Energy analysts help clients understand potential opportunities for energy-efficient improvements to their structures by measuring a building’s energy efficiency using information gathered from meters and utility bills and advising on conservation methods. They visit sites to inspect facilities, assess their energy conservation measures and programs, and conduct energy audits. They measure efficiency, analyze data on energy used, develop energy models for buildings, recommend improvements, and assist contractors with technical support during the installation process.
Energy analysts gather specific data, including inspecting the efficiency of building construction, mechanical systems, and electrical systems using voltmeters, flue gas analyzers, and light meters. They test buildings and work closely with building owners, contractors, engineers, and financiers to complete projects while monitoring energy transactions throughout all stages. They identify customer needs and maintain their knowledge of the energy market while collecting and analyzing data. Energy analysts need a minimum bachelor's degree in engineering or related fields.
