RDE provides independent analysis to help end-users, building owners and data center operators understand how they use energy and what they can do to use less.
Throughout our work we strive to distill clear pragmatic advice from technical detail. We have found this to be highly effective in helping decision makers to quickly see both the strength of a business case, and whether a specific energy saving measure makes sense for their current situation.

Tenants in New York can get 50% off our energy modeling service under the NYSERDA Commercial Tenant Program. This is a great way to deliver high performance (low running cost) tenant space; allowing ideas to be tested out virtually before committing to them in practice.
RDE is an expert on energy modeling of tenant space, and was modeler for three of five pilot projects NYSERDA ran while developing this program:
Energy modeling can be used to achieve up tp 28 points for Commercial Interior projects in LEED v4.
NYSERDA are temporarily doubling their cost-share funding for FlexTech energy studies. Our clients in New York can now get up to 100% off our fees for qualifying energy analysis - inlcuding Local Law 97 Studies. 50% is paid by NYSERDA (as before) with the remaining 50% paid upon installation of one or more measures recommended in the study.
We have Certified Energy Auditors on staff. Between RDE and our international partner hurleypalmerflatt, we have helped drive down energy costs at over 700 buildings worldwide since 2005.
