ConSol determined the energy savings for each of Boral’s 14 different roofing products, including radiant barrier add-ons. With this data, ConSol created a utility cost calculator that would enable Boral customers to generate a close estimate of potential utility bill savings by combining different Boral roofing products with housing specifications. This cost calculator included utility rate structures and tier for all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia.
We help builders and manufacturers prepare for the financial and operational impacts of energy code changes, as well as provide strategic guidance during the code development cycle to ensure that the new rules are cost effective, practical, and implementable for the industry. We also work with relevant regulatory bodies to ensure builders’ needs receive formal recognition in energy design calculations for building compliance and performance.
We leverage advanced modeling capabilities to conduct technical analyses that quantify the energy, carbon, and cost impacts of new technologies, policies, and building practices. In particular, our energy simulation modeling has been pivotal in helping manufacturers understand code and technical opportunities for existing products and products under development.
