OG&E and AOG Joint Weatherization Program

ACEEE “Exemplary Program” Award for Energy Efficiency Programs

Frontier Energy’s EnerTrek helped the Joint Weatherization Program win an ACEEEAmerican Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy “Exemplary Program” award. EnerTrek is an online database and modeling tool used to record contractor measure inputs for each home and calculates actual kW and kWh savings by measure. The OG&E and AOG Joint Weatherization Program used EnerTrek and home audit/inspections to determine the mix of cost-effective measures. The measures were implemented by contractors trained in home weatherization to achieve the savings.

Incentive Program Design and Implementation

Atmos Energy’s Mid-Tex Gas Appliance Rebate Program

Frontier Energy has a two-fold approach for meeting utilities’ efficiency and demand-reduction targets: 1) use proven methods in under-tapped market segments and 2) reduce time and costs by streamlining administration. Our team has been around the block—residential, commercial, industrial, agricultural, low-income, multifamily, rentals—and are skilled at leading complex projects with lots of moving parts.

Engagement & Education

Engagement and Education

Developing ongoing, loyal relationships with consumers, trade allies, contractors, and stakeholders takes creativity and hard work. Posting a Facebook ad about your new rebate program or sending an email blast about an upcoming webinar is not enough anymore. We go deeper—and are braver—with innovative technology, multilingual outreach, superb customer service, and providing expert resources.

Recent. Relevant. Comprehensive. That’s the knowledge you want in an engineer who estimates energy savings from new technology, designs building electrification projects, evaluates effectiveness of energy systems, and develops new codes and standards. Frontier Energy’s full-time, multidisciplinary engineering staff bring decades of experience to every project—along with the desire to continuously push the envelope.

Case Studies


Evaluation, Measurement, and Verification

Frontier Energy’s team uses evaluation, measurement and verification to answer three burning questions: 1) Did the program deliver results? 2) How certain are savings of a new program? and 3) How can the program improve? Our advanced data acquisition and analytics create exciting opportunities in automated EM&V. We take pride in our reputation for technically rigorous EM&V that withstands independent review.

Community Choice Energy Aggregation

Community Choice Energy

Community choice aggregation is a game-changer for communities and utilities. First established in California, nine states have legislation that allows CCAs to form. Frontier Energy helped establish the first CCAs, which provide consumers with local control over the electricity supply. We also work with CCAs to develop and implement programs that increase efficiency, encourage EV adoption, and achieve local sustainability goals. Our team can help you make sense of this new opportunity to provide energy to consumers.

Low-income, Rural, and Multifamily Programs

Low Income Programs - AEP Texas program served over 4,000 low-income households since 2007. In 2018 of the AEP program, average savings per customer were 4,129 kWh and awarded $1,165,415 in incentives to partners like non-profit community organizations. -Frontier Energy

Increasing EE investments in hard-to-reach customers benefits everyone: reduced energy use, more resilient communities, and lowering bills for customers who need it most. These customers—residential and commercial—can be difficult to engage and encourage to take action. Frontier Energy overcomes barriers by leveraging data and experience, and cultivating a wide-ranging network of program partners to reach low-income customers across the service territory.

Deemed Savings, TRMs, and Calculations

Deemed Savings Engine

Frontier developed deemed savings calculations to simplify evaluation, measurement, and verification of energy efficiency measures. Now deemed savings are the foundation of energy efficiency Technical Reference Manuals that govern savings calculations for prescriptive measures. Our team has also developed standardized calculation procedures for supermarket refrigeration systems, commercial foodservice appliances, and biomass heating, while contributing to the development of GTI’s Source Energy and Emissions Analysis Tool (SEEAT), DOE’s Home Energy Score, and DOE’s carbon capture and sequestration.
