GCE Services Hiring! Commercial Building Energy Efficiency Manager

By Green Coast on 13 Sep 2017

GCE Services is looking for someone experienced in energy efficiency building operations: retro-commissioning, managing building automation systems, and advising public and commercial clients on energy efficient capital upgrades. The new position, which requires at least five years experience in construction management, architecture, green building or a related field, will report to GCE Director of Energy Services Joe Ryan.

Ryan says that GCE Services has significantly expanded its scope in the last two years, becoming the energy manager for the City of New Orleans. GCE Services has benchmarked energy use in all City-owned building such as public libraries, police stations and City Hall, and is also performing direct management of energy systems in some of the newer City properties.

“Our energy manager is a higher-level position, because the right person will need a large skill set and be very familiar with complex building energy systems,” says Ryan. “Plus, the manager will also be involved with our work with the Energy Smart program, and working with area schools.”

GCE Services contracts with Aptim, the company that is administering Entergy’s Energy Smart program. By auditing energy use at City-owned buildings and publicly-funded properties such as charter schools, GCE is creating a pipeline of projects that could benefit from Energy Smart. The program has two components—lighting and HVAC system—for its commercial and industrial program, Ryan says.

“We’ve been working with the City to fill out the Energy Smart project applications so they can benefit from the program incentives and become more energy efficient,” Ryan says. “Additionally, we’ve been collaborating with charter schools on the Energy Smart program so they can make improvements to their HVAC systems, resulting in energy savings and improved comfort.”

GCE Services Managing Partner Jackie Dadakis says the new position reflects the company’s growth and need for highly skilled staff.

“For the right person, this will be a rewarding job,” Dadakis says. “GCE is at the forefront of green energy management services and the energy efficiency manager will not only be consulting on possible improvements, but will often be overseeing actual improvements.”
