop effective energy efficiency solutions so that plants can save energy and reduce their impact on the environment. Through instrumented and diagnostic energy audits, our experts can help identify sources of energy consumption, provide insights into modes of better utilization of fossil fuel resources and provide alternatives to current energy consumption models.

Residential / Commercial Buildings

NEXTGEN also offers comprehensive energy audit services for homes and offices to assess how much energy the building uses and to evaluate what measures can be taken to improve efficiency.

NEXTGEN’s professional technicians will walk through your home / office and visually inspect each system to yield a preliminary estimate of savings potential and a list of cost saving opportunities through improvements in operational and maintenance practices. Next, a detailed analysis of the building’s energy use patterns helps to identify appropriate energy conservation measures along with detailed project cost and savings information for capital investment decisions.

Energy Efficiency – New Construction

As India’s real estate market continues to grow, the total area occupied by buildings is projected to increase from 8 billion square meters in 2005 to 41 billion square meters in 2030. Buildings already account for more than 30% of the country’s electrical consumption. At this rate, India’s power generation must grow by 6.5% every year from 2011 to 2017 to keep pace.

Energy efficiency is the cheapest and fastest way to close the energy supply and demand gap.

Implementing standard energy efficiency and retrofit measures at the design stage for new construction could save the country the need for 2,988 megawatts (MW) of electricity and save 42 billion dollars annually.

Apart from generating tremendous financial benefits, accelerating energy efficiency provides a singular opportunity to improve public health and combat climate change through the reduced use of fossil fuels and the consequent reduction in green house gas emissions.

NEXTGEN works in the real estate, new construction market to help builders improve the efficiency of their buildings, combining systems engineering techniques and new technologies to produce extremely energy efficient residences and offices. Incorporating energy and material saving strategies at the design stage, NEXTGEN fosters the use of innovative resources so that owners pay lower monthly utility bills and buildings are more energy efficient and have a minimal impact on the environment.
