What’s New with EPIC: Expansion of Additional Cost/Savings Features


As a pioneer in cloud-based building energy performance assessment technology, SRS has earned a reputation for developing cutting edge software, data, and predictive analytics solutions. Our latest innovation is the Energy Performance Improvement Calculator (EPIC™).

EPIC continues to be enthusiastically adopted across the ecosystem of energy efficiency project professionals for its ability to help drive sales of higher ticket, higher margin equipment.

New Features

Based on EPIC user requests, we are pleased to announce the expansion of EPIC’s Additional Cost/Savings features. This new functionality enables EPIC users to quickly integrate custom improvements and additional costs/savings items in their project scenarios.

  1. Additional Cost/Savings

    • EPIC now enables users, via Other Improvement/Cost > Additional Cost/Savings, to select from the following menu items:

    • Once selected, EPIC will include the cost/savings item in its calculation and reporting of key financial metrics.

      For example, a user may select Maintenance Cost to integrate the cost of a single or multi-year equipment maintenance contract in their EPIC Report analytics.

  2. CO2e Emissions Reduction

    • EPIC now calculates CO2e emissions reduction, in tons, based on user selected energy improvements. This calculation, which is typically of interest to property owners and managers with sustainability programs, is now displayed as a Key Energy Savings Metric.
