Retrofit Program Announced

April 15, 2013
MINNEAPOLIS — Honeywell announced a new program for contractors that will provide them with the tools and expertise they need to advise commercial building owners on energy retrofit opportunities that can reduce energy consumption.

Through Honeywell’s new Energy and Environmental Optimization (EEO) program, contractors can be certified to assess and recommend energy savings for commercial buildings and help owners reduce a growing cost driver.

The EEO program will assist contractors in helping building owners manage fluctuating energy costs, stakeholder expectations, and regulatory or market mandates by utilizing a broad portfolio of Honeywell energy-efficiency products and solutions.

“Today’s energy costs are unstable and will likely continue to rise,” said Tom Rosback, general manager of commercial control systems at Honeywell. “Additionally, utility companies are billing customers based on energy demand and usage, while the government and market are mandating energy efficiency action. Currently, 65 percent of commercial and industrial buildings were built before 1985 and lack energy efficiency. This is the equation that proves the need for a new breed of contractor who can show end-users the value of improving building functionality, meeting mandates, and increasing energy efficiency.”

The EEO program certification is comprised of two components: the EEO toolset and the EEO training program. The EEO toolset guides contractors through the process of assessing a building for energy savings. The PC-based software tool walks EEO-certified contractors through the prospecting, assessing, modeling, and proposal stages of the EEO life cycle.

Used in conjunction with the EEO training program, building owners have a reliable, cost-effective solution for their energy challenges. The EEO training program is comprised of e-learning courses and an instructor-led energy-sales training course to help building professionals seize opportunities that focus on energy and environmental optimization while managing their costs and environmental challenges.
