News and Announcements
Applied Energy Consulting is proud to be presenting a webinar to the Canadian and American utilities, titled “Guidelines for the development of smart cities for demand management for utilities”
This webinar will present the latest research and development, lessons learned, and best practices for electric utilities on planning and design strategies to mitigate resource consumption to reduce energy and carbon footprint to assist in low-carbon future cityscapes. The focus topics will be the electrification of transportation and building stock, energy demand management, and energy equity.
This webinar will be live on Thursday, August 24 at 1:00 PM ET.
October 11 2022: How NECB 2020 Lighting Power Density Values Differ from NECB 2017
NECB 2020 Has More Stringent Lighting Power Density Allowance Compared to NECB 2017.
Lighting can be a major energy and cost for a building. Under the NECB 2020, there have been significant changes in the lighting power density and lighting allowances compared to pervious editions of the NECB. This comparative graph shows the difference in the two versions of NECB and it can be seen that the NECB 2020 is more stringent. Therefore, accurate estimation of lighting power density is essential to ensure compliance with the NECB 2020.
Please consult Applied Energy Consulting to help you choose the right type of lighting and help you reduce your building energy, carbon emissions, and operating costs. In addition, we can help you prepare federal and provincial grant and funding applications to finance your lighting upgrade journey.
May 25 2022: How Building Envelope Optimization can Save you Energy, GHG Emissions and Cost
Building envelope (i.e., walls, roofs, floors, windows, and doors) can significantly impact space heating, cooling, humidity control, and air-conditioning. Depending on the weather, building envelope-related energy use can represent upwards of 60 percent of a building’s annual energy use. Therefore, accurate estimation of thermal energy transmission from the building envelope is essential to ensure the proper sizing of heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC) equipment, lowering operational costs, mitigating greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and providing thermal comfort for the building occupants.
By doing your site energy auditing and modeling for envelope related upgrades, we can help you design your building to:
Reduce infiltration of unwanted outside air.
Choose optimal wall and roof insulation during the new construction or retrofit of your building.
Comply building envelope design with Alberta Building Code, National Energy Code for Building, and ASHRAE 90.1.
Avoid thermal bridges in your walls, windows, and roofs.
Optimizing windows selection using detailed energy simulation, quantifying the impact of glass, frame, assembly U value, shading coefficient, and heat gain.
Offer an integrated multidisciplinary process to maximize passive solar gain and sunlight to reduce interior lighting.
And doing envelope design accounting for all synergies with the mechanical, electrical, architectural, and site conditions.
Please consult Applied Energy Consulting to help you choose the right type and economic thickness of insulation, avoid thermal design pitfalls and help you reduce your building energy, carbon emissions, and operating costs. In addition, we can help you prepare federal and provincial grant and funding applications to finance your envelope upgrade journey.
Our experience in envelope energy optimization ranges from vintage and heritage buildings to #LEED, #BOMA, and #GreenGlobes certified buildings, including passive houses and building integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) analysis.
March 09 2022: AEC's collaboration with the Asian Productivity Organization
Applied Energy Consulting was fortunate to present and mediate a five day energy conference by the Asian Productivity Organization on “Responsible consumption to address energy challenges”. Ali Syed, Ph.D., P.Eng. spoke about #energy and #ghgemissions and how to comply with #iso50001 and #climatechange mandates. Let us know if you need any help in #energyefficiency #ghgemissions reduction and #netcarbonzero building design.

Feb 2022: AEC has been Awarded a Book Contract on Urban Agriculture
Dec 2021: AEC signed an MOU with the Clean Energy 4 Africa (CE4A)
Clean Energy 4 Africa (CE4A) is happy to announce a new partnership with Applied Energy Consulting (AEC), to jointly work on consultancy projects, research activities and publications, and energy capacity-building programs in Africa and globally. The partnership MOU was officially signed on December 16, 2021, by Dr. Mohamed Alhaj, Founder and Director of Clean Energy 4 Africa, and Dr. Syed, President of AEC, Canada.
Applied Energy Consulting (www.appliedenergy.ca) is a Canadian energy consulting firm driven by an ambition for a carbon-neutral future by incorporating innovative, flexible, and economical energy management for residential, commercial, institutional, healthcare, and municipal infrastructure. AEC is a team of internationally recognized experts in energy auditing, energy efficiency, energy management, renewable energy design, and GHG mitigation. In addition, AEC is actively involved in cutting-edge research in energy systems, carbon sequestration, and net-zero communities.
As part of this agreement, both parties will collaborate in consultancy projects, research projects, and publications and cooperate in designing and delivering technical training programs.
In recognition of this partnership, Dr. Mohamed Alhaj, founder and director of CE4A, said: We are excited about this partnership with Applied Energy Consulting! I am confident that we can implement impactful projects to accelerate the sustainable energy transition in Africa.
Dr. Syed, President of AEC, said: “I am excited about this wonderful opportunity. There are a lot of synergies between the CE4A and Applied Energy Consulting, and we can offer more customized solutions to the energy management and climate change initiatives in both Africa and North America.”
