Active Energy Management

Optimize Your Performance – Drive Your Savings

McKinstry’s Active Energy Management (AEM) is a professional service that provides a technology enabled solution supported by commissioning engineers and facility staff. It delivers a facility management strategy that enables clients to make effective and timely decisions at all levels of an organization and focus on reducing operational and energy costs. The program implements energy savings measures through equipment enhancements and building automation system analytics. This unique service combines ongoing commissioning with technology providing a valuable partnership for clients to reach operational goals.


McKinstry understands the many facility and maintenance challenges our clients face in today’s world such as limited staff resources, critical and immediate need for change, and the ability to drive long-term sustainability. Our team is focused on client-specific needs and is flexible in how we deploy resources with the technology, based on industry aligned solutions and best practices. The result is the delivery of a program designed to align with key performance indicators (KPIs) to meet specific needs. We pair engineering analysis with technology to implement a comprehensive and effective program. We have a team of energy and commissioning engineers that can be deployed on-site, remotely, or in combination depending on client needs. In partnership with our technology development team, our commissioning engineers will interpret the results of the analytics, perform root cause analysis of the faults generated, create actionable opportunities to correct deficiencies or improve operations, and work to overcome challenges to implementing the opportunities.
