Achieve your energy and sustainability goals with proven solutions.

Identify. Implement. Verify.

The road to energy sustainability involves three phases: identification, implementation, and verification.

Whichever phase you’re in, DIR can help you successfully navigate it and move on to the next one if necessary. Each phase has multiple components that DIR can assist with or we can take you through each step of every phase providing a turnkey experience.


The first step to achieving your energy and sustainability goals is identifying them. Most companies want to get more efficient but aren’t sure how to take what they have and transform it. DIR helps businesses identify custom energy efficiency measures and develop cost-effective energy retrofit solutions. The way to get started is with an audit or benchmarking.

ASHRAE Energy & Water Audits

Energy audits are the first step to optimizing your building’s energy use. During an energy audit, a trained engineer visits your building, identifies potential energy-saving improvements, and recommends energy cost-saving opportunities. Water audits entail analyzing all water systems including chilled water systems.

Portfolio Management

Managing energy use across a portfolio of buildings or campuses is a challenge. However, the payoff is significant savings when effectively managed. DIR’s experience from mechanical rooms to boardrooms enables us to identify savings opportunities in your buildings to optimize energy costs and use across your entire portfolio.

DIR services funding


DIR has extensive experience working with energy efficiency programs nationwide. We help companies develop a project scope, perform energy analysis, and provide documentation to secure and maximize utility incentives and other applicable funding.

DIR can identify project financing opportunities such as Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE), on-bill financing, grants, rebates, and other incentives offered by local utilities or outside programs.


The next step after discovering energy and sustainability opportunities is making a plan and implementing it. For this step it’s critical you move forward with the right plan and an experienced team to avoid downtime and ensure a successful outcome. DIR can provide a trained and experienced team to implement low-cost improvements, as well as construction and retrofit system services.

DIR services design build

Design Build

DIR has a network of trusted design-build firms, contractors, and equipment vendors to facilitate implementation of your project from start to finish. DIR provides key technical expertise to ensure basis of design (BOD), owner’s project requirement (OPR), and energy performance goals are documented and understood throughout the entire project.


The final step to achieving energy and sustainability goals is verification. There may be some fine-tuning needed to optimize a new system. Monitoring energy post-installation provides insights into unexpected obstacles and helps you resolve issues before they become costly. And measuring is the only way to show your investment paid off.

Measurement & Verification (M&V)

DIR uses measurements and trends from loggers, sensors, meters, and specialized equipment. We help you verify energy use to ensure your project is saving you energy and your building is operating as expected.
