    Denver Rescue Mission Committee

    The Lawrence Street Shelter is the Denver Rescue Mission's central outreach location. Tens of thousands of poor and needy people come to this facility each year for shelter, food, clothing, medical care, client services, and chapel services.

    We propose to perform a Technical Energy Audit to identify Energy Conservation Measures (ECMs) with moderate to high savings potential and possible capital-intensive projects. The audit requires detailed field data gathering, system investigation, and rigorous engineering analysis. It provides detailed project cost and savings calculations with a high level of confidence sufficient for investment decisions. This information will then be used to select items for implementation as part of the ASHRAE 2013 Sustainability Project.

    This group was started in June 2012 to accommodate the growing community of energy modelers in the Rocky Mountain region.
