Our Industry is Changing

Efficiency Engineering has operated out of Cambridge for over  25 years to help building owners save energy.  Its foundation is based on heating plant retrofit projects in Ontario where capital upgrades are value-engineered to be right-sized for the building and operate more efficiently.

Lately we have undergone a change in philosophy where micro cogeneration (combined heat and power) is now a realistic addition to a project.  These systems operate continuously to augment the facility’s electrical consumption needs but the key component to a successful system is how it integrates with the various thermal systems, and we are the experts in this field.

Cogeneration is the new standard.  This technology fundamentally changes the focus surrounding a heating plant by generating revenue, rather than consuming it.  Don’t let another boiler retrofit project pass by without considering cogeneration.
