Low carbon electrification (LCE) is the reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions using clean electricity instead of GHG emitting forms of energy such as natural gas, diesel, propane, and gasoline. Local, provincial, and federal governments are legislating pathways to tackle climate change while creating more jobs and economic opportunities for people, businesses, and communities. LCE is already playing an important role in this plan.

Prism is dedicated to helping you address climate change through reducing GHG emissions from the built environment. With 30 years of local industry experience, Prism has a proven track record of solving complex system integration issues with our in-house team of electrical, mechanical, and energy engineers.

Our holistic approach considers all building systems and loads within a facility, ensuring the highest level of GHG emission reductions within an optimized solution are achieved.

Our LCE services include:

  1. Study - Evaluation of energy use and emissions and technical recommendations which consist of concept designs that reduce GHGs emissions by switching to a lower carbon energy source.
  2. Quantify – Engineering calculations and modelling of projected energy savings, emission reductions and project costs.
  3. Feasibility – Review of existing building systems including electrical capacity for suitability of proposed measures.
  4. Business Case – Presentation of energy cost and GHG emission savings, incentive funding, returns on investment, and non-energy benefits for LCE measures.
  5. Implementation – Detailed mechanical and electrical design and engineering support for the implementation of LCE measures.
  6. Monitoring & Verification – post-retrofit utility and meter data analysis to ensure anticipated savings are achieved, and to allow for project success to be shared.
