The deadline for completion of the energy assessments required for boilers and process heaters by EPA's Boiler MACT (40 CFR 63, Subpart DDDDD) is rapidly approaching. The Boiler MACT requires a one-time energy assessment (EA) for major sources to be completed by January 31, 2016 and for area sources that was due March 21, 2014. EPA mandates that the EAs be completed by a qualified energy assessor (QEA).

Trinity Consultants has extensive qualifications to assist you in these assessments. We have 10 registered certified energy auditors (CEAs) nationwide, including one CEA located in the Atlanta local office. The CEA certification is given by the Association of Energy Engineers to qualified professionals with demonstrated expertise and experience in the field of energy auditing.

The Atlanta office alone has completed Boiler MACT EAs for several major sources and area sources in industries such as power generation, petrochemical, fiber manufacturing, automotive and wood products. An overview of the EA process consists of visual inspections of the boiler and process heater systems, evaluation of operational characteristics of the boilers, process heaters and major energy use systems, review of the facility's energy management practices, identification of energy conservation measures along with estimates of savings potentials.
